Orbea Gain D40 Road Electric Bike Rider Review

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".

Our 5 point review...


Lightweight and rugged alloy frame


Internally mounted 248Wh battery


Shimano Tiagra group set - a great value entry to road cycling


Compact, punchy and reliable Mahle eBikemotion X35 motor


Simple IWOC control system with Bluetooth and ANT+ app integration

New for 2022..

Along with the rest of the Gain range, the price of the 2022 Orbea Gain D40 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.

Brakes & Gears

The Shimano Tiagra 4770 hydraulic disc brakes ensure you can come to a stop just as quickly as you accelerate on this eRoad bike.

Setting the benchmark for entry-level group sets, the Shimano Tiagra 4700 setup on the 2022 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.

The Shimano Tiagra hydraulic disc brakes aoffer smooth, controlled braking regardless of terrain or weather.

Shimano Tiagra 10 speed gearing is a common feature on some mid-tier road bikes, but is well placed on this entry level Gain.

Orbea Gain D40 Road eBike Shimano Tiagra Shifters

The Shimano Tiagra combined gear and brake levers are ultra-smooth and offer controlled braking and reliable 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 Performance 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 D40 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 D40 a joy to ride on almost any terrain.

Riding the bike aside, one of the best parts of the new 2022 Gain D40 electric road bikes is the completely 'hidden' eDrive system.

I was having problems with my knees due to

I was having problems with my knees due to arthritis which was limiting my bike riding especially when it came to climbing hills (I currently live in the Western Lakes).
So I decided to look for an electric road bike which could extend my rides and yet still give me the exercise and pleasure of riding a bike.
This bike fits the bill and gives me exactly what I was looking for, a bike on which I could enjoy my retirement and I am now climbing hills which I could not have contemplated only a month ago.
I addition I can't fault the service provided by E-bikeshop, my bike arrived on time and was quite easy to assemble.

I’ve got plenty of miles in my legs and then I had a cardiac arrest. I’ve now got an eHeart (defibrillator) but I don’t want to overcook it on the lumps. This is perfect. Still riding but not into the red.

As a seasoned cyclist that no longer enjoyed a

As a seasoned cyclist that no longer enjoyed a stiff hill climb or long winding gradients but still looking to be enjoying cycling but unable to avoid the hills in my area I was looking for an e bike but the big hefty bulky bikes didn't appeal to me also I didn't need full power and here is where my Orbea gain comes into its own brilliant bike lightweight for an e bike and secluded battery which gives me what I want takes the sting out of the hills and puts the joys back into cycling

Ian Reiffer
My wife wanted to be able to find a

My wife wanted to be able to find a bike where she could get out and enjoy the ride. She has previously felt disheartened as where we live in Wales she struggles in the hilly terrain. We looked at the Orbea gain for some time and all the research we did suggested this would be a credible option for her. We then decided on the model and decided the Gain D40 with a tiagra group set was a suitable choice. It was a struggle to find anyone who could deliver before the end of July. That was before I stumbled upon ebikeshop.co.uk, during a google search and subsequently started communicating with Alfred.

Ebike shop had a Gain D40 in stock at the right size for my wife. We spoke on the phone on a Saturday with Alfred and by Thursday she had taken delivery and was out testing it! The process to get to that stage was very smooth. Alfred was nothing but helpful and efficient at all stages, communicating very well, both by phone and email. He made everything clear, was a source of knowledge and acted quickly to get the bike to us.

The bike itself is amazing. I was slightly concerned when it arrived as it is a heavy bike, as its aluminium with carbon forks and has a battery motor, compared to my full carbon road bike, it was much heavier than I expected. This made me worry that my wife may struggle. My concerns melted away the first ride out! My wife could maintain a good pace on the flat, where the engine cuts out at 15mph, the bike rolls very well and there is minimal drag, generally travelling at circa 18mph, but then as we hit the hills the motor would kick in and the assistance was amazing and totally changed the ride experience for her. She still had to pedal, but all the grinding of a 10%+ gradient had gone, and she was able to spin nicely. The 3 power settings are ideal for her and will allow her to still maintain some level of power as she gets fitter and needs less extra power.

The bike does not look like an ebike at all, something that was important to my wife, you really cannot tell, other than the size of the rear wheel hub, as this is where the engine sits. The battery capacity is spot on, she is able to join me on rides up-to 50-60 miles and she can monitor the battery level through the app, so if it's over 50% then we can review our plan to ensure we get back home without running out.

So, in summary, a great bike bought through a customer-focused business, who know how to deal with distance buyers and Alfred, thank you very much for your support and advice!

This bike is everything I was looking for in

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.

It just feels like riding with a tailwind on the flat and climbing still takes some effort but you get up to the top faster and, in my case, with a couple of gears to spare. The motor is just powerful enough to help, it wont give you a free ride.

The Orbea is still a road bike and you will find yourself way above the 25kmph cut off point very easily but it cuts off so smoothly you don't even notice that it has, there doesn't appear to be any drag from the motor when this happens and fast riding under your own steam is a joy. And it preserves battery life. I've managed 50km normal riding on rolling terrain and still had just under 50% left.

Love it. and also the service from Martin and the guys at Farnham. Thanks.
