What is Advanced Dynamics? What is this blog about? What am I expected to find here? If you’re acquainted with Orbea’s full suspension bikes, you must be familiar with the term ‘Advanced Dynamics.’ Our Rallon and Occam models were developed out of the Advanced Dynamics Program. Their innovative rear suspension systems were fully optimized to deliver the best performance in this sector. So now what? No, we’re not nuts. This is Orbea’s first blogging experience on the study and analysis of full suspension bikes. Here we want to show you what we do and how we do it. We want to share what we’ve learned with you, and we want you to be part of this. If you like full suspension bikes and how they work, this is the right place for you. Welcome!

Disusbat is the original mountain bike rear suspension mechanical design project carried out by Orbea and the Center of Studies and Technical Research (CEIT) from 2006 to 2008.
Goals: To improve software-based design methods, considering rider comfort, safety and pedaling efficiency for better designed rear suspension bikes by Orbea. Continue reading this new
Advanced Dynamics is a software-based design method. It is a software program used to calculate the actual performance of a full suspension bike, considering not only the technical parameters and component behaviors affecting performance but also the factors introduced by the cyclist, such as their weight or the effect of pedal strokes on optimal performance.

What are the needs of full suspension mountain bike users? In early February 2012, we visited the Biomechanics Institute of Valencia (IBV), where we met several mountain bike users to talk about their real needs and demands for bikes.
At Orbea we take nothing for granted. When we embark on a new project, we take users’ opinions into account, no matter how experienced they are as bikers.
Analyzing their demands, we’ll have a clear idea of what the technical features of our bikes should be and how we should go about designing them. It’s bound to be a great experience! Continue reading this new
