Orbea Avant H40 2016

Challenge Accepted.

As most high-end bicycle manufactures outsource product engineering, Orbea demonstrates a rare paradigm of in-house engineering. By conducting all engineering within the walls of their Basque foundation, Orbea is able to relentlessly tweak until perfection is met. Depending on who you are, where you ride, and why you ride, when it comes to seeking out your next ride the word “perfection” will embody something different from one rider to the next. A 13 pound full carbon race machine with electronic shifting is not everyone’s idea of perfection. Knowing this, Orbea pursues every model as an individual, perfecting each to be one of the best in its class. As carbon fiber is seen as the elite frame material, the more affordable aluminum models rarely receive the intensive designing and marketing attention that their featherweight counterparts almost always do. Orbea was not about to settle for a mediocre aluminum road bike just because many others have done so.

As thoroughbred racers make up a small fraction of the road cyclists, the Avant H40 uses a hydroformed triple butted frame to blend durability, stiffness and low weight. Orbea has vigilantly selected the tubing and manipulated each tube to enhance overall strength, reduce flex, and eat up road vibration. Each tube diameter, shape, and wall thickness is intentional. The middle of the tubes are triple butted to thin the walls in areas away from the high stress of the joints and weld zones, trimming unnecessary weight while remaining sturdy. The result is a frame dedicated to those who put a value on riding for fitness and recreation versus riding for speed.

Knowing that those who ultimately choose the Avant Hydro are undoubtedly passionate cyclists who seek a more efficient position on the bike for a better riding experience, Orbea has factored in an ergonomic design for conserving energy and increasing comfort during the long haul. This by no means equates to a bike that lacks force, but one that will reduce stress on the body so that every ounce of power is devoted to the pedal stroke. Featuring a longer head tube, the Avant offers a higher hand position that also brings the handlebars in closer towards the saddle, offering a more upright body position for long lasting comfort and endurance.

The Avant H40 supplies no shortage of choices for compliance. With a drivetrain dominated by the Shimano Tiagra 10 speed group, the Avant H40 captures a reliable combination of quick and easy shifting, and healthy amount of gears to see you through weekend group rides. The Avant frame features an internal routing system that’s compatible with both traditional cables or the more modern, electronic wiring systems.

Orbea’s new sizing system is implemented into the Avant, putting a heavy emphasis on stack and reach, versus the much more common effective top tube measurement. Stack and reach are more truthful measurements as they define the spatial relationships of two important contact points between your body and the bike; the pedals and handlebars. Stack is the vertical distance from the center of the bottom bracket to the top of the headtube. Reach is the horizontal distance from the center of the bottom bracket to that same point at the top center of the headtube. Orbea’s logical sizing allows the Avant to accommodate a wider range of riders and aligns with a more linear size progression.

Orbea Avant review
I love my Orbea. Before purchasing I did some research on the company and support what they stand for and the quality of bikes they make. My Avant weighs 18lbs (without pedals). Rides smoothly. The geometry on the bikes makes it a very comfortable ride. The components are great. I really enjoy this bike and support anyone considering the purchase.

Lots of bike for the $; buzzy front end
At this sale price, it's a *really* nice ride. Amazing what they can do w/ alu now (admittedly my last AL bike was an early 90's C'dale crit bike, possibly among the harshest frames ever made). The Orbea is plush and smooth on the back end (I assume from swaged & bendy stays & long carbon post), but efficient enough at the BB for 'sport' riders. Frame geo feels neutral with low BB so you're "sitting in" it; corners well. Front end is remarkably stiff in contrast to rear; steering precision was nice but leads to my only complaint: the thick aero-ish carbon fork blades, tall alloy steerer & cheap bar transmit road buzz like crazy and after a first 2-hour ride on bad chip seal my hands were numb (even with a plush Mich. Pro4 28c tire at 85 psi on the front; wouldn't want to try it with the stock, skinny Kendas). This design/spec choice seems at odds with the "endurance" marketing. If this is your 'A' bike, definitely put some supple 28c tires on it and perhaps extra gel tape or even a carbon bar. Geometry: Short reach is noticeable; I am not flexible and don't like a lot of drop to the bars but flipped the stem on my 60cm frame (120mm stem) to get a bit more extension, and still could comfortably ride the (shallow) drops all day. Parts: Tiagra has slightly vague feel @ the lever but shifts just fine and the cranks are stiffer than my old 9sp Ultegra -- Shimano really do trickle-down the better new tech. I expected the no-name brakes to suck but they did OK --a little squishier than Ultegras, but got me down a twisty 9-mile descent alive (maybe with an assist from my upright torso -- not easy to get a flat back on this bike). Was pleased they at least have metal brake shoe cartridges unlike some generics. Brakes would be an eventual upgrade if this is your A bike and not just a winter trainer, as would lighter/wider tires. Saddles are subjective, but the Prologo is the first stock saddle I've ever considered keeping; works for me. Overall am impressed how much better entry-level bikes are than they used to be. For current price this is an amazingly good ride and blows Giant Contend away for value. W/lifetime frame warranty, rim brakes and a threaded Engl BB, I'd go for this over cheap carbon w. discs, press-fit, odd-sized thru axles and other unfortunate trends whose time will (I hope) pass. Just needs a quieter front end.

Good entry level bike
This is a nice entry level bike with semi upgraded component (Tiagra). Tiagra component can be annoying sometimes but for the money you pay , you get a solid bike.

A lot of bike for the money.
Really capable bike with good components. I put in 470 miles on it in 14 days with very little adjustments needed. Brakes more than adequate for stopping power. Tights shifters were great. Colour green got several complementary comments out on rides. Bike arrived with a scratch on the derailler - Jake the gear advisor was great to deal with when sorting it out.

Quality bike at a great price.
Great bike at a great price. The pre assembly had it out of the box and on the road in no time. Gearing was set perfectly as well as the brakes. Awesome job all around.

Really Good Value
I got back into cycling in March after a 15-year hiatus. I started with a mountain bike, then bought a traditionally styled road bike. I fell back in love with cycling and more specifically, long-distance cycling. I put 440 miles on that first road bike in the month of ownership. But . . . I couldn't get comfortable on it for the long haul and couldn't break the 50-mile mark. I sold it and used the money to buy the Avant H40. I love this bike. The ergos on this bike are perfect for what I wanted. I am 5'11 with a 34" inseam and 150 lbs and chose the 55cm size. The fit is great, the stock seat works, the Tiagra components are nice and work well together. The paint looks great; I like the black and grey. The bike was well packaged and took about 20 minutes to assemble and adjust. I've put 270 miles on it in the first week I've owned it with three of those rides being above 60 miles in length. I love it!

Downsides? I am not a fan of the bar tape used. It feels cheap. The bike I received was missing the tube hardware. That's it, only those two things.
Ride around Carter Lake north of Boulder, Colorado.
