The 2019 Orbea Gain M20i e-road bike looks just like a standard road bike, with svelte lines that neatly hide the bike’s controller and battery. Once out on the road, however, it’s difference makes itself both known (feelings of superhero climbing ability come to mind) and unknown (drag-free motor, quiet operation). Truly, the 2019 Orbea Gain M20i e-road bike is the enhancement needed to open up road cycling to a broader audience.
Orbea claims that the Gain e-bike is designed to enhance the ride, not dominate it. They achieve this through slick use of the Ebikemotion X35 drive motor. This uses a hub-based motor that offers 40 Nm torque and 250 W power, and offers drag-free operation above the 20 mph assist limit. Assist levels are controlled by what Orbea calls the iWoc ONE controller, a single LED-backlit button which is embedded in the top tube. From here, riders can select between three levels of assist, and see where their battery life is mid-ride.
The 2019 Orbea Gain M20i pedal assist all-road bike starts with the Gain carbon frame and fork, as well as the Ebikemotion X35 drive motor. This is accompanied by a Shimano Ultegra Di2 R8070 drivetrain, a Mavic Aksium Race wheelset, Mavic Yksion Pro 700 x 28c tires, and a FSA cockpit.
Size large typically fits riders 5’10” – 6′
