Infused with DNA from cyclocross, gravel, and adventure race bikes, the Camino’s relaxed geometry was designed for long day comfort, with a longer wheelbase, slacker head angle and lengthened headtube for a more natural riding position.
A low bottom bracket and short chainstays make it agile through the corners whilst the slackened head angle inspires confidence when descending. The aluminium frame is tough enough to take a knock or two, so you can lose yourself in the journey and push the technical envelope of your travel or even your commute.
Effortlessly adaptable, the Camino is as proficient on your local trail as it is on the open road, with tyre clearance up to 700c x 50mm or 650b x 2.1” for that added traction and comfort on bumpier terrain. Responsive and exhilarating even when loaded up with luggage; rack, bottle cage and mud guard mounts give you the option to pack up and pedal off on a self-supported ride whenever the feeling takes you. Triple cage mount on the top of the downtube allows for 2 different mounting positions for the bottle cage for extra bag clearance or to fit a Lug-Kage.
SRAM’s Apex1 groupset gives reliable shifting action at an unrivalled cost. X-Sync tooth profile ensures secure engagement between the chainring and chain to stop it from coming off. The X-Horizon derailleur and Roller Bearing Clutch to keep the chain gap consistent and taught, preventing chain slap on rough terrain.
The 1 x 11 gearing, with an 11 – 42t cassette, offers a gear range that is wide enough to cope with any terrain, opening up the alpine passes to mere mortals with enough at the top end to cruise up on the flat.
