Up to this point, I hadn’t really tested the Terra’s capabilities; it’s basically just a steady 900m uphill slog to here all the way from town. I hadn’t fully forgotten whatever equipment flaws I noticed earlier in the day, but at that point, they sure seemed less important. En el tercer vistazo te atreves con pequeñas trialeras y en el cuarto terminas cargándola al hombro porque te has venido arriba demasiado rápido y te has perdido en la montaña.

Price: US$4,000 / AU$5,300 / £3,200 / €3,700. Destaca una longitud entre ejes muy larga (1.043 mm), altura de pedalier de 285 mm en talla M y vainas de 430 mm en todas las tallas. They also go tubeless very easily, though you'll have to buy your own tubeless valves, rim tape and sealant.

The tires and wheels come tubeless ready on the Orbea Terra.

With a stiff and responsive carbon frameset, the Terra is one of the flightiest gravel and adventure bikes I've tested. La colocación de las fibras y los diferentes tipos usados logran que, sobre todo a nivel de tubo superior y tirantes, la absorción de pequeñas irregularidades sea sobresaliente. Thankfully, the Terra scores highly in the chops department and it’s all down to the way in which the bike feels both off- and on-road. De los 6 modelos de Terra, hay dos que vienen con plato único. That chassis rigidity carries through to the front end, too, making for a nicely cohesive and secure feel from tip to tail that eagerly responds to rider inputs. The OEM-style connections on the hydraulic lines detracts from what would otherwise be a pretty clean look, though. David has worked on the road.cc tech team since July 2012. Bottom-bracket drop is pegged at 70mm across the size range, too, for a good balance between stability and agility. I was still stuck in the clouds when the asphalt ended, 500m higher than where I started.

Recently, Orbea has jumped on the gravel movement that has been sweeping across the globe with the introduction of a new, do-it-all drop-bar bike called the Terra. Orbea has stepped into the ring with its Terra and produced a blisteringly fast and highly capable multi-terrain bike that is as fit for an adventure as it is for commuting and winter training with the addition of mudguards.

That said, I could easily see the Terra adorned with some bikepacking bags and put into service as a multi-day adventure ride, especially suiting the type of person who likes to get a shifty on and is more concerned with getting to B as fast as possible rather than taking in the views and churches.

As with all the Terra H bikes, it comes with Kenda Flintedge 40mm tyres and Shimano RS170 wheels, with finishing kit Orbea branded.

On paper, one might expect the Terra to be a lazy handler, and in some ways, it is. That bulbous protrusion up top provides a bonus hand position, too. That said, the Terra does meet the needs of the fastest gravel riders, and with a switch of tyres you would also have a superior on-road machine. The FSA SL-K stem and seatpost caused no complaints, and the Energy Compact handlebar is a nice shape with a compact reach and short drops. Schwalbe’s G-One Allround tires continue to be one of my favorites for mixed-terrain riding, being reasonably fast on asphalt but providing surprisingly good traction on dirt. Like CyclingTips? Tell us briefly about the cheaper options and the more expensive options. Sign in to manage your newsletter preferences. A stout frame may be a good starting point for going fast, but it’s the bike’s stable handling that really helps you exploit those capabilities when you hit the dirt. Thoroughly respectable that, and it's up there (or should that be down there?) It's specced with a SRAM Force 1 groupset, Fulcrum Racing 500 DB wheels with 40mm Schwalbe G-One Allround tyres, FSA SL-K stem and seatpost, Energy Compact handlebar and a Prologo Nago Evo Space Tirox saddle. Was there any toe-clip overlap with the front wheel?

De hecho, con Schwalbe que monta de serie, quedan hasta 5 mm de espacio lateral. Bottom bracket drops are CX-like, too, ranging from 70-65mm, depending on size. With only a handful of events in Europe to suit this type of bike, Orbea has built something that’s more about the fun of riding, and that’s fine by us.

It's not the most generous tyre clearance but it's more than adequate for what this bike is designed for. Flat-mount disc brakes and 12mm-diameter thru-axles are used at both ends, there’s a tapered steerer hidden inside the integrated head tube, and the internal cable routing can be configured for mechanical or electronic drivetrains — or even a dropper seatpost — via an array of swappable plastic ports. It’s a promise we stand behind: If you find a lower price on a bike elsewhere, we will sell it to you for 10% less. Orbea claims an 1,190g frame weight for the Terra and since its a bike built for toughness not lightness that’s a decent compromise weight wise. Por ejemplo las nuevas alforjas... BH rediseña la Ultralight Disc para conseguir una mayor integración de elementos y aerodinámica en su cuadro más ligero... Las colecciones de invierno de las marcas de ropa empiezan a salir a la luz. Already have an account with us? Going fast on the Orbea Terra is undoubtedly fun. It's a good looking bike, with smooth tube shapes flowing into each junction gracefully. It's a longer, slacker and lower stance than a cyclo-cross bike, with a long wheelbase ensuring that when you get up to speed on gravel tracks it is as calm and surefooted as a rigid road bike on relatively narrow tyres is ever going to be. De vez en cuando pasa, en la ‘glamurosa’ vida de un probador de bicis que sienta su culo sobre nuevos modelos bastante a menudo, hay ocasiones en las que dicho “culo” se siente más cómodo que en otras. The ride is undoubtedly fast with the geometry providing good stability at high speed and on bumpy tracks, but the ride is at the firm end of the scale. The clutched pulley cage on the SRAM Force 1 rear derailleur keeps the chain admirably secure on rough terrain, and also very quiet. Y eso es lo que hicimos con la Terra. Riders seeking an aggressive position will need to slam the stem, or possibly even swap the standard 6° angle for a -17°. La familia Orbea Terra está compuesta por 10 modelos y la posibilidad de adquirir el cuadro suelto desde 1.899 €.

Orbea Terra bikes on JensonUSA . SRAM's Force 11 speed groupset has a single ring chainset for simplified and reliable shifting, and the disc brakes put greater control at your fingertips when it's wet out. Su polivalencia de usuarios, su estabilidad, su confort y su multitud de montajes y opciones, la convierten en una opción para todos los que estáis buscando una bici con la que poder hacer un poco de todo, incluido CX en la temporada invernal, entrenos largos donde quieres ir cómodo y seguro o salidas a la montaña para devorar kilómetros de pista. Terra riders aren’t apt to get sufficiently rowdy to justify the extra width of a flared bend, and the straight drops of the Energy Compact bar felt more natural to me on long days. The main goal of this website is to provide step-by-step cycling related guides, reviews and how-to’s for different bike types. From that point, there’s a series of downhill dirt switchbacks that the Terra absolutely ate up.

The bike must be the same color and size, sold in the US and not include the use of a coupon. And although this bike came with a 1x groupset, the frame will accommodate a front mech if you prefer two chainrings.

There's clearance for up to 40mm tyres on 700C rims, but it hasn't been designed to accommodate 650B wheels which are proving popular at the moment. You might want to double check the maths for the 5.5% calculation - I thinks its 55% or so. First and last impressions are: it’s blooming’ fast!

En muchos momentos tienes que bajarte y cargar la bici al hombro. The Terra may not quite be the unicorn that Orbea makes it out to be, but that doesn’t make it any less enjoyable to ride, nor does it take long for the bike’s merits to shine through provided you approach the experience with more realistic expectations. The seatstays’ bowed shape is also meant to provide a smoother ride out back, but if there’s any movement on tap here, it’s hard to tell. LTN's appear to have had a profound effect on Londoners as in now they can now shift their vitrol from Nigel Farrage to their local councilers. You can unsubscribe at any time. Road bike sizing: what size bike do I need? Captar la esencia de la bici en el montaje y en la observación de todos sus detalles es algo que nos dará parte de la información que os contaremos luego. If so was it a problem? The nearly horizontal top tube doesn't offer as much extended seatpost as other more dropped top tube designs, so seatpost deflection isn't as generous as it could be. Ride-wise there’s a lot to like about the Terra and it’s one of the best I’ve tried for covering grit and gravel quickly. Rather, it’s a group of cooperatives, jointly held by its 75,000 employee owners. The bike has clearance for 700c x 40mm tires.

I'd still prefer smaller hoods but on the upside, they are good for anchoring your hands against on rough and bumpy terrain.
