With a unique look and a “roadie” feel, the 2018 Orbea Carpe 20 helps you experience the freedom of the road even in a crowded city. With the same frame of Carpe 10 just with a few changes in componentry, the Carpe 20 uses an alloy frame and Orbea aluminum disc fork to stay lightweight and comfortable. Its unique shape and eye-catching paint job guarantee that you will turn heads on the road as you ride by.
While the Carpe 10 features a 10-speed cassette, the Carpe 20 uses a 9-speed cassette for easy shifting as you head up steep climbs or want to power down descents. Shimano M315 Hydraulic Disc brakes ensure that no matter how fast you are going, you can easily stop thanks to their power, reliability, and quick responsiveness.
You can relax in the saddle of the Carpe 20 with its slack geometry for a comfortable ride. The bike has a flat, raised handlebar for an upright position and its 32mm tires let you ride smoothly over rough terrain with extra stability and confident handling. The bike uses ergo grips for a tight, comfortable hold on the handlebar and a firm, leather-style that you can settle into for a fun ride. The bike is also fitted with mounts for both racks and fenders providing useful utility.
