Video Review - Orbea Rise e-MTB First Look
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.
While we loved the Rise, this latest iteration receives a number of small changes that amount to a substantial upgrade that easily makes the Rise one of the best electric mountain bikes at Contender Bicycles. Some make a serious difference on the trail, with the frame and battery being up to 400 g (0.88 lb). Other options, like an option for a larger 540 Wh battery extend your trail time 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.
