JAIZKIBEL ROUTE

DAY GUIDED ROUTE

Gráfico de carrera

Jaizkibel, a perfect watchtower to sight the Cantabrian Sea. In the past, the whaling ships took advantage of its privileged orography to sight whales and to order the trawlers to capture them. Nowadays, there is a coastal path, called “Talaia”, which twists the steep hillside, very closed to the sea. Indeed, in summer time, the route can be decorated with a swim in one of its secret coves.

Included: guided route+”Hamaiketako” (light lunch)

The best route, yours

We offer cycling travels on demand synthesizing perfectly, through its high quality services, the admiration for the environment where it is located, the Basque Country, and the love for cycling in any way: competition, road, mountain and urban.

The gear

Orbea Orca m20

Gráfico de carrera

Value shouldn’t be a demeaning word; Shimano’s Ultegra 11-speed mechanical groupset continues to offer more bang-for-your-buck than any other group in the component world. With it matched to our all-new OMP carbon fiber Orca frameset, you’ll be guaranteed to have a high performance, road racing bicycle. It’s a bike with plenty of durability for heavy training as well as the lightness and efficiency for serious competition. The new frame is lighter, stiffer, and yet more compliant than any Orca before it. The Orca M20 will help you take your first victory at the cash register. The next one, out on the road, will be up to you.

The gear

ORBEA AVANT M20SI (GF)

Gráfico de carrera

The Avant M20Si is our top-notch Avant Evolution bicycle. Part of its magic is Shimano’s Ultegra Di2 11-speed shifting components. However, the Evolution level carbon fiber frame shares more than good looks with the Avant OMP road bikes; the ride is superb and tames coarse roads for more comfort. And as we’ve said before, the feel and function of the Ultegra Di2 components are so closely matched to their Dura-Ace counterparts that they give away nothing in terms of performance. And the higher stack and closer reach of the Avant in comparison to the Orca makes it a better fit for some. So why suffer on a traditional race bike if you need a slightly more upright fit?

The gear

ORBEA RALLON X30

Gráfico de carrera

Grab your helmet and gear, we don’t have all day! Or maybe we do. The Rallon X30 will encourage you to spend as much time as possible on the trail knocking out the climbs and bombing the descents until you can’t even stand up. It’s built around a triple-butted, hydroformed alloy frameset, and it climbs as well as it descends. That’s saying a lot. The Shimano SLX and RaceFace Ride drivetrain parts won’t let you down. And the 160mm Fox CTD front and rear suspension will soak up the bumps long after your arms have surrendered.

The gear

ORBEA OCCAM 29 H50

Gráfico de carrera

A good mountain bike really just needs to do its job. That is, it needs to be reliable and ready for fun when you are. The Occam H50 is built with hydroformed aluminum for just this reason. Each of the tubes is purposely shaped to deliver strength and stiffness in a lightweight, high performing package. We build it with a Shimano Deore/SLX shift system. And with the FSA triple crank and 10-speed cassette, you’ll have plenty of gearing options to tackle any terrain — up or down. The 105mm rear suspension duties are handled with a Fox CTD rear shock to ensure comfort and control along with the RockShox XC32 100mm suspension fork.
