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.

Orbea WILD FS M-LTD in Review

For 2020, the Orbea WILD FS has been redesigned from scratch and no longer resembles its predecessor in any way. That’s no bad thing!
