Video Review - Orbea Rise e-MTB First Look

Written by Contender Bicycles, on January 30, 2023

The Orbea Rise electric mountain bike is one of our favorite electric mountain bikes available. While there might be competitors, there are still few options quite like it: low weight, enough power, and importantly, handling and ride quality that feels similar to an acoustic or standard trail bike. 

Although we already admired the Rise, this latest version introduces several minor adjustments that collectively amount to a significant upgrade, solidifying the Rise as one of the top electric mountain bikes at Contender Bicycles. Certain changes notably enhance trail performance, such as the frame and battery shedding up to 400 g (0.88 lb). Additionally, the availability of a larger 540 Wh battery option extends your trail adventures even further.

Want to know how the Rise got even lighter, how Orbea added a multi-tool to the bike, or what options Rise comes with? We break it all down in our Orbea Rise Tech Review, seen below.
