In 1840, forebearers, the Orbea Brothers, opened a small workshop in the heart of Basque Country in Eibar. With relentless work and ambition, the workshop grew to become the first factory in a city eventually dedicated to industry.
Over time, the factory became a leader amongst its peers, pioneering many innovative products and manufacturing procedures. Since that time Orbea maintained the innovative spirit of the Eibar factory, constantly adapting the products for our customers.
When times changed the business of Orbea used their innate knowledge of steel tubing to build bicycles of all types, from the premium to the most basic.
The cycle of progress never ends with the team of passionate individuals and champions who constantly innovate and adapt to the changing marketplace and rider needs. The best of Orbea is always in their work, and because of it Orbea are always seeking new ways to improve and make the best bicycles on Earth.
