The Avant M10D is the flagship of Orbea's endurance road bikes. This long-distance lover is perfect for those riders who like epic all-day adventures in the saddle. The bike features a lightweight, comfortable carbon frame and fork. Shimano's Ultegra Di2 components take care of shifting, and add the confident braking of hydraulic discs to the equation. Parts from FSA, Vittoria, and Selle Italia add even more performance, and a Shimano factory wheelset finishes things off.

The BMC Granfondo GF01 Disc Ultegra Di2 combines the purpose built carbon fiber endurance frame with Shimano disc brakes so you can go fast, and stop even faster! Disc brakes have been proven in mountain biking for years, with an even lighter bike with carbon fiber 3T components and carbon fiber DT Swiss wheels these brakes become even more effective.

The Specialized Roubaix SL4 Sport SRAM Disc is an endurance road bike that is packed with innovative features. The backbone of this bike is the lightweight carbon frame and fork, which are fitted with vibration-reducing inserts. These inserts help fight rider fatigue. SRAM components, including the new S-series hydraulic disc brakes, grace this machine. Parts from FSA and Specialized round out the spec, and an AXIS disc wheelset finishes things off.

The Cannondale Synapse Disc 3 Ultegra is an aluminum-framed road bike with endurance geometry and features. With a smooth Shimano Ultegra drivetrain and parts from FSA, Formula, Maddux and Schwalbe, this bike will leave you fresh at the end of a long day in the saddle.

EC/DC: Electronic or mechanical shifting? Our system ensures that you can be the one to decide. With the introduction of electronic systems, shifting your bike is as effortless as a mouse click, and the performance borders on surgical precision. That said, mechanical systems are better than ever before and can offer similar world-class performance. The Orbea EC/DC or Electronic Circuit/Direct Cable system allows either, and the choice is yours to make. EC/DC relies on built-in pathways that allow the installation of traditional mechanical cables or electronic wires for the connections between your shifters and derailleurs. Either way the goal is streamlined design and supreme shifting performance.
Tapered Head Tube: The Tapered Head Tube is the foundation that provides stiffness and stability for precise handling in all conditions. The forces acting on a head tube can be extreme, especially at high speeds or over rough surfaces. Our Tapered Head Tube provides improved rigidity and steering precision. All of our bikes that use the tapered system get a 1-1/8 to 1-1/2” bearing system. We’ve found that this dimension offers the best balance of weight, function, and durability. The Tapered Head Tube is also a principle element of our frame designs, whether in carbon or hydroformed aluminium, that provides greater stiffness and stability by allowing larger tube junctures at the front of the bike where stresses are high.
Disc or Rim Brakes: The Avant is unique in that it is fully compatible with traditional rim brakes as well as disc brakes. The advantage for the user is the choice. Products will be offered with both options, and the ability to make a swap from one brake style to the other is easy and simple. The frame is designed so that mounting hardware for the disc brakes is removable, leaving nothing but discreet, threaded bosses, with nothing to detract from the visual aesthetic of the bike.
Lifetime Warranty: Orbea provides a lifetime warranty on every frame. We have total confidence in our products.
Our constant efforts to ensure that Orbea bicycles are of the highest quality enable us to offer you the Orbea Lifetime Warranty. It guards against defects in materials and workmanship. Your warranty is activated using the unique registration number you'll find on the down tube. Once the process is complete, your bike will automatically receive its lifetime warranty. We'll have a record of your bike information should it get stolen, and you'll be able to take part in our drawings and events. You'll also have access to the latest news about Orbea, its sponsored teams and riders, and new product development.

Optimized ride qualities in carbon products thanks to BMC's Tuned Compliance Concept (TCC).

With a neat combination of different carbon fibers and their alignment, and by applying stepped tube profiles, we achieve increased vertical compliance while maintaining high levels of lateral and torsional stiffness. The TCC zones on the frame, fork and seatpost boost the comfort rating noticeably. TCC significantly improves the ride experience by slowing the onset of rider fatigue and through precision handling and efficient power transmission.

- FACT 8r carbon frame with Endurance Road Geometry, Zertz and tapered headtube; paired with a full carbon
monocoque fork for the perfect blend of stiffness, compliance and light weight
- Espoir Elite 25c tires with BlackBelt puncture protection allow for a smooth, fast, and confident ride
- Specialized Roubaix Tape w/ 2.5 gel pads makes for an incredibly comfortable front-end, on any terrain, for
any length of ride
- SRAM full hydraulic disc brakes offer precise braking performance in any conditions while 10-speed shifters
with DoubleTap technology make for simple, intuitive shifting and reach adjustment for perfect fit
- Romin Comp Gel saddle, with hollow Cr-Mo rails, delivers the same ergonomically designed, scientifically-
proven Body Geometry features that allow riders to deliver power in high-performance positions

Rider Profile:
The ideal first road bike for someone looking for comfort, performance, versatility and value in equal measure.

Synapse Alloy is:
Equipped with disc brakes on several models for great stopping and control.
SAVE PLUS micro-suspension provides a ride that is uncannily smooth.
Rear rack mounts and extra clearance for fenders adds commuter versatility to the Synapse line.


SAVE PLUS Alloy Micro-Suspension
By flattening and butting the chain stays and triaxially forming the seat stays, we create a rear stay assembly that allows significant deflection vertically to absorb road shock and vibration, while staying extremely rigid laterally for power transfer and confident cornering.

Endurance Geometry
Compared with our Elite race geometry, the Synapse geometry features a taller head tube (2-2.5cm taller), gently sloping top tube, slightly relaxed head angle and longer wheelbase. This combination provides a more upright riding position and a lively, yet stable feel. It’s confidence inspiring and relaxing but avoids the sluggish feel and awkward handling of many “comfort” road bikes.

Optimized 6061 Alloy Construction
Cannondale’s legendary double-pass smooth welds join optimally shaped taper-butted tubes for a great combination of svelte light weight, stiffness and durability.

Carbon Bladed Fork
Carbon fork blades with integrated SAVE features provide additional comfort and sharp handling.

BB30 System
Cannondale invented BB30 13 years ago to take crank and frame performance to the next level and it has become THE industry standard for stiffness and light weight. Found on both the 105 and Tiagra equipped models.

- Rack and Fender Mounts
- Subtle, understated rack and fender mounts add versatility.
- Disc Brakes
- The Synapse Alloy is the first Cannondale road bike to feature disc brakes for great stopping power and
exceptional control.
