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.
It may be comfortable, but the Camino in no way diminishes the thrill of the ride. 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. Rack mounts, triple bottle cage mounts on the down tube and full mud guard mounts give you the option to load up and pedal off on a self-supported ride whenever the feeling takes you.
Whether you’re rediscovering your backyard, getting lost on Welsh fire track, or touring Europe the dusty way; enter into a partnership with the Camino, you never know where it might take you.
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.
Big tyre clearance for tackling mixed terrains: up to 650b x 2.1” or 700c x 50 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.
Lightweight, strong and responsive with an alloy steerer; kitted out with mudguard mounts which accommodate racks for lightweight loads
The triple cage bottle mount on top of the downtube allows for 2 different mounting positions. Opt for the modern ultra-light bikepacking luggage or load up with panniers on the rear rack mounts.
