2017 Orbea Avant
Orbea created the Avant for the rider whose cycling experiences go far beyond the summer race course. A bike that reduces fatigue and is designed to go the distance is perfect for the biggest challenges – Gran fondos, dirt road epics and marathon road events.
Flexibility and utility have been the undercurrents for its development - mechanical or electronic shifting, rim brakes or disc calipers, from one hub width to the next. The Avant is perfect for everything from spring racing on rough roads and cobbles, to all day epics where reduced rider fatigue is paramount.
The Avant's Endurance Geometry is a result of Orbea's years of research and experience into the ergonomics of long distance riding. Unlike classic racing geometry that is focused on aerodynamics and short distance acceleration, endurance ergonomics are optimised to reduce fatigue and enhance stability in order to enable riders to ride for longer or over rougher terrain with ease.
The distance between axles is longer, which means the bike is stable, easy to handle and has very good vibration absorption for increased comfort. A higher stack (handlebar position) and shorter reach allow for a relaxed position, which again reduces riding fatigue after a long ride.
Orbea already know that Avant riders are strong cyclists – yes they can already ride fast. But they also want a more efficient position on the Avant to cover long distances and all types of terrain. Avant riders create their own Spring Classics all year on every type of route!
