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.

Features:

  • Avant Hydro, hydroformed triple butted aluminum frameset
  • Shimano Tiagra 10-speed drivetrain
  • The Orbea EC/DC or Electronic Circuit/Direct Cable system is compatible with electronic or mechanical shifting
  • DCR (Direct Cable Routing) protects the cables, reduces friction and enhances durability
  • Oversized tapered headtube (1-⅛ - 1.5”) for stiffness and steering precision
  • Hand painted with low-VOC, water based paints
  • Orbea Lifetime Warranty

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.

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.

Will this fit a 28 tire? Thanks
