The Alu-Alma is just a sexy looking bike. The abbreviation “H” in the model name always marks the aluminum frame at Orbea. With its balanced handling, riding the ALMA H50 feels really intuitive. Compared with what the market offers, the seating position is neither super sporty, nor uber-comfortable. In the saddle of the Orbea Hardtail, you´ll enjoy a moderate position. With a price price below under 1000 Euro, the Orbea Hardtail is one of the best models in the on fortified paths category. With 25 years warranty, you can not go wrong.

Size Chart

Almost every manufacturer has a size calculator for its bikes online. Nevertheless, we take a look at the geometry of each bike, completely detached from the recommendation of the manufacturer. Why: We want to give you an absolutely objective assessment of the frame size that suits you. We calculate with statistical averages for the ratio of leg length and height. If you want to know exactly what size you need, you should read this blog post from us. Here we explain how you can measure your leg length in less than 5 minutes and then determine your perfect frame size.

How Do We Review Bikes

With all the info we give you here about the bikes, you’re probably wondering: are these guys credible at all? That’s why we’ve prepared an article for you that explains exactly who is behind this website and what our mission is. 

At BIKE-TEST.COM we rate bikes as objectively as possible. Our innovative rating system has three groundbreaking advantages over all other product tests you can find on the internet:

  1. We catalog and rate bikes on over 200 criteria. No one else takes such a comprehensive look at a bike. Our revolutionary data processing allows us to break down the complete experience of over 100,000 kilometers in the saddle to each individual bike.
  2. We treat every bike exactly the same, no matter which manufacturer it comes from. You won’t get a more objective statement about mountain bikes anywhere.
  3. It’s free!

Here we explain in detail how we rate bikes. The short version: We evaluate each individual part in its quality and compare whether the individual part fits the respective area of use of the bike. In addition, we also check the geometry of a bike and draw conclusions about how this bike rides. If a bike has earned a BIKE-TEST.COM TIP, it has not only a particularly good equipment, but usually also an excellent geometry.

About The Brand

“The Basques of Orbea are known primarily for their high-quality fullys and hardtails. Especially the downcountry models Oiz, the All Mountain Occam and the Enduro Rallon impress with first-class design and excellent function.”

This is what BRAND is famous for:

Orbea bikes have a very special charm. The Basque bicycle company is organized as a cooperative and, as a special feature, always offers its high-quality models in several color variants. Sometimes there are certain models even with an option for a custom paint job. This unique selling point is made possible because, although the Basques manufacture a large proportion of their bikes in Asia, the paint is applied at the company’s headquarters in Spain. In recent years, Orbea bikes have become increasingly popular on the German market. However, with about 150 dealers in Germany, the brand still retains a touch of exclusivity. In terms of sport, Orbea is extremely successful in the cross country and enduro sectors. The Orbea Enduro Team has several riders under contract, Martin Maes and Damien Otton, who are always good for a win in the Enduro World Series. Victor Koretzky has won Cross Country World Cups on the Orbea Alma and Oiz. The Basques give a lifetime warranty on all their frames and offer on their homepage the possibility to order bikes online and then pick them up at the dealer.
