Orbea Gain D20 Electric Road Bike Review

The 2022 Orbea Gain D20 is the top model in the Gain alloy model line-up.

The D20 offers premium componentry and a highly competitive price point and is a great value electric road bike whether you're a new rider entering the market on a bike with room to grow into it, or have tens of thousands of miles on your Strava account already.

The Gain range, with its "Enough Energy" concept is designed to improve but not take over your ride. Lightweight, highly nimble and effortlessly rideable, the New Orbea Gain D20 is a bike which "heeds the call of the open road".

Our 5 point review...


Lightweight and rugged alloy frame


Internally mounted 248Wh battery


Shimano Ultegra group set - the most widely used fast road/race group set in the world


Compact, punchy and reliable Mahle eBikemotion X35 motor


Simple IWOC control system with Bluetooth and ANT+ app integration


Orbea Gain D20 Handlebars

New for 2022..

Along with the rest of the Gain range, the price of the 2022 Orbea Gain D20 has increased slightly over the previous two years, but not without very good cause - the model has been dramatically overhauled 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.

This increases aerodynamic efficiency while shaving a little more weight from this already very light electric road eBike.

Fully integrated..

Along with its new headset design to fully integrate the gearshift cables and brake lines, Orbea have also designed a brand new integrated daytime running light which doubles as a cycle computer mount for Garmin and Wahoo devices, now compatible across the full Gain 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.

Orbea Gain D20 Shimano Ultegra Brakes & Gears

Brakes & Gears

The Shimano Ultegra M8070 hydraulic disc brakes ensure you can come to a stop just as quickly as you accelerate on this eRoad bike.

The D20, being at the top end of the specification level for the Gain range comes with a complete Shimano Ultegra group set. Ultegra twin chain ring cranks, Ultegra R8000 rear derailleur and cassette, ST8020 shifters and R8070 brakes make up this competition capable 22spd set-up.

Orbea Gain D20 Shimano Ultegra Brakes

The Shimano Ultegra hydraulic disc brakes are widely regarded as some of the best in road cycling, with a large range of pad choice.

Orbea Gain D20 Shimano Ultegra Gears

Shimano Ultegra 11 speed gearing is only one step down from competition grade Dura-Ace components and is silky smooth.

Orbea Gain D20 Shimano Ultegra Shifters

The Shimano Ultegra combined gear and brake levers are ultra-smooth and offer controlled braking and smooth shifting in one neat unit.

Wheels & Tyres

Lightweight Ready GR alloy rims from Blackjack are agile but strong and allow for a wide choice of tyre fitment.

The Blackjack rims are wrapped with fast rolling Hutchinson Fusion 5 30c All Seasons road tyres, but the forks and frame allow for upto 40c options.

The bottom line..

Normally, the most noticeable component on an eBike is the Battery, but this isn't the case on the Gain models.

Seamlessly integrated into the downtube, the 248Wh internal battery on the 2022 Orbea Gain D20 is hidden from view to provide a totally integrated and aesthetically immaculate look.

The latest Mahle Ebikemotion drive system offers smooth and reliable assistance to enhance and improve on your own ride but without dominating it.

The Torque Simulation Algorithm directly mirrors the rider input to provide maximum power when you need it, but preserves range when you're spinning freely, making the Gain D20 a joy to ride on almost any terrain.

eBikemotion X35 eSystem

Riding the bike aside, one of the best parts of the new 2022 Gain D20 electric road bikes is the completely 'hidden' eDrive system.

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.

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.

Orbea Gain D20 eBike Motion iWOC Button

The IWOC control system uses just a single button to display the current battery status and change between power modes.

Orbea Gain D20 eBike Motion X35 Motor

The eBikemotion motor is small, compact and ultra reliable but packs a punch on long ascents and false flats.

Its just like a normal bike to ride

I looked for ages for a light bike, this only 13K. So I can lift it. Its just like a normal bike to ride with a bit of a push up hill.
I have only used the first power, it has 2 more to go. I have had 4 new knees so need a short crank and this was done for me with with no bother.
But I do have a problem with the brakes I am 5 ft and have a small bike frame 47cm I think but I could not reach the brakes at all to start with, would have to have been a monkey with arms down by my knees.
At 5ft and size 3 shoe I also have small hands. All goes together. It has now been tweaked and I can just reach the top of the brake. So I can slow down but not stop in a hurry.
Seems strange that a small frame dose not come with small handlebars. One size dose not fit all.
But I love my bike I can keep up with my friends going up hill at 74 was getting difficult could get up but everyone had to wait for me, not good.

We bought the D20 so that my wife Norma

We bought the D20 so that my wife Norma could keep riding with me on my easier days and we can only say that it’s brought an amazing and fun element to her riding.

We go to Majorca every April/May with Stevenage CC and as you cannot take the bike on an aircraft we thought that she would have to hire a normal road bike as usual(a bit disappointing).

However after a bit of online searching we found that Wheelssport of Can Picafor and Alcudia have the D20 for hire.

Hope that this info is of use to someone.

Production of my bike was delayed a little

Awesome service from E-Bike

Production of my bike was delayed a little but they kept me informed and got my new toy out to me as soon as they could, even offered me one they had in shop but was orange and Im just not good enough to merit riding a bright orange bike :)

Would recommend Martin and the team to anyone. Great service, great comms, top quality kit. 5 stars

I have been riding the bike for a few

I have been riding the bike for a few weeks now and it's a real joy.
Feels very like a normal road bike and the extra weight is not noticeable when on the move. Freewheeling is as per a normal bike with no drag from the transmission. When you're riding at about 16mph it feels a bit odd at first as you can feel the motor pulsing in and out as it goes over the speed cut-off point and then falls below; but I don't notice this now.

Controls take a few minutes to understand, but once on the move they are very simple and so easy to move between the different power maps.

The associated smartphone eBikemotion app is easy to set up and brilliant in that it allows tweaking of the power levels in each map. The downside is that although the data it gives on your smartphone is very similar to Garmin, on the eBikemotion website they are almost totally outrageous - av. speed 35mph and average cadence 146rpm? - I don't think so!

Why did I get an ebike? I've been riding/training/racing at elite masters level for quite a few years and recently developed a heart problem (arrhythmia) which has progressively made it impossible to get out for even a steady road ride on my trusty TCR. With a little help from the Orbea I can now comfortably sit on my wife's wheel (retired racer too) when out for a ride (with a little map tweaking) and if we hit any steep hills I can switch up into max power and considerably reduce the effort required. The range when out riding like this should be about 65 miles.

Any downsides? Well yes - I'm just fitting mudguards for the winter and most of the mounting threads have been oversprayed with paint (no problem for me as I have taps and dies to hand) and the front mudguard requires some significant mods to get an SKS to fit. Also, the rear wheel requires a bit of a knack to remove; I have found that the gear side wheel nut needs to be completely taken off the axle to get the wheel off and back in. Luckily I haven't had to do that out on the road yet. Lastly, the cables could have been set up a bit better when the bike was new - I have had to shorten both gear gear cables to prevent them ballooning out in the wind.

Overall - the bike is brilliant. Just looking very enviously at the 2019 carbon range though!

Not the best experience as the bike stopped working

Not the best experience as the bike stopped working after about 30 minutes. I had to make another 4 hour trip round the M25 the next day to get the battery and control equipment replaced.
I can’t comment on the staff as I only saw them a couple of minutes each time to get a very brief explanation of the controls.
I did not receive an acknowledgement of the order until I phoned up and asked for it. Delivery was delayed due to problems with the battery supply (not the fault of e-bikes but they did promise “We will be looking to offer a little something special in light of the delay”, I am still waiting).
All that aside I am very pleased with the bike as it does what I expected.
The 22 Ultegra gears provide a good range. When using the battery riders should use the gears as they would on a conventional bike and not rely just on the battery to vary the speed and effort.
The hydraulic disc brakes are excellent with reservoirs hidden beneath the brake hoods. The stopping distance is shorter than for calliper brakes and care should be taken when riding in a group.
Low power setting enables riders to pull away quickly from stop. Using a higher power is not recommended for starting off when in a group or at a junction as it can be difficult to control the speed until more experienced.
The bike has 23mm rims and is fitted with 28mm tyres that can be inflated to 85psi maximum. This provides a comfortable ride but with a bit more rolling resistance than conventional 25mm road tyres inflated to 100psi. The tubes supplied are 23/25mm? I have tried a 25mm tyre but have not seen any tyres advertised to fit on road e-bikes.
I would suggest owners practice removing the rear wheel before riding as it can be a bit tricky to reinstall the first time.
The overall paint job looks good but as it has a matt finish it is not easy to keep clean.
I have fitted mudguards for winter use. There are securing points on the inside of the front fork and a 60mm screw can be purchased from your local bike shop for the top of the fork. There are also securing eyelets at the rear hub, top of fork and behind the bottom bracket. A pannier rack can also be fitted.
A 50 mile ride with about 2,000ft altitude gain at an average of 12.5mph with the bike at constant low power is about maximum range. The battery does not give much power below 10%. I use an iPhone SE to run the Ebikemotion app and the phone battery drains at twice the speed of the bike battery. A portable power bank charger comes in useful at the coffee stop.
I have done a couple of 70 mile rides with about 15% battery left at the end. This is with only using the battery on hills.
