2020 Orbea Katu-E


The Orbea Katu-E is a super-cool urban e-bike that we love so much we run one as our “shop bike” for nipping round the hilly streets of Ludlow.  Easy to steer around narrow streets, with motors that give you a good level of pick up from lights and junctions to keep you ahead of traffic, the Katu is fun and practical in equal measure – with ultra stable luggage carrying capability, powerful on-board lights, and strong effective mudguards.

Practicality, style, environmental friendliness and urban coexistence are the main pillars of the new Orbea Katu-E. Enjoy discovering everything about the Katu, from the general concept to how Orbea have taken care of every last detail.

The 20 inch wheels give planted but nimble handling, even at low speed, while the geometry of the bike means you get a “full sized” bike ride feel.  Practical features include the robust (removable) aluminium front basket that is bolted to the head tube rather than turning with the wheel, making for stable load carrying, tough tyres with reflective side walls, powerful disc brakes and long battery ranges.

One size – Three Colours

The Katu-E has been cleverly designed so that a single size covers all heights with bags of adaptability to adapt the riding position to suit any rider.

Available for 2020 in a single build, using the components that have proved by far the most popular over the past three seasons, and in the three most popular colour options.
