Every Orbea bicycle is born in the heart of the Pyrenees in northern Spain. It is a region that is lush and emerald green with a mild climate that is good for riding year-round. It is a land where cycling is a way of life. This region, known as Euskadi in the Basque language and Pais Vasco in Spanish, is home to some 1,500 cycling clubs and thousands of cyclists. It is a region where children learn to ride in school and are taught the history of cycling in the region. Even the government promotes cycling; passing laws to designate cycling routes where cars must drive very slow and pass with extra care.
In short, it is the perfect place to design and make a bicycle. Each and every Orbea is made with a passion that is expressed in beautiful bikes. Every Orbea has an intricate hand-painted finish that takes hours to perfect. More importantly, every Orbea ignites passion in its rider. Orbea bicycles climb with aplomb and descend intuitively. It is a pedigree born in the best cycling region in the world: The Pyrenees.
