The carbon Steven Camino gravel bike is the latest evolution of mixed-surface, fast off-road capability from the German bikemaker steeped in cyclocross. Taking the quick, but stable riding experience refined on their alloy gravel bikes to the next level, these new Caminos are a lot lighter and more comfortable, with modern gravel tire clearance & plenty of bikepacking adventure-ready mounts…

We really know Stevens best for their multiple CX World Cup & World Championship winning Super Prestige carbon cyclocross bikes. But over the last couple of years, Stevens has reshaped what had been their entry-level aluminum cross bikes – the cross race-named Prestige, Gavere & Tabor – into dedicated gravel bikes. Those revamped alloy gravel bikes got longer wheelbases & lower bottom brackets for improved stability, plus bigger tire clearances & more cage mounts for more off-road adventure versatility.

Now the new  Stevens Camino takes those gravel tweaks and upgrades them for modern gravel racing with a much lighter full-carbon frameset, improved compliance, and fully internal cable routing.

Gravel Race Geometry

Geometry for the new carbon gravel race bike is still quick with a 71.5° head tube & 73° seattube for the middle of six frame sizes (48-61cm), but paired to longer 440mm chainstays for all-day rideability, too. Stevens also lowers Stack heights relative to their alloy gravel bikes – back 1/2 way to CX territory – for a more aggressive & more aero position. The lower bar height to the ground comes thanks in part to the shorter axle-to-crown height of the carbon fork, but also the lower BB height than the bike’s CX ancestors.

Tech details

Stevens says the new carbon Camino & Camino Pro share the same SL hi-mod carbon fiber of their pro-level cyclocross bike, now adding a full-carbon tapered steerer fork too with anything cage mounts.

Like those latest carbon CX bikes, the Caminos also shift to a fully-integrated, full internal cable routing setup through the 1.5″ FSA ACR headset, but still with a separate bar for cockpit adjustability.

Tire clearance maxes out at 700c x 45mm, although the race-focused builds all stick with 40mm gravel tires.

The flat mount disc brake Camino is 1x or 2x compatible with a removable front derailleur hanger or chainguide (and can route mechanical or electronic shift controls internally), gets a PressFit BB86 bottom bracket, a 27.2mm round seatpost, and 12mm thru-axles. The frame & fork both include mounts for full-coverage fenders, plus a rear rack, toptube bag, and a cage under the downtube.

    • Sorry to burst your bubble, but a carbon build doesnt automatically make a bike a game-changer. Its all about the performance and ride experience. Lets wait and see if the Stevens Camino lives up to the hype before we start praising it as the ultimate gravel machine.

  1. Sure, the new Stevens Camino gravel bike is sleek and all, but does it fly? Because I need that feature for my off-road adventures!

    • I have to disagree with you there. While the Stevens Camino may have its merits, Ive heard mixed reviews about its performance on rough terrains. Guess well have to wait and see if it lives up to the hype. #TakingItWithaGrainOfSalt

    • Who needs a cup holder when you can embrace the ultimate cycling experience? Focus less on your coffee and more on the thrill of conquering those long gravel rides. The Stevens Camino is built for performance, not convenience. Time to prioritize, my friend.

    • I hate to burst your bubble, but the Stevens Camino isnt anything special. There are plenty of other gravel bikes out there that can handle rough terrains just as well, if not better. Dont get caught up in the hype.

    • I couldnt disagree more. The Stevens Camino is nothing but overhyped marketing. There are far better options out there for gravel riding. Dont believe the hype, my friend.

    • I hate to burst your bubble, but looks can be deceiving. The Stevens Camino may appear sleek, but its just another overpriced marketing gimmick. Dont waste your time or money on this pretentious bike. There are better options out there.

    • Gravel bikes offer versatility, comfort, and stability that unicycles simply cant match. While unicycles have their charm, they lack the practicality and efficiency needed for off-road adventures. Embrace progress and leave the clownish antics to the circus. #TeamGravelBike
