Nos vélos sont livrés presque entièrement assemblés, mais le montage de la roue avant et l'alignement du gidon doivent être effectués par vos soins.
In Nordic Mithology, Laufey is the mysterious mother of Loki, the most sneaky swindler of all time. And furthermore, Laufey is the origin of Orbea´s so far most versatile and smartest bike: The Laufey has created a new riding style! Instead of saying that the Laufey is only tailored to a specific type of rider, Orbea developers go one step further and claim that this fun-loving model is simply perfect for everyone.
The Laufey is more aggressive thanks to its 130mm fork and durable tyres. These height and length measurements are relatively coherent and thus guarantee perfect handling of an elegant, fun and fast wheel for all riders, regardless of frame and tyre size.
Orbea manipulate the shapes and thicknesses of aluminium tubes to achieve greater strength and resistance while avoiding undesirable deformation. Many of the tubes are compressed in the middle, far away from the stresses of the welds and joints, in order to achieve a weight reduction. The aluminium technology is as advanced as the carbon production, which is why the Alubikes are always among the best.
The 430 mm short chainstays make the Laufey fast, resistant and responsive. The increased rear axle length from 142 mm to 148 mm allows the chain to be moved outwards by 3 mm, allowing more space at the pedal crank.
This is not a dropper support, but a quick adjustment support. Orbea's patented Digit seat post, on the other hand, is significantly lighter and faster to adjust the height of the saddle while driving by means of a short stop.
DOUBLE DUTY 27+ / 29
Double Duty means two wheels in a single model. The same frame gives you a choice of 27+ or 29" tyres. The 27+ are wider than conventional tyres and have a much higher volume, which is why they require less pressure. This means that the Plus tires go further than their rivals, even in mud, snow and sand, on virtually any terrain.
