Now in its third generation, Orbea has revamped its GAIN electric road bike by reducing weight and adding Mahle’s latest X20 electronic drivetrain, tipping the scales at an impressive 25.3 pounds (11.5kg).
Additionally, Orbea has tweaked the GAIN’s geometry by increasing stack height and reducing the reach, while also increasing tire clearance up to 35mm, giving the bike off-road, gravel capabilities as well.
The revamped GAIN also gets front and rear LED lights, neatly concealing them in the front computer mount and rear integrated seatpost clamp.
When it comes to assistance, alongside the standard HMI motor controller that fits flush in the GAIN’s toptube, Mahle’s optional remote controllers are mounted on the handlebars, allowing riders to shift between modes without having to take their hands off the bars.
Like the previous X35 motor, the new X20 also features Mahle’s Smartbike app, which can be used to adjust motor map settings and monitor and analyze energy consumption. It can even link to the rider’s heart rate monitor, while full ride data can also be recorded through the app as well.
Regarding power, the X20 motor promises 55Nm of torque with a top-speed that’s limited to 25km/h in the EU, UK and Australia, and 20mph in the US.
The new Orbea GAIN is available in six models, four road and two all-road options that are equipped with a SRAM XPLR 1x groupset, with prices ranging from $6,400 to $11,500.
Here’s a breakdown of the models:
