The Orbea Occam is an excellent all-mountain machine, and there is a version for every rider. The frame is available in both aluminum (“H” models) and carbon fiber (“M” models), and the travel ranges from 140mm to 150mm. The 150mm varieties can quickly be identified by the “LT” in the name, which stands for long travel. Base Camp Cyclery is the best Orbea Occam bike shop in Colorado, and we carry a choice for every rider. Below, we take a quick dive into the difference between a few of the options.
Whether you’re on the descent or climbing back up, the Orbea Occam H30 rules the mountain. With 140mm front and rear travel, a Shimano Deore M6100 12-speed drivetrain, alloy tubeless-ready wheels, and Shimano MT201 hydraulic disc brakes, this bike is ready for any trail you want to ride. When you’re in the saddle, you’ll enjoy smooth and efficient uphill climbs and playful descents.
Occam H20 LT
This enduro/all-mountain bike sits on 29” wheels with middle-of-the-road geometry for a ride that will leave you grinning. The sleek frame is eye catching, but the appeal goes beyond looks. Orbea puts just as much care into designing their aluminum frames as they do carbon fiber. The aluminum frame is hydroformed to achieve optimum shape and thickness, which maximizes structural integrity without needlessly weighing it down.
Occam M10 LT
The Occam M10 LT is a long-legged XL bike. With 150mm front and rear travel combined with a 12-speed drivetrain, it’s just as smooth going down as it is climbing back up. The Shimano shifting lets you seamlessly change gears when the trail makes sudden changes, and the magnetic 4-key multi-tool keeps you prepared for impromptu maintenance. Although this bike has a nimble maneuverability well-suited for playful lines, it can come up short for fast and gnarly downhill sections. If bombing the trail is your bag, Orbea’s Rallon might be more your style (unfortunately, the Rallon is not part of the 50% off sale).
Occam M30 LT
Slack head angle for better descents, long wheelbase for stability at speed, and a steeper seat angle to maintain optimum pedaling position. What more could you ask for? This beast is more capable than your garden-variety trail bike, and it’s ideal for all-day rides. The FOX FLOAT X rear shock and FOX 36 150mm fork give your ride balanced front and rear suspension. With tight handling, you’ll be able to easily navigate those technical trail sections.
