OR­BEA’S SUB­TLE CHARGE

Urban Cyclist - - Agenda -

The elec­tric ur­ban theme charges through this is­sue’s gear high­lights thanks to this im­pres­sive num­ber from Or­bea. The Gain Ur­ban fea­tures the com­pany’s Enough Power and Enough En­ergy con­cept, which po­si­tions a sleek bat­tery within the down­tube that ‘pro­vides you with enough bat­tery power, not more’. At time of press, Or­bea had yet to con­firm how many as­sisted miles this equates to, though they also pro­vide a re­serve bat­tery for longer rides. This fits neatly within a bot­tle cage. A svelte de­sign sees a type of socket lo­cated at the bot­tom bracket that en­sures easy charg­ing. This also acts as an in­ter­face for sys­tem di­ag­no­sis or that back-up bat­tery. The sim­ple lines, de­signed to cre­ate a non-elec­tri­fied look, con­tin­ues up­front with a sim­ple but­ton ac­ti­vat­ing a host of fea­tures in­clud­ing mo­tor as­sist level and level of bat­tery charge. All in all, this is one cool-look­ing elec­tric ur­ban bike from the Span­ish gi­ants. www.or­bea.com
