Trail

At a glance

The 2016 Specialized Camber Expert Carbon 650b 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.

The trail will never compromise for you, so don’t compromise on your bike. With our Camber Expert Carbon 650b, you get all the playful handling of 650b wheels, dialled-in geometry, the climbing efficiency of an XC trail bike, and enough suspension to keep hesitation at bay when picking your line. This is achieved by combining our full FACT carbon fibre Trail Chassis with a M5 aluminium Camber FSR rear end. The combination results in the perfect blend of responsiveness, lightweight, and durability. 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 650b 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 a SRAM one-by drivetrain, powerful Shimano brakes, and a FOX 34 fork with ultra-stiff stanchions. Altogether, it’s a bike that’s can do it all, and do it all with confidence.
