Orbea (Spain) – “Trail Gets Bigger. Natural progression leads us to more aggressive trails. Riders want an Occam AM with more travel, larger tires, extra stability and more opportunity for MyO Lite customization. The 2018 Occam AM checks all the boxes - Occam AM steps up to 150mm travel with a slacker 66.5º head angle and wider rims, making even the toughest terrain faster and more fun. The new Fox Float DPX2 gives more sophisticated damping that you'll need when the trail gets bigger”, revealed Orbea.
"The Occam AM, with 150mm travel and a manageable size using 27.5” wheels. Our consistent and proportional stack and reach measurements guarantee that every rider experiences flawless handling in a svelte, fun and fast bike regardless of frame size or wheel size", stated Orbea.
“Advanced Dynamics is not a design, but a development process. Our unique method transforms virtual models into real, highly-refined machines – Bikes for demanding riders that are faster, more fun to ride and far beyond ordinary”, added Orbea.
“We use the most technologically advanced carbon construction available to make the most sophisticated frame possible – A complex and painstaking process with results you will appreciate on the trail”, shared Orbea.
Orbea removed the pivot point at the rear axle. “The flexible seat stay design creates an ultralight bike that requires little maintenance and offers stiffness and acceleration like you’ve never felt in a full suspension bike. UFO saves over 140g and results in a faster Occam”, they added.
“Occam AM is precise and responsive with 425mm chainstays and the excellent rigidity of a 12mm through-axle system. The Boost 148 standard widens rear axle spacing to 148mm which moves the chainline outboard by 3mm and increases the space available at the bottom bracket”, concluded Orbea about the New Occam AM Bike.
