Join us in Charmes, France, for the unveiling of Specialized's 2014 Trail line. We spent 3 days examining and riding the bikes, wheels and tires that make up this category of equipment. The shortest travel bike in this category, the Camber sees both a new carbon and an EVO version introduced for 2014, and there's nifty new SWAT technology as well as rad new tires to discover too (also check out the 2014 Stumpjumper First Look feature here, and join us for ONE Lap to see the bikes in action).
The Camber is a short travel trail bike, designed for riders who need to get there and back and have a good amount of fun on the way. With its svelte looks and modest travel, we were surprised at just how capable the Camber is, especially in the Evo version. Tale of the tape below:
