Orbea Gain e-bike
In a previous year, Orbea launched the Gain. This bike has a battery enclosed in the lower tube and powered by a rear hub engine. The Gain possessed an alloy frame before which weighed around 28 pounds. But now, Orbea Gain has an all-carbon frame, dropping the weight to 25 pounds.
A fully enclosed removable battery placed in the down tube provides a power. Orbea has implemented sophisticated controller electronics in this bike. Orbea emphasizes that the Gain is created to enhance riding, preferably than to dominate it, with an energy meter in the rear hub enabling the system to improve input as you drive. Pedaling is drag free when the engine isn’t providing power.
The electric bike has a motion rear hub engine. It means that the rear wheel needs to be designed primarily for the Gain. To do so, Orbea has partnered with the Mavic. Now, the Gain has Mavic wheelsets; something like alloy Aksium Elite Disc UST or Cosmic Pro Carbon Disc UST. Also, Gain has a frame clearance to fit tires up to 40mm. However, this new Gain Carbon comes with Mavic wheels and 28mm tires.
The carbon Gain comes in four specs.
The Gain M10 has a Mavic Cosmic Pro Carbon Disc UST wheelset and a Shimano Dura-Ace hydraulic disc brake groupset and costs $8899. The Gain M20i is priced at $6549 and appears with Mavic Aksium Elite wheelset and Ultegra Di2 hydraulic. The Gain M20 costs $5249. Eventually, the Gain M30, with Shimano 105 hydraulic comes in at $4459.
