29ers have dominated elite cross country racing for many years now and for good reason, they are just plain faster. Not only do they roll more efficiently, the improved stability and traction offered by the bigger wheels allows riders to expend less of their energy keeping the bike pointed in the right direction so that energy can be used to propel the bike forward. Orbea was one of the first brands to offer a competitive 29er frame with their highly decorated Alma 29.
For their H70 version of the bike Orbea builds on the World Championship and Olympic Gold Medal winning geometry of its carbon fiber Alma to build a budget friendly aluminum version. That World Cup proven geometry results in a bike that is quick, responsive and carves singletrack with the precision of a sushi knife. There is no need to be a racer to appreciate the ride of the Alma. Engineered in the Basque country of Spain the Alma is made to not only handle the smooth trails of a World Cup XC course but is also made to handle the rugged terrain of Orbea's homeland.
Shimano hydraulic disc brakes and a Suntour XCR fork with remote lockout ensure that the Alma H70 goes down the trail just as well as it goes up it. The Shimano drivetrain provides all the gears you need no matter which way the trail points. Whether you want to give racing a try or are just looking for a high quality hardtail trail bike, the Orbea Alma H70 is a great place to start.
Frame: Aluminum alloy with internal 1 1/8" headset
