Comfort, efficiency and function - the 2021 Orbea Optima E50 is an urban pedal assist bicycle designed for the masses with a long lasting battery and cargo capacity.

The 2021 Orbea Optima E50 is more than just a get-around-town bike. With a 20 miles per hour Bosch pedal assist motor and battery pack, you’ll be riding more often, more miles and more enthusiastically.

Commuting to work, making quick trips for dinner or taking a casual ride with friends at the park are what you expect from the average urban pedal assist bicycle. The Orbea Optima E50 is not your average bike, though.

Checking in at about 44 pounds, the Orbea Optima E50 is 15-20 pounds lighter than many bikes in its class. The lightweight aluminum alloy frame is not only efficient, the step through frame and upright design create a comfortable ride for just about everyone. Wide, durable tires create a safe and dependable connection to the road or trail.

The Ebikemotion X35 power train is what makes the Orbea Optima E50 truly exceptional, however. Weighing barely eight pounds, the motor and battery help keep the bike less cumbersome while riding. With a range of 25-60 miles depending on the type of riding you're doing, you’ll be able to enjoy long rides as well as short ones. An available range extender battery pack can be added, mounting much like a water bottle cage, to almost double the number of miles and hours you can ride.

Outfitted with a Shimano/Sun Race drivetrain and mechanical disc brakes, the Optima E50 can get you moving efficiently and has plenty of stopping power to handle sudden stops.

As a pedal assist bike, the Orbea Optima E50 still requires that you be an active participant in your ride. Maxing out at 20 miles per hour, the motor will not provide more boost than you’re willing to put into it. If you’re not pedaling, the motor is not assisting. This keeps you engaged in the road as well as keeps your body moving even if the bike is helping out.

Fenders and a rear wheel mounted rack add to the functionality. Water spray from the road is kept at a minimum, keeping your clothes clean during work commutes, while the rack can carry bags or load up panniers to extend your cargo load.

Front and rear lights create visibility and increase safety on the road.

Shipping And Handling Orders up to €50 Ireland or Northern Ireland will incur a €4.99 p+p charge. Orders above €50 are delivered free of charge, except for bulky or heavy items - which include for example: Bikes - variable cost - Kids (€20), Adult Road and Hybrid (€30), MTB and E-Bike (€50), Super-73 (€200); Smart Turbo Trainers and SUP Boards are €9.99.

UK Shipping post Brexit: Shipping Costs are a flat €15 for most items to accomodate extra charges for customs.  If your order is greater than £135, You may need to pay import duties to the courier on items that you receive, if they are manufactured outside of the EU or UK (most items).  The only way that we can proceed currently is that at the moment these will be calculated by our courier - e.g. UPS, and you will be charged before delivery.

Orders outside of Ireland incur an extra shipping charge, depending on location and total cost, and this will be shown at checkout.  Most EU destinations - France, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Belgium are free for orders over €100 but prices for shipping are very high further afield - for example Greece. 

Bikes sent outside of Ireland will be sent as we receive them from the supplier to prevent the chances of the bike being damaged in transit. This will mean the bike will have to be assembled professionally on arrival before use.

We subsidise shipping as much as possible, whilst using reputable shipping companies to try to ensure the best and safest possible delivery to you.

Please note that the couriers will not guarantee the above delivery times but they hold true almost always.

You must inform us within two working days if the goods are lost or damaged in transit so that we can make a prompt claim against the delivery company and correct the problem. Please quote your order number in all correspondence.

None of these terms affect your legal rights and these are not diminished in any way. If any term is held to be invalid under any applicable statute or rule of law, that term is automatically omitted from the terms to minimum extent necessary to comply with the law and without affecting the validity or enforceability of the remainder.

We apologise for this!

If you cancel an order while it is in transit to you, you will be charged a minimum of €7.50 to cover the cost of the return shipping (this is for orders in Ireland).  The cost will be higher outside of Ireland.  We promise that we will only charge you the actual cost to us, there will be no further surcharge.  This cost will be deducted from any refund due for the item(s) returned.
