Orbea Orca M20 17 White/ Black/ Red (55)
Brought to you by Endurance House Kansas City
The 2017 Orca displays massive tube cross-sections in the critical bottom bracket junction via a wide PF86 bottom bracket shell, as the headtube, downtube, and chainstays have been given larger diameters to work seamlessly together as a means to resist twist and more efficiently convert pedal strokes to watts. Borrowing ride quality concepts from their World Cup Winning Alma mountain bike, Orbea was able to create a carbon layup with natural flex patterns to greatly smoothen the ride out, even over... dare we say? Cobbles.
The Orca M20 Model features Orbea's OMP (Orbea Monocoque Performance) carbon fiber construction. The Evolution line uses a medium-modulus carbon fiber, making it slightly thicker to the sacrifice of an insignificant weight penalty. This by no means equates to a frame with any less of an appetite for racing. Pair the race-hungry OMP carbon fiber Orca frameset with Shimano's Shimano Ultegra 6800 11-speed mechanical drivetrain, FSA's cockpit build, and Vision's reliable set of hoops, and you've got a lightweight, yet resilient steed that'll see you through the offseason base miles and then happily toe the line come early spring.
