2013 Orbea Occam Revealed

29er Cross Country Video

Last month, Catharine Pendrel rode a prototype Orbea full-suspension bike to victory in the World Cup, Mont-Sainte-Anne. Today, the bike was revealed at Orbea’s headquarters in Spain and the mtbr crew has been busy relaying us all the details.

What we have is the 2013 Occam and it comes in 29er and 26er format. Orbea has been busy reinventing the company over the last decade and they have overhauled their R&D and testing capabilities to produce better mountain bikes. This Occam is the result of many efforts over the last three years and they are determined to make their mark on the high-end mountain bike landscape.

We are getting more details at the moment but what we know is the 29er is a 100 mm travel bike front and rear. Head angle is 69 degrees and seat angle is 73. BB height is a low 12.87 inches.
