[Press release] – In 2020 we launched the Occam with fantastic success, winning many awards. The feedback from the media and users is that people love the versatility of the Occam, that is to say the balance between it ́s pedalling efficiency and light weight combined with its modern geometry and suspension performance. People also love its aesthetics with the asymmetric design and the MyO program we offer.
What we are seeing is a wide range of different OCCAM users. On one hand we see all round users and adventure riders who want the Occam for epic rides and value the climbing efficiency and light weight combined with the confidence the geometry and suspension offers for the descents. On the other hand we see other users who value the descending ability of the Occam above all and are using the bike in a much more aggressive way and value the nimble, fun descending characteristics of the bike. For these reasons we are going to offer two versions of the Occam, the standard Occam and the Occam LT.
First of all, we are going to offer a new two-part linkage design for both the Occam and the Occam LT. Fewer pieces mean fewer interfaces and lower chance of something working loose. Additionally we have created a space in the axel and filled it with a handy 4 key multi-tool which is held securely in place with magnets. Always have the most-used tools close at hand for quick tweaks.
The Occam stays with the geometry and suspension which riders and testers love, with 140mm travel front and rear supplied by a Float DPS shock and 34 Fork.
Occam LT is the wilder side of Occam thanks to more aggressive geometry, Fox 36 forks, and 10mm more travel. Occam LT is hugely capable but also more versatile than a full on enduro bike with efficient pedalling for all day rides. Of course Occam LT comes dressed for the party with coil shock options, 4 piston brakes, bigger rotors and more aggressive tyres.
Suspension: Modern trail bikes are used for an impressive variety of rides. Some riders use them to climb thousands of meters on huge rides, others weave in and out of bike parks and jumps during their daily adventures. Occam is available with a 150mm Fox 36 and a Float X or DHX coil shock so you can ride the way you like.
Geometry: The sturdy Fox 36 fork slackens the Occam LT’s head angle by 0.5o, giving it an even more self assured stance.
MyO: Design Your Ride
We are familiar with the draw of self-expression and a desire to create. For years our MyO program has allowed riders to personalize their Orbeas to an extent that is unique in the industry. With any Occam C model from the M10 upwards you can customize the paint for free. Say “NO” to the standard Bike In A Box offered by our competitors.
For the Occam M30 and all the Occam H models, we offer our MyO component options. Switching a wheelset, gearing or other components is possible through the
ordering process, so your Occam arrives at the dealer in the exact configuration you desire.
All Occam models offer the option to change to the longer travel fork and shock, meaning you can choose an Occam LT in any model you want.
Specs and Pricing
Occam H has been incredibly popular and we have had great feedback about its performance and its looks with the stunning high polish finish. Occam H will be available as either the standard or LT version and comes with new graphics and colours.
