Orbea Alma

Ultra-refined Lightweight Cross Country Hardtail

The new Orbea Alma is the ideal choice for elite racers or riders who want the lightest bike with the highest levels of performance. The Alma is for purists who don’t want or need full suspension and other complexities…they simply crave speed.

The best XC racing bike is not just light, stiff, or comfortable. Orbea believe it’s a combination of all of those things. The Alma blends these elements to maximize power transfer and speed in all conditions, because the most efficient bike will make you faster. They say it’s the rider and not the bike. While this pearl of wisdom is true to an extent, it denies the fact that not all XC hardtails are created equally. Among competitive riders with similar fitness, just a tiny advantage can mean the difference between winning and losing. The new Alma exploits the smallest of gains to put you ahead of the competition, whether you’re sprinting for the win or out-climbing your friends for bragging rights.

Everything about the new Alma is geared to speed – refinements to the Alma’s World Cup Geometry reflect the recent evolution of elite racing. A slacker head angle (68º in a medium) provides stability on increasingly demanding tracks. A steeper seat angle (74.5º) and lower stack height increases handling precision and pedaling efficiency. Shorter chainstays then deliver maximum agility without instability.

FRAME MATERIALS

Available in a choice of two carbon lay-ups and lightweight hydroformed triple-butted premium alloy, there is an Alma to suit every level of rider and every budget:

HYDROFORMED ALUMINIUM:  Orbea manipulate the shapes and wall-thickness of their aluminum tubing to increase strength and resistance to unwanted flex. Many of the tubes are butted to save weight in the middle of the tubes, away from the stress of the joints and the weld zones. Using aluminum technologies as advanced as their carbon manufacturing ensures Orbea’s aluminum bikes are never second-best.

OMR:  Orbea Monocoque Race (OMR) fames add high modulus and high strength fibers to a standard layup to improve stiffness-to-weight ratios. Bladder molding with EPS forms and PU headtube and bottom bracket inserts stop wrinkling and unconformities in critical zones, allowing less carbon to be used while maintaining strength.

1100G (Medium)

OMX:  When the constant hunt for improvement in carbon manufacturing yields results that barely resemble those from a few short years ago, it’s time to change the way we talk about carbon. With the introduction of OMX Orbea are showing riders everywhere the direction of their lightest and stiffest performance racing frames. Orbea don’t claim that OMX is a secret-sauce, it’s more straightforward than that – OMX is the pinnacle of carbon fiber bicycle manufacturing.

FEATURES


SMOOTHNESS: Studying the way the frame behaves under a rider’s weight is critical to tuning the way vibrations are transmitted through the upper structure of the frame. The seat stays of the new Alma are thinner, the cross-sections and diameters reduced to provide graceful support for the seat tube and nothing more. The top tube is robust at the head tube where it contributes to torsional stiffness, but quickly tapers to eliminate unnecessary material. The natural flex patterns created by the carbon layup and minimal bulk of the top tube and seat stays deliver a dynamic, smooth ride that feels like floating over rough terrain.

STIFFNESS: The large majority of torsional and lateral loads are handled by the lower spine of the frame. The headtube, downtube and chainstays resist twisting and transmit power to the rear wheel. There is no doubt about it, resistance to flex in the bottom of the frame translates directly to more watts to the wheel and a sensation that power transfer is instantaneous.

ICR:  Internal Cable Routing is carefully guided along the best path with no rub or rattle, and is optimized for both traditional and electronic shifting systems.

CHAIN SECURITY: With modern 1X drivetrains, dropping a chain is largely a thing of the past. Alma’s Chain Security system offers you the added peace of mind knowing your chain is never going to end up around your bottom bracket shell, or you can remove the guide with no weight penalty of alloy insert frame mounts.

BLOCKLOCK HEADSET:  The Acros Blocklock 164º steering limiter system prevents frame damage due to handlebar or fork impacts. Orbea worked closely with Acros to reduce stack height and improve cockpit integration with Alma carbon models..

OC COCKPIT:  The Orbea XC family sports an all-new integrated look with a completely unique OC headset/spacer/stem design. OC component collaboration is a detail that completes the high-end feel of Orbea’s modern XC bikes.

Additional Alma Features

  • TYRE CLEARANCE:  Even the most weight-conscious XC riders appreciate the increased traction, comfort, durability and speed offered by wider tyres.
  • UDH HANGER:  A Universal Derailleur Hanger will eventually make finding a replacement a snap, as more and more bikes adopt this simple technology.
  • PF92 Bottom Bracket:  The wide press-fit shell ensures optimal stiffness and larger bearings with better seals offer increased durability, reduced maintenance and friction.
  • RACE DROPPER:  A 27.2mm OC 2 Dropper Post brings added control and comfort to the racing hardtail.

ORBEA MYO

Orbea’s MyO programme enables riders to personalize their bikes to an extent that is quite simply unique in the bike industry. The Orbea Alma OMX range is available with a fully custom coloured frameset at no extra cost – painted and assembled entirely at Orbea’s headquarters in Mallabia, in the heart of the Basque Country.

Orbea can offer this level of flexibility because they are not simply a warehouse for assembled bikes – they are builders, painters, technicians and mechanics.  Orbea’s in-house manufacturing capabilities allow them to pay meticulous attention to every step of the MyO process so all you have to do is choose the colours and, if you would like to, add your name to the top tube.  The MyO custom painting system is pretty straightforward and fun to use, and we are here to help guide you through the entire MyO process.
