THE ORCA RIDER
There are plenty of great bikes that offer flexibility, a relaxed, neutral position and mellow handling. Orca is not one of them – Orca is designed for the rider who has already ridden 6000kms in February and can somehow sustain 500 watts in the middle of winter. The rider who wants their legs chiseled directly from the local mountains, the rider whose ready for the next challenge.
Orca is designed for professionals and those dedicated to taking on the next hill or the next sprint. Orca is for riders who eat, sleep and dream about watts and training and the next race or cycling adventure
THE ORCA GEOMETRY
Orca Racing Geometry is born from 100 years of design. Its a perfected balance of responsiveness and stability.
The position is aggressive to maximise body aerodynamics and efficiency. Handling is superb, both precise and intuitive.
The angles and dimensions are all considered across sizes to ensure more power on the road no matter the riders measurement. That means every rider has the chance to deliver more power and more speed.
External forces like terrain and road surface have an effect on both control and traction. To control the forces the Orca have refined the seat stays, reducing the cross sections and diameter and creating a thinner tubing so to smooth the road feel without compromising the rigidity. The natural flex patterns created by the carbon layout and minimal bulk of the top tube and seat stays delivers a dynamic smooth ride. The sensation of floating over the road is the result.
Speaking of carbon ... Orca uses the most technologically advanced carbon construction in its most sophisticated frameset.
Orca M20 Team model features Orbea's OMR (Orbea Monocoque Race) carbon fiber construction, which represents Orbea's top tier frames. It utilizes the most meticulous blend of high-modulus, low and standard carbon fiber to reach an optimum balance of performance, durability, and weight. This works out to create an ultra-lightweight frame with a voracious appetite for racing
Time consuming layering processes and the use of lazer cut prepeg carbon sheets translate into a frame that offers its rider both stiffness and smoothness. That means you can spend longer more satisfying hours on the saddle.
DYNAMIC STRUCTURAL STIFFNESS
The large majority of torsional and lateral loads are handles by the lower spine of the frame. The headtube, downtube and chainstays are shaped to resist twisting and transmit power to the rear of the wheel. There is no doubt about it, large cross-sections and resistance flex in the bottom of the frame translate directly to more watts on the road and a sensation of instantaneous power transfer.
