Description

Start mapping out your next adventure.

Taking a detour away from the well-established Orca race collection, Orbea's new line of Avant bikes were designed to be the ultimate go-everywhere, do-anything road machines. The versatile new frame platform derives its name from the Pax Avant Pyrenean Challenge, which is a 191km gran fondo event honoring a peace agreement between the people of neighboring Pyrenean valleys. In order to efficiently handle this type of adventure, Orbea's engineers designed the Avant with a completely new geometry and a host of intuitive features that allow riders to fully customize the bike to their specific riding needs. Topping the list are fender and rack mounts, the ability to run up to 28mm tires, the option of choosing either rim or disc brakes, as well letting you cleanly run either electronic or mechanical shifting systems. The Avant M-LTD Complete stands in as the flagship model, accompanied by a carefully-selected build kit designed to handle your most demanding riding expeditions.

Starting with the Avant's geometry, Orbea's engineers leaned on a more upright position in comparison to the Orca. This is based on one of its redesigned stack-and-reach models, which, at its basic form, means that the seven frame sizes grow proportionately in both stack and reach as frame sizes grow. For reference, frame stack is the vertical length from the bottom bracket to the top of the head tube. Frame reach is defined as the horizontal length from the bottom bracket to the center of the head tube. This geometry serves to correctly fit riders of any stature, regardless of being male or female. The Avant's geometry model emphasizes closer reach/higher stack compared to the Orca, yielding a longer head tube and higher hand position, with the handlebars a bit closer to the saddle. This slightly upright positioning provides the optimal blend of comfort and speed for a variety of cyclists' body types.

For the frame's construction, Orbea employed its OMP (Orbea Monocoque Performance) layup. This involves molding one-piece structures so that each tube is connected to the next, with continuous carbon fibers running through each critical juncture. Because of this layup schedule, load forces are distributed over the entire frame structure, which provides the ideal blend of stiffness and overall compliance. Compared to the Orca's OMR (Orbea Monocoque Race) layup, the Avant's OMP relies on different carbon properties that keep the stiffness exceptionally high, yet it provides a more comfortable ride that's ideal for a variety of road and gravel conditions. However, the tube shapes borrow many of the Orca's same clean lines, wearing slightly aerodynamic profiles throughout that add speed into the frame's comfort and durability equation.

Leading off the frame's versatile features, the Avant is both rim- and disc-brake compatible. The M-LTD version is spec'd with SRAM's top-end Red 22 Hydraulic Road Disc setup, but the frame's design is also capable of handling traditional rim brake calipers. Mounting for the center bolt front caliper is standard, but the rear caliper has been cleanly tucked away from the wind, positioned under the chainstays using a dual-bolt design. And since rim-brake wheels are 130mm-spaced at the rear hub, Orbea includes 2.5mm inserts that bolt into the rear dropouts in order to reduce the frame's 135mm spacing — should you opt to run a rim-brake setup down the road. The Avant's cable routing is internal, and by swapping the cable stops and port covers, the move between mechanical and electronic shifting systems is made seamless. Orbea didn't stop there, as it added sleek threaded fender and rack mounts that, when not installed, remain hidden and out of the way.

For the build of the Avant M-LTD, Orbea complemented the carbon frame's PFBB86 with a full SRAM Red 22 groupset. As noted, the kit comes stock with the powerful Red 22 Hydraulic Road Disc brakes, using HSX 160mm rotors. A Red compact 50/34t crankset, mated to an XG 11-28t cassette, provides a large range of gears. This makes the Avant fully-equipped for both hilly and flat terrain. Cockpit duties are handled by FSA's K-Force stem and bar, with an FSA 1-1/8 to 1-1/2in integrated headset keeping things running smoothly up front. The saddle is Selle Italia's SL Flow, bolted atop an FSA SL-K seatpost. In the wheel department, Orbea included Zipp's proven 303 Firecrests wrapped in 25mm Vittoria Diamante Pros.

The Orbea Avant M-LTD Complete Bike is available in seven sizes from 49 to 60cm and in the colors Carbon/red, Carbon/pink, and Carbon/blue.
