Orbea have re-designed their Wild FS electric bike for 2023. It comes with a new frame, new motor, new battery and new geometry. The Orbea Wild FS is Orbea’s electric enduro bike and has been designed with input from the Orbea FOX Enduro Team.
It’s already getting some very positive reviews with Singletrack World saying that “Orbea are arguably way ahead of most other brands when it comes to addressing what ebike riders actually want.”
51% stiffer and 32.5% lighter
The biggest change on the 2023 Wild is the frame. Orbea have got rid of the removable battery that came on earlier versions of the Wild. By making the battery fully integrated into the frame Orbea have been able to remove lots of parts and complexity. At the same time that makes the frame stiffer, lighter and improves the ride characteristics. It does mean that you can’t remove the battery from the bike for charging. But for most people that will simply mean moving the bike or running an extension cable.
The new frame comes in both carbon and aluminium versions and can take a 625wh or 750wh battery so you have masses of range. All models in the Wild range use the Bosch CX Performance Line motor. However, Orbea is one of the few brands that also offers the Bosch CX Performance Line Race motor. This motor is designed for high-level competition and will be available on the Wild M LTD model.
