Advanced Dynamics enables us to simulate the interactions between the bike and rider to create suspensions that perform in all conditions and terrains.
Advanced Dynamics models new suspension platforms with a virtual rider that exerts typical rider-induced forces onto the pedals, saddle, and handlebars. We can shape the simulations with different users – height, body weight, riding style – and we can generate all different types of terrain. This process allows us to optimize our suspension designs before the prototyping and field-testing phases of development. You’ll get a dynamic suspension system that can be easily tuned for variable trail conditions and with a leverage rate curve that is matched to the spring and damper for maximum performance.
Our XC Geometry creates bikes that are tuned for ultimate performance, where speed and efficiency are paramount.
Our XC Geometry is designed around going fast. Period. We adjust head tube angles to create bikes that balance razor sharp steering for twisty trails with stability for high speed descents. And since proper fore-aft balance and pedaling efficiency are important, we build our XC bikes with seat tube angles that ensure an optimum position on the bike. Short chainstays maintain a lively feel and offer effortless maneuverability on technical terrain no matter the wheel size. We’ve also reduced standover clearance so that you can feel comfortable about stepping off the pedals on uneven surfaces.
The advantages of monocoque technology are numerous. It gives us freedom of design, perfection of form, durability, and fatigue resistance.
Monocoque guarantees a carbon structure with optimum performance and long term reliability, and it’s the only way we’ve ever done it. We mold the one-piece structures so that each tube is connected to the next, with continuous fibers through each critical juncture. As you ride, your bike will be subjected to a variety of forces – tension, compression, torsion, etc. Our monocoque frames allow optimal distribution of these forces over the entire structure because of the perfect fusion of the composite materials. This is why we can offer a lifetime warranty. Monocoque assures a stable structure with properties that are guaranteed not to change over time.
Direct Cable Routing is the shortest distance between two points. Our system relies on reducing drag and contamination for the best shifting performance.
We've created and patented the DCR system to route mechanical shift cables in the most efficient way. The goal is to ensure that you get the best performance. The DCR system provides a sealed inner wire for the complete length of each cable. Without contamination and the higher drag inherent in traditional housing, DCR reduces friction in the system by up to 25%. You'll have a lighter and more precise feel at the levers. We make sure that the cables integrate cleanly with the design of the frame rather than looking like an afterthought. DCR is a system where function, simplicity, and tidiness are paramount.
UFO Technology eliminates pivot points to create a lighter, stiffer rear suspension without compromising performance.
We use UFO Technology when performance means everything - where the difference between winning and losing is a matter of seconds or a matter of a few extra grams. UFO stands for U Flexion Orbea. This technology eliminates pivot points in the rear suspension to create a lighter, stiffer system. The carbon layup and tube shapes are specifically engineered to provide the flex necessary for the full range of movement required by the suspension. UFO is lighter, stronger, and more efficient. It does all this without compromise. Are you ready to surprise your rivals?
