Video: Orbea Fox Enduro Team Takes On EWS Pietra Ligure

Sep 21, 2020
by Orbea  

The second to last race of the 2020 Enduro World Series was held in Pietra Ligure, a place synonymous with difficult terrain – and perfect for the Orbea FOX Enduro Team.

Five stages pushed riders to the limit, full of ambushes and rugged encounters like few other stops on the circuit. In short, it was a wild Mediterranean dream. Uninhibited terrain emphasized the importance of bike settings. Sure, the right settings can make a good ride better, but fine-tuning the FOX forks, shocks, wheels, and tires would make or break this entire race. Showing no mercy, Pietra Ligure quickly became a litmus test for our riders.

Sit back and enjoy our latest video and experience this fantastic event through the eyes of our team.













MENTIONS: @orbea / @raceface / @foxfactory / @Maxxis / @crankbrothers / @Galfer / @shimano

 Interesting to see (at 2:34) pro team mechanics using gorilla tape to set up their tubeless wheels. Guess I'm not the only one who thinks all the tubeless kits they're selling are just overpriced marketing hype! Razz

Another small (and perhaps more questionable) money-saving tubless tip: cut the presta valves out of your old tubes. If you have a good quality one (ie. bonded to the metal well and a nice, thick rubber) they hold up just fine. Valve cores aren't removeable, but I don't personally find that to be a big deal as I'm not usually trying to add more sealant away of my home workbench.

 The use both Wink . Gorilla tape is just to make it stronger in case that spoke breaks, so it doesn't puncture the tape so easily.

 if you get schwalbe tubes (even 26 ones are fine or bmx ones), they have removable cores and are usually much cheaper (even new) than tubeless valves.

 Orbeas are super impressive finish wise, especially in person. The aluminum Occams look incredible. I'll bet Damien is pretty thrilled to be riding Orbea!

 One of the best bikes out there. Very under rated
