Orbea Occam S10 29er – First ride review

27 Jul

BikeRadar have released their thoughts on the Orbea Occam S10 29er. More famous for their road bikes, Orbea have priced this at the high end of the scale at £6699.99 but with a suitably impressive spec.

“A long uphill drag got the test started, and with Fox’s CTD (Climb/Trail/Descend) suspension system switched to Climb the bike surged forward under power. The Shimano XTR group worked effortlessly smoothly too, with no noise but the Geax AKA tyres biting against the asphalt.

A long top tube length gives a cross-country racer position on the bike, encouraging an efficient stance and allowing us to make best of our lungs as we got closer to the summit.”
