The same Rise experience, in alloy.
Rise H30 is the lightest e-bike in its class. No other aluminium e-bike with this range and power delivery comes anywhere close to matching it. And lightness is key to the playful handling characteristics that sets Rise apart.
Developed with the Rider Synergy (RS) philosophy, the carbon Rise introduced the idea of a fully integrated system where power, weight,
interface and autonomy are considered together. Orbea brings this philosophy to a wider audience with the addition of the aluminium Rise.
Like its carbon sister, Rise Aluminiumâ€™s power comes from an EP8 RS motor, developed in an exclusive collaboration between Orbea and Shimano. To retain the natural pedalling and handling characteristics of the carbon Rise, Orbea's engineering team scrutinised all the details and invested many hours in development. Complementing the power of the motor is a brand new 540Wh battery that is as optimised and lightweight as possible, and has one of the highest energy densities on the market. And for the frame, Orbea selected the best materials and applied the most advanced manufacturing processes, just as it does for its highest-level carbon frames, to produce a frame that is about 2kg lighter than most aluminum e-bikes on the market.
Rise is a machine designed to expand your trail experience. It's an e-bike designed specifically for the trail rider that's minimalist, integrated and sleek with no bulky components to take you out of the moment.
Riding on trails with the electric momentum of an e-bike is exciting, but as e-bikes get more powerful, something important is lost. The smooth, natural experience of riding "normal" MTB goes away.
If the goal is to climb more, descend more and have more fun, then there's no need to sacrifice simplicity, responsiveness, excellent handling or weight.
The Rise was born with a new e-MTB philosophy: to bring fluid autonomy to an e-bike, where power, distance, interface and weight are addressed as a single, cohesive system. Rise brings you closer to the trails and the ride, nearer the sensation that less "e" delivers more "bike". Whether you crave riding greater distances, reaching more epic locations, improving efficiency or increasing the frequency of your adventures, Rise beyond expectations and discover the new standard in MTB.
- Long range: lighter bike, more efficient battery cells and lower power consumption result in long ride times
- Capable: handling characteristics akin to the highly regarded Occam trail bike
- Advanced and lightweight hydroformed triple butted aluminium frame with high polish frame finish that not only produces a sleek look, matching the aesthetics of a carbon frame, it also increases fatigue resistance in critical areas
- Trail ready specification including 140mm travel Marzocchi Bomber Z2 forks, Fox Float DPS Performance shock, Shimano 1x12 SLX/Deore drivetrain, Shimano M410 brakes, OC1 dropper post, RaceFace AR wheels and Maxxis Dissector and Rekon tyres
Rider Synergy (RS) Concept
RS is a new philosophy - a new riding experience that enhances the joy of traditional trail riding with smooth support that feels as natural and alive as your own body.
It results from a completely integrated system that becomes a reality when Power, Range, Interface and Weight are considered together.
When Shimano shared the plans for their new EP8 motor, Orbea quickly realised that this awesome drive unit offered the perfect platform on which to build the RS Power concept. Orbea's dream of a rider first, highly responsive and super-efficient system was within reach.
Working together Orbea developed proprietary electronics and batteries while Shimano configured the EP8 motor.
The maximum torque of the EP8 RS motor is 60Nm, with a power map designed to match your pedalling and cadence in a subtle, natural yet energetic way. The motor delivers maximum power when you are pedalling the strongest: the harder you pedal, the more power it will deliver. The instant power transmission is quiet and unnoticeable, yet it's sensitive and ultra responsive to your output, encouraging you to keep pedalling.
Power is only as useful as the manner in which it is applied. The EP8 RS power band feels alive, smooth and responsive, echoing your input and cadence.
Orbea's custom electronics are tuned so that the peak power delivery come at rider cadences of 75-95 rpm. This is no coincidence, as this range happens to be where experienced riders produce the most power and efficiency. This way the human and bike interaction is optimised and natural riding is enhanced.
- The harder you pedal, the more assistance Rise provides
- Full power comes when you're also doing your best
- It's instantaneous and extremely sensitive to your output
- It's an amazingly natural feeling that encourages you to pedal
- One of the quietest motors on the market provides a totally unique feel
- Maximum torque: 60Nm
- Weight: 2.6kg
As we are all different riders and we have different needs, Rise comes with two preset RS Power profiles. Both profiles can be fine-tuned in seconds to your personal liking, using the Shimano E-tube mobile app.
Profile 1 delivers a more subtle support feel, maximizing range and natural riding experience
Profile 2 is tuned for slightly more assistance within the RS Power parameters
Orbea considered the needs of riders looking for the experience and autonomy of a carbon Rise but at a more accessible price. The aluminium version is equipped with a new 540Wh battery, making Rise Aluminium more appealing for a wide spectrum of riders, reducing the price and increasing the simplicity of the system for those looking for a light e-bike without the need for a Range Extender. The new 540Wh battery has a record weight of just 2.7kg.
There's a range of more than 3500m of elevation change in Eco mode, 2200m in Trail and 1600m in Boost. As if that wasn't enough, Rise Aluminium can be paired with the 252Wh Range Extender, which results in a light e-bike battery capacity of almost 800Wh. The range extender cage is also compatible with standard water bottles, so you can optimise the battery/hydration configuration of every ride.
RS Smart Charger:
Extra battery capacity usually means a longer charging time, so Orbea developed a new smart charger for aluminium Rises. This charger detects if you're charging the new 540Wh battery or the new Range Extender and will adjust the charge voltage accordingly. For the main battery, the charge will be at 4A, reaching an 80% charge in just 3 hours; the Range Extender will be charged at 2A.
Data and display:
Rise H30 is equipped with the discreet Shimano SC-E7000 display, so you can easily see the most useful data, including assist mode, battery charge, speed, distance and time.
The classic GPS and cycle computer data is available through Garmin IQ, so that you can have all the information you could wish for - support mode, assist level, cadence, range, speed - on your favourite computer or smartwatch. Data is recorded within the Garmin IQ interface for further study, sharing with friends or just for reference months later to see how much battery was used in that epic ride you want to repeat.
Power button and charge port
The power button is tucked away by the bottom bracket, and all wires are routed internally. The charging port on the side of the seat tube is protected by a tough water and dirt proof cover. It also has an integrated Clean Clip feature that holds plugs tightly when using the RS Range Extender or just sealing the connectors when closed.
The beauty of the RS system is that assistance torque and power is provided within a range where normal, lighter, high-quality trail bike components can be used. Without the need for an overbuilt steel chainring Orbea and ethirteen have co-developed an exclusive alloy forged and CNC-finished 32T chainring that's light and provides perfect gearing.
Orbea selected the best materials and applied the most advanced
manufacturing processes, just as it does for its highest-level carbon frames. Thanks to the double- and triple-butted, hydroformed tubes, the team optimised the thickness and shapes of the tubes and reinforced the most delicate areas. In other words, it saves weight where you don't need material and adjusts the stiffness in the important areas.
In effort to give the highest level of attention to the new aluminium version, Orbea applied its polishing process to the frame. This technique smooths the welds at the tube joints, matching the aesthetics of a carbon frame. In fact, it's difficult to discern the differences between an aluminium frame and carbon frame. This process also increases aluminum's fatigue resistance in critical areas.
All this design and development work has resulted in an aluminum frame weight of merely 3.4kg - just 100g more than an Occam aluminium frame and 2kg lighter than most aluminium e-bikes on the market. The total weight of the new aluminum Rise is an impressive 19kg for the top-of-the-range H10 and 20kg for the H30.
The trail geometry is capable of handling the widest variety of terrain without making big compromises in any aspect of performance. Rise rules the zone between long-travel enduro territory and skinny-tyre XC efficiency that most of us encounter every day.
Trail balanced 140mm suspension: the support provided by the progressive rate along with the anti-squat characteristics of the main pivot placement mean Rise is an efficient pedaller that won't sap your energy in sustained efforts.
A high starting leverage rate gives a plush and active feel combined with excellent traction. A progressive curve controls the bike where the full travel is required - the big hits that inevitably come with pointing a capable bike down a rocky trail.
