Either you're looking to upgrade or looking for your first sensational bike. The Orca M30 is an incredible way to enter the carbon bike market. The specs and what they mean are written below. But if you want to read between the jargon to really understand why the Orca M30 is a great choice, the first thing to know is that its fast, easy to handle, and reliable.
Orbea have been making frames for 100 years. They're committed to creating you the perfect bike, whatever your needs and wether you're looking for a frame to take on endurance journeys, or to join a crit race, the Orca will not disappoint.
With a 105 group-set you'll happily have plenty of gears to get over the hills.
THE ORCA GEOMETRY
Orca Racing Geometry is born from 100 years of design. It's 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 frame set.
Orca uses the most technologically advanced carbon construction to make the most sophisticated fame possible - A complex and painstaking process with results you will appreciate on the road. The premier Orca OMR frame blends Toray T700, T800 and M40J Firbres. Prepeg carbon sheets are laser cut to minimize excess materials and overlap.
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.
