Orbea Alma M50 Hardtail Mountain Bike 2021
Alma is the choice of elite racers or riders who want the lightest bike with the best performance. Alma is for purists who don’t want or need full suspension and other complexities.
Performance gains can be found everywhere and obsession is part of the game. How far is too far? For as long as we have had goals, competition and a creative spirit, we have pushed ourselves to win. Once victory is tasted, it becomes an obsession to be the best. You feel it in your heart, lungs and legs – you can sense it in our bikes. Only by sweating the smallest details and pushing past what seems possible can we achieve our ultimate goals.
World Cup Geometry - Alma’s World Cup Geometry is born from years of designing world-class XC bikes. The position is aggressive, comfortable and fast. Unlike trail geometry that sacrifices some precison for endurance, XC geometry is precise and intuitive for maximum power transfer. Angles and dimensions are considered carefully across a range of sizes, maximizing power by increasing efficiency.
• HEAD ANGLE – 68º • SEAT ANGLE – 74.5º • REACH – 426mm MEDIUM
Orbea Monocoque Carbon - Alma uses the most technologically advanced carbon construction available to make the most sophisticated frame possible - A complex and painstaking process with results you will appreciate on the trail.
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.
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. The sensation is subtle – but it is noticeable and can be tested. And at the end of a grueling ride it could make the difference between the podium and the consolation prize.
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.
Flat Mount - The lowest profile brake mount provides the cleanest, stiffest and lightest caliper integration available.
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. We’ve worked closely with Acros to reduce stack height and improve cockpit integration with our Alma monocoque models.
