10 Mountain Bikes We Want to See Under the Tree this Christmas

Orbea Occam TR


Bring the joy of climbing back into the life of the cyclist in your life with this svelte and maneuverable trail bike. Steady enough for all day rides and endurance races, the Occam also scampers upward like a frightened monkey. The super-light but flex-free carbon frame mated to fast-rolling 29” hoops and a precise-handling geometry make for a fine companion for the active rider who wants to hit trails with epic demands, but without fading over the long haul. At an MSRP of $7,999, the Occam TR Ltd won’t fit under everyone’s tree, but there is an entire range of Occam TR Models starting with the very reasonable $2,199 Occam TR HID 50, which still provides the same geometry and handling characteristics in a more modestly-appointed aluminum package.

MSRP: $2,200-$8,000
