Custom paint, 27.5+ and e-bikes from Orbea

Originating in the Basque region of Spain, Orbea has a long history of cycling – 175 years to be exact, and the breadth of its range rests on years of development and innovation in many disciplines of cycling. At Eurobike 2015 Orbea unveiled new mountain bike models, updated road bike options and an e-bike for the large commuter cycling market. 

New to Orbea’s range of mountain bikes are the Occam and the Loki. The Occam comes in two versions; the 27.5 all mountain AM, and the 29er TR trail bike. The Orbea Loki is named for the shape-shifting Norse god, which gives a clue to it’s nature – running 27.5 plus it can also take 29er wheels, and Orbea says it’s ideal for new mountain bikers looking for a stable, fun, robust ride.

Another noteworthy development for 2016 is the option to fully customise the paint work on the Orca road bike range, surprisingly for no additional cost. At the other end of the cycling scale, the Katu e-bike is a steed designed to work well in the urban environment, with plenty of storage and a low centre of gravity.
