From the Heart of the Pyrenees
Orbea Design is based on what we consider the four essential elements of bicycle design: the riders, the state-of-the-art technology, the creation process and the trends. Our aim is to make life easier for you, to find the solution to your needs. We don’t believe in design for design’s sake, and we don’t invent unnecessary technologies. We create innovation, we create solutions to adapt to you more and more as time goes by. That’s where our value lies. Monocoque is a technology that provides a lifetime guarantee for your frame. Who else can offer you something like that? That’s technology applied to life.
It may seem odd to think of Rolf Prima as having a traditionalist side, but they do. They believe in technology over marketing and build quality over production levels. It is more than paired spokes and other technologies. It is their attention to every aspect of the process. From the hand building to answering the phone to treating every customer as their only customer – that’s the Rolf Prima difference.

The Radial is a light and highly technical cycling shoe.
It features a lightweight resistant upper constructed of microfiber with a mesh lining in slip-lasted construction. This type of construction yields a lightweight shoe without requiring a mid-sole board and allows the upper to wrap around your foot providing a sock-like fit without irritating seams. The microfiber upper is extremely breathable and the mesh lining increases air-flow to keep your feet cool and dry. A soft padded collar with additional clearance for the ankle offers freedom of movement without putting pressure on the sides of the foot. The anatomically designed padded external heel counter holds your foot securely preventing slipping of the heel in the shoe. A lightly padded tongue is relieved at the ankle to avoid creating a pressure point. Closure is by three Velcro straps secured with stainless steel d-rings. The CX Carbon Fiber sole is constructed with nine layers of Toray MR60 Carbon Fiber.
