The Orbea Alma OMX 2021 has just reached the top of the World Cup podium with Victor Koretzky, it has been the first World Cup victory for the Frenchman and the choice of this bike and its assembly seems to have helped him to achieve it. This was the lightest mountain bike of the leading riders and here we bring it to you in detail with the set-up chosen by KMC Orbea together with Koretzky, how much do you think it weighs?

Among the top five riders at the Albstadt World Cup, only Nino Schurter chose a full mountain bike, but Victor Koretzky "risked" even more than the rest and opted for a hardtail MTB that was as light as possible. To do so, he chose one of the lightest frames on the market - the Orbea Alma OMX weighs only 830g - and went without a telescopic fork.

With this sticker, the UCI referees identify the bike that has been used in the Short Track and with which the XCO event must be ridden. 
Koretzky is sure to keep that number forever.
