Take back your wild

2016-04-26

There are no meetings here. No email alerts from your mobile. You won’t stand still in tollway queues. In this space between real life and what is Real, you will find Wild.

You know you can’t stay forever even though you might lose track of time charging quickly over rough singletrack through dark woods. The terrain may become unfamiliar but you can never truly get lost, not here. Challenging trails, fast berms and mountain top views are equal parts of the appeal – drifting flat turns through pine needles, flowing through rock gardens like water, no inefficiency or wasted actions. Wild is where you know you belong and it’s at once familiar and exhilarating. There is nothing to distract from the next turn, valley or summit, the land is your playground – Take back your Wild.

Wild is perfect for the rider who wishes to experience the mountain in a new way. The Wild owner wants to take advantage of pedal-assist to enhance the riding experience to cover more terrain or enjoy riding with a partner who is much stronger. Wild is for riders who want to spend more time outdoors and are looking for an escape from daily life.

HYDRO FRAMES ARE LIGHT AND STIFF
Updated alloy tubing and shapes borrow technologies from our premier carbon models to make the best hydroformed aluminum frames available. We manipulate the shapes and wall-thick-ness 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.
O2 BOX MEANS WILD IS BALANCED AND MORE FUN
By turning the motor upward 45º in the frame there is plenty of clearance for roots, rocks and ledges. Chainstays can be made shorter than with any other technology, giving a more natural handling feel and better agility. A unique aluminum cover and flange protect the engine box and the entire forged structure creates massive surface area for welding hydroformed frame tubes.
METAL ARMOR IS RUGGED
Enclosing the engine in a metal box keeps Wild on the trail. Obstacles that might damage the motor or break the plastic guards found on some bikes will be shrugged off by the metal armor plate of Wild. Rocks, roots and ledges are not going to end your ride.
27 PLUS GIVES BETTER TRACTION AND A SMOOTHER RIDE
“Plus” tires are wider than traditional tires and are much higher volume, meaning they can be run at lower pressures. This allows Plus tires to go where regular tires can’t, easily handling light mud and snow or sand, greatly expanding the terrain you can cover. Massively increased traction takes climbing grip to new levels and is also immediately apparent in fast corners when the fun starts
BOOST MAKES WILD STIFFER AND MORE MANEUVERABLE
Increasing rear axle spacing to 148mm over the 142mm standard moves the chainline outboard by 3mm, increasing the space avail-able at the bottom bracket. This doesn’t sound like much but it means that Wild’s chainstays can be shorter while increasing tire clearance. All of it adds up to more versatility and nimble handling.
ORBEA eMTB GEOMETRY
Wild is designed for great handling, control and comfort. Angles and dimensions are considered carefully across a range of sizes, maximizing fun by increasing efficiency.Keeping engine and battery weight low and centered is paramount for fun handling. Wild is perfectly balanced and nimble with the additional weight of the drivetrain. No drawbacks, just maximum fun.
THE SMALL DETAILS THAT ENSURE YOUR WILD ISN’T JUST GOOD, IT’S GREAT.
ICR Internal Cable Routing is carefully routed along the best path with no rub or rattle and is optimized for both traditional and electronic shifting systems.
152MM CRANK ARMS
Shorter 152mm crankarms offer more ground clearance and encourage a higher cadence that is optimized for the motor. A more balanced descending position when standing and coasting provides more control.
DIGIT & DROPPER COMPATIBLE
Wild is compatible with our patented Orbea Digit seatpost and is ready for internal (stealth) or external dropper seatpost control cable routing.
INTERNAL HEADSET
Zero-stack alloy cups press flush into the headtube for the sleekest design possible that allows for easy maintenance and parts replacement.
LIFETIME WARRANTY
We have total confidence in our products and our tireless efforts to ensure that Orbea bicycles are of the highest quality enable us to offer you the Orbea Lifetime Warranty. It guards against defects in materials and workmanship and is activated using the unique registration number you’ll find on the down tube.
CUSTOMIZE YOUR WILD WITH MYO-SPEC
We place a host of possibilities in your hands for the creation of your Wild. We know that you like to make your own choices. For this reason, Orbea offers you options for bike color, component specifications, size and ergonomics – stem length, handlebar width, and crank length. In short, your Wild is truly yours. It will be created by you and for you.
