Alma is for the the quickest lap times. The steepest climbs. Alma is for the strongest accelerations and highest altitudes. Alma is for the biggest stages, the loudest fans and the toughest riders. Alma is for the fiercest competitors, the athletes who accept nothing less than superlatives. When a few fleeting seconds separate fast from faster, Alma is for the fastest.
4X4 DYNAMIC STRUCTURE
The external forces acting on the frame under the rider's weight, such as cornering or ground vibration, impair control and traction. The natural bending pattern in the top tube due to an additional fourth bend allows an efficient, smooth ride, as if the wheel floats above the rough ground.
Instead of trying to force every rider into a single wheel size, Orbea offers "Big Wheels" for riders of all sizes. The Alma offers you five frame sizes and two wheel sizes: Small and medium with 27.5" wheels and small, medium, large and XL with 29" wheels.
With its 420 / 430 mm chainstays and the increased strength of its continuous 12 mm axle system, the Alma is more precise and responsive than ever. The Boost 148 standard stands for a wider rear end, allowing the chain to move outwards by 3 mm and thus more space at the crank.
WORLD CUP GEOMETRY
The refinements of the Alma World Cup geometry reflect the development of the elite race. The more relaxed steering head angle (69.3º / 69.5º) offers more stability on increasingly demanding slopes. The steeper seat angle and lower handlebar height increase steering precision and pedalling efficiency. The shorter chainstays (420/430 mm) offer maximum agility without loss of stability.
