The all new Orbea Rise M-Team is a ground-breaking full suspension, pedal assist mountain bike. By redefining the class standard with an ultra-lightweight complete bike that blows away any expectations you may have had for this type of bike.
Using a brand new power train, the Shimano EP8 motor and battery tube, the Orbea Rise M-Team weighs a tiny 37 pounds.
Yes. You read that right. A full suspension, electric pedal assist mountain bike that weighs as much as many standard mountain bikes on the market. THIRTY SEVEN pounds.
The lightweight motor comes with a smaller battery, but don’t let that scare you. The motor needs less energy to move a lighter bike, meaning fewer watts for the same result. With an available range-extending battery mounted to the frame like a water bottle cage, Orbea claims a maximum range of eight hours and 4,000 meters of climbing in eco mode. Your results will vary depending on style of riding.
The Shimano EP8 is not just lightweight, it’s an evolution of technology. With customizable rider profiles, you can ‘preprogram’ the type of assist you want. If you need a harder workout while using a pedal assist to help you move, set Profile A to your specific tastes in a variety of ways. Profile B can be your recovery ride profile. Whatever you want.
The customizability is detailed down to your preferred assist start level. Choose a subtle assist level to kick in after a more natural feeling start, or tell the motor to kick in immediately so you feel the assist from the split second you start pedaling.
Designed to provide peak pedal assist at 80-90 rpm, the Orbea is created to be a ride enhancer. Using what Orbea calls the Riders Synergy Concept, RS for short, the bike is engineered to feel as natural as possible. A low weight is a start, but the subtle features of the EP8 motor and sensors create a ride that might help you forget you’ve got a little boost coming from a battery.
The Orbea Rise M-Team is a top end mountain bike in every way. Loaded up with a Shimano XTR 1x12 speed drivetrain and ultra plush Fox DPX2 Factory 3-Position Adjust Evol Kashima shock and Fox 36 Float Factory 150 Grip2 fork with 140mm travel front and back.
A Maxxis Rekon/Dissector tire combo on a set of Race Face Turbine R30 wheels keep you rolling smoothly.
When you need to mix up your geometry to optimize climbing and descending, a Fox Transfer Factory Kashima dropper post has you covered.
The game has changed when it comes to full suspension pedal assist mountain bikes and Orbea is winning.
