Occam and Occam LT: Are you this rider?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 Orbea Occam M30 Mountain Bike should be your bike.Or maybe you prefer local trails and jumps? Visits to the bike park? Big mountain days with the focus on enjoying the descents? Lighter enduro races? If you are that rider then Occam LT is that bike.OccamThe 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.BackgroundIn 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.Orbea Occam M30 Mountain Bike FeaturesNew LinkageFirst 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.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.Geometry: The sturdy Fox 36 fork slackens the Occam LT’s head angle by 0.5º, giving it an even more self assured stance.
