Speed Company's Orbea Oiz with electronic suspensions
The Orbea Leatt Speed Company team has just started their season at the Mediterranean Epic and there we saw for the first time their new Orbea Oiz 2024 equipped with Rock Shox Flight Attendant electronic suspensions.
The Speed Company premieres the new electronic suspensions Rock Shox Flight Attendant on their Orbea Oiz 2024
The Germans Georg Egger and Lukas Baum have decided once again to repeat the formula that has given them such good results the last two seasons. Starting their season in Spain to arrive again at 100% at the Absa Cape Epic 2024, where they will try to repeat the victory of 2022.
And it was at the Mediterranean Epic where we saw the new material with which the Speed Company couple will compete this season. They repeat with the Orbea Oiz as the main mountain bike, but there are important changes in its setup. Like the change of wheels, now they mount Fulcrum instead of the characteristic Bike Ahead they chose years ago, and the change in suspensions and drivetrain.
For 2024, the Orbea Leatt Speed Company seems to be one of the official teams of SRAM and Rock Shox and we say seems because although it has not been made official it has been one of the chosen by the American manufacturer to mount the new electronic suspensions Flight Attendandt that have not yet been officially presented.
So far we had only seen these electronic suspensions in official SRAM teams of the World Cup and a few days ago also carried by Peter Sagan in his Epic. But it is the first time we see them mounted on an Orbea.
Although the forks of Egger and Baum look completely black and without graphics, there are few doubts about the model they mount since the electronic control unit is easily recognizable on the left bar. The same electronic head that can be seen on the rear shock absorber.
In addition, the team again wears a spectacular equipment in purple tones from the new Leatt endurance collection. A design that has been one of the most applauded in the last two editions of the Cape Epic.
