Orbea is one of the oldest bicycle companies in the world – while founded by the Orbea family in 1840 – Orbea began producing bicycles in the 1920s. In the late 1960’s, Orbea evolved into an employee owned cooperative. Orbea has successfully competed in the Tour de France for decades. In the late 1980’s Orbea entered the mountain bike market and has maintained a competitive team to this day. Based in the northern Spanish town of Mallabia, Orbea still manufactures the majority of it’s bikes right there in Spain and Portugal.
Today, Orbea offers market leading, innovative bikes in nearly every category, including some of the most progressive bikes in electric mountain biking – the Orbea Wild FS and Orbea Rise RS – in both carbon fiber and hydro formed alloy frame styles.
