2011 Orbea Rallon 30
Orbea makes its mark in all-mountain and enduro with the 2011 Rallon 30. Made from hydroformed Tricone aluminum, the Rallon 30 aims to be the benchmark in its field on design, sealed bearings and performance.
The Rallon 30 is a result of the application of Advance Dynamics technology. This is a computer-based program that simulates the performance of dual suspension bikes. From here, Orbea and CEIT (Guipuzcoa Studies and Technical Research Centre) can take the data and use it to create a bike that is optimized in its suspension platform, travel, damper and sealed bearings.
With a tapered headtube, tapered Fox Talas fork, and an enduro-specific geometry, the Rallon 30 gets fine tuned. Long seat tubes, replaceable dropouts, short 17.2″ chainstays and a Fox RP23 boost valve shock with XV air canister are added to ensure that it is capable to handle descents, climbs and everything else in between.
The 2011 Rallon 30 is specc’d with a Shimano XT Dynasys 10-speed drivetrain and comes in four sizes. MSRP is $4499.
