Orbea has gone through the Occam lineup and updated both the AM and TR versions. While the construction methods haven’t changed much, the geometry and spacing has. The bikes have gotten more aggressive and see Boost 148. Read on for the full details from the press release…

[Press Release]

Trail Geometry

TR/AM The TR/AM Trail Geometry concept divides the Occam family into Occam TR and Occam AM models. Shorter travel TR models take advantage of fast-rolling 29” wheels while the AM varieties pack more bump-eating suspension into a manageable size using 27.5” wheels. Our consistent and proportional stack and reach measurements guarantee that every rider experiences flawless handling in a svelte, fun and fast bike regardless of frame size or wheel size.

 

MONOCOQUE

We use the most technologically advanced carbon construction available to make the most sophisticated frame possible – A complex and painstaking process with results you will appreciate on the trail.

 

BOOST

Occam is precise and responsive with 425 AM / 435mm TR chainstays and the excellent rigidity of a 12mm through-axle system. The Boost 148 standard widens rear axle spacing to 148mm which moves the chainline outboard by 3mm and increases the space available at the bottom bracket.

Doble duty 27+ / 29

Doble duty packs two bikes into one platform. Choose between 27+ and 29” wheelsizes in the same frame. 27+ tires are wider than traditional tires and are much higher volume, meaning they can be run at lower pressures. This allows Plus tires to go where regular tires can´t, easily, handling light mud and snow or sand, greatly expanding the terrain you can cover.

New this year is the introduction of an XL size for the AM model and a size S for the TR model.

Although the specs are 1X only, there is a discrete front derailleur mount.

The AM comes with the new Fox DPX2.

The bikes are essentially spec’d with 1×11 Shimano or 1×12 Eagle.
