Chase the highest peaks and the deepest descents you can find on the Orbea Orca Silver SLi2. Featuring the same race-ready geometry and aerodynamic profile of Orbea's flagship Basque warrior in the Orca Gold, the Orca Silver differs only in carbon fiber weave and build kit. Not that we'd consider the all-new Shimano Ultegra Di2 electronic gruppo a downgrade. One ride on Shimano's crisp and responsive electronic shifting and you'll wonder how the hell you ever managed to sprint or climb without it. The rest of the SLi2 build kit is perfectly optimized for you to seize the reigns and ride with the fast group at your local 'fondo, or wreak havoc on the Cat 2 circuit. Aboard the Orca Silver SLi2, you'll find no goal too great, no challenge too heavy, and no ride not worth embarking upon.

A Very Fun Bike

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I've probably logged 300 miles on it so far this year.

Very well put together with zero maintenance issues. A great performer and very responsive. I removed the stock seat after 2 rides and replaced it with my rather classic Brook B17 seat. I know, hardly consistent with an Orbea but it is the seat that works for me. After that, I've been very pleased with it's performance, reliability, stability.

Minor note: if you load two water bottles on this frame (53) there isn't quite clearance for the two, one slightly (1/4") compresses the other. Not a problem for me but for a perfectionist, who knows.

As for the delivery. I've never seen a better packaged bike and was very impressed with how it was received. I was a little hesitant about having a bike shipped to me, but this was a top notch packing job.

I read something about the seatpost is...

I read something about the seatpost is integrated, can it be cut down if it is too high (or long) for me?

Best Answer

In general, you are correct, an integrated seatpost is designed to be trimmed to your exact fit for better performance, weight savings and elimination of a potential weak point.

That said, the 2013 Orbea Orca Silver SLi2 does NOT have an integrated seatpost. It comes with the Orbea Tija Modelos seatpost. You can view the full component build list here:
