The Terra H has the wide clearances you’d expect for this type of bike, with Orbea saying that it provides clearance for 40mm tyres with 5mm extra space all round. That’s good for gravel rides but also leaves lots of clearance for 33mm cyclocross tyres and their accompanying mud.
There’s also bags of room for 28mm tyres and mudguards, with the necessary mounting points for guards and racks built in.
Orbea says that the geometry is designed for rider comfort on a range of surfaces, with built in vibration absorbing areas to soak up bumps, coupled to larger section main tubes for pedalling stiffness. There’s a carbon fork for front end comfort and precise handling and internal cable routing.
