Trail

At a glance

The 2016 Specialized Camber Elite Carbon 29 is an Trail Carbon mountain bike. It has Fox suspension and a SRAM drivetrain. The bike is part of Specialized's Camber range of mountain bikes.

Everything you need, and nothing that you don’t—that’s the motto behind our Camber Elite Carbon 29. With its fast 29-inch rolling stock, this Camber is designed for speed over the entire trail. Or 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 FACT 9m carbon fibre Trail Chassis with a M5 alloy 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. So 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 that focus on strength and performance, like a SRAM one-by drivetrain, powerful Shimano SLX brakes, and a FOX 34 fork with ultra-stiff stanchions. It’s everything you need, and nothing that you don’t.
