Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the Orbea Wild FS. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

11 reasons to buy

  • Testers say the bike’s geometry encourages a comfortable riding position uphill, but its short stack creates a more aggressive position for descents.
  • Experts loved the stopping power of Shimano hydraulic brakes. They're great at biting into turns and stopping this heavy e-bike.
  • With 160mm of travel, the full suspension can handle aggressive terrain.
  • Stock 29" wheel options are covered by DT Swiss and Race Face.
  • Reviewers noted the Maxxis 2.6-inch tires provide excellent grip, even in mud.
  • The integrated 625Wh Bosch PowerTube battery delivers a maximum range of 45-70 miles. You can attach an additional 500Wh battery pack to extend your ride.
  • There are four settings on the Bosch Performance CX motor: Eco, Tour, eMTB, and Turbo. Testers loved the range and flexibility of the eMTB mode.
  • The Orbea Wild is available in three sizes - small/medium, large, and extra-large - with seven builds to choose from.
  • Most models are specced with a Bosch Kiox display, which is tech-rich and filled with data like cadence, power, and navigation.
  • Orbea included thoughtful stock add-ons including a water bottle cage and bumper stops on the fork to protect the frame.
  • The battery key is housed in a hidden compartment inside the handlebar stem.

3 reasons not to buy

  • Multiple experts noted that the charging port cap for the battery is flimsy and difficult to close. This could allow grit or water into the battery case.
  • Some testers thought the hidden key location was inconvenient. The location blocks you from tightening the handlebar stem with a standard multitool.
  • The bike will not turn on if the Bosch Kiox display is powered down or breaks off. You'll have a long ride back to the car if the system breaks on the trail.

Bottom line

The Orbea Wild FS is an impressive-looking bike with solid performance on most types of trails. Experts and users loved how it tackled tough climbs and bombed down the descents. The bike is geared toward the intermediate or advanced cyclist, but beginners can enjoy it with confidence. At 50 pounds, this isn't the most agile mountain bike, but it's well-suited to rough and fast downhill trails. The Orbea Wild FS is a premium bike at a premium price. You can be confident that it can take you up and down almost any route you want to tackle.

Orbea Wild FS H10 Review

Brilliant uphill with a lively, supple ride, but a short front-centre reduces downhill confidence.

2020 Orbea Wild FS First Impressions

In a radical departure from the outgoing model, the 2020 Wild FS has been fully modernized with 29″ wheels, 160 mm travel front and rear, and powered by the latest Bosch CX Cruise motor. It’s clear that Orbea had it’s sights set on creating a well-rounded all-mountain machine rather than an all-out descender.

Tested: Orbea Wild FS M10

The Orbea Wild FS M10 is an aggressive eMTB from the Spanish manufacturer. While it came with some drawbacks, Wild FS performed very well for a heavy E-Bike.

Wild FS M10 E-Bike Review

The Orbea Wild M10 had plenty of surprises in store and proved to be an exciting bike to own. A 160mm travel 29er, it’s a bruiser of a bike that encouraged hard riding, with some wild moments along the way.
