Gravel, mud, the cyclocross course, or a quick training ride on the pavement, the Orbea Terra can handle it all. Orbea responded to the demand for gravel racing, all-road bikes by launching the all new Orbea Terra in 2017. Able to accommodate larger tires, give more frame and fork clearance, and offer a comfortable geometry, the Terra will carry you smoothly over the roughest surface conditions. The Orbea Terra will be the busiest bike in your arsenal.
Aiding in the Orbea Terra’s versatility is its carefully designed geometry. It utilizes a longer wheelbase for increased comfort, longer chainstays for a more compliant backend, a lower bottom bracket for more stability when descending, and a higher stack height with a shorter reach for more comfort and stability when riding over rough surfaces. This geometry is comfortable enough for all-day epics while still snappy enough for the cyclocross course.
Using a Monocoque Performance carbon frame and fork, this bike was specifically built for compliance and durability under rough road conditions, while still remaining lightweight and efficient for speed and acceleration. The frame and fork were designed with small, strategic sections responsible for absorbing vibrations. This special lay-up at the head tube, seat tube/top tube joint, above the rear dropouts and at the fork dropouts, was specifically designed to smooth out the roughness for the road for a more controlled ride that is easier on your muscles over time.
The Orbea Terra is available in five sizes, X-Small – X-Large. It is also available in five, eye-catching colorways: Green-Black (Gloss), Black (Satin-Gloss), Blue-Red (Gloss), Grey-Blue (Gloss), and Anthracite-Yellow (Satin).
