Do your friends ask if you intend to ride the chairlift when you invite them out for a ‘few’ park laps? Do your top routes frequently involve pushing up and down trails that aren’t on any map? Do your favorite rides begin or end with headlamps, an ice chest and great friends? Does your bike have to do everything well to get you there and back again? If you think you might be this rider, then Occam should be your bike.
ARE YOU THIS RIDER?
SUSPENSION140MM TRAVEL WITH 140/150MM FORK OPTIONS
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 either a 140mm Fox 34 or 150mm Fox 36 so you can ride the way you like.
TRAIL GEOMETRYSLACKER HEAD ANGLE - Great Stability
LOWER BOTTOM BRACKET - Corners Naturally
LONGER COCKPIT - Room to Move While Maintaining Balance
LONGER WHEELBASE - Stability at High Speeds
STEEP SEAT ANGLE - Proper Pedaling Position
SHORT SEAT TUBE - For Long Dropper Posts
Carbon OMROrbea Monocoque Race (OMR) frames blend high modulus fibers and high strength fibers exclusively.
Prepreg carbon sheets are laser cut to minimize excess materials and overlap, and hours of pre-moulding ensure optimal compaction with the smallest amount of carbon.
A full EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) mold helps eliminate wrinkles and voids.
Asymmetry - STRENGTHThe right side support strengthens and stiffens a high-stress area.
Instead of using a less-efficient “shock tunnel” the Occam design offsets the shock to the left side of the frame, allowing the asymmetrical support to follow a more direct path.
This straight line that closely follows the shock mounting is the most efficient way to neutralize suspension forces on the front triangle.
Asymmetry - ERGONOMICS & BALANCEThe asymmetric/offset design offers unique advantages beyond stiffness and low weight. The shock is mounted in a position that offers incredibly easy access to damper controls and the tidy design leaves room for bottle with easy left-side access.
