The CAMBER is the perfect bike for everything from weekend trail rides to all-day epic excursions. We developed the Camber to give trail riders everything they need, and nothing they don’t. What exactly does that mean? The answer is the perfect blend of performance, capability, and value. The 29-inch-specific, 110mm-travel Camber delivers a lightweight frame (both alloy and FACT carbon), a trail-specific build and geo for confident riding at speed, and ultimately the ideal balance of efficiency and plush suspension performance for every rider.
WHAT FACT 11m full-carbon frame and rear triangle on S-Works model, 9m with M5 alloy rear triangle on other models featuring internal Command Post IR routing, 110mm of rear wheel travel, integrated headset, and Trail Geometry.
WHY Provides a premium, lightweight option with just the right travel for most riders, and fits perfectly between Epic and Stumpjumper FSR options. Command Post IR cable routing for a clean and tangle-free setup.
HOW The carbon front triangle keeps the weight to a bare minimum while boosting torsional stiffness. The geo is specially adapted for the Trail experience with slacker head and seat tube angles to deliver a more playful/less aggressive position for balanced climbing and descending capabilities.
AUTOSAG SUSPENSION TUNING
WHAT Revolutionary Specialized technology, manufactured by Fox and RockShox (model dependent), automatically sets the proper sag and air pressure in your shock. (On all models except Base.)
WHY Quick and simple adjustment that guarantees the perfect setting for optimal suspension performance.
HOW In the saddle, the rider pushes the specially designed transfer port on the shock to release air pressure until a set level, based on the rider’s weight. This equalises the positive and negative chambers and achieves perfect sag.
WHAT Roval Control SL 29 wheelset with carbon rims (S-Works model only, or aftermarket). The Expert EVO level bike features the Traverse 29 wheelset.
WHY Reduces weight, increases stiffness and durability, and absorbs impact better than alloy wheels.
HOW We designed this ultra-lightweight, carbon 29er wheelset with wide rims to accept large-volume tyres. The carbon rim is stronger and stiffer than alloy, so the wheels remain in-true longer, and absorb impact better. The combination of cross-laced and radial-laced spokes also reduces weight and improves overall strength.
SPECIALIZED COMMAND POST IR DROPPER POST
WHAT Remote-adjust, three-position mechanical 100mm or 125mm-drop seatpost. Features new internal cable routing and convenient air valve location.
WHY Allows rider to lower and raise saddle, on the fly, for more efficiency and control over varying terrain.
HOW The handlebar-mounted lever compresses the seatpost to one of three ride heights. Rider can choose from the Climbing position (full height) for maximum power output on climbs and flats; Cruiser position (35mm drop) for undulating terrain; and Descender position (125mm drop) for maximum clearance and manoeuvrability on technical descents.
M5 ALLOY FRAME
WHAT M5 alloy frame featuring Trail Geometry, 110mm of travel, concentric link, tapered headtube with 1.5-inch lower bearing, PF30 bottom bracket, 142+ rear hub spacing, low standover height, and water bottle clearance.
WHY Creates a stronger, lighter, great-handling bike designed to tackle technical singletrack. New concentric link makes for a lighter weight frame while increasing frame stiffness.
HOW Designing the bike from the ground up with a two-piece toptube and shock carriage enables us to create an active, yet efficient FSR suspension, and reach our lofty design targets in terms of standover, kinematics, and bottle clearance.
