Camino Al is built for those moments when the road turns into trail and the bridleway drops off into single track. Spritely and comfortable on the tarmac with enough in reserve to explore off-road trails, it transforms your riding experience and turns dead ends into possibilities.

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 40 mm or 650b x 47mm 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.

SRAM Apex1

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.

40 11 3.64 28.2 102.5
40 42 0.95 28.2 26.9
Love Mud Aspect Flat

A flatish bar increases versatility, giving you extra control off-road.

Expedition geometry

Fast and responsive even when loaded up. With a lightweight aluminium frame, carbon forks, long wheel base and an extended head tube, the geometry promotes an upright riding position for all-day riding comfort.

Cable routing

External cable routing facilitates maintenance when you haven’t got access to a full workshop; cables are fully housed to keep your machinery running smoothly in all conditions.

Tyre clearance

Big tyre clearance for tackling mixed terrains: up to 650b x 47 mm or 700c x 40 mm

Powerful and firm braking

Well-modulated seatstay mounted hydraulic disk brakes will help to bring you to a halt and reduce the risk of wheel lock when that elk appears out of nowhere.

Carbon fork

Lightweight, strong and responsive with an alloy steerer; kitted out with mudguard mounts which accommodate racks for lightweight loads

Rack mounts

Opt for the modern ultra-light bikepacking luggage or load up with panniers on the rear rack mounts.

Frame spec

Lightweight, durable and strong aluminium frame.

You can also take into consideration the standover height to ensure you pick a bike that will be a good fit. If you measure your inside leg and ensure there is a minimum of an inch from the toptube to your crotch this will give you enough seatpost adjustment to find your optimum saddle height.

So far so very good

Very early days as I only picked the bike up at the weekend but first impressions are definitely great. Have to admit I'm not coming from anything too high spec - £250 Ridgeback which has done good service to be fair - but the feel of my new Camino Al is certainly better in every way. Problem at the moment is doing everything else I need to do in life as all I want to do is ride. And I'm not the only one who likes the look of it - the owner of the café where I called today was very complimentary, though that maybe because the colour coordinated nicely with his teapots. Alpkit customer service seems to get a good press from most reviewers here and I'm happy to confirm that mine has been a very positive experience so far.
