    2018 Men's Camber 29

    The Camber 29 is just begging to become someone's first trail tool. It's versatile, durable, and ready to be thrown up and down the trails over and over again with maximum efficiency.

    In other words, it blends all of the trail bike characteristics that you want with the XC climbing prowess that you need. This is achieved by thoughtfully combining our M5 alloy Trail Chassis with a Camber FSR rear end. The combination results in blending lightweight, rigidity, and durability in one package.

    At both ends of the bike, you'll find sufficient travel lengths that 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 29 Geometry and lightweight, stiff, and smooth Concentric Pivot at the rear, we can guarantee it.

    For the build, we selected durable, performance-driven components like Tektro Gemini hydraulic disc brakes, a reliable mix of Shimano and SRAM shifting, a custom X-Fusion rear shock, and a RockShox Recon RL fork.

    Love this bike for the price

    This is my first full suspension MTB. Upgraded to 1by up front, dropper post, clipless, and it's perfect!

    Nice ride for the price

    I have been out about 30 times on this bike now. serious upgrade from the hardtail I used to ride. Still trying to fine tune the suspension to my liking but overall a great bike. Shifting is a bit questionable however. I have brought it in to my LBS and had them adjust the gears twice. May have to upgrade rear derailleur but that will be next year overall great bike

    Spot on - needs shifting

    I am a roadie, first a foremost...but, got a MTN. First ride, the F-Der twisted into a taco shell. One would would think that the LBS would ""take care"" of it....but, I paid to go single speed front (Awesome upgrade!!!). Rear shifting was spotty at best...so, I had a SRAM Eagle drive system installed (Awesome upgrade!!!)...now, the bike simply rocks. Great bike for a serious but new rider. It is nothing but fun, more fun and more fun. I cant imagine this frame/fork is the cause of any issues I have on the trail. I am simply the weak link...what a great bike,
