The gear change cables need the most maintenance of anything on a conventional mountain bike. If you take a little longer ride and it's raining or there's mud (or even if you just wash your bike with pressurized water), you'll probably have to replace the cables and gear covers after only a few rides, since they get dirty and no longer operate smoothly.
Its four-vertex rear triangle ensures us greater rigidity and transmits all the power, reducing lateral torsion as much as possible (we've calculated it using finite element software, tested it in our laboratory and, in particular, felt it over the terrain).
The development of tubes with edges on Rallon, Occam and MX models provides better performance in terms of overall frame durability, rigidity and strength. The feeling on the bike is more "compact"� and solid.

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.
