Orbea Orca M40 Carbon Road Bike 2022

THE LIGHTEST AND MOST CAPABLE RACING BIKE

Performance, technology and style have always been cornerstones of cycling. We may not compete but we love the feel of a racing bike – an Orca that is light, fast and beautiful. Professional athletes, weekend warriors, Strava hunters and recreational riders all have similar aspirations – we love the machine as much as the lifestyle.

Everyone can benefit from a smoother ride, advanced engineering and aerodynamic advantage even if we don’t know a Watt from a Water Bottle. We expect integrated controls and components that are sleek, smart and device-enabled. For flexibility and performance, we ensure Orca has room for wider rubber. To fit the widest range of riders, we offer unique bar and stem fitting solutions because not all of us are seeking the same riding position, we want the fastest bike that fits. Orca is a personalized, modern, capable racing bike that excites us to ride exactly the way we like.

These are riders who don’t think of themselves as sprinters or rolleurs or climbers or even racers, they want a bike that can do everything and master any route. They are athletes who are looking for leading technology and style and appreciate a bike that stands out from the rest.

Orbea Monocoque Carbon - We use the most technologically advanced carbon construction available to make the most sophisticated frame possible – A complex and painstaking process with results you will appreciate in the saddle.

OMX FRAME SHAPES - The downtube, seat tube and seat stay sections of the new Orca are ovalized and subtly flattened for a 10% drag reduction over the previous version.

OMR FRAME SHAPES - The round 27.2mm seat post is significantly more comfortable than 30.9 or 31.6mm diameters, improving smoothness in the saddle without sacrificing frame stiffness at the bottom bracket.

FREEFLOW FORK - Freeflow spreads the fork legs away from this area to reduce pressure and turbulence. Normal directional aerodynamics remain unchanged but the bike gets faster because the airspace inside the Freeflow fork blades is less chaotic.

STIFFNESS - 95-105NM STIFFNESS The large majority of torsional and lateral loads are handled by the lower spine of the frame. The headtube, downtube and chainstays resist twisting and transmit power to the rear wheel. There is no doubt about it, resistance to flex in the bottom of the frame translates directly to more watts to the wheel and a sensation that power transfer is instantaneous.

SMOOTHNESS - Lowered seat stays and optimized carbon structure and tubing shapes are elemental to building a comfortable frame that helps reduce muscle fatigue, and comfort makes you faster. 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.

ORBEA ROAD RACING GEOMETRY - Orca Racing Geometry is born from almost 100 years of designing road racing bikes and is the perfect balance of responsiveness and stability. The position is aggressive to maximize body aerodynamics and efficiency. Handling is precise and intuitive. Angles and dimensions are considered carefully across a range of sizes to put more power to the road with every pedal stroke, and more power means more speed.

ADAPTABLE ERGONOMICS - How can ergonomics help you ride further? Unlike a racing position that is focused on aerodynamics, an endurance position results in a bike that is easier to ride and increases stamina. A shorter cockpit and higher handlebar maximize rider comfort – and more comfort means longer and faster rides.

OC RISE HANDLEBAR - This simple and elegant ergonomic solution elevates the tops and drops of the traditional road bar, so your neck and shoulders can relax a bit more, focusing on a better ride ahead. Increase endurance with a position that enhances comfort.

ICR PLUS - Internal Cable Routing is carefully guided along the best path under the stem and through the head tube, with no rub or rattle, and is optimized for both traditional and electronic shifting systems. Proprietary headset spacers smooth airflow and offer easy adjustment. The entire Orbea road line offers this clean solution with OC Integrated stems and cable covers.

STEM AND COMPUTER MOUNT - The faceplate of the stem is compatible with an integrated computer mounting platform. Attach a computer or remove the mount for the ultimate clean appearance.

HIDDEN CLAMP - Orca’s seat post clamp is integrated smoothly into the frame, decreasing the likelihood of contamination and increasing aerodynamics. Of course, it looks great too. Just one of the small details that make Orca smart and beautiful.
