What makes Alma unique
ORBEA INNOVATION - ALWAYS STRIVING FOR PERFECTION
We live and breathe the bikes we make and are proud of every one of them. Innovation is the difference between participating and leading and at Orbea only excellence is good enough. Each bike that leaves our factory is the result of our passion, design skill and manufacturing expertise.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Fully backed up with a crash replacement program and warranty, and with weights as low as 1350g for the full wheelset, these OQUO wheels are the perfect partner for your Alma.
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.
The OQUO MP tubeless wheelsets maximize performance with their front and rear specific design. Front wheels use higher rim walls to increase rigidity and precision while the rear wheels use a wider bead to maximize puncture resistance.
