2019 Orbea Terra
The Orbea Terra is a bike that blurs categories, because it’s just so very good in a huge range of riding conditions: endurance road riding, “gravel” or all-road riding, cyclocross racing, adventure or commuting – it does them all…brilliantly!
Designed to be the ultimate all-road and all-round high performance bike, the Terra may just become the most ridden bike in your stable. It has a geometry that offers precise handling and all-day comfort over all surfaces. A little more relaxed than a pure race bike, with frame angles that deliver outstanding stability and control, whether hitting typical tarmac roads, dirt tracks or rough back lanes.
New for 2019 – the Terra is now also available in a premium hydro-formed aluminium framed version that shares many of the same all-road features as its full carbon stablemate, such as 40mm tyre clearance, all-road geometry and shock absorbing carbon fork.
Tube stiffness is built into the power transfer areas using high modulus OMP carbon fibres to deliver a highly responsive ride, while huge tyre clearance and powerful hydraulic disc brakes extend its range well beyond fast road riding to agile and engaging dirt track adventures, or lighter off road riding – including cyclocross racing.
The Orbea Terra also has highly discrete eyelets (and an optional/removable seat stay bridge) for fitting full mudguards, making it ideal as a fast commuter or winter training bike.
The Terra is also building an outstanding reputation for long distance adventure racing – its high performance ride and multi-terrain capability make it ideal for trans-continental races, where the in-built comfort and stable handing of the Terra are equally as important as sheer speed.
It’s true to say that the Terra is rapidly becoming a firm staff favourite – it is just so good at pretty much everything! It’s fast, engaging, light weight, tough, super versatile, and handles superbly. And means that the question “where shall we go today?” just got a much wider range of answers. As Orbea would say, just get out and explore:
Available in a range of standard colourways, from stealth black to full-on fluro, Orbea’s MyO custom paint system offers a massive number of other frame colour combinations – at no extra cost for all Terras. The MyO programme also offers a limited number of component options, but we can also offer full bespoke builds using components of your choice.
MyO Custom Colours
For years the flexibility of Orbea’s MyO programme has allowed riders to personalize their bikes to an extent that is unique in the industry. Now Orbea have taken it one step further by giving you the option of a fully custom coloured Terra Carbon frameset that is painted and assembled entirely at their headquarters in Mallabia – in the heart of the Basque Country.
Orbea’s in-house manufacturing capabilities and know-how allow them to pay meticulous attention to every step of the MyO process so all you have to do is choose the colours, select your component options and, if you would like to, add your name to the top tube. Designing your dream bike incurs no additional cost for any Terra Carbon model (not available with Terra Hydro).
The MyO custom painting system is pretty straightforward, and we can help guide you through the MyO process. The MyO programme also offers a limited number of component options, but for full bespoke builds the Terra is available as a frameset (with MyO paint, free of charge) for full custom specification here at Epic Cycles.
