Electronic shifting, Orbea Orca UCI Pro Tour proven technology, and a Mavic Wheel/Tyre System all under $5000.
Smooth and easy shifting under heavy load. Shifting is guaranteed thanks to a microchip communication link with the gear levers. What’s more, shifting the rear derailleur automatically trims the front derailleur. This ensures that the chain never rubs. Its rigid construction guarantees swift, silent, smooth shifting even under the most demanding of conditions.
Olympic champion Samuel Sánchez tests out the safety of the Orca on even the most complex descents; You’ll be safe and confident ascending and descending Kentucky’s worst.
Each bike size is designed individually, optimizing the frame structure according to the stiffness ratio and the cyclist’s body mass. The result is five individually-designed frames, 100% exclusive and perfectly balanced. This is achieved by creating a structure with variable, optimized tube diameters, in addition to a specific carbon fiber laminate for each of the sizes.

What is Orca Gold/Silver/Bronze?
Orbea carbon is a composite consisting of high modulus carbon fibers, and Orbea uses it to create structures with optimum stiffness, resistance, lightness and vibration absorption. In short, the perfect qualities for making the perfect frames.
Orbea has designed three fiber categories, called Gold, Silver and Bronze. Each one represents a different level of carbon and therefore has certain technical characteristics.
One of the main differences between Orbea fiber types is the modulus level. The greater the Young’s Modulus, the better the performance, as can be seen in the three Orbea classifications: Gold (ultra-high modulus), Silver (high modulus) and Bronze (intermediate modulus).
