Whether you're a seasoned veteran, or you're brand new to the world of knobby tires, the Orbea Alma H10 Complete Mountain Bike gives you everything you need to enjoy the ride, without any unnecessary fluff. Built around Orbea's aluminum Alma frame, and rolling on an assortment of Shimano, Fox, and Race Face components, the Alma is easily race-worthy. But even if you don't choose to strap a number plate to it, it'll handle your favorite trails with all the gusto you'd expect from the Basque brand's mountain bike lineup. Orbea borrowed heavily from its carbon fiber Alma when it came time to design the Alma Hydro frame.

The drivetrain is a Shimano blend, which features SLX shifters, brakes, and front derailleur, with the lighter weight XT group getting the nod for rear derailleur and double chainring crankset. By combining a new-school double with the 11-36 cassette, you get quick, crisp shifts, and plenty of range to tackle the hilliest t...
