2017 Orbea Avant H50 Bike
Not everyone wants to be a racer, or own a racing bike. But there are people who are just as passionate about the sport. People who ride every chance they get: Before work, after work, to work, on the weekend- any time they can. They ride for the thrill, for pleasure, to alleviate stress. But that doesn’t mean they don’t care about what bike they ride. These passionate riders take bike choice seriously. They want a bike that will let them put in the miles, and stay injury free. A bike that's efficient and doesn’t waste movement. A bike that looks good. It seems like a tall order, but the Avant delivers.
Every single tube of the Avant has been designed for a purpose, to be light, to be strong, to aid comfort. Each tube is made of triple hydroformed triple butted aluminum. It is a light material which is easy to work with, as well as being budget friendly. To reduce weight Orbea thins the walls where the support isn’t needed and keeps thickness in the key areas like joints.This makes for a lightweight, durable bike that is built for endurance. Also the geometry has been altered to make for a more comfortable endurance ride.
Orbea endeavors to have ultimate power transfer to the pedals with no wasted movement. To achieve this, they lengthened the head tube,giving a higher hand position. This lets the rider ride upright. A much more comfortable position, one that can be maintained for hours.
The Avant is a bike that is made to make riding a pleasure, one that can last for years. If that is what you are looking for in a bike, look no further.
