In the pursuit of speed, all trails lead to the Camber. We designed it to be the ultimate speed-loving trail bike, which means that possessing equal efficiency both up and down the trail is an absolute must. To make sure of it, Cambers feature our legendary, fully active and independent FSR suspension with our Position-Sensitive Brain technology, making things even faster and more efficient. Lending to both this and handling, you'll find the Trail Geometry hallmarks of ultra-short, nimble rear ends, roomy top tubes, and 120mm of travel on 29ers. This ensures that they'll climb and handle with the speed of an XC bike and descend with the confidence of a dedicated trail bike. And to keep you prepared for anything you come across on the trail, Cambers place an emphasis on utility, with SWAT technology that keeps your essentials off your back and on your bike. If your rides see you going big and going fast, the Camber is tailor-made for you.
To create the perfect trail experience, you need a little of everything. Climbing, descending, motoring over root and rock sections—the geometry needs to lend itself to doing it all. Our Trail Geometry was developed with this knowledge at the forefront of the design, and year after year, we keep perfecting on perfection. It all starts with handling, which is why you'll find roomy top tubes and slack head tubes that inspire confidence over any terrain. And to ensure maximum efficiency, our Trail Geometry always features the short chainstays to enhance power transfer, while also keeping the rear end nice and tight for nimble handling.
FACT CARBON FSR FRAME
Whether you're going up or down the trail, it's no secret that lighter is faster. That's why our engineers obsessively work at refining our carbon frames to shave every non-essential gram. At the same time, every tube's shape and location is scrutinised, resulting in a sleek, stronger design that's optimised for utility. In terms of efficiency, it also allows for internal cable routing, massive bottom bracket shells, 142mm or greater rear hub spacing, and a tapered head tube. And for handling, FACT IS carbon frames permit a FSR 6-Pack or Concentric shock linkage for the perfect pivot location and suspension movement. In real-world terms, this equates to smoother, more responsive travel for an unparalleled ride quality.
For over 20 years, we've been continually refining our FSR Suspension platform to make sure that you get the most comfort, control, and efficiency possible out of your ride. FSR features strategically placed pivot points that effectively decouple the suspension from drivetrain and braking forces, resulting in a fully active and fully independent suspension. In other words, bob and squat are eliminated, so you'll get more power out of your pedalling and more traction on the descents.
POSITION SENSITIVE MINI BRAIN REAR SHOCK
When it comes to blending shear speed with active suspension, there's nothing better than the Brain. It's the only shock that knows the difference between rider and terrain inputs, so it’s firm when you're going for it and active over the bumps. The position-sensitive portion of the Brain is the latest technology to come from our Suspension Team. It's a novel approach to creating a Trail Brain, and it has many of the features that you know and love, only with one major difference: The inertia valve doesn't engage until the sag point, which leaves the first 25% of the travel open for an enhanced trail feel. Basically, it creates the perfect blend of speed, efficiency, and trail riding.
HAND-CRAFTED ROVAL WHEELS
The wider the better—that was our motto when it came to building wheels to withstand the demands of trail riding. It wasn't easy, but the payoff was worth it: more speed, better handling, and a longer lifespan. How? Well, with a wider rim, tyre volume increases. And as volume increases, deflection decreases. In other words, you're able to go harder with more stability and traction, with little weight penalty. Even better, each Roval trail wheel is hand-built to ensure the perfect tension, resulting in a better ride and a longer life.
