Founded in 1840 in the Basque Country, Orbea was at first a firearm manufacturer but left the industry in the 1930s to make bicycles “with all guns blazing.” Tour de France stage champion Mariano Cañardo brought the brand into the spotlight which soon led to Orbea being recognized as a household name. In 2016, the company maintains the same passion for bike manufacturing and creates products for every requirement, from mountains bikes to lightweight Grand Tour racing bicycles or urban bikes. Katu is part of the latter category and it’s specifically designed for city streets and commuting.

The compact and minimalist design is not only stylish, but ensures optimum agility while riding through narrower streets or tight corners. Since its also lightweight, it’s easier to transport and to store, which are crucial features for any urban rider. The innovative load distribution system allows the owner to carry heavy bags in the front basket without any effect on steering. Katu is available in four versions, all with 20’’ wheels and each available in four colorways. If you want to check out the technical specs or to order your own Katu, visit the official website. Prices for this urban bike bike start at $499.
