If you’ve been looking at the Orbea Wild FS there are now another two options to add to your shopping list. As well as the original carbon model we reviewed here, it is now available in an additional alloy model and alloy/carbon hybrid model. Choices choices…
In addition to having to choose your frame material, you’ll also have to choose a build spec – an if you want to, you could customise that using Orbea’s ‘MyO’ or ‘MyO Lite’. All come with 160mm travel front and rear and the Bosch Gen 4 motor, with a 625Wh battery (but there’s the choice to expand that up to 1125Wh with a second battery).
Three sizes – SM/L/XL – are available, and prices start at £4,299.
- Wild FS M-LTD – £7,899
- Wild FS M Team – £6,999
- Wild FS M10 – £5,999
- Wild FS M20 – £5,299
- Wild FS H10 – £5,299
- Wild FS H15 – £4,899
- Wild FS H25 – £4,299
If you’re looking at the images above and wondering what the differences are between the different models, there’s a handy guide here:
As with the carbon model, there are features like a tool-less locking mechanism for the battery; a power-locked keypad for the master key; a frame protector for the Acros Block Lock 164º; a protective, resistant and lightweight polymer on the motor; and a removable shift pin
Boggled? You’ve not even got started on the MyO and MyO Lite customisation options, which together give you a reported 1 million possible configurations. Head to Orbea’s website to get picking.
