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
There are plenty of great bikes that offer flexibility, a relaxed, neutral position and mellow handling. Orca is not one of them – Orca is designed for the rider who has already ridden 6000kms in February and can somehow sustain 500 watts in the middle of winter. The guy whose legs look like they are chiseled directly from the local mountains, the guy you have NEVER beaten, and is always ready to make the pace. Orca is for professionals, hardmen, hardwomen and dedicated weirdos that have never even consider quitting early. Orca is for riders who spend so much time talking about watts and training that you wouldn’t dream of inviting them to your party, and they wouldn’t come anyway because it’s past their bedtime. Orca isn’t for everyone – Do you want to be fast? - Orca OME carbon frame and fork - Fulcrum Racing wheelset - 11-speed Shimano 105 components
Orbea designed the Gain to boost your riding experience into high gear while still managing to blend in with the crowd. Its e-bike system is modern, integrated, and sleek. Gain embraces your sweat and hard work and works in unison with your efforts to tick off the miles. Distractions have been minimized so it's just you, your bike, and the hours ahead. The heart of the Gain is the pedal-assist rear hub motor, which monitors your pedaling input and adjusts power accordingly. This sophisticated drive system provides smooth and reliable assistance at levels designed to enhance your ride, not dominate it. And since the motor is at the hub, you’ll experience drag-free pedaling when Gain is not providing a push. Gain’s control center is the iWoc ONE—a simple, attractive, and discreet button integrated into the top tube. It allows you to power the system on or off, check motor assist levels, and view the remaining battery charge. The button's colored LED lighting puts all the information you need right at your fingertips. Recharging the system is a breeze—the CAN (Controller Area Network) port on the downtube provides a single interface for charging, system diagnosis, or attaching an external backup battery. The battery is typically one of the most noticeable components of an e-bike system, so Orbea took every step to find the lightest, smallest, and most discreet system available. The idea is to provide you with enough battery power, but not more. This eliminates the need for a bulky, high-output battery that needs to be removed from the bike. Orbea calls this concept "Enough Energy", and it's at the core of the Gain's design. The result is an exceptionally lightweight, sporty, and rideable bike—a machine that heeds the call of the open road.
