Description

Climb the podium without completely destroying your nest egg.

The Orbea Orca GLT features Orbea's ultra-high-modulus carbon fiber, Gold-level frame mated to Shimano Ultegra components for a more budget-friendly—but still incredibly competent―race bike. The freshly-redesigned Orca frame is 14% more aerodynamic than the previous incarnation, while maintaining the stiffness required for pro-level racing and the ride quality desired for long days in the saddle. When designing the new Orca, Orbea utilized the San Diego wind tunnel to maximize the aerodynamic advantage of the new frame. The time spent in the wind tunnel, combined with technology borrowed from the Ordu TT bike, resulted in a 14% decrease in drag for the new model. Never ones to ignore the most important aspect of frame building—comfort and ride quality—Orbea engineered the Orca's rear triangle and fork to turn traction-force compression into shear force, which results in a much smoother, comfortable ride without compromising lateral stiffness.

  • Shimano's mechanical Ultegra gruppo provides consistent, precise, and reliable shifting performance for all riding situations
  • Wind-tunnel-tested aerodynamics make you faster
  • Selle Italia Monolink saddle makes dialing in your position as simple as possible, and a conversion kit is included so you can use your favorite saddle as well
  • Mavic Ksyrium wheels wrapped in Vittoria Diamante tires are stiff, super-reliable, and lightweight
  • Externally-routed GORE RideOn cable system allows direct routing and a minimal amount of housing for maximum modulation and feedback
