New Orbea Carbon Gain: World’s Lightest Electric Road Bike 2019?
We are excited to show you a sneak preview of the world lightest carbon electric road bike. The new Orbea Gain Carbon 2019 eBike comes in at an unbelievable 11.3kg a revolution in the world of eRoad Bikes.
We’ve had a fantastic year with the launch of the Orbea Gain electric road bikes with eBikes offered down to 13kg, which is almost unheard of in the world of electric biking.
New for 2019 we expand the Orbea Gain electric road bike line up to include the Gain Carbon. An even lighter, more agile and special electric road bike than ever before.
At first, you may not believe it’s even an e-Assisted road bike, it’s sleek frame design, integrated battery/motor and wiring go unnoticed on the bike.
The 2019 Orbea Carbon Gain bikes all share the same frame, motor & battery. Available in 5 different spec options ranging from Shimano 105, right through to Shimano Dura Ace:-
Orbea Gain Carbon M30 2019 Electric Road Bike
The Gain M30 is the entry-level model in the Carbon Gain range. Offered with a Shimano 105 11-Speed Groupset, Mavic Aksium Alloy wheelset and FSA Gossamer finishing kit.
Orbea Gain Carbon M20 2019 Electric Road Bike
The Gain M20 offers a similar spec to the M30 above, but comes fully equipped with the new Shimano Ultegra 11-Speed groupset, FSA Energy handlebars and matching Ultegra disc brakes.
Orbea Gain Carbon M20i 2019 Electric Road Bike
The Gain M20i is exactly the same spec as the standard M20, but with full Shimano Ultegra Di2 integration. This 11-speed drivetrain offers complete electronic shifting on the fly.
Orbea Gain Carbon M21 2019 Electric Road Bike
The Carbon Gain M21 differs from the rest of the pack. It’s a lightweight Carbon cyclocross road bike. With a Sram Force, wide range 11-speed gear set, single ring at the front & wider CX tyres.
Orbea Gain Carbon M10 2019 Electric Road Bike
The 2019 Orbea Gain M10 is the top spec contender in the Carbon Gain line up. It’s the cream of the crop offered with the latest and greatest Shimano Dura Ace groupset and lightweight Mavic carbon clincher wheels along with other carbon finishing kit goodies.
Colours / Options
All Carbon Gain 2019 models are available in 5 sizes from Small (46cm) through to XL (61cm).
The new 2019 Carbon Orbea Gain electric road bikes are available in 4 colour choices including Red, Blue, Black and Orange. On top of this clients can special order Carbon Gain eBikes in custom spec colours via the Orbea MyO custom configurator where the factory will produce one-off bikes painted in-house to the customers specified design.
The MyO custom configurator can also spec exact component requirements, tailored to each client. Please enquire if this is something of interest & we can run you through the options.
What do we think?
The current Orbea Gain alloy frame models took us by surprise, we’ve been overwhelmed with the popularity to date. No other eBike supplier ticks all those boxes when producing an electric road bike that’s: Agile, Lightweight, Resistance Free, Fully Integrated and comes with full road groupsets.
We expect the demand to be even higher on the new 2019 Carbon bikes to complement to alloy frame models and to top it all off the pricing across the range is extraordinary.
In particular, we see the Shimano Ultegra Di2 model (Gain M20) with the fully integrated groupset on the Carbon frame to be one of the most popular models where the eShift completely complements the eDrive system – this is the future, but right now.
When can I get one?
We are taking behind the scenes orders to reserve bikes and we have already placed factory reservations here to ensure we are the first with stock to hand. Based on the expected popularity, we are taking reservations on a queued basis.
For those lucky to get on the list, we expect the first drop of bikes from August, September and October onwards (Depending on spec/size/colour). Bikes will be supplied on a first come first served basis. Models can be reserved with a small £399 deposit or payment upfront on MyO spec models.
