Orbea is a bicycle manufacturer in Mallabia, Basque Country.
It is part of the Mondragón Cooperative Corporation and Spain's largest bicycle manufacturer. Orbea designs and builds bicycles, with some of the higher-cost bikes being made in Portugal but all the others made at the Orbea factory in Mallabia; the steel-framed bikes are made of Columbus tubing
Orbea has previously sponsored and supplied bikes to teams, including the now-defunct Euskaltel-Euskadi professional team in the Basque area of Spain and the Herring Gas team in the USA. Samuel Sánchez rode an Orbea Orca Carbon to win the road race at the Beijing Olympics and Julien Absalon won the mountain bike gold on an Orbea Alma. Craig Alexander, three time Ironman World Triathlon Champion (2008, 2009, 2011), rode an Orbea Ordu in his first 2 wins.
Orbea also manufactures and assembles bikes in China
