Un poco Loki.
In Norse mythology, Loki is a trickster god. He is a shape shifter and in different stories he assumes multiple forms.
Loki is a different kind of bike. And instead of saying it’s tailored for one type of rider, we’re going to go ahead and claim it’s the perfect fun trail bike everyone will enjoy.
HYDROFORMEDWe manipulate the shapes and wall-thickness of our aluminum tubing to increase strength and resistance to unwanted flex. Many of the tubes are butted to save weight in the middle of the tubes, away from the stress of the joints and the weld zones. Using aluminum technologies as advanced as our carbon manufacturing ensures our aluminum bikes are never second-best.
BOOST430mm chain stays make Loki quick, stiff and responsive. Increasing rear axle spacing to 148mm over the 142mm standard moves the chainline outboard by 3mm, increasing the space available at the bottom bracket.
DIGITIt’s not a dropper post – it’s a quick adjust post. The patented Orbea Digit Post makes it significantly quicker and easier to stop and adjust saddle height during a ride.
DOUBLE DUTY 27+ / 29Double Duty packs two bikes into one platform. Choose between 27+ and 29 wheel sizes in the same frame. 27+ tires are wider than traditional tires and are much higher volume, meaning they can be run at lower pressures. This allows Plus tires to go where regular tires can’t, easily handling light mud and snow or sand, greatly expanding the terrain you can cover.
