Orbea Alma Bike

www.orbea.com

The new Orbea Alma is backed by exhaustive work carried out with users, research and the desire to always remain one step ahead of the rest. Thanks to this continuous contact with bike fans, we have achieved a bicycle that is like no other: it is totally unique, and these are the reasons why:


Orbea's Alma is their premier carbon hardtail--all new for 2010 

We present a bike that will have two carbon versions:

Gold and Silver. This innovation has been made possible by Orbea’s carbon know-how, which has allowed us to develop two different fibre levels for mountain bikes. Gold fibres are ultra-high modulus fibres that improve traction resistance and compression, obtaining structures with an extremely high stiffness. Combined with low specific-weight carbon fibres, they allow us to construct frames with an optimum weight-to-stiffness ratio. These materials, in combination with laminates that have undergone iterative processes of finite element analysis (FEA), enable us to create a frame that guarantees the maximum stiffness and the minimum weight. This type of fibre is used for top-level competition: we are placing the market’s top technology in the hands of bike lovers.

The Alma is an all-terrain giant. The 4x4 evolved from the 4PT (Four-Point Triangle: a four-point rear triangle that ensures greater stiffness and ...

Review: DT Swiss FR 2350 Wheels

By Ryan Cleek
DT Swiss built this wheelset for serious downhillers who aren’t afraid to ride wide open. The FR 2350s were developed on the World Cup race circuit with the Santa Cruz Syndicate Team, and Sam Hill. The FR 2350 wheels are sold indivi- dually. The front sells for $461, and $623 for the rear.



Tech features: The red DT Swiss’ FR 2350 wheels feature a 20-millimeter thru-axle front hub, and rear wheels are available in three different sizes: 135x10-millimeters, 135x12-millimeters, and 150x12-millimeters. The wheelset we reviewed features the standard front wheel and a 150x12-millimeter rear wheel. The 32-spoke front wheel features three-cross lacing, DT Pro Lock brass nipples, stainless steel cartridge bearings and is available with a DT Swiss conversion kit with a DT Swiss Thru-Bolt. Our FR 2350 front wheel weighed 2.35 pounds. The 150x12-millimeter FR 2350 rear wheel features DT Swiss’ Ratchet System freehub, stainless cartridge bearings, and utilizes a 12-millimeter thru-axle. Our triple-butted, 32-spoke rear wheel weighed 2.8 pounds, and, like the front wheel, can be converted to DT Swiss’ 10-millimeter Thru-Bolt axle. The FR 2350 wheelset includes rim tape, a wheel bag and centering, too, plus it comes with a two-year warranty. DT Swiss USA, (970) 242-9232.
