Orbea Rallon M10 Mountain Bike 2019
Exhilaration. Excitement. Excellence.
Rated #3 in the Red Bull ‘Hottest Enduro bikes for 2019’ list, the M10 was described as ‘A reliable all-rounder’. It’s true, but it’s so much more FUN than that!It does it all; a brilliant climber, yes, tackles challenging trails, yes but that feeling, that rush of downhill exhilaration that can’t be beaten.
‘If you want a rig you can throw into the gnarliest terrain with total confidence, line up and be competitive at the highest level of endure racing or occasionally mix it up and go for a big day pedalling in the hills, then this bike ticks all the boxes.’ BikeRadar
The wheels are 29” and it has 150mm travel. It’s enduro focussed and the carbon composite frame offers low weight and high strength. Orbea have a proven Olympic pedigree and don’t compromise on the quality of components. This bike has learnt from the rest. Orbea are so confident in it, you get a Lifetime Warranty.
You can really make the MT10 your own. Not only can you choose the tyres, wheels, saddle and handlebars, you can put together your own colour scheme and add your name to the top tube – at no extra cost (ask about delivery times)!

Orbea have fully embraced enduro geometry in the development of the MT10:The slack head angle ensures good stability at speed through rough terrain.Adjustable geometry means you can drop the BB by 7mm and slacken angles by 0.5° with a quick rotation of the shock mount pin.The long cockpit provides optimum balance and weight distribution.The low bottom bracket lets you corner naturally with a low centre of gravity.The long wheelbase enables good stability at high speeds.The short chainstays allow great agility and manoeuvrability, especially at low speeds.The steep seat angle gives you a better pedalling position even with the generous suspension sag.
Of all the materials used to build bicycle frames, carbon composites offer the most advantageous blend of low weight, high strength and ease of manipulation. What Orbea do with the composites – the selection of materials and how they are used – is key to the final result.
LIGHTNESS: Optimized layups and fewer frame pieces reduce weight. High modulus and high strength carbon are blended to achieve the best strength-to-weight ratio.
STIFFNESS: Single uniform structures are better optimized to resist deflection. By reducing the number of frame pieces, larger carbon structures are tuned to deliver maximum stiffness without weight penalties.
RELIABILITY: Eliminating bonded areas increases strength and relent-less testing gives confidence. The lifetime warranty assures your Orbea will be a long-time companion.
FULL CARBON: Engineering a frame that uses as much carbon as possible of course saves weight but it also contributes to the sophistication and refinement of the Rallon.
OFFSET PIVOT LINKRallon’s concentric boost suspension, provides unique freedom to our engineers to finely design the kinematics so that pedalling efficiency, small bump sensibility, suspension progressivity and rear system stiffness to weight ratio can be independently optimized.A high main pivot point provides minimum pedalling energy losses at the same time the seat stays and linkage positioning ensure just the right progressivity for outstanding bumps absorption and ultimate grip and control.
The suspension provides just the right progressivity (10%) so that can be used with any of the air or coil specifically tailor tuned Fox shocks, ensuring every rider gets the maximum performance out of the box.
CONCENTRIC BOOSTIncreasing rear axle spacing to 148mm over the 142mm standard moves the chainline outboard by 3mm, increasing the space available at the bottom bracket. This doesn’t sound like much but means that tire clearance an be increased without sacrificing drivetrain clearance or swingarm rigidity. All of it adds up to more durability, nimble handling and a bike that tracks better through rough terrain.
ASYMMETRY ERGONOMICSThe asymmetric/offset design offers unique advantages beyond stiffness and low weight.The shock is mounted in a position that offers incredibly easy access to damper controls, and without a frame support in the way, adjusting progressivity with volume spacers is easy to do right on the bike. By offsetting the shock, the amount of vertical space required to fit the shock and frame support is reduced, leaving room for a tool kit and a 500ml bottle with easy left-side access.The 12mm offset of the shock allows the vertical distance taken up by the top tube, shock and frame reinforcement to be compressed. The top tube is therefore lower for extremely low standover.
