2018 Orbea Terra OMP
Whether you are looking to discover new routes away from automobile interference, or want to have a durable bike for winter training, the versatility of the Orbea Terra will soon make it the only bike you really need, no matter the time of year or road conditions.
Orbea have a long history of providing top quality bikes with a soul. And the Terra is a great example of exactly that. The carbon frame has been given a special lay-up which they call a Dynamic Structure to keep the lateral stiffness at a maximum while making sure the ride quality remains comfortable and absorbing the rougher sections of gravel. This is a bike that begs for all day adventures in the woods because it offers a level of comfort that will prevent you from feeling all bone rattled by the end of the day. The geometry has been tweaked to give you a slightly more upright position than you would normally take on a road bike, while the tubes have been lovingly shaped and detailed to resist any torsional flex. That along with the quick handling make the Terra a great option for snappy cross races and all-day adventures.
Whatever course you choose to tackle, you will love the versatility of the Terra. The frame and fork have been designed to accommodate road tires up to 40mm wide with loads of room to spare, which makes it ideal not only for weekend gravel grinds or cross mud fests, but also the daily commute to work. Attachments for mud guards add to the commuting practicality, while luggage rack mounts also kick the Terra up to bikepacking territory. And with the longer wheelbase, you will feel comfortable on extended gravel descents when control and stability will be essential. Even if you aren’t looking for that one bike that will do everything, you will soon find that the Terra is a bike that with little more than a change of tires can go from Saturday cross races to Sunday mixed surface long rides to Monday morning commute.
The internal cable routing keeps the frame looking sleek whether you are going full electric or mechanical. The brakes are flat mount disc, and the 12mm through axles will ensure a solid connection between the bike and wheels at all times no matter how rugged the territory. Orbea offer the Terra in five frame colors and you also have the option of choosing the My-O custom paint option. Five bike sizes ranging from XS to XL means that there is a frame size for a wide range of rider heights. When you are looking to buy the sort of bike that you can count on snappy road bike performance while being tough enough to spend a day on unpaved roads in the mountains, the Orbea Terra will be a great way to go.
