ORBEA Alma M50 2018
|Options||Size: M in 29; Colour: Satin Black/Orange; In Stock|
Alma is for the the quickest lap times, the steepest climbs, the strongest accelerations and the 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.
Build using the most technically advanced carbon processes, the Alma M50 is super-light and super-responsive. While the XC geometry is designed for lightning speed, the complex tube shaping and 4X4 Dynamic Structure enhances compliance so you don't have to sacrifice ride comfort.
Upgrades from Alma H30:
- Carbon OMP frame
- RockShox Reba RL fork
The Alma M50 is available with both 27.5 and 29 wheel sizes.
- Carbon OMP: an advanced mix of standard, high modulus and high strength carbon fibres are used in optimum layup patterns to achieve a frame with an excellent stiffness to weight ratio. EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) moulding at the crucial headtube and bottom bracket areas eliminates wrinkles, allowing less carbon to be used for a lighter frame, whilst maintaining overall strength.
The tapered head tube is a principle element of the Alma frame design, providing greater stiffness and steering precision by allowing larger tube junctures at the front of the bike where stresses are high.
All of this produces the lightweight Alma frame that is designed to exceed your expectations.
- 4X4 technology: allows improvements in in the balance between stiffness and strength inherent in a typical front or rear triangle in order to maximize comfort as well as efficiency. The front and rear triangles are modified through the addition of a short fourth member, essentially creating a quadrangle. Forces applied to the 4x4 design are mitigated by deflection at the joints. This small amount of flex is part of the design, and it is what makes Alma so comfortable. All this comes with no decrease in torsional stiffness and resistance to your power input. Reach the finish line faster and fresher with 4x4.
- XC Geometry: Designed for speed. The head tube angle balances razor sharp steering for twisty trails with stability for high speed descents. And since proper fore-aft balance and pedalling efficiency are important, the seat tube angle is designed to ensure an optimum position on the bike. Short chainstays maintain a lively feel and offer effortless manoeuvrability on technical terrain no matter the wheel size. Even the standover clearance is enhanced so that you can feel comfortable about stepping off the pedals on uneven surfaces.
- Boost: Wider hub spacing alters the angle of the spokes, creating stiffer, stronger wheels. It also allows for wider tyres and shorter chainstays, thus increasing handling agility, grip and fun!
