What makes Rallon unique
Longer and slacker than ever.
Rallon also has more standover to work with longer dropper posts. With two suspension positions and two choices of rear wheel size Rallon is also more adaptable than ever before.
Steep and deep means more control and more choice on frame sizing.
64 or 64.5º is slack enough for the toughest courses without compromising agility.
An extra 3mm drop gives great stability and you will be amazed at how it corners.
Increased reach really helps to increase stability when descending at speed.
5mm longer for increased stability at speed without compromising maneuverability.
STEEP SEAT ANGLE
Great pedaling position and works well with long travel droppers.
Low/Slack or Lower/Slacker
29" or 27,5" Rear Wheel.
STEEP AND DEEP
With its steep seat tube and deep insertion Rallon has one of the lowest standovers around, meaning lots of space for your choice of long travel dropper posts. Get that saddle right out of the way when things get steep and deep, long travel droppers are the only way.
MORE SIZING OPTIONS
Rallon is available in four sizes, S, M, L and XL, however with one of the shortest seat posts around you can pick between sizes to get your preferred reach. Rallon is designed to work with a long travel dropper post, so choose a larger size to maximise stability, or go with a smaller size for a more playful Rallon.
DESIGN / INTEGRATION
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 best materials are applied to innovative designs in the hands of dedicated engineers, making the result truly exceptional.
Some of this happens at a computer or in a testing lab, a lot of it on the road or mountain and during the design process prototypes are passed around, fought over and above all ridden. It’s all crucial for improvement and fundamental to the pride we take in our industry-leading bicycles.
LOCKR Frame Storage
Leave your pack at home and just focus on fast! Rallon is packed with clever storage spaces for all the essential tools and water you need for shorter rides or enduro races. Packless runs are fast and fun.
THREE LOCKR ZONES
In the Down tube LOCKR zone we have two sealed bags, with tube, tyre levers and space for two C02 cartridges. Additionally the main pivot and rear axel are filled with cleverly designed tools, held securely with magnets. With a tube, tyre repair, tube, hex keys from 3 to 6mm and a 6mm hex key, all held securely in space, Rallon is fully equipped.
Frame rigidity affects feel and grip and it is possible to have a frame which is too stiff to track the terrain efficiently. Manipulating the carbon weave allows us to control flexibility without sacrificing strength, giving a perfectly balanced front and rear triangle stiffness. A lot of technology, modeling and testing which translates to confidence and grip on rough cambered terrain and valuable fractions in race runs.
GRAVITY ORIENTATED KINEMATICS
Rallon loves it when it turns nasty. With 160mm of gravity tuned suspension it specialises in finding grip on the trickiest of tracks, nailing rock gardens without loosing speed and swallowing the biggest hits effortlessly. It does all this but still climbs efficiently between stages and sprints out of slow corners like a rocket.
Our large suspension “library” is updated with new designs and data obtained from our suspension partners. This is detailed stuff, not just marketing descriptions of a new damper or spring curve.
Our Advanced Dynamics software is used to optimize geometry, linkage and pivot locations to obtain the suspension characteristics we are looking for, depending on how the bike will be used.
When we start test-riding prototypes, we are working out tiny details instead of crossing our fingers and hoping the bike will largely perform as we hoped. Starting at 90% means we get closer to perfection.
CONCENTRIC BOOST 2
We have updated our successful concentric pivot assembly at the rear axle. The new CB2 has fewer parts and reduces weight.
LIGHTER AND SIMPLER
Saves the weight of complex yokes and additional pivot axles and hardware. Pivot axle is also the hub axle, maintenance is incredibly easy.
Moving the pivot to the rear axle increases system stiffness and precision.
Enduro Max Black Oxide bearings give unmatched durability and small bump sensitivity.
Rear pivot location decouples braking forces from the swingarm assembly, reducing braking feedback.
REARWARD AXEL PATH
A more forward pivot point increases the backwards component of the axel path, particularly in the first part of the travel. The Rallon floats through square hits with ease, maintaining speed and minimising fatigue.
BRAKING AND PEDALING
FOX FACTORY OPTIONS
We avoided designing Rallon to work with only one type of shock. There are simply too many ideas about what makes for a perfect damper feel, so we offer Fox Factory Shox in air and coil options.
FOX 38 FORKS
Rallon comes equipped with the beefy Fox 38 on all models. The 38 is the perfect fork for Rallon; stiff and controlled in the roughest of terrains.
DESIGN YOUR RIDE
We are familiar with the draw of self-expression and a desire to create. For years the MyO program has allowed riders to personalize their Orbeas to an extent that is unique in the industry.
