We are back again with Pinkbike for another epic season of showcasing hidden talents we found throughout the globe! We are excited to introduce the world to a whole new wave of riders who are progressing the sport of mountain biking.
Torridon (Scotland) is a name synonymous with great riding with hospitality to match. Here, the mountains reach to over 1000m in height and loom over deep sea lochs that are just as deep.
Cuando compites en la élite, la gloria está reservada solo para los mejores. Actualmente, la exigencia en las Enduro World Series es mayúscula; cada pedalada, cada trazada, cada una de las pequeñas decisiones que toma el rider, determina si toca el cielo o muerde el polvo. Esta eterna búsqueda por ser el número uno persigue a Flo, Edgar, Vid, Martin… pero también al resto de riders. “There can only be one first” narra esa lucha constante contra ti mismo por llegar a lo más alto.
Today we have reached that goal by remaining true to our core values and corporate identity, thanks to the joint efforts of our whole organization, remaining united in pursuit of a clear, exciting, challenging vision.
We see gravel as a freedom of spirit, a tool for exploring and arriving to places less traveled. Gravel opens up adventures, both near and far, and offers a better connection with the environment and the people in it than other type of vehicles.
At Orbea, every bike we make is unique. We believe that each rider brings their individuality to the design process, making it a truly unique and one-of-a-kind piece.
Simón chooses the bike. He is one of many employees at Orbea who is committed to biking as an element of mobility; as a tool for traveling to and from work; and as a way of life.
What better way to close out the 2022 season than from the top of the podium? That’s exactly what the OET did after last race of the season, where the team was awarded first place in the general team category. This joint success was the result of hard work, group unity and pure talent on the Wild FS. An ultimate party in Finale Ligure!
From the hill of her native Chile to the Olympus of the EWS-E, Flo’s path has been long and not without a few bumps and obstacles. Their ultimate success of winning the EWS-E is the result of hard work, tenacity and unwavering belief in himself.
Another year done at Sea Otter Europe, one of the largest European events in our industry.
Today, cycling is theirs. It’s for Lisa, Laura, Sandra, Marta, Kathrin, Maria and all those who pedaled for their sport and women’s involvement in it. In “C’est Le Tour,” the Ceratizit WNT Pro Cycling athletes give women’s cycling a voice through their own experience, showing the way for future generations.
For those who have only experienced mechanical shifting and ergonomics, the new Shimano 105 Di2 represents a transformative road cycling experience. And now, this change can now be enjoyed on two of our most emblematic road models: Orca and Orca Aero.
Top rider Martin Maes sealed the Enduro World Series in a big way and reach glory in Loudenvielle. The Orbea FOX Enduro Team rider finished in second place at the final EWS race, working his way up to the podium during an incredibly demanding race with very challenging conditions.
At Orbea we are obsessed with this sensation, we are constantly searching for that precise moment when the lighting and subject come together. We want to find our Perfect Shot.
In road cycling, effort, perseverance and dedication are the only way to the top, but in this era of data and technology many cyclists are focussing on watts and are training smarter, not harder.
En Orbea somos conscientes de la responsabilidad que conlleva vivir en el mundo actual; no solo hacemos bicis, sino que a través de ellas perseguimos vivir en una sociedad más justa.
The leading star in this round was Edgar Carballo who, with the help of his Wild FS, climbed to the top of the podium in the highest international e-Enduro competition. Congratulations, Edy!
Orbea partners with COMBA (Colorado Mountain Bike Association) and BMA (Boulder Mountain Bike Association) to build an impressive new trail.
