Orbea Avant

Orbea Avant

For 2017, Orbea didn’t focus its attention on just the Orca. The Avant endurance road bike has received some pretty impressive updates as well. Designed for long rides over mixed terrain, the Avant features the same carbon used in mid-range Orca framesets, but still manages to shave a good bit of weight from the previous Avant without sacrificing stiffness. The frame's tubing shapes and geometry are designed to maximize comfort and compliance in both the seat stays, head tube, and fork, making the Avant a perfect choice for long rides on rough and unpaved roads. Disc-equipped models start at $2,799, while bikes with aluminum frames and caliper brakes can be had for as little as $949. [From $949; orbea.com
