Orbea Orca

A perfectly balanced bike for any type of ‘road’

The brand new Orbea Orca line-up may well be the most balanced range of road bikes on the market today.  As responsive and agile as most all-out light weight premium race bikes, as light as most dedicated climbing bikes, as stiff as many top level sprinting machines and as comfortable as any endurance bike – all with ample tyre clearance for the roughest of surfaces, including forays off smoothly paved roads and onto dirt or gravel.

On top of the pure riding and performance elements, the Orbea Orca is both practical and more customisable than any competitor bike – with free custom paint at not extra cost on most models.

‘One of the most exciting new bikes for 2020.  Wonderfully accomplished all-round ride, great smart design features with it’ BikeRadar

The Orbea Orca aims to be the ultimate bike for all performance-minded riders that are looking to take on a full range of real world riding conditions – whether pro or amateur, on the flat or up in the mountains, over short all-out distances or all day epics, and on all types of surface that roughly qualify as “roads”.  It takes all of the latest developments in road bike technology and combines them is a stunning all-round package.

RANGE OPTIONS

The Orca range is available in three variants – they all share the same geometry and underlying design principles, but have different carbon tubing types, subtly different aero profiling, and different component options; offering a range of price points to meet all budgets, with slightly different riding characteristics to meet different rider priorities.

ORCA

The Orca’s frame is constructed from high modulus Orca OMR carbon fibre, while the fork has OMR carbon fibre blades bonded to a strong alloy steerer.  The frame has slightly thicker more resilient tube walls than the superlight Orca Limited, making it a little more resistant to stone chips if venturing off onto unpaved roads.  With clearance for tyres up to 35mm, the frameset offers true all-road capability.

The handlebars and stem feature wind-cheating internal cable routing, while the seatpost has a standard 27.2mm round section, offering great reliability, practicality and easy upgrade options.

The all-new Orca is 10% more compliant than the previous Orca OMR Team and far stiffer in the power transfer areas, as well as lighter, than the 2020 Orca OME (standard modulus) frameset.

ORCA TEAM

The Orca Team has exactly the same frame construction as the standard Orca, but also features a full carbon fork for lighter weight. The new Orca Team offers 5% lower weight than the previous Orca OMR , with the same lateral stiuffness for optimal power transfer, with vertical compliance (aka comfort) increased by up to 10%.

The component levels are a little higher than in the standard Orca, again offering lower weights, while also being a little more refined.

Full custom paint is a no cost option on all Orca Team models, using Orbea’s easy to use MyO (My Orbea) system – which we can guide you through if you would like some assistance.  The MyO system also allows you to change some of the components, although we are able to customise things much more widely for you in our workshop.

ORCA LIMITED

The Orca Limited’s frame and fork are constructed from ultra high modulus OMX fibres for lower weight – the finer less elastic fibres also add a little more stiffness to key areas of the frame for the ultimate in responsiveness, with only the slightest reduction in vertical compliance.  The Orca Limited can accommodate, and has been optimised for, tyres up to 32mm and beyond, delivering high comfort levels in this all-out performance machine.

Components are at the premium level, and the seatpost moves to a truncated aerofoil shape. The frame tubing profiles also offer enhanced aerodynamics over the OMR models, with the fork being more fully aero-integrated into the downtube.

As with the Orca Team, full custom MyO paint is a no cost option on all Limited models.

No matter which Orca model you choose, they all share the same underlying principle:  that rider comfort means a fresher rider, which in turn to greater speed, enables longer distances, and allows for riding over rougher roads.

‘Given the versatility of this bike, you may be wondering if it’s a case of “jack of all trades, master of none”. In this case, the full, original and oft-forgotten quote actually sums up the bike much better: “A jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one”. An N+1 killer.’ CyclingTips

The Orca sits right alongside the Orca Aero in the Orbea range range; borrowing many of its wind cheating features and much of its bottom bracket stiffness for power transfer, but with lower weight, greater levels of comfort and larger tyre clearances.

FEATURES

ICR:  Internal Cable Routing is carefully routed along the cleanest and most practical path under the stem and through the head tube, with no rub or rattle, and is optimized for both traditional and electronic shifting systems.

ICR:  Integration and clean lines are implemented without any impact on practicality.  Stem adjustment and handlebar swaps are straightforward, and the cockpit is easy to partially dismantle for traveling with a bike box.

SEATPOST CLAMP: the seat post clamp is smoothly integrated into the frame, decreasing the likelihood of contamination and increasing aerodynamics. Plus, it looks sleek too.

HANDLEBAR PROFILE: The Orca and Orca Team models offer a choice of handlebar profiles.  The Riser option features a 20mm rise and 5mm sweep back. that delivers an endurance focused rider position, and is the standard option on all Orca models.  The Competition option is a compact road bike handlebar, that delivers a more traditional road racing position, and is the standard option on all Orca Team models.

MyO Custom Colours

Orbea’s MyO (My Orbea) system is unique in the industry – offering the option of a fully custom coloured frameset on all Orca Team and Limited models, at no additional cost, that is painted and assembled to order at their headquarters in Mallabia, in the heart of the Basque Country.

The on-line MyO custom design app is straightforward and slick, offering a massive number of the frame colour combinations, and is fun to use.  The app will also give you an indication of lead times, which will be a few weeks longer than for standard colours – once your order is placed and enters Orbea’s painting schedule we will be able to provide you with more accurate production timings.

The MyO programme also offers a limited number of component options, but for individual tailoring or full bespoke builds please contact us here at Epic Cycles as we are able to offer virtually unlimited customisation options.
