It’s hard to beat the sensation of power that comes from a great aero bike. What rider is ambivalent about a machine that is designed to give back free watts? Is there a competitor who doesn’t grasp every last advantage in the battle for speed? Orca Aero delivers these prizes – along with the willingness to to go all-out, all day, without hesitation. Long live the bike that balances the emotional and rational desires inside each of us – Long live Aero.

DRAG REDUCTION 15W at 40KMPH 28W at 50kmph
PERFECT BALANCE Historically, considering only the three design factors of aerodynamics, stiffness and weight rarely yields dramatic improvement. Big gains in one area always compromise one or both of the others. The key to building the best aero road bike is finding the balance of these targets, and identifying additional performance factors that allow the rider to increase efficiency.
THIS IS THE MOST SPECIFIC AERO BIKE ORBEA EVER DESIGNED
AERODYNAMICS Aligning the frame with the airflow, optimizing cross-sections, smoothing transitions and myriad other improvements mean a big reduction in drag. Slipping effortlessly through the air, that instant feedback of a world-class aero bike. There is no better feeling.
POWER TRANSMISSION The large majority of torsional and lateral loads are handled by the lower spine of the frame. A frame which is stiff in the right places means direct power transmission to the rear wheel.
BALANCED HANDLING One of the most important points to consider when determining geometry is that the bike must be easy to ride. Going fast isn’t just a by product of good aerodynamics, it requires precise control over the bike.
SUPERIOR ERGONOMICS Our all new OC Cockpit has been designed for a perfect balance of aerodynamics, stiffness to weight and ergonomics.
