One of the oldest bike brands in the world with its origins traceable as far back as 1840 (where it manufactured firearms), Orbea began manufacturing bicycles in 1930. The Basque brand has since become one of the most famous marques in cycling, today expertly manufacturing a range of electric bikes to accompany its racing pedigree.
Orbea’s Gain urban electric bike offers such an incredible integration of internal battery and hub motor, you could be riding an ordinary bike. With the brand’s ‘Enough Energy’ concept delivering just enough power to give the rider all the assistance that they need, the battery is hidden completely inside the frame.
No-one wants an overcomplicated ride experience, which is why Orbea uses the incredibly compact Ebikemotion X35 pedal assist system complete with single-press button mode indicator and functionality. Meanwhile, the Optima urban e-bike uses the same integrated system, but with an easy-to-use iWoc toggle remote control.
Using the C.A.N. (Controller Area Network) interface, Orbea’s electric bike hub and motor systems are easily chargeable and serviceable using a single port.
Orbea’s Gain and Optima e-bikes can be paired to a smartphone app (compatible with both iOS and Android devices) that can track your activity, monitor battery life and even upload your ride among a host of other functions to help you get more out of your e-bike ride.
