New LIGHTWEIGHT e-MTB with 360wh Battery - Orbea RISE First Look

Meet the Orbea Rise, a lightweight e-bike designed to deliver a ride experience that is more like a regular mountain bike.

Orbea used Shimano's new EP8 motor with a custom tune dubbed RS (Ride Synergy).

This custom tune resulted in a restricted torque setting, allowing Orbea to use a lighter frame and traditional mountain bike parts.

The final product is an e-bike that is incredibly light and agile on the trail.
