Avant is designed for longer days in the saddle with a refined riding position to help prevent the onset of fatigue. The Avant fork uses a shallower rounded fork blade to offer increased tire clearance whilst still maintaining stiffness.
The Avant H40 uses a triple butted hydroformed aluminum frame combined with a carbon fork to help reduce front end road vibration creating a more comfortable ride over poorer surfaces. Shimano’s updated Tiagra 4700 10 speed compact drive components are lighter and more precise using features from Shimano’s higher tiered models. The 11-32 rear cassette allows for the steepest of climbs to be conquered.

Founded over 140 years ago, in Spain’s mountainous Basque region, Orbea is one of the world’s oldest cycling companies and a custodian of the traditions, roots and heritage of the sport.
Expertise gained over this long history - which by the company's own admission encompasses both successes and failures - has moulded Orbea into what it is today; a market leader renowned for its meticulous attention to detail and technical mastery reminiscent of Spanish form from the days of the Arab conquerors of the Iberian Peninsula.
Every tiny detail on the bike is the result of hours of research and development; each design line carefully considered, each component hand selected to provide the best possible riding experience, without compromise.
So when you mount an Orbea bike you can be sure of its quality, you know its pedigree, you know where it comes from. Now it’s up to you where to take it next.
