The category-defining Orbea Rise eMTB has been updated for 2023, now driven by the Shimano EP801 RS Motor. This super lightweight eBike is now lighter than ever; while travel and geometry remain unchanged, a revised link and new 360 Wh battery bring the weight down to an astounding 15.94 kg (35.14 lbs) in a size medium.
Today, the Basque Country brand has announced seven new models; four carbon and three hydroformed aluminum, with pricing ranging from $5,299 USD to $11,499 USD. Among them is the Rise M-TEAM, the first eMTB to boast Shimano’s 12 Speed XT Di2 drivetrain. Here’s everything you need to know. 2023 Orbea Rise eMTB

Within Orbea’s distillation of “the most natural-feeling eBike on the market” is the RS motors wherein the maximum torque is limited to just 60Nm, as opposed to the regular 85Nm.
