2019 Orbea Rallon M-Team
The 2019 Orbea Rallon M-Team is going to be the game changer of 2019 at £5399 it’s an outstanding package from Orbea. Very similar build to the current 2018 Rallon M-team with it being equipped with SRAM X01 Eagle 12 speed and a SRAM Descendant carbon crank this time using the new DUB cranks from SRAM or a choice of a Rotor QX1 crankset with a 32T chainring.
A great upgrade from the current 2017 Rallon is the new Shimano XT M8020 4 pot brakes. Continuing with the Dt Swiss spline E-1501s in 30mm width. Wider, stiffer which means a better profile for the tyres, bigger footprint on the ground resulting in more grip on the trail, a no brainer and possibly one of the best aluminium wheelsets on the market right now.

2018 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.
