The 2022 Orbea Laufey H30 Hardtail Mountain Bike is Orbea’s most versatile mountain bike. It has the speed of a light 29” wheel hardtail with the handling of a trail focused 140mm long travel bike. The Laufey can be used for all kinds of trail riding.
Many long travel hardtails come with a 27.5” wheel whereas the Laufey uses a 29” wheel for greater speed on long fast rides over varied terrain. The trail geometry includes a slacker head angle for great stability on steep downhills, longer wheelbase for stability at speed and lower bottom bracket for better cornering.
The Laufey is built around a hydroformed aluminium frame. The hydroformed tubing allows the shapes and wall thickness of aluminium tubing to be manipulated for strength and to remove unwanted flex while saving weight. The chainstay yoke is forged and then CNC finished to give maximum clearance and rigidity. The Laufey is designed to see a lot of action. While keeping the frame light the bike is designed to be durable and ridden hard.
The Laufey H30 comes with tried and tested Rockshox Recon RL 140mm forks, super reliable Shimano Deore 1 x 11 speed gearing and Shimano hydraulic brakes. Tubeless ready wheels and a dropper seat post round out a really great value build.
This bike is perfect for
Mountain bikers who want a long travel trail bike that is fast, fun and super reliable. If you want to be riding hard every day this bike can handle it while carrying more speed than it’s 27.5” wheel competitors.
Mountain biking is an incredibly diverse sport. Mountain bikes now come in three main flavours. They are XC, Trail and Enduro.
XC – short for cross country, are quick race bikes. They will normally have 29” wheels and come with 100mm of suspension. If you are mainly going to be riding bridleways and natural trails in the South East of England, where our shops are, an XC bike will be the quickest and most efficient option.
Trail – these bikes are designed to be pedalled up and down hill and for use on bridleways and natural trails, but also at dedicated trail centres. They normally come with 130mm or 140mm of suspension travel and can have either 27.5” or 29” wheels, but 29” is quickly becoming the norm. Trail bikes are good all-rounders. They won’t be as fast as an XC bike on the flat but they can handle a lot more challenging terrain, and a few jumps. If you plan on taking your bike to trail centres in Wales, or to the Alps, then a trail bike may be your best option.
Enduro – enduro racing is a thing in and of itself but many people buy enduro bikes for ‘aggressive’ trail riding and uplift days at places like Bike Park Wales. This generally means challenging downhill trails with some big jumps. With around 160mm of suspension travel enduro bikes can take some big hits. They are designed to be efficient enough to pedal up hills but really come into their own when pointed downhill. You get enduro bikes in either 27.5” or 29” wheel sizes as well as mullet setups of 29 at the front and 27.5 at the back.
Nearly all the mountain bikes we sell are now unisex. All of the big brands have gradually stopped doing dedicated men’s and women’s bikes over the last few years. Instead they are focussed on producing bikes in a bigger range of sizes. So, for instance, the Trek Marlin 5 is a unisex bike that now comes in sizes from XXS to XXL large. This means it will fit riders from 4’ 5” to 6’ 5” and everything in between.
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.
