Orbea Rallon X30 fullbike is weight about 14.63 kg and that's not a lightest bike out there, but this new all mountain bike have also many positives aspects as the weapon to go out to the trail.

The Orbea Rallon X30 is a modern all mountain bike just like others; 160 mm of travel and 27,5 inch wheels, better geometry for all mountain bike scene, and great suspension. What else? Rallon X30 also be able to climb better. Orbea adopts the similar-look-suspension sytem with Trek's ABP on their Rallon, but on the Rallon it has concentric pivot which reduce the effect of braking to the suspension. To handle this, Orbea puts the Fox suspension on both rear and front; the FOX CTD rear shock and FOX 34 Evolution 160 mm of travel.

One of the negatives part on the Rallon X30 is, this new Orbea all mountain bike is still using quick release model on the rear wheels, while most of new bikes, cross country to downhill is adopting the thru-axle model - despite Orbea may have their own reason why they are adopting the quick release model on rear wheels. It has no dropper post on it, so if possible the first upgrade is putting the dropper post on it. 

This new all mountain bike from Rallon is supported by great parts such as Fox suspension combo, RaceFace cockpit, and also Mavic wheels with Maxxis tires. Shimano SLX offers the perfect and smooth shifting for agressive type of riding. And when the bike is rolling so fast, the Formula brakes are ready to stop the bike. For the fans who want to get this bike must prepared some money about $3,699 Australia. (Photo: FlowMountainBike)
