With a history steeped in competitive racing, it is no wonder that the Orbea Orca Aero M20i Team is built for little more than a competitive advantage.
Characterised by its versatility and intelligent design, it uses the most technologically advanced carbon construction to make the most sophisticated frame possible. The multiple bottle cage mounts and three bosses provide several configuration options, to improve aerodynamics or improve the distribution of the bike’s centre of gravity.
The large majority of torsional and lateral loads are handled by the lower spine of the frame. The headtube, downtube and chainstays are shaped to resist twisting and transmit power to the rear wheel. Undoubtedly, large cross-sections and resistance to flex in the bottom of the frame translate directly to more watts on the road and a sensation that power transfer is instantaneous.
The seat stays are thinner, the cross-sections and diameters reduced to give maximum traction and control over rough surfaces without compromising global rigidity. The natural flex patterns created by the carbon layup and minimal bulk of the top tube and seat stays deliver a dynamic, smooth ride that feels like floating over rough roads.
