Orbea Laufey: an affordable trail with high-end fun
The Orbea Laufey is one of the most fun bikes in Orbea's catalogue, a hardtail trail bike with 29" wheels and a 140mm fork that ensures enjoyment for any MTB enthusiast, from beginners to those who have been riding for years and want something different.
Orbea Laufey is now available: an economical and very fun trail bike
The recently announced Orbea Laufey range comes in new colours: Dark Green Met, Aluminium Raw and Golden Sand, and the brand has confirmed immediate availability of these models.
When we talk about hardtail bikes, we usually talk about hyper-light and as reactive as possible racing mountain bikes, but the Orbea Laufey is very different. This is not a bike for racing, it's a MTB for having fun, and anyone can have fun on it. Lower and more pronounced geometry, shorter stems and wider handlebars, up to 2.6" tyres and a long fork travel will delight those who are discovering trail riding for the first time and those who want a bike that is different from the pure XCO bikes.
The entry-level price is €1,499 but that doesn't mean it's a basic entry-level bike. The hydroformed aluminium frame shares features and shapes of the Occam full suspension models. Other features include ISCG 05 mounts for quick and easy installation of a chain guide. The dropper seatpost or the 148mm rear Boost allows for shorter chainstays and increased rear wheel resistance.
In terms of geometry, this is a trail bike with a reach approximately 25 mm longer than the previous version (435mm in size M), the steering angle is wider (65.5º), the saddle angle is more vertical (75º) and the chainstays are 5 mm longer (435mm). These are measures that ensure versatility and fun.
