A bike that doesn’t just cheat the wind but openly defies it – an ode to efficiency and stiffness that relishes the assault of a 1700 watt finish – Orca Aero is the perfect accomplice for riders who aspire to become more familiar with the podium.
The wider fork opening reduces airflow pressure via the wheel and the fork achieving a 4-watt drag reduction. The new UCI legal fork designed according to the new regulations, provides all competitors with a 3:1 advantage ratio.
The shortened tail enables the use of flatter tubing, which softens the airflow towards the bottle cages. Double radius opens up the airflow around the tubing profile, with improved airflow over the different angles. Flattened sides reduce friction at the front of the tubing and provide better drag at low speeds.
The Orca Aero has an oval seatpost designed to reduce air turbulence, without impairing its vibration absorption capabilities. The seatpost is adjustable, and employs a system that enables a greater range of saddle adjustment positions.
The head tube, bottom bracket, and chainstay joints are optimized for improved torsional strength. The sections have been optimized for each size frame to create a more rigid structure. A more rigid Orca Aero means improved transmission of power from the cyclist.
Last but not least, the specific design enables the integrated handlebars to be easily adapted. Orbea’s system enables different power handlebar options to be selected, which are perfectly integrated.
