Grand Tour in Basque style
The Orbea Avant also loses some weight for 2017 while maintaining its well-known, endurance focused ride. Designed for long, grueling rides over varied terrain, all bikes in the Avant line are intended to keep the rider poised and in control on even the longest days. Unlike the Orca, the Avant’s geometry puts the rider into a more upright and comfortable riding position. Orbea’s Dynamic Structure Stiffness concept remains, however, delivering performance that matches the added compliance. Many of the 2017 Avant models feature disc brakes, for increased braking control, while rim brakes remain for those not yet ready to make the jump to hydraulics. Orbea is also offering the Avant in both carbon and alloy versions, giving beginner and more serious riders, alike, the Avant’s great handling and performance for years of happy riding.
