Ohhh we have been waiting a long time for this. Today marks the official launch of the new Orbea Terra gravel/cyclocross/adventure/awesome bike, and we are pretty keen to show you what it’s about.
First off some important stuff – we aren’t fans of Fulcrum wheels here in the workshop so for a limited time only ANY Terra purchased through us will have the wheels swapped to a tubeless-ready set of Kinesis CX wheels FOR FREE (and set up tubeless while we are at it). We have a large M31 available in store for sizing and round the block testing, with a medium M21 available for off-road real demo testing within around two weeks. See their product pages for details. 0% Finance available, including the wheel offer. Now onto the finer points..
Orbea have taken everything they have learned manufacturing exceptionally high quality carbon road and mountain bike frames then ported it over to one of our favorite riding genres, gravel/cx adventure whatever you want to call it. We say it’s road riding with less chance of being hit by a car, or mountain biking on a sketchy bike! Either way it’s a hell of a lot of fun, and a great way to get fit.
All Terras feature the same frame and fork built using their ‘OMP’ level carbon, which is their mid way balance between cost and weight. This lets them bring in full bikes starting from £2399, backed up with a full lifetime warranty. We weighed our ‘Large’ M31 bike pictured below at 19lb, and that’s for the base version right from the box.
There are five versions and five stock colour options along with MyO, letting you customise your paint scheme to exactly how you see fit. We have been giving it a little test on the top spec M20i (the ‘i’ stands for Di2!) @ £3999, and yes, it’s a good thing we aren’t bike designers..
The range sits like this. All models have full hydraulic disc brakes:
- Orbea Terra M30-D – £2399 – Shimano 2×11 105
- Orbea Terra M31-D – £2399 – Roughly the same finishing kit but with SRAM Rival 1×11
- Orbea Terra M20-D – £2799 – Upgraded finishing kit and 2×11 Shimano Ultegra
- Orbea Terra M21-D – £3099 – Same upgraded finishing kit and with SRAM Force 1×11
- Orbea Terra M21i-D £3999 – Same top spec finishing kit but this time with Ultegra Di2!
These are so hot off the press not even the journos have been able to test ride them fully yet, your best chance is to head in to see us and test one for yourself. Here is what we can find from the last 24 hours:
