2017 Orbea Avant M40-F

Epic Edition:  £1300  (£1489 RRP)

Welcome to the magic of carbon. The M40-F offers Orbea’s entry point to the world of quality carbon road bikes, but not one that eschews performance in the name of practicality or value. With a Shimano Tiagra drivetrain featuring an 11-32 wide-range cassette, you can be sure that no hill will prove itself too steep or too long – and the flat handlebar option of the M40-F adds versatility to the range for those riders who prefer a more upright position with a relaxed wrist angle.

Orbea designed the Avant for the rider whose cycling experiences go far beyond the summer race course. A bike fit that reduces fatigue and is designed to go the distance is perfect for the biggest challenges – Gran fondos, dirt road epics and marathon events – as well as the everyday challenge of UK roads. Let the Avant M40 show you what real bikes are made of.

Choice of four highest quality colour finishes.

  • The Orbea Avant M40-F features an OME Monocoque Carbon framset, flat handlebars, and a Shimano Tiagra 20-speed groupset.
  • In our exclusive Epic Edition the standard Shimano R-501 wheels have been upgraded to Mavic Aksium Elite wheels (worth £220).

Product Description

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!

For the new model year we are again offering our renowned Special Edition models across the Orbea range that feature superb upgraded wheels at minimal cost, plus options in all models for a full custom build. We also have extensive stocks of the standard specification bikes at everyday low prices - please contact us for up to date prices on these models.
