The Orbea MX 26 XC is a fully functioning hardtail mountain bike, that has been designed to fit the aspiring young rider. It is made from lightweight and durable Hexatubing with internal cable routing for additional cable protection and a sleek finish.
Orbea have not just shrunk an adult size bike to get to the MX 26 XC, which would compromise on ride quality. Instead they have developed their own Minipro geometry to ensure that the bike still handles awesomely. They have added additional easy handling characteristics and a low top tube offering plenty of standover height making getting on and off super easy.
This impressive bike even benefits from a Suntour fork with 100mm of travel and a 26" wheel, the size most adults were riding on not too long ago. This gives young riders full size performance, in a smaller package.
The Shimano 8-speed drivetrain provides plenty of gearing options for tackling ascents with the same smooth shifting capabilities we have all grown to love from Shimano, the leading company in their field.

Founded over 140 years ago, in Spain’s mountainous Basque region, Orbea is one of the world’s oldest cycling companies and a custodian of the traditions, roots and heritage of the sport.
Expertise gained over this long history - which by the company's own admission encompasses both successes and failures - has moulded Orbea into what it is today; a market leader renowned for its meticulous attention to detail and technical mastery reminiscent of Spanish form from the days of the Arab conquerors of the Iberian Peninsula.
Every tiny detail on the bike is the result of hours of research and development; each design line carefully considered, each component hand selected to provide the best possible riding experience, without compromise.
So when you mount an Orbea bike you can be sure of its quality, you know its pedigree, you know where it comes from. Now it’s up to you where to take it next.
