2019 Orbea Rallon M-LTD
The 2019 Orbea Rallon M-LTD comes loaded with the best components on the market. Equipped with an XX1 Eagle Gold 12 speed drivetrain which is at the pinnacle of shifting and including the XX1 Gold Carbon crankset.
DT Swiss 240 hubs on ENVE M730 Rims which we have both been able to try out and can say they are one of the best carbon wheelsets out there. When buying a big travel 29er one of the most important upgrades is getting yourself a decent wheelset, it plays a huge part in how the bike rides when having 29″ wheels. It can really transform the bike.
Equipped with the new 2019 Fox Factory Float 36 Grip 2 RC2s and DHX2 coil with a choice of equipping it with the Float X2 or the new lighter weight package of the DPX2, Orbea are truly giving you the options to cater for your requirements. Braking is supplied with Sram CODE RSCs giving you the power you need for what the bike is created for.

2019 Orbea Rallon First Ride Reviews
Pinkbike – “On the trails, the Rallon feels stiff and agile. This bike asks for speed, and rides true to its racing-oriented spirit. The climbing and general pedaling position make you feel comfortable without the feeling of fighting against the bike as with some other enduro beasts.”
Dirt Magazine – Straight out of the box this bike is a weapon! Built to go fast and eat up the terrain. Even more so in my eyes with the coil damper fitted. This made for a much more supple ride when the going got tough and with a weight coming in at 12.59kg (27.7lbs) with the coil shock damper too!
Vital MTB – Just a few short years ago we never expected to be praising 29-inch bikes so often, but you can’t deny a good ride. Orbea’s new Rallon is yet another new wagon-wheeled bike that will put a grin on any descent-craving aggressive rider’s face. With excellent handling in the steep, fast, and rowdy, all while being capable of making the journey to the top, the Rallon is absolutely one bike we wouldn’t hesitate to throw a leg over again. With Metric and Boost spacing, modern enduro geometry, and well-thought-out features and design, we’re sure the shelf life of this bike will deliver years of hard charging and fun riding to come.
