You have a certain style, and you know what fits it. Combine your style in a new way with the Orbea Carpe. These bikes are lightweight, versatile, and comfortable. There is a beauty when you feel the handlebars, the smoothness of the gears changing, or the harmony of its quality components. You'll enjoy your city and its streets even more while moving on two wheels, feeling unstoppable. These are the bikes that give you the freedom you've been waiting for. Hop on and enjoy. At the core of the Carpe is a lightweight and durable 6000-series aluminum frame. This is constructed with specifically shaped tubes that result in a smooth ride, as well as make the bike more comfortable to shoulder, in case stairs are a part of your commute. Add a Shimano drivetrain for reliable shifting and a chainguard to help keep clothing clean. Disc brakes dish out loads of stopping power in any weather, and the frame's internal cable routing protects the cables and keeps them out of the way. A set of sturdy wheels come in the form of Orbea Airline Corsa's, while 38c Kenda tires offer built-in flat protection and add visibility with a reflective stripe. The Carpe's got everything you need to kick your commuting into gear and fits in perfectly with your style.
You knew when you planned the ride it would be a long day - a route stacked with grinding climbs and twisting descents, terrible roads with a good amount of who-knows-what-else thrown in. These rides aren't most people's idea of fun, but they sure are memorable, monumental, challenging. It’s why you keep going. You have another coffee and pull on your shoe covers to hold the weather at bay, it's going to clear out and warm up in a few hours...maybe. Grab your Avant and do a quick check before rolling into the morning mist. No other machine could better help you endure the hours of rough, exhausting conditions ahead. It's going to be a long day - and you relish it. The Avant frame utilizes Endurance Geometry, born from years of analyzing how ergonomics can help you ride further. Unlike a racing geometry that is focused on aerodynamics, endurance ergonomics result in a bike that is easier to ride and reduces fatigue. Handling is precise and intuitive. Angles and dimensions are considered carefully across a range of sizes to maximize rider comfort. And more comfort means longer rides. In order to increase pedaling efficiency, the headtube, downtube, and chainstays of the Avant are shaped to resist twisting and transmit power to the rear wheel. There is no doubt about it, large cross-sections and resistance to flex in the bottom of the frame translate directly to more watts on the road and a sensation that power transfer is instantaneous. The Avant fork uses a shallower, rounded-blade profile and longer fork legs to offer the best combination of elasticity, tire clearance, and torsional stiffness. The increased axle-to-crown height is offset by a shorter headtube to maintain stack measurements and improve aesthetics. Internal cable routing in the frame protects the cables from the elements and results in a cleaner look. The carefully chosen quality components ensure you keep rolling hour after hour. - Hydroformed triple-butted aluminum frame, carbon fork - Shimano 105 drivetrain - Shimano RS100 wheels
