We're firm believers that a trail bike needs to be able to cover the entire trail at speed, and when it comes to sending it, it's tough to beat a 29er. Even more so, it's tough to beat our Camber Comp 29. With its fast 29-inch rolling stock, this Camber is designed for speed over the entire trail.

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 components that focus on strength and performance, like a Race Face 2x crankset, powerful Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, and Roval Traverse alloy wheels. It's everything you need, and nothing that you don't.

An M5 alloy Trail Chassis w/ Camber FSR rear end has been paired with our Trail 29 Geometry to create a bike that's fast, durable, and just at home on the climbs as it is mowing over rock gardens. It also features the shortest, most nimble rear end possible, and internal cable routing to make clean lines and reliable shifting through any condition.

A RockShox Reba RL 29 fork is implemented to deliver 120mm of plush, trail taming travel, while accommodating a 15x100mm thru-axle for reliable handling and durability over rough, bumpy, or loose terrain. It also features our Rx Trail Tune for the ultimate in performance and feel.

The 11-speed Shimano XT rear derailleur performs incredibly crisp shifts mile after mile, and is durable enough to take a beating.

All Tredz bikes are:

  • Fully built & ready to ride
  • Fully checked & tested by Cytech qualified mechanics
  • Available with 0% APR finance (up to 48 months) on any basket over £99
  • UK price match guarantee

Great Trail Bike

I’m coming from riding a hard tail most of my life so I can only give you my opinion. I entered a down hill enduro race and practicing on a hard tail was a hard lesson of pain so I decided to go full suspension. I went to a specialized dealer and because I’m 5 foot 8 and 150 pounds the salesman told me the new 2018 camber was perfect for me and he was right. The bike handles great and has taken all the downhill and jumps I can throw at it. It even manuals down rock gardens with ease. I clear tabletops now when I pump the suspension. I keep up with guys on full downhill bikes with no problem. This bikes only flaw is it does not come with a dropper post and for 2400 dollars it should. It’s sad it loses out to trek in reviews because of small stuff left off but I love the bike. I’m doing 48 second runs so what more could you ask??

Full Sus MTB Guide

 

Is a full-suspension mountain bike right for me?

If you’re new to the world of cycling, we highly recommend taking a look at our bike buying guide overview or our mountain bike buying guide to help you decide what type of bike is right for your needs.

When you’re choosing a full suspension mountain bike, there are a few things to look out for which can help you to work out the quality and performance you can expect from a particular model.


Suspension travel & usage

Depending on the type of mountain bike riding you’ll be doing, you may want to have longer or shorter suspension travel on your bike:

Travel

Usage

Pros

Cons

Up to 120mm

XC

Lightweight & efficient pedalling for long-distance rides

Short travel is less capable on rough & demanding trails with large jumps & drops

120 – 150mm

Trail

Lightweight, balance of climb-friendly efficiency & rough-descent capability

More weight than a shorter travel bike & less efficient climbing. Less capable on descents than a longer travel bike

150-180mm

Enduro

Capable of covering difficult & technical downhill sections. Wide enough gear range for climbing

Heavier & significantly less efficient at climbing compared to shorter travel bikes

180mm +

Downhill

Designed for highly technical & high-speed descents, with big drops and large jumps

Heavy, and inefficient at climbing. Limited gear range means most climbs will require pushing the bike


Frame material

Full-suspension MTB frames are mostly made from either aluminium or carbon fibre, with each material having its own benefits & drawbacks.

Aluminium

Aluminium is lightweight, stiff, strong, and easy to manufacture. Manufacturers often develop their own aluminium alloys, such as ALUXX by Giant. Aluminium is found on a wide range of bikes, from entry-level & enthusiast bikes, right the way up to top-spec racing bikes.

Carbon

Carbon fibre is lighter, stiffer, stronger, and more expensive than aluminium. The most affordable carbon bikes typically use medium strength carbon fibres, while the most expensive bikes use stronger ‘high modulus’ carbon. Carbon fibre frames are found on enthusiast-level bikes, right up to high-performance bikes designed for racing.


Groupset & drivetrain

A bike’s groupset, or drivetrain, is where the biggest difference in component quality is seen.
A complete groupset comprises of the following parts:

  • Chainset (aka Crankset)
  • Bottom bracket
  • Brakes
  • Brake levers
  • Shifters
  • Front & rear derailleur
  • Chain
  • Cassette
MTB Groupsets

Mountain bike groupset components are typically supplied by either Shimano or SRAM, with additional manufacturers like Formula, Hope, Magura, Tektro and TRP supplying brake systems. Shimano & SRAM both produce a range of groupsets to suit different budgets. The hierarchy table here compares the different Shimano & SRAM groupsets to determine which bikes offer the best performance.


Wheel size

You’ve probably noticed that a lot of mountain bikes come in a choice of wheel size, mainly a 27.5 inch wheel (also known as a 650B wheel) or a 29inch wheel (known as a 29er). Although there are still bikes which use 26 inch wheels, these are gradually being phased out on all but the smallest bikes. The difference between these wheel sizes can have a dramatic effect on the way a bike feels and handles out on the trail.

27.5in/650b Wheels

27.5inch wheels are smaller and lighter than 29er wheels, which makes them more agile and gives the bike a more responsive & playful nature. On the other hand, the smaller wheel size rolls less efficiently than the larger size, making the bike more prone to losing speed over rough ground and making it a little slower when climbing.

29er Wheels

29er wheels have a bigger rolling radius which makes them naturally smoother over rough ground. For this reason, a 29er mountain bike often requires less suspension travel than smaller wheeled alternatives. The downsides are an increase in weight, and the larger diameter wheels generate stronger gyroscopic forces, making the bike more stable, but less agile and responsive whilst manoeuvring.

26in Wheels

26 inch wheels were once the go-to wheel size on adult mountain bikes. However, they are now typically only found on the smallest frame sizes, and on junior bikes. 26 inch wheels are lightweight and give the bike very agile handling. The downsides to 26 inch wheels are their poor rolling resistance on rough ground, and the reduced contact patch due to the smaller wheel circumference.


Suspension components

Mountain bike suspension components (i.e. the fork or rear shock absorber) are also a way to identify the quality of a bike. While Fox and RockShox are the most common manufacturers, there are a number of brands producing suspension components for mountain bikes.

Entry level full suspension mountain bikes (up to approximately £1300) may come supplied with a fork & rear shock supplied by SR Suntour, X-Fusion or RockShox. These components will allow a limited amount of adjustment, including:

  • Coil spring preload / air spring pressure adjustment
  • Lockout switch
  • Rebound damping adjustment on models towards the top of the price range.

Mid-range & enthusiast bikes (up to approximately £3500) use components from brands including Fox, RockShox and Manitou. At this level, suspension components have features like:

  • Preload adjustment / air spring pressure adjustment
  • Rebound damping adjustment
  • Lockout switch
  • Multi-position ‘mode’ switch
  • Components towards the top end of the enthusiast price range may also feature compression damping adjustment as well.

Top of the range & competition spec bikes (over £3500) also use components from Fox, RockShox & Manitou, with a few select models using parts from Ohlins. At this price, suspension components have features including:

  • Coil spring preload adjustment / air spring pressure adjustment
  • High & low speed rebound damping adjustment
  • High & low speed compression damping adjustment
  • Lockout switch
  • Multi-position 'mode' switch
  • Advanced low-friction coatings (e.g. Fox’s golden-coloured Kashima coating)
