Orbea began producing road bikes in Spain in 1930 after originally producing guns and rifles. The Orbea road bike pedigree was cemented early on, competing in the Tour De France in 1934. Over the years Orbea have used their industry knowledge to hone their road bike range into the collection it is today. Catering for riders wanting race bikes as well as endurance bikes, Orbea road bikes all use cutting edge geometry, materials and designs to create comfortable, high performance rides. Their endurance or sportive orientated bike is the Avant. The Orbea Avant road bike collection is centered around an Alloy frame with a carbon fork and a Shimano groupset, offering performance and reliability at a budget-friendly price point. The race bikes come in the form of the Orca and Orca Aero which use a full carbon frame and fork, and performance orientated components from Shimano and Sram. These Orbea carbon road bike offerings all use integrated seat clamps and fully internally routed cabling to create an ultra clean look that also goes towards improving aerodynamics.
