2017 Orbea Orca M20i-Team

Epic Edition:  £3975  (£4524 RRP)

The Orca M20i-Team with its highest level OMR carbon frameset, and aerodynamically tuned tube shapes, delivers increased speed without any of the penalties associated with many other aero framesets.  

The all-new fork design channels air flow around the front wheel and down tube, while subtly shaped frame tubes reduce drag further without adding unnecessary vertical rigidity, weight or lateral flex that flatter section tubesets are known for.  

The result is a bike that handles and rides like its class leading lightweight predecessor, but with lower drag…resulting in more speed with no drawbacks – especially when paired with the upgraded high-performance wheels of Epic Editions!

Available in a choice of 6 colourways, plus MyO custom colours (at no additional cost).

  • The Orbea Orca M20i-Team features an OMR Monocoque Carbon frame and forks, with a full Shimano Ultegra Di2 22-speed groupset.
  • In our exclusive Epic Edition the standard Vision Trimax 30 wheels have been upgraded to Mavic Ksyrium Pro SL wheels (worth £775)!

Product Description

2017 Orbea Orca

The elegant sweeping shapes, stylish colour ways and deep finishes of the Orbea Orca are what first catch the eye.  But it's the cutting edge technology, together with the drag reducing tube profiles and innovative fork design, of the all new Orcas that provide incredible performance and strength, while the top tube and seat stays are tuned to almost nothing – the primary purpose of their slender shapes: to reduce mass.

Reducing weight is relatively simple - the key to the Orca is balance, with the whole being greater than the sum of the parts – a sub 900g frame with a ride quality that is almost revolutionary.


Orbea uses non-conventional and exclusive carbon fibres to optimise the ratio of weight to stiffness - their OMR and OMP carbon fibres deliver performance and reliability that is class leading (see Technology tab), while their standard modulus OME fibres deliver outstanding performance with the smallest of additional weight.

Ride quality - smoothness - is an elusive blend of elements and careful planning that results in an Orca that is a sheer joy to ride. 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.

The all-new 2017 Orca Aero and Aero Disc framesets add further performance advantages with subtle aerodynamic improvements, that deliver increased speed without any of the penalties associated with many other aero framesets.  A fork design borrowed from Orbea's class-leading Ordu triathlon bikes channels air flow around the front wheel and down tube, while subtly shaped frame tubes reduce drag further without adding unnecessary vertical rigidity, weight or lateral flex that flatter section tubesets are known for.  The result is a bike that handles and rides like its class leading lightweight predecessor, but with lower drag...resulting in more speed with no drawbacks.

The stiffest, lightest, or most aero bike is not the best bike - it's an elusive blend of elements.  That's what Orbea have delivered in the new Orca.

The Orca's racing geometry gets the most of every pedal stroke, efficiently converting every watt into speed. The wheelbase is shorter, allowing for a more responsive bike that take curves with ease and has great traction when you start pedalling and when you accelerate as well, which saves time and power at the same time. Additionally, a low stack and longer reach allow for a more aerodynamic position on the bike, and a more efficient use of energy.

The Orca is available in four variants for 2017:

  • Orca - constructed from OME (standard modulus) carbon fibre, with slightly simplified tube shapes, the standard Orca offers a level of finish and a ride quality that matches or exceeds many of its higher priced competitors.  With a tweaked geometry, the standard Orca offers a slightly more relaxed riding position than its full blown race orientated stable-mates, but one that is still undeniably aimed at fast riding performance.
  • Orca Pro - the frameset is built using Orbea's OMP carbon fibres, which provide a great balance of strength, low weight, and compliance. Geometry is almost identical to the new Orca Aero framesets in terms of rider position (stack and reach).  A true high-performance range of lightweight bikes with sublime handling and responsiveness.
  • Orca Aero - new for 2017, the Orca Aero frameset is constructed entirely from OMR carbon fibres for the very highest ratio of stiffness to weight, while the layup is optimised to reduce fatigue inducing vibration and enhance handling.  Simply stunning performance in all departments!
  • Orca Disc - the new Orca Disc adds very little in frame weight to the new rim-braked OMR Aero frameset, but adds an awful lot in terms of braking control!

For years the flexibility of Orbea's MyO programme has allowed riders to personalize their bikes to an extent that is unique in the industry. Now Orbea have taken it one step further by giving you the option of a fully custom coloured Orca Aero, Disc or Pro frameset that is painted and assembled entirely at their headquarters in Mallabia - in the heart of the Basque Country.

MyO Programme - a massive 1,492,992 colour combinations!

The Orbea Orca is no ordinary racing bike. By matching artisan fabrication with the finest materials, Orca delivers a ride quality that many aspire to but few attain. Likewise, the Orca rider is not a typical cyclist. You demand performance blended with panache and look for details so subtle as to be missed by the masses. Your Orca reflects your desire for excellence. It will be  your closest companion for thousands of kilometers, so let it be a completely unique expression of your love of cycling. Make it truly yours with MyO.


Orbea's in-house manufacturing capabilities and know-how allow them to pay meticulous attention to every step of the MyO process so all you have to do is choose the colours, select your component options and add your name to the top tube.

Designing your dream bike incurs no additional cost for any OMR frameset (covering all Orca Aero and Disc models) and all but two OMP models (M20 Pro and M30 Pro +£199), and your MyO Orca will be delivered to you in an average of four-six weeks after placing your order.  

We can help guide you through the MyO process, and will always give you the best possible advice on components and resulting lead times, as well offering our Everyday Fair Pricing - with no additional costs at all for choosing custom colours!

The MyO programme also offers a limited number of component options, but for full custom builds Epic Cycles simply add to the MyO programme by offering complete component flexibility and personalisation.
