The 2022 Occam is now lighter and simpler, thanks to savings from complex yokes and additional pivot axles and hardware. Now stiffer through an updated design of moving the pivot to the rear axle, increasing precission and handling and better braking performance with significantly reduced feedback under rough terrain.
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.
ORBEA OCCAM 2022 FRAME HIGHLIGHTS
For 2022, Orbea have given the Occam a new two-part linkage design. Fewer pieces mean fewer interfaces. Resulting in greater rigidity and stifness with drasticaly lower chances of something working loose through miles of off road mountain trail abuse.
With an Asymmetrical rear shock design, the Occam offsets the rear shock to the left side of the frame, providing ample amounts of super plush suspension travel over the less efficent "shock tunnel" design.
