NEWS: ORBEA LAUNCHES NEW RALLON!
NEW RALLON: FOCUS ON FAST(ER)
● Orbea’s Enduro machine is upgraded with a longer travel and a slacker head angle
that make it more capable and faster on the demanding EDR and bike park
● New graphics and two new colors plus geometry changes make Rallon the Enduro
model to beat.
The Orbea Rallon was forged on the racecourse and is the obvious choice of our EDR race team, but
Rallon is always ready for fun outside of the tape and loves fast laps with friends, high-5 ́s
and near misses. Fearless, Rallon is up for hitting the biggest gaps in the park, smashing
berms, and scorning braking bumps. Forget limits, forget distractions, just focus on fast.
Intended Use: Enduro, Park, Big Mountain Wheel Size: 29” or Mullet
Material: OMR Carbon Travel: 167mm (rear) / 170mm (front)
Sizes: S, M, L, XL
WHAT MAKES RALLON UNIQUE?
NEW GEOMETRY: The new Rallon increases its travel from 160 mm to 167 mm and
achieves greater absorption capacity on the demanding UCI EDR courses. It also
has more aggressive geometry with a more aggressive steering angle that goes from
64º to 63.5º. Improvements that make the fastest Enduro machine even faster.
NEW COLORS and BUILDS: Rallon releases new graphics as well as two new
colors Forest Green – Blue Stone and Mars Red – Black. As if that weren’t enough,
the Sram AXS is also available on the M11 and M-LTD models.
Enduro racing continues to evolve, with more aggressive tracks, and Rallon evolves
too. The latest update offers more travel and more aggressive geometry to help
riders push harder for longer.
– LONG, LOW AND SLACK: The 63.5º or 64º head angle, 485mm reach on
the large frame and 28mm or 35mm BB drop give Rallon incredible stability at
speed and natural cornering.
– LOW STANDOVER: The seat tube is uninterrupted and also shorter, giving
lower standover than ever. The Rallon is designed to work with 200mm
– STEEP SEAT ANGLE: The steep seat tube helps improve the pedalling
position and stability on the climbs as well as working better with long dropper
– ADJUSTABLE: Rallon continues with it’s LOW and LOWER positions which
STEEP AND DEEP: When things get steep you want to drop your saddle deep out of
the way and just focus on fast! More space to move your body means more control
and more control means more speed. But low saddles mean long droppers which
need short seat tubes. The trick is achieving this without affecting either seat post
insertion or frame geometry. With its steep seat tube and deep insertion Rallon has
one of the lowest standovers around, meaning lots of space for your choice of long
travel dropper posts. Get that saddle right out of the way when things get steep and
deep, long travel droppers are the only way.
Rallon is available in four sizes, S, M, L and XL, and thanks to Steep and Deep you
can pick between sizes to get your preferred reach. Choose a larger size to maximise
stability, or go with a smaller size for a more playful Rallon. Most riders will be able to
pick between two or three sizes and will be able to fit a 200mm dropper post.
PARTY OUT BACK?: Interested in sporting a mullet with your new Rallon? Choose
27.5″ or 29″ rear wheels without affecting geometry using the two included shock
extenders. Focus on fast with 29″ or focus on fun with 27″, whatever you choose the
Rallon has you covered.
LOCKR FRAME STORAGE: Leave your pack at home and just focus on fast! Rallon
is packed with clever storage spaces for all the essential tools and water you need
for shorter rides or enduro races. The full sized water bottle is easy to reach.
Packless runs are fast and fun.
In the downtube LOCKR zone we have two sealed bags, with tube, tyre levers and
space for two C02 cartridges. Additionally the main pivot and rear axle are filled with
cleverly designed tools, held securely with magnets. With a tube, tyre repair, tube,
hex keys from 3 to 6mm and a T25, all held securely in space, Rallon is fully
FOCUS ON FAST: Racing is all about focus and you don’t need to be distracted by
the noise your bike is making. The only noise you want to hear is the crowd cheering.
The Rallon uses custom co-moulded plastic protectors to shield the frame from
impacts and remove chain noise. Cable noise is eliminated using internal cable
guides, improved silicon plugs at the frame entry and exit points and clever conduits
linking the front and rear triangle. This attention to the details means you can focus
on just riding fast.
PRECISION TRACKING: Frame rigidity affects feel and grip and it is possible to
have a frame which is too stiff to track the terrain efficiently. Manipulating the carbon
weave allows us to control flexibility without sacrificing strength, giving a perfectly
balanced front and rear triangle stiffness. A lot of technology, modeling and testing
which translates to confidence and grip on rough cambered terrain and valuable
fractions in race runs.
FULLY SEALED BEARINGS: Everyone hates changing bearings. Normally bearings
fail due to being dirty, not overloaded, and with Rallon we have worked hard to seal
all the bearings. Clean bearings last longer and also keep the suspension working
optimally when the conditions are filthy.
SUSPENSION: Totally revised suspension kinematics give a more progressive suspension curve with a
more rearward axle path which, combined with 167mm of rear travel is hard to beat; fast and
agile in the turns with plenty of control and traction in the rough. Add the beefy Fox 38 fork
and Rallon is ready for whatever you have in mind.
GRAVITY ORIENTED KINEMATICS:
LINEAR PROGRESSIVE – 22-33%
A high starting leverage rate gives a plush and active feel combined with terrific
traction. A progressive curve controls the bike in full-travel situations – the inevitable
big hits that come along with pointing a capable bike down a rocky trail.
IMPROVED AXEL PATH
A more forward pivot point increases the backwards component of the axel path,
particularly in the first part of the travel. The Rallon floats through square hits with
ease, maintaining speed and minimising fatigue.
BRAKING AND PEDALING CHARACTERISTICS
Anti-rise and anti-squat are kept largely the same because our racers love the way
the bike remains active under braking and sprints out of slower speed turns.
MYO: DESIGN YOUR RIDE
We are familiar with the draw of self-expression and a desire to create. For years the MyO
program has allowed riders to personalize their Orbeas to an extent that is unique in the
industry. Customize the paint of your Rallon for free. Say “NO” to the standard Bike In A Box
offered by our competitors.
We offer MyO component options for many Orbea models. Switching a wheelset, gearing or
other components is possible through the ordering process, so your Rallon arrives at the
dealer in the exact configuration you desire.
