BARCELONA – GALFER, the Spanish brake parts brand, is factory-supplying its brake discs for the new revolutionary Orbea e-bikes: Orbea Gain for the road and Orbea Rise for mountain biking.

Galfer Bike continues to grow in the bike market, winning the trust of one of the most important international manufacturers in the world of bikes.

In 1998 Galfer began supplying brake pads to several European companies and in 2012 launched its product range for the replacement parts market and now the company has become an official original-equipment supplier for the prestigious bicycle brand Orbea.

Chosen for being synonymous with quality, reliability, durability and performance, Disc Wave® brake discs are being fitted on the new e-bikes launched recently by Orbea: Orbea Gain and Orbea Rise. Both e-bikes have been designed to improve the riding experience, where less “e” means more “bike”.

Advantages of Galfer Disc Waves

The brake system of the Orbea Gain and Orbea Rise models will offer improved performance and efficiency thanks to Galfer state-of-the-art technology, the result of years of research and development that have culminated in the launch of a premium hi-tech product onto the market that can satisfy the needs of both cycling professionals and enthusiasts alike.

Galfer “Disc Wave®” discs are manufactured from stainless steel with a high carbon content using laser cutting techniques. All Galfer brake discs then go through several production processes to create a high-quality product: heat treatment to get the right hardness, paint treatment to stop the appearance of rust and surface treatment to give them a superior initial grip.

ORBEA GAIN (e-road)

The Orbea Gain bike has been completely redesigned to improve the user experience, integration, safety and rolling quality. Orbea has gone to great lengths to hide the battery, making it the lightest, smallest and most discreet battery on the market, which gives it a clean, smart look.

One of the added values offered by Galfer discs relates to the reduced weight of this e-road bike, which helps to make the Orbea Gain a high-end product.

Galfer supplies “Disc Wave®” DB002W ø160mm (99gr) discs for both front and back wheels that contribute to the weight reduction and the significant improvement in the braking, thanks to their enhanced power and improved cooling due to their brake track design. Galfer Wave discs also match the look of the bike perfectly.
