What makes Alma unique
The Orbea XC Family sports an all-new integrated look with a completely unique OC headset/spacer/stem design. The system includes an optional computer mount that is compatible with all major brands using standard adapters. OC component collaboration is a detail that completes the high-end feel of our modern XC bikes.
Spirit may seem esoteric – we’re sure that the number crunchers will tell us it’s a risk. But for us, Spirit and Alma go hand in hand. Spirit is an essential part of what makes Alma the best XC hardtail system available.

ORBEA 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.
ORBEA MONOCOQUE CARBON
We use the most technologically advanced carbon construction available to make the most sophisticated frame possible – A complex and painstaking process with results you will appreciate in the saddle.
The pinnacle of carbon manufacturing
When the constant hunt for improvement in our 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 we are showing riders everywhere the direction of our lightest and stiffest performance racing frames. We don’t claim that OMX is a secret-sauce, it’s more straightforward than that – OMX is the pinnacle of carbon fiber bicycle manufacturing.
OMR frames 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.
HYDROFORMED ALUMINUM FRAME
We manipulate the shapes and wall-thickness of our 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 our carbon manufacturing ensures our aluminum bikes are never second-best.
OC XC TEAM
Some carbon rims take design inspiration from whales and the aerodynamic skin of golf balls. Others claim to have an exotic military ballistic layer or engineering from the world of Supercross.
Check out the new OC wheels on our line of 2022 XC bikes. Our sales department would love if we had developed a secret wheel technology from satellites, but they're just light and fast.
Even the most weight-conscious XC riders appreciate the increased traction, comfort, durability and speed offered by wider tires.
A Universal Derailleur Hanger will eventually make finding a replacement a snap, as more and more bikes adopt this simple technology.
The wide press-fit shell ensures optimal stiffness and larger bearings with better seals offer increased durability, reduced maintenance and friction.
A 27.2mm OC 2 Dropper Post brings added control and comfort to the racing hardtail.
ALMA MODEL COMPARISON
OMX carbon joins OMR and hydroformed aluminum to offer many models across a large price spread. At the top-end we find the OMX frame that offers the highest stiffness with lowest frame weight. In the middle of the range we have the OMR frame and finally the hydroformed Alma. Here is a breakdown of frames and options:
DESIGN YOUR RIDE
All Alma models offer Orbea´s MyO component options. Switching a wheelset, gearing or other components is possible through the ordering process, so your Alma arrives at the dealer in the exact configuration you desire.
With Alma we offer the full MyO program has allowed riders to personalize their Orbeas to an extent that is unique in the industry. Customize the paint of your Alma for free. Say “no” to the standard Bike In A Box offered by our competitors.
