ORBEA Orca M20TEAM-D 2019
|Options||Size: 57cm; Colour: Satin Black/Red; In Stock|
Showcasing Orbea's top level OMR carbon frameset, Orca M20TEAM-D can be summed up in three words: fast, light, responsive.
With the heritage, knowhow, quality and looks you desire, this brilliant road rocket is available in six stunning "off the shelf" colour options. It is also available to personalise through MyO, Orbea's custom bike programme. Choose your favourite colours and add your name if you wish. Fit options, besides the frame size, are handlebar width, stem length and crank length. All of this comes at no additional cost. You can also change or upgrade the components. See our Custom Bikes page for further details.
- Lightweight and smooth:
Orca uses the most technologically advanced carbon construction to make the mst sophisticated frame possible. The top-level Orca OMR blends laser cut Toray T700, T800 and M40J carbon in a unique, complex and painstaking process to reduce weight and enhance ride quality.
The seat stays of the new Orca are thinner, the cross-sections and diameters reduced to provide graceful support for the seat tube and nothing more. The hybrid square-round shaping of the seat tube places material only where needed, a 27.2mm seat post offers the lowest weight and smoothest ride. The natural flex of the carbon layup in the seat stays and the minimal bulk of the top tube deliver a dynamic, smooth ride, enhancing comfort and control over rough surfaces.
- Dynamical frame stiffness:
The large majority of torsional and lateral loads are handled by the lower half of any frame. The headtube, downtube and chainstays must resist twisting and transmit the power generated by your legs to the rear wheel. There is no doubt about it, this resistance to flex translates directly to more watts on the road. Large diameter cross sections increase efficiency and rigidity without adding weight since the material thickness can be reduced while maintaining the same strength. The carbon forming technique eliminates traditional air bladders and allows for better compaction and less material while maintaining strength.
- Ride Quality:
The stiffest bike available is not the best bike. Ride quality - smoothness - is an elusive blend of elements and careful planning that results in an Orca that is a joy to ride. This is a concept that Orbea have borrowed from the World Cup-winning Alma mountain bike. Studying the way the frame behaves under a rider's weight is beneficial to tuning the way bumps or vibrations are transmitted through the frame. The efficiency of the bottom bracket area contributes the feel that the bike is responsive, that power transfer is instantaneous. The natural flex patterns created by the carbon layup and structure in the top tube and seat stays deliver an efficient, smooth ride that feels like floating over rough roads. The sensation is subtle - but it is noticeable and can be tested. And at the end of a gruelling climb it could make the difference between the podium and the consolation prize.
- Freeflow fork:
The movement of the spokes, rims and tyre - against the flow of the wind as the front wheel spins - creates a high pressure and high drag zone between the fork legs. The Freeflow design takes the legs away from this area to reduce pressure and turbulence, resulting in better airflow and a faster bike.
- Tapered headtube:
The Orca features an oversized, tapered headtube (1 1/8" - 1.5") to add stiffness and steering precision.
- Internal Direct Cable Routing:
Helps protect the cables, reduces friction, and enhances durability. Thanks to internal routing and a fully a sealed cable system with Teflon coated inner wires and a slick polyester sleeve, the risk of contamination is lessened and friction is reduced by up to 25%. DCR produces a lighter and more precise feel at the levers - function, simplicity, and tidiness are paramount. Less traditional cable housing also means that system weight is reduced.
The Orbea EC/DC or Electronic Circuit/Direct Cable system is compatible with electronic or mechanical shifting - the choice is yours to make. EC/DC relies on built-in pathways that ease the installation of cables or wires and results in streamlined, flawless shifting performance.
