THE LIGHTEST AND MOST CAPABLE RACING BIKE
Performance, technology and style have always been cornerstones of cycling. We may not compete but we love the feel of a racing bike – an Orca that is light, fast and beautiful. Professional athletes, weekend warriors, Strava hunters and recreational riders all have similar aspirations – we love the machine as much as the lifestyle.
ORBEA MONOCOQUE CARBON
We use the most technologically advanced carbon construction available to make the most sophisticated frame possible – A complex and painstaking process with results you will appreciate in the saddle.
Not many bike companies have the research and development capabilities of an Engineering School at their fingertips. Orbea works directly with specialists at Mondragon University in the Basque Country to analyze and test aerodynamic concepts.
The downtube, seat tube and seat stay sections of the new Orca are ovalized and subtly flattened for a 10% drag reduction over the previous version.
ORBEA ROAD RACING GEOMETRY
Orca Racing Geometry is born from almost 100 years of designing road racing bikes and is the perfect balance of responsiveness and stability. The position is aggressive to maximize body aerodynamics and efficiency. Handling is precise and intuitive. Angles and dimensions are considered carefully across a range of sizes to put more power to the road with every pedal stroke, and more power means more speed.
How can ergonomics help you ride further? Unlike a racing position that is focused on aerodynamics, an endurance position results in a bike that is easier to ride and increases stamina. A shorter cockpit and higher handlebar maximize rider comfort – and more comfort means longer and faster rides.
