Orbea Alma 27 H50 Bike 2016
Power Has Never Been So Subtle.
Building on nearly a century of evolution as a company, Orbea continually pushes the limits of elite cycling performance. Orbea is proudly located in Basque country and puts their exceptional cycling machines to the test on the twists and climbs of the Pyrenees mountains - a crucial stage of the Tour De France and Vuelta a Espana. Before release, each Orbea bike endures enough blood, grit, and suffering to sympathize with the greatest racers of all. From the Pro Tour to the World Cup, Orbea's strong commitment to uncompromising quality and European precision places Orbea as an unwavering leader of the pack.
The Orbea Alma is the benchmark in cross-country hardtails. As light as a feather and as stiff as a board, the Orbea Alma H50 also manages to remain comfortable for long and treacherous rides due mainly to their 4x4 Technology. By incorporating a fourth member into the front and rear triangles, 4x4 Technology is essentially creating a quadrangle - deflecting impacts at the joints, providing a comfortable yet still torsionally stiff frame.
The Orbea Alma H50 benefits from a handful of frame updates when compared to previous models. Slight tweaks in the frame's geometry have completely revamped the handling characteristics of the new Alma - providing a lower center of gravity which increases stability, a lower front end for better traction for those steep and loose climbs, and shorter chainstays allowing you to maneuver through technical descents with confidence and ease.
The Orbea Alma H50 is stocked with an impressive build kit that'll suit just about anyone's needs. RockShox is well known within the industry for producing high-end suspension components that are easy to setup and use, making it the obvious choice for the Orbea Alma H50. The RockShox Recon Silver TK fork features 100mm of buttery smooth suspension travel while the tapered head tube ensures the front end is stiff, helping maintain excellent steering, especially when riding winding single track or technical switchbacks. A Shimano drivetrain including XT cranks and SLX rear derailleur, Deore shifters, front derailleur, and M425 brakes provide smooth, reliable, and fast shifting with some of the best braking performance in the industry. To top it off, the Orbea OC-II cockpit is a perfect balance of quality, strength, and performance - a fitting match for such a worthy machine.
