The Orbea Loki 27+ H-LTD is all about fun with a hydroformed alloy frame built around the new 27+ wheel size. These wheels run 27.5 rims shod with 3-inch wide tires to add traction and stability to your ride. Even though the wheelset’s outer-dimension is very similar to a 29-inch wheel, the Loki frame is able to sport a lower standover height than most 29ers. Built with short chainstays and a dramatically curved toptube the Loki provides ample maneuverability and responsive ride quality. The H-LTD version gets a Fox 34 Float fork and Shimano’s high-end XT drivetrain and choice Race Face parts including a dropper-post.
The next big thing in mountain biking are the fat tires found on the Orbea Loki 27+ H-LTD hardtail. 27+ refers to a wider 27.5 (AKA 650b) rim mounted with 3-inch knobbies; with greater traction, more inherent shock-absorption and similar rolling-resistance to current tire choices, the 27+ platform is capable of putting more fun into your time on the trail. Orbea designs the Loki to take full advantage of this fun factor with a hydroformed-aluminum frame built around a compact geometry and plenty of room for the new fatter tires. As the outer dimension of a 27+ wheel is very similar to a 29er, you get a bike that rolls fast and maintains speed well in addition to the increased traction, greater stability and inherent suspension that a 3-inch tire provides. Knowing that riders at all levels will appreciate these benefits, Orbea stocks the Loki H-LTD with the experienced trail rider in mind. A beefier Fox 34 Float fork and new XT 1×11 drivetrain come standard alongside a Race Face dropper-post and lighter-weight Race Face cockpit parts. The sweet Maxxis Chronicle tires and 40c-wide Sun Ringle Duroc rims are both tubeless ready to further amplify the exceptional traction and flat-protection that 27+ provides. For those seeking a great new trail bike, Orbea wants you to take a serious look at the their fun-packed Loki 27+ H-LTD hardtail.
The Orbea Loki 27+ H-LTD comes in four sizes with Small, Medium, Large and X-Large. It is available in four colors: Black-Orange (Satin-Gloss), Blue-Black (Gloss-Satin), Black-Purple (Gloss), and Anthracite Green (Satin-Gloss).
