The Orbea Gain D40 is a great value entry level electric road bike whether you're just starting out or have tens of thousands of miles on your Strava account. The Gain range, with its "Enough Energy" concept is designed to improve but not take over your ride. Lightweight, sportive and effortlessly rideable, its a bike that "heeds the call of the open road".
This bike is everything I was looking for in an e-bike. As an experienced cyclist, I didn't want to lose the "real feel" of cycling, I just wanted something to take the sting out of some of the climbs and this is exactly what the Orbea does.
Along with the rest of the Gain range, the price of the 2021 Orbea Gain D40 has increased slightly over last year, but not without very good cause - the model has been dramatically overhauled for the new 2021 model year and offers exceptional value.
A brand new frame design while retaining the previous well proven geometry sees subtle changes to the hydroformed alloy tubing shape - increasing aerodynamic efficiency while shaving a little more weight from this already very light road eBike.
Along with a new headset design to fully integrate the gearshift cables and brake lines, Orbea have also designed a brand new integrated daytime running light directly into the base of the stem, now compatible across the full Gain and Vibe range. This is complemented at the rear of the bike with a bright but aesthetically unobtrusive tail light built into the seat tube and runs directly from the eBike battery system.
The 2021 Gain D40 also benefits from a newly designed full carbon front fork set up.
Setting the benchmark for entry-level group sets, the Shimano Tiagra 4700 setup on the 2021 Orbea Gain D40 is the perfect blend of function and performance against price. Using technology borrowed from their more premium 105, Dura-Ace and Ultegra setups, Shimano bring top quality performance to the grass roots of road cycling at incredible value.
Power On Demand
The IWOC One system on the Orbea Gain D40 sees the power and status button mounted completely flush in the top tube next to the stem for ease of access. This "one button for all" system is used for turning the bike on and off, cycling through power modes, displaying current power mode while also offering an at-a-glance visual of the remaining battery power.
The Ebikemotion X35 system used to power the Gain D40 models is directly compatible with their own app.
Turning your mobile device into a high tech cycle computer, it provides an instant readout of key information from both the bike and your own input. It also records your activity and can be linked to heart rate monitors and GPS for full performance tracking.
Normally, the most noticeable component on an eBike is the Battery, but this isn't the case on the Orbea Gain models. Seamlessly integrated into the downtube, the 248Wh internal battery on the 2021 Orbea Gain D40 is hidden from view to provide a totally integrated and aesthetically immaculate look.
Built with Orbea's "Enough Energy" philosophy at the forefront of the design process, only by shaving off unnecessary weight by doing away with bulky components makes this level of integration possible.
The lightweight, hydroformed alloy frame and newly designed full carbon front fork on the Orbea Gain D40 2021 offer a smooth, comfortable yet playfully nimble ride.
Combined with a Selle Royale Asphalt saddle and shock proof bar tape, the frame offers a comfortable ride, regardless of how many miles you plan to cover.
The Shimano Tiagra 4770 hydraulic disc brakes ensure you can come to a stop just as quickly as you accelerate on this eRoad bike.
The latest Mahle Ebikemotion drive system offers smooth and reliable assistance to enhance and improve on your own ride but without dominating it. Orbea's Torque Simulation Algorithm directly mirrors the rider input to provide maximum power when you need it, but preserves range when you're spinning freely.
Lightweight Ready GR alloy rims from Blackjack are agile but strong, wrapped with fast rolling Hutchinson Fusion 5 All Seasons road tyres.
The Orbea Gain D40 2021 is built with maximum clearance, giving a huge choice of tyres of up to 40c width.
Riding the bike aside, one of the best parts of the new 2021 Orbea Gain D40 electric road bikes is the completely 'hidden' eDrive system. Developed closely with eBikeMotion and Orbea at their Spanish HQ, the system is designed to amplify your ride.
Designed to not take away from the ride but to assist your performance, the extra 40Nm from the rear hub motor allows the rider to climb bigger ascents and average a faster overall speed.
3 Modes of Assistance - Controllable by the multi-function power button on the top tube.
Full rider credentials are displayed in the Smart Phone (not essential) application including speed, distance travelled, altitude, battery capacity, trip time and many more.
The smart phone app also has the functionality to pair Bluetooth heart rate monitors or simply connect your Android Wearable or iWatch to run alongside for the full sporting package.
