    Men's S-Works Camber 29

    2018 Men's S-Works Camber 29

    The S-Works Camber 29 represents a new way of thinking about trail bikes, giving the handling and cushion required for challenging trails without compromising on near XC climbing ability. Think of it as a "do-anything" trail bike that's fully equipped with SWAT™ storage and a superlative build kit.

    The concept behind the Camber 29 is pretty simple—if speed is your thing, it's the only trail bike you're ever going to need. Essentially, 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 full FACT 11m carbon fiber Trail Chassis with a carbon Camber FSR rear end.

    At both ends of the bike, you'll find 120 millimeters of travel 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.

    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 components like the superlative 12-speed SRAM XX1 Eagle and SRAM Level Ultimate brakes that hold nothing back in delivering unadulterated, supreme performance. Add it all up, and you get one bike that can quite literally do it all.

    This is my XC race bike and daily shredder

    This is a great bike for XC/trail riding. I raced the 2014 Camber for three yrs and then recently got this bike to replace it. It is about the same as the last version, a little more supple in the rear end. This is pro XC level bike and a KOM killer. A lot more fun than the Epic but not as full on fast for XC racing. I have raced both and now that I don't race pro XC I prefer this over the Epic. Enjoy!

    WOAH, What a Ride!

    This bike will rip anything you throw at it, and will inspire confidence through it all; climbs, descents, fast technical, slow technical, flowy-trail, XC speed, anything! And the top-of-the-line components make sure of it. The super-stiff, full FACT 11m carbon frame, super tight and responsive Eagle XX1 drivetrain, light AND strong Level Ultimate brakes, and the plush, and dialable Fox Factory 34 fork & rear Float shock full suspension, all leave nothing more to want, or need. If you want to break all those stubborn PRs that you worked so hard to set on your previous bike(s), this is the bike that will help you get it done. LOVE THIS BIKE!

    Quite possibly the best ride out there

    I recently upgraded from 2017 camber expert to a 2018 S works Camber. This bike is absolutely phenomenal. Although I really liked the expert, this S works is a totally different ride. Hucking off big drops the Camber responds with buttery smooth landing's, very quick in the turns and the carbon rear triangle really grips on the Tight corners. Climbing hills is a breeze and on quick descents it really hugs your line.
