2019 Orbea Gain D21 Bike
If you are not new to the gravel game, you may have noticed that when you bought your first gravel bike, your dreams of long gravel grinds ended up being out of reach if only because it takes so much longer to cover the territory you may have envisaged doing. That’s where an Orbea Gain All Road will come in super handy.
With the discreet ebikemotion X35 the rear hub motor, the Gain All Road will help you pump out enough speed to get you where you are going faster, without compromising your workout along the way. That’s to say, you will still be working, burning those calories and upping your Strava Suffer Score, but you will be going further and getting there faster than you normally would. This will open up all sorts of opportunities that you might not have the time or energy to make use of. Would you love to go that extra bit further normally, but have a 15 or 20 minute climb home that forces you to cut rides shorter to save energy? Well, here is a bike that can give you the confidence to take that new road without worrying about killing yourself before your essential climb home. Not only does the Gain All Road look like a normal bike, it rides like a normal bike once you crest the 25km/h or 15.5 m/h point where the motor cuts off. So where you are on a group ride with your gravel buddies, rolling at 42 or 43km/h, you won’t feel any drag from the hub motor because the PAS Sensor uses 20 magnets embedded in the cassette lockring to detect how much power to put out or to disengage completely. You won’t have to worry about motor drag when you are upping the pace. The X35 hub will put out enough power to go 100km or 1500m of climbing at 25km/h.
The iWoc system allows you to control the level of motorized assistance you get from the Mode button on the top tube, starting with none, moving into Eco, and then Boost. And the iWoc system pairs with an app where you can customize just what amount of push you want from each setting. The geometry reflects this expectation of wanting to increase your time in the saddle, and sticks with a pretty relaxed, endurance oriented reach and stack. But it will still be able to withstand any out of the saddle climbing, and with the hydraulic disc brakes, be able to keep you in complete control for those fast gravelly descents that will open up to you. If you do like your rides to stretch for hours, an extra battery is available to help stave off any range anxiety you might have. Fully integrated cables will keep the look slick and clean. Tire clearance will mean that you can easily run 40mm gravel oriented tires, and the bikes comes spec’d with Schwalbe G-One Allround tires, which have become the gold standard for gravel bikes.
The Orbea Gain All Road frame is made from a durable, lightweight aluminum and comes ready with mounts for mud guards and bike racks, making it just about the most versatile road and gravel bike on the market. Use if for your commute to work during the week, and then take it out for your weekend adventures. Equally adept and comfortable on the road as well as gravel, the Orbea Gain All Road comes in two complete builds that are designed to help you make the most of your time in the saddle.
