The world is continually evolving. Cyclists, spaces, and needs have reached a turning point. Katu is a platform that is especially sensitive to the new way in which we move about the city, designed for both those who want to get started in urban cycling and those who are already very experienced or even professionals. Practicality, style, environmental friendliness, and urban coexistence are the main pillars of the Katu. Enjoy discovering everything about the Katu, from the general concept to the attention paid to every last detail.
The Katu features a lightweight and durable aluminum frame in a compact size that makes it perfect for storing indoors or taking on the train. The geometry provides an upright riding position so you stay aware of what's going on around you, and a stable ride so you can gracefully avoid obstacles. An internally geared rear hub offers the advantages of multiple speeds in a simpler and easier to maintain package. A bunch of accessories enhance the Katu's versatility and utility, not to mention its fun factor. A front cargo basket makes hauling gear or delivering packages a breeze, while its position above the front keeps the bike's center of gravity low and which helps improve handling. Integrated lights (one on the front basket, one on the rear fender) help you see and be seen when riding at night, and the SKS full fenders keep you dry when the weather turns south. And in a considerate touch that won't go unnoticed, Orbea included a double-leg kickstand that keeps the bike upright when parked, even when it's loaded down with cargo. It all adds up to a simple yet capable bike, perfect for the needs of modern urban life.
