The 2022 Orbea Alma H30 Hardtail Mountain Bike is the entry level bike in the Alma range. It is based on their World Cup Cross Country race bike to give you a light, fast and fun bike that is a blast to ride on singletrack.

The Alma H30 is built around a hydroformed aluminium frame. It uses geometry based on the demands of the harshest modern racecourses. A slacker head angle improves handling on technical sections while a steeper seat angle and lower stack height increase handling precision and pedalling efficiency. Shorter chainstays deliver maximum agility without instability.

The top tube of the Alma has a distinctive bend in it; this is part of Orbea's 4x4 Dynamic Structure. It adds a natural flex point in the frame which gives you an efficient, smooth ride that feels like floating over rough terrain. Boost spacing at the back allows for shorter chainstays, increased rigidity and more tyre clearance. That all adds up to a bike that accelerates better and tracks better through rocks and roots.

The Alma H30 comes with a great value build that includes a 100mm travel RockShox Judy Silver TK air sprung fork which allows you to fine tune the fork to your riding style. 1 x 12 speed Shimano Deore gears and Mt201 brakes are super reliable while tubeless ready rims offer an easy path to upgrades.

This bike is perfect for

Riders who like to go fast. The Alma is based on race-winning pro-level bikes. It will have you blasting through the local woods and doing laps at your local trail centre in record times. With 12 speed gearing and an air fork you have essentials you need from a modern bike.

Mountain Bike Buying Guide

Mountain biking is an incredibly diverse sport. Mountain bikes now come in three main flavours. They are XC, Trail and Enduro.

XC – short for cross country, are quick race bikes. They will normally have 29” wheels and come with 100mm of suspension. If you are mainly going to be riding bridleways and natural trails in the South East of England, where our shops are, an XC bike will be the quickest and most efficient option.

Trail – these bikes are designed to be pedalled up and down hill and for use on bridleways and natural trails, but also at dedicated trail centres. They normally come with 130mm or 140mm of suspension travel and can have either 27.5” or 29” wheels, but 29” is quickly becoming the norm. Trail bikes are good all-rounders. They won’t be as fast as an XC bike on the flat but they can handle a lot more challenging terrain, and a few jumps. If you plan on taking your bike to trail centres in Wales, or to the Alps, then a trail bike may be your best option.

Enduro – enduro racing is a thing in and of itself but many people buy enduro bikes for ‘aggressive’ trail riding and uplift days at places like Bike Park Wales. This generally means challenging downhill trails with some big jumps. With around 160mm of suspension travel enduro bikes can take some big hits. They are designed to be efficient enough to pedal up hills but really come into their own when pointed downhill. You get enduro bikes in either 27.5” or 29” wheel sizes as well as mullet setups of 29 at the front and 27.5 at the back.


Men’s and women’s mountain bikes

Nearly all the mountain bikes we sell are now unisex. All of the big brands have gradually stopped doing dedicated men’s and women’s bikes over the last few years. Instead they are focussed on producing bikes in a bigger range of sizes. So, for instance, the Trek Marlin 5 is a unisex bike that now comes in sizes from XXS to XXL large. This means it will fit riders from 4’ 5” to 6’ 5” and everything in between.

Who are Orbea?

Orbea pronounced Or-bay-ah is named after the brothers who founded the company in 1840. Initially, the company manufactured rifles and guns. The company has been making bikes since the early 1930s and winning Tour de France stages for just as long. All Orbea Bikes are assembled at the Orbea Factory based in the heart of the Basque country in Northern Spain or in their facility in Portugal.

Orbea does things a little differently from many of the big American bike brands. As the heart of Orbea's manufacturing is still in Spain and Portugal Orbea can offer much more customised service. This includes the ability to swap out colours and parts on most of their higher-end bikes to suit individual customers through their MyO program.

Although best known for their road bikes Orbea are increasingly making a name for themselves as a mountain bike brand.
