The 2024 Orbea Occam SL H30 Full Suspension Mountain Bike is light and efficient. It climbs like an XC bike but has trail geometry and ruggedness to handle big mountain adventures. The H30 is the entry level bike in the range and comes with solid and reliable kit.
The Occam SL H30 is built around an aluminium frame and comes with 140mm of travel front and rear and 29er wheels. The efficient suspension and balanced geometry let you attack every climb and enjoy the descents. The remote lock-out system is quick and easy to use, with I-Line giving the most integrated look and lightest action. Once you have tried it, you won't ever want to go back! Adventures can take you anywhere, and Occam SL is ready. Seriously light and tough, this is a bike built for speed. When you absolutely have to get there fast and want to add flow to the trail, Occam SL is ready
The Occam SL H30 comes with Fox Float rear shock and a Marzocchi Bomber fork. 1x12 speed Shimano Deore gearing is super reliable, cheap to maintain, and has plenty of range to get you up and down hills.
Mountain bikers who want that perfect mix of climbing ability and descending prowess. Light, controlled and confidence-inspiring, Occam SL brings flow to every trail.
Mountain biking is an incredibly diverse sport. Mountain bikes now come in three main flavours. They are XC, Trail and Enduro.
XC – short for cross country, are quick race bikes. They will normally have 29” wheels and come with 100mm of suspension. If you are mainly going to be riding bridleways and natural trails in the South East of England, where our shops are, an XC bike will be the quickest and most efficient option.
Trail – these bikes are designed to be pedalled up and down hill and for use on bridleways and natural trails, but also at dedicated trail centres. They normally come with 130mm or 140mm of suspension travel and can have either 27.5” or 29” wheels, but 29” is quickly becoming the norm. Trail bikes are good all-rounders. They won’t be as fast as an XC bike on the flat but they can handle a lot more challenging terrain, and a few jumps. If you plan on taking your bike to trail centres in Wales, or to the Alps, then a trail bike may be your best option.
Enduro – enduro racing is a thing in and of itself but many people buy enduro bikes for ‘aggressive’ trail riding and uplift days at places like Bike Park Wales. This generally means challenging downhill trails with some big jumps. With around 160mm of suspension travel enduro bikes can take some big hits. They are designed to be efficient enough to pedal up hills but really come into their own when pointed downhill. You get enduro bikes in either 27.5” or 29” wheel sizes as well as mullet setups of 29 at the front and 27.5 at the back.
Nearly all the mountain bikes we sell are now unisex. All of the big brands have gradually stopped doing dedicated men’s and women’s bikes over the last few years. Instead they are focussed on producing bikes in a bigger range of sizes. So, for instance, the Trek Marlin 5 is a unisex bike that now comes in sizes from XXS to XXL large. This means it will fit riders from 4’ 5” to 6’ 5” and everything in between.
Orbea pronounced Or-bay-ah is named after the brothers who founded the company in 1840. Initially, the company manufactured rifles and guns. The company has been making bikes since the early 1930s and winning Tour de France stages for just as long. All Orbea Bikes are assembled at the Orbea Factory based in the heart of the Basque country in Northern Spain or in their facility in Portugal.
Orbea does things a little differently from many of the big American bike brands. As the heart of Orbea's manufacturing is still in Spain and Portugal Orbea can offer much more customised service. This includes the ability to swap out colours and parts on most of their higher-end bikes to suit individual customers through their MyO program.
Although best known for their road bikes Orbea are increasingly making a name for themselves as a mountain bike brand.
