Trail Tales: Merci Mont Blanc
A Tribute to the Legendary Tour de Mont Blanc
There is something about Mont Blanc that inspires adventurers from all over the world. Thousands of people gather every year under the shadow of its imposing 4,808 meters to enjoy the thrill of adventure, whether climbing, running, skiing, hiking or, of course, mountain biking.
At Orbea we are always looking to overcome obstacles and discover how high we can raise the bar. That’s why it was unthinkable for us not to set ourselves the challenge of exploring this mythical mecca of mountain sports. The spirit of Mont Blanc has conquered us. Want to see why?
This is the place chosen for a new episode of Trail Tales: Merci Mont Blanc. A tribute to one of the most impressive routes in Europe, the Tour de Mont Blanc, which invites you to ride nearly 170 km and 10,000 m of elevation gain on a great circular route through Switzerland, Italy and France.
But cycling around the highest peak in the Alps and Western Europe is no easy task. It takes a mountain bike as eager to reach new horizons as the Trail Tales bikers. On this occasion, they have chosen our lightest and most enjoyment-oriented eMTB to take on this great challenge: the new Rise.
RISE IS THE PERFECT COMPANION IN THIS GREAT ADVENTURE. A BIKE DESIGNED TO ENJOY VARIED AND IMMERSIVE TRAILS LIKE THOSE OF THE TOUR DE MONT BLANC
Our award-winning Rise is a mountain bike designed to revolutionize the lightweight eMTB segment. And in the electric mountain bike universe, that means a natural pedal feel, lighter weight, instant power, longer range (with up to 540 WH + Range Extender battery), responsive handling and plenty of trails to test its capabilities.
