Orbea has launched the Onna, a new entry-level hardtail mountain bike that will replace the MX in the Basque brand’s range.
The Onna features an all-new design, according to Orbea, with an aluminium frame and updated yet familiar geometry.
Orbea says the Onna is designed as a “fun and efficient” gateway for riding cross-country trails. In Basque, the word ‘ona’ means good, but the name is also derived from one of the first guns the brand made in 1840 when it was a rifle company.
There are five bikes in the range, starting at £629 / €629 / $799 and rising to £1,099 / €1,099 / $1,399. Junior models will also be available in most territories. A versatile aluminium frame and 100mm of travel
At the heart of the Onna is a hydroformed aluminium frame weighing approximately 1.8kg in a size medium, according to Orbea. That’s roughly 200g heavier than the more XC-focused (and more expensive) Orbea Alma H-series.
The Onna is designed around a suspension fork with 100mm of travel, with SR Suntour and Rockshox forks specced through the range.
