About us

  • Orbea today.

    We've always looked at the future, evolving and taking up new challenges. Now we're much more than just a factory of bikes: we're style, freedom, escape and, of course, sport.

  • We're proud of our past.

    • - Since 1840 -

      We've been witnesses to the events of three centuries.

      Our company was first established in Eibar, Gipuzkoa, as a family business, under the name "Orbea Hermanos". In the beginning, we operated in the weapons industry, which had a long history in the region, and in the machine-tool sector.

    • - 1920-1969 -

      We started making bikes.

      Our factory produced the first bicycles, and in the late 1960s we grew into a cooperative that was part of the Mondragon Corporation.

    • - 1970-1989 -

      We came to be associated with competition sports.

      We set up the first Orbea road cycling team and the MTB team, with celebrated victories like Perico Delgado's at the Vuelta a España 1985.

    • - 1990-2002 -

      We started selling bikes at the global level.

      In addition to the numerous victories by the Euskaltel-Euskadi team, our continuous support to new teams filled this decade with great experiences.

    • - 2003-2011 -

      Product innovation.

      Launch of the first Orca, Alma, new product lines like helmets, cycling apparel, Orca Triathlon, etc. The Olympic gold medals of Samuel Sánchez and Julien Absalon, and Jean-Christophe Péraud's silver in Beijing 2008.

    • - 2012 and beyond -

      We've changed.

      Although today Orbea has little in common with the original firm, the spirit, principles and commitment to quality are exactly the same.

  • Sharing experiences.

    We believe in you..

    We believe in people who think the world is their field of play. We believe in people who, rather than challenging a rival, challenge nature.

  • We are Orbea.

    Our values are feelings everyone at Orbea lives by; our values make us who we are.

  • Sustraiak.

    Badira samurtzen gaituzten gauzak.

    Sustraiak erruz itsatsita ditugu gurean, ibilian-ibilian mundua txiki bihurtu bazaigu ere. Badira hor zehar arrazak, erlijioak, koloreak, hizkuntzak. Irekita ditugu begiak, zabalik besoak, ikusminak jota barrenak. Gure mundua da.

    Baditugu hemen samurtzen gaituzten gauzak. Larreak, ideiak, hitzak, ametsak. Oinetan daramagu beti garra. Zenbaitetan, mihian indarra. Eta zainetan, euskara. Gure etxea da.
