The 2023 Orbea Terra H30 1X Gravel Bike has been designed from the ground up for endless exploring, overnight adventures, rough backroads and gravel trails. As a purpose designed and built gravel platform the Terra combines control, speed and comfort but without sacrificing on the fun.
The Terra H30 is built around an advanced hydroformed aluminium frame with optimized tube sizing to maximize comfort for long rides. While the carbon (M) version of the Terra is designed to be as fast and light as possible the aluminium version is all about versatility and usability. It’s a bike you can hop on for a quick spin, a commute to work or week long bike packing trip. The aluminium frame comes with integrated rear rack mounting points which allow you to fit a variety of rear panniers.
The Terra H30 comes with 700x38c tyres fitted but can take up to 700cx45 tyres, or 650bx50 for high-volume comfort if you need a bit more traction. This version of the Terra H30 comes with a 1x11 Shimano drivetrain and Shimano hydraulic brakes, making it a good choice for those who expect to do most of their riding off-road.
This bike is perfect for
Riders who want a versatile bike that is custom built for gravel. With a 1x drivetrain you’ll be spending most of your time off-road and with the multi-mount system you can attach all the bike packing bags and racks you need for big adventures.
Gravel bikes have exploded in popularity over the last few years. There are now dozens of gravel bike events around the UK and a growing number of long distance cycling routes designed with gravel bikes in mind. In this gravel bike buying guide we’ll take you through the main things to consider when picking a gravel bike.
The main appeal of gravel bikes is versatility,. You can use them on normal roads but they’ll also work great on forest roads, old railway lines and farm tracks. So you can go for a ride off-road, avoiding cars and traffic, but link it with sections of tarmac as well. Of course you can do this on a mountain bike but a gravel bike will generally be faster and lighter. This also means you can cover some big distances when touring. A lot of gravel bike riders are road cyclists who want to get away from traffic.
As gravel bikes often get used for touring and bikepacking most will come with mounting points for bags. This luggage capacity combined with speed, and ability to handle mixed surfaces, means that gravel bikes are also extremely popular for commuting on.
Gravel bikes are very popular for commuting. We sell lots of them on the cycle to work scheme. One of our biggest stores for gravel bike sales is our Greenwich shop in London. They're mainly selling them for commuting around central London on. We’re going to run you through the pros and cons of commuting on a gravel bike and answer the question ‘are gravel bikes good for commuting?’
Gravel bikes are fast, nearly as quick as a standard road bike. They are certainly quicker on the road than most mountain bikes and many hybrids. That means you can get to work, and home, in the shortest time possible. But what makes gravel bikes so good for commuting is that they are extremely versatile. They can be ridden on tarmac, cycle paths, old railway lines, canal towpaths, and even off-road trails. So, it’s easy to mix it up on your commute and avoid traffic.
Another big advantage of commuting on a gravel bike is that they're generally more comfortable than road bikes. This is because they have wider tyres and longer wheelbases, which results in a smoother and more stable ride. So you don’t get bounced around as much on rough roads. Most gravel bikes have a fairly upright riding position which makes it easier to see what’s going on in traffic. The combination of stable handling and the comfortable riding position is a massive confidence boost for the rider, especially on wet roads.
Orbea pronounced Or-bay-ah is named after the brothers who founded the company in 1840. Initially, the company manufactured rifles and guns. The company has been making bikes since the early 1930s and winning Tour de France stages for just as long. All Orbea Bikes are assembled at the Orbea Factory based in the heart of the Basque country in Northern Spain or in their facility in Portugal.
Orbea does things a little differently from many of the big American bike brands. As the heart of Orbea's manufacturing is still in Spain and Portugal Orbea can offer much more customised service. This includes the ability to swap out colours and parts on most of their higher-end bikes to suit individual customers through their MyO program.
Although best known for their road bikes Orbea are increasingly making a name for themselves as a mountain bike brand.
