For 2012, Orbea has redesigned its mountain bike, Occam, by getting rid of its common elevated chainstays. Orbea promotes its frame with 123mm of travel as with all-mountain and trail. Available both in carbon and in an aluminum versions, the Occam comes in nine different makes.

Both the carbon and aluminum versions will come available with the customary options, My Orbea. Other common features include a low bottom bracket height at 327mm, 420mm chainstays, which is relatively short, and a 612mm top tube, which is relatively long for a medium size.

One unique feature of the 2012 Orbea Occam Carbon and Aluminum Mountain Bikes is its concentric rear axle end that reduces its weight. In the main pivot, dual 28mm sealed bearings are used in both versions. Also, sealed bearings are used all through the other parts of the pivots and shock mounts.

Orbea makes its mark in all-mountain and enduro with the 2011 Rallon 30. Made from hydroformed Tricone aluminum, the Rallon 30 aims to be the benchmark in its field on design, sealed bearings and performance.

The Rallon 30 is a result of the application of Advance Dynamics technology. This is a computer-based program that simulates the performance of dual suspension bikes. From here, Orbea and CEIT (Guipuzcoa Studies and Technical Research Centre) can take the data and use it to create a bike that is optimized in its suspension platform, travel, damper and sealed bearings.

With a tapered headtube, tapered Fox Talas fork, and an enduro-specific geometry, the Rallon 30 gets fine tuned. Long seat tubes, replaceable dropouts, short 17.2″ chainstays and a Fox RP23 boost valve shock with XV air canister are added to ensure that it is capable to handle descents, climbs and everything else in between.

Orbea takes a step into the cyclocross arena with its 2011 Terra Silver and Terra A. For the Terra Silver, Orbea uses ATT Ergonomy System technology and matches this with a monocoque carbon construction to deliver a light, reliable and rigid frame. The asymmetrical horizontal frame and four-point rear triangle provides for better shouldering while the DCR direct cabling system gives less friction, more smoothness and greater precision and comfort while riding obstacle courses through mud.

The Terra Silver has the following specs: frame and fork are Orbea Terra Carbon, FSA GOSSAMER 46×36 BB30 crankset, Semi-integrated 1 1/8″ headset, Orbea Aluminum Pro for the handlebar and stem and Shimano 105 drivetrain.

The Terra A or Terra Alu TTG features almost the same innovations as the Terra Silver. To add, it uses a thick Orbea aluminum material yet optimized to be light as you battle through the mud. Cross carbon AC fork,…

Orbea upgraded its Alma model with the 2011 Alma 29er. Made with “silver” mid-modulus carbon fiber, the Alma 29er is more resistant to whatever hard trail riding you can throw at it. Orbea’s USA National sales manager Ronnie Points shares, “We used Kenda 2.2 Nevegal tires as the benchmark and still achieved 4 to 5mm clearance on either stay. Seat stays have about 7 to 8mm clearance, so this bike will handle serious conditions.”

The Alma 29er has a tapered headtube, 29er specific 439 chain stays and BB30. It now has 100mm travel and features DCR cable routing with the aim for longer life of the cables. The geometry for the Alma was modified by Orbea, using the Size Specific Nerve technology or SSN to match the rider’s height and weight to the frame’s layups and carbon structures. It comes in 3 sizes (16.5, 18.5 and 20.5).
