It's not often that climbing prowess and playful handling are in the same sentence, but with the Camber Expert 27.5, you get the best of both worlds—blending all of the trail bike characteristics that you want with the XC climbing ability that you need.
This is achieved by thoughtfully combining our full FACT 9m carbon fiber Trail Chassis with our M5 alloy Camber FSR rear end. At both ends of the bike, you'll find that its nimble wheel size gives a little extra travel length to deliver plenty of plush suspension—all without going overboard on big hit capability. This means that you don't have to sacrifice efficiency, weight, or sheer speed to ride how you want. And with our Trail 27.5 Geometry and lightweight, stiff, and smooth Concentric Pivot at the rear, we can guarantee it.
The other trail component of the Camber is utility, and along these lines, it features our fully integrated SWAT Door at the down tube of the frame. Open it up, and you're able to safely and securely house your ride essentials right where you want them—on the bike.
For the build, we selected an excellent spec with components like 12-speed SRAM GX Eagle, SRAM Level TL brakes, a FOX 34 fork with ultra-stiff stanchions, a custom-tuned FOX FLOAT rear shock, and Roval Traverse Carbon rims laced to our own hubs.
- FACT 9m carbon Trail Chassis w/ Camber FSR M5 alloy rear end is mated with our Trail 27.5 Geometry to form a bike that's just as at home on the climbs as it is mowing over rough trail sections. You'll also find internal cable routing for clean lines and minimal maintenance and an integrated SWAT Door for zero-hassle storage of your trail essentials.
- FOX 34 Performance Elite 27.5 fork features 34mm aluminum stanchions that are equal parts strong and stiff, 130mm of plush, trail-taming travel, and three-position lever adjust that lets you customize the suspension on-the-fly for any trail condition.
- A SRAM GX Eagle shifting controls a wide range of gears with reliable precision.
