Orbea has launched a new multi-purpose series of electric bikes called the Keram, which are aimed at satisfying a range of cyclists across a number of different riding styles.
At the core of the new Keram series is a mid-mounted Bosch Active Plus motor coupled to a 500Wh or 400Wh battery, along with the German brand’s innovative bar mounted display and controller.
The Keram’s battery has been designed to integrate smoothly into the frame’s down tube, which can easily be removed for charging. Moreover, the bike also features a locking system by Abus, as well as a shielded charging port for added protection.
Orbea has also added a water bottle mount that can also serve as a spot for an additional battery pack, which fits inside the frame’s main triangle to double the Keram’s travel range.
The first in the series of Keram models is the £2499 Shimano Deore equipped Asphalt 20 that’s aimed at commuters and urban cyclists alike, which features a rigid alloy fork, a 38-tooth crankset and 11-42 10-speed cassette, along with front and rear safety lights and a rack.
There’s also the £2069 Asphalt 30, which trims the price by dropping down to the less expensive Shimano Altus 9-speed drivetrain.
Geared more toward longer “adventure” rides, the Comfort models start with the £2499 Keram Comfort 20, followed by the less expensive £2069 Comfort 30.
Both models come equipped with the same Shimano groupsets as the Asphalt 20 and Asphalt 30, along with a Suntour suspension fork, Kenda 50mm tires, mudguards, lights and a rear rack as well.
Lastly, there are three mountain bike spec’d Keram models called the Keram Max (£2499), Keram 15 (£2339) and the Keram 20 (£2069) that come equipped with a range of Shimano MTB groupsets, along with either a RockShox Recon RL 120 or 30 Silver TK 100 suspension fork.
Each is designed to work with a number of different carrier racks, lights, mudguards and locks, allowing it to be configured for a range of uses.
Customers can also add an integrated kickstand, and customize their bike via Orbea’s MyO app.
