Cycles UK is proud to announce we are stocking the Orbea Brand bicycles for 2021.

Orbea pronounced Or-bay-ah is named after the brothers who founded it in 1840 initially to manufacture rifles and guns. Orbea has been making bikes since the early 1930s and winning Tour de France stages for just as long. Not forgetting Orbea bikes were ridden by the gold medal winners in both mountain and road at the Beijing Olympics. In the late '60s, the company became a co-op many of whom are relatives. All Orbea Bikes are assembled at the Orbea Factory based in the heart of the Basque country in Northern Spain, Orbea is one of the oldest and best-respected bike companies in Europe.

Orbea does things a little differently from many of the big American bike brands. The heart of Orbea's manufacturing is still in Spain and Portugal. Parts are shipped in from all over the world and then assembled as they are needed. This means Orbea can offer much more customised service, including the ability to swap out colours and parts on most of their higher-end bikes to suit individual customers.

Although best known in the UK for their road bikes, the Orbea Avant range being very popular with price range starting at £779


Orbea also has a growing reputation as a mountain bike brand with the Occam full suspension bike range.


Orbea also makes a comprehensive range of kids bikes, hybrids, electric and commuting machines.

Cycles UK aim to become the leading Orbea dealers in Essex, Kent, Hertfordshire and London. We will be stocking a wide range of Orbea road, mountain and electric bikes online and in our stores for 2021.
