What Makes Orbea Terra Unique

How Good Is The Orbea Terra Carbon Gravel Bike

Orbea Terra Geometry

Orbea call it all road geometry. This basically means this bike will work just as well on the road as it will on the gravel. The position is almost the same, and the bike is designed to meet both road cycling and gravel riding needs in comfort.

Control in a variety of circumstances. Terra is designed to be at home on dirt, gravel or just about anything else you might encounter. Terra ergonomics work for cyclocross, all-day rides and the occasional long training day on the road.

Handling is precise and intuitive. Angles and dimensions are considered carefully across a range of sizes to maximize rider comfort.

The Versatility of the Orbea

Several bikes in one – Terra can fill several roles – Gravel, Road, Cyclocross, Winter Training or Commuting. Tire clearance, the ability to mount accessories like mudguards combined with a functional All-Road geometry means that Terra can change with the seasons.

The bike is designed with comfort in mind for those who want to do long days in the saddle and be able to travel along with your road buddies without feeling badly out of place. Just a change of wheels or tires should see you able to stay with them as long as you are all at the same fitness level.

Choosing Your Own Specifications and Build

The bike comes in various colors that you can choose and you can build your own design with many different options. The top of the range model comes with a Shimano GRX Groupset that is as good as you can get for a gravel bike. Superb for those who are looking for reliability and a groupset that will not let you down, and should be capable of taking you anywhere you want to go.

Check out a full review of the bike in 2017. The bike itself has changed very little in the time apart from the shimano grx groupset.

Frame and Fork Warranty

LIFETIME WARRANTY 

***LIFETIME WARRANTY IS ONLY VALID IF YOU COMPLETE THE ONLINE FORM WITHIN 30 DAYS OF PURCHASING YOUR ORBEA***

Orbea provides all original retail purchasers with a limited lifetime warranty on all frames and rigid forks against defects of material or workmanship that result in breaks or cracks to the frame or rigid fork.

To complement the Legal Warranty, ORBEA offers all its users Orbea's Lifetime Warranty, which is completely voluntary and free of charge. It consists of a lifetime warranty with no time limitations that covers all frames and rigid forks assembled on our bicycles against breaking and/or cracks.

Orbea's Lifetime Warranty will also extend coverage against paint, varnish and corrosion defects on all frames and rigid forks for 1 additional year after the end of the legal warranty (in other words, for up to 3 years after the purchase of the product by the user).

When filing a claim under Orbea's Lifetime Warranty, the buyer shall have the right to the repair and/or replacement of any broken or cracked frames and/or rigid forks.

CONDITIONS

This warranty will only be valid for the original buyer of the product, who must have completed the online registration form for the bicycle or frame within 30 days of having purchased the product. ORBEA registration page.

This warranty may not, therefore, be transferred to other parties who subsequently acquire the materials covered by the warranty, as they are not the original buyer.

When filing a claim under this warranty, the user must provide a copy of the purchase document (sales invoice) for the bicycle to ORBEA or the dealer.

You do not get better than this unless wheels are also included. A bike like this should be bought new for frame satisfaction. It is a lightweight carbon frame, and due to their design they could break at anytime from a simple pothole to a bad road defect.
