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. Producing bicycles since the 1930’s and hailing from one of cycling’s most hallowed regions, Orbea is no stranger to the fast progression of road cycling technology and product trends. When we ponder today’s road movement, it’s clear that a popularity of “gravel” riding and racing has flowered, bringing about the demand for carbon drop-bar bikes with more overall versatility. The Avant is the all-road brainchild of Orbea’s seventy plus years of using pure passion to produce bicycles that meet the wants and needs of the modern cyclist.
As elite racers make up a small fraction of the road cyclists, the Avant delivers a formidable blend of comfort, endurance, and versatility for those who put a value on distance over speed. Nevertheless, the Avant should never be counted out on race day. Using Orbea’s OMP (Orbea Monocoque Performance) carbon fiber construction, the Avant frame features the same medium-modulus carbon fiber as Orbea’s mid-level Orcas. The OMP carbon is slightly thicker than Orbea’s top tier OMR (Orbea Monocoque Race) carbon which is used on the highest Orca race bikes, enabling a much more reasonable cost-to-weight ratio.
Knowing those who ultimately choose the Avant are undoubtedly strong cyclists who seek a more efficient position on the bike for journeying over long distances and varying terrain, it factors 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. The seat stays and seat tube have been shaped specifically to enhance vertical stiffness for less stress on the body, while the higher stack, shorter reach, broader wheelbase, and longer chainstays increase stability and decrease vibration, minimizing the amount of energy put into handling the horse, and leaving more energy to gut out the late miles.
Fully aware of the plethora of varying terrain, weather conditions, and practicalities the adventurist is likely to encounter, the Avant M30 Disc is all about providing choices for compliance. Caliper brakes or disc brakes? The choice is yours. The Avant M30 Disc is distinctive in that it’s compatible with traditional caliper rim brakes as well as disc brakes, and the ability to make the transition is effortless. The frame is designed so that the disc brake mounting hardware can be removed, destroying all evidence of any disc use. Through removable dropout chips, the rear hub spacing is compatible with both 135mm and 130mm so that nearly any wheelset can be used on the Avant. The Avant M30 Disc model includes the Shimano 105 level R785 Hydraulic Disc brake system, for superior braking power and confidence in all weather conditions.
With a drivetrain dominated by the Shimano 105 5800 11 speed group, the Avant M30 Disc captures the perfect combination of value and performance. As the Shimano 105 5800 group is a mechanical system, should you ever want to make the leap to a Di2 setup, the Avant frame features an internal routing system that’s compatible with both traditional cables or the more modern, electronic wiring systems, including a hidden seatpost-mounted battery. Venturing deeper into uncharted endurance-road bike territory, discreet fender and rack mounts allow the Avant to become its alter ego commuter/touring rig. Once the work week has ended, the concealed mounting bosses are sure to go unnoticed at the weekend’s gran fondo. As more and more roadies are moving away from the 23c tire and fancying wider tire sizes, the Avant is designed to accommodate up to 28mm tires. The wider tire size is ideal for hard-pack dirt exploration, and also significantly increases comfort during long days in the saddle.
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.
