LESS IS THE NEW MORE
In the fight to create the lightest, sleekest road racing machine – a competition where ‘everything is everything’, marginal is huge and nothing is overlooked – Orca wins by delivering less. Lower mass, invisible cables and reduced aerodynamic drag unlock a smaller footprint with bigger potential. Cycling is filled with superlatives and so much ‘more.’ By demanding less, by maximizing minimalism, we have created an Orca that improves riding experience and boosts performance by refining what remains when unnecessary is removed.
Internal Cable Routing is carefully routed along the best path under the stemand through the head tube, with no rub or rattle, and is optimized for both traditional and electronic shifting systems.
Orca's seat post clamp is smoothly integrated into the frame, decreasing the likelihood of contamination and increasing aerodynamics. Not to mention it looks great, too!
The sleek and secure clamp of the Orca seatpost is a proprietary design that allows tilt adjustments to be made independently of the saddle fore-aft position.
Cables and brake hoses are routed directly in side the stem under an aero cover. A clever headset design and split stem spacers allow the cables to enter the frame while still permitting stem adjustment.
DYNAMIC STRUCTURE STIFFNESS
The headtube, downtube and chainstays resist twisting and transmit power to the rear wheel. Resistance to flex in the bottom of the frame translates directly to more watts on the road.
