The 2022 Orbea Vector Drop Road Bike in Night Black is a factory modified version of the Vector hybrid bike to make a road bike tailored for commuting and light touring. The Vector Drop fast and sporty bike that is at home in the city, heading down the odd cycle path or on open roads winding through the hills. A blend of low weight and durability, Vector is the perfect tool for doing whatever you like - whether it’s commuting or taking a few extra minutes for a detour in the park.
The Orbea Vector Drop is built around a 6000 Aluminium frame that uses Orbea’s urban speed geometry. This is a bike designed to get you where you want to go fast. The frame uses internal cable routing for a clean and tidy look and comes with all of the mounting points you need for pannier racks or mudguards. The wide 38c tyres have enough grip to handle cycle paths, old railway lines and canal towpaths.
To keep things fast the Vector Drop uses Shimano Tiagra road bike gearing so you can easily maintain speed. The 2 x 10 speed setup gives you 20 gears total so you can get up hills with ease. Top stop you on the way back down the bike comes with Shimano Tiagra Hydraulic disc brakes.

If you want to commute to work quickly, do some light touring, maybe mix in some easy gravel riding, the Vector Drop can do it. This is a super versatile bike that will take you where you want to go.
Hybrids are the bikes that most people should have. If you want a bike for commuting, going to the shops, getting fit or just for getting around a hybrid is generally the best choice. They combine the speed of a road racing bike with the confident handling of a mountain bike to give you the best of both worlds.
The first point to think about when picking a hybrid is the kind of surfaces you will be riding on. There are two main flavours of hybrid bike. Some, like the Trek FX, Specialized Sirrus and Cannondale Quick are mainly intended for use on the road. They have bigger gears and skinnier tyres so that they are fast on tarmac. Other bikes like the Trek Dual Sport, Specialized Sirrus X or Cannondale Quick CX are designed to be used on a mixture of surfaces including tracks and gravel paths. They have bigger, grippier tyres and often come with easier gears and some suspension to soak up bumps.
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.
