Starting with Monocoque carbon, the most technologically advanced carbon, the Orbea Orca M10iTeam-D provides one of the leading-edge frames on the market. The premier Orca OMR frame blends a premium mix of specific carbon fibers, with prepreg carbon sheets laser cut to minimize excess material and overlap. Using its advanced carbon lay-up, the frame offers dynamic structure stiffness for instantaneous power transfer and more speed on the road. The lower spine of the frame handles the majority of the lateral and torsional loads with impressive resistance to flex. The headtube, downtube, and chainstay have all been shaped to resist twisting, sending more energy to the rear wheel for more powerful and immediate acceleration.
To keep the quality of its ride nice and smooth with little to no road vibrations for excellent control and traction, the Orbea Orca M10iTeam-D uses thinner seatstays with reduced diameters at the cross-sections to maintain traction and control without losing rigidity. The frame’s carbon layup creates natural flex zones, with the low volume of the top tube and seat stays providing a silky ride over rough roads. To keep the bike nice and aero, Orbea used their Freeflow technology at the front fork, using wider spaced blades to reduce the airflow and turbulence created around wider rims and tires as air approaches from behind the fork. This technology results in a fork that is 4 watts faster than its predecessor, shaving your ride time.
By providing an aggressive geometry, the Orca M10iTeam-D maximizes body aerodynamics and power efficiencies for a responsive yet stable ride. Orbea uses Shimano R9170 hydraulic disc brakes for shorter braking distances, greater control in variant weather and road conditions, and reduced effort to activate the braking system so you save energy. The Orca M10iTeam-D also uses brand new Dura Ace 9150Di2 electronic shifting components for further energy savings as you ride and precise, smooth shifting. Other details include internal cable routing, clearance for 28mm tires, a hidden clamp-style seatpost binder, BB386 bottom bracket, and an integrated chain security device to prevent dropped chains.
The Orbea Orca M10iTeam-D is available in seven size, 47 – 60. It is available in the colors White-Black (Satin-Gloss), Black-Blue (Satin-Gloss), Blue light-Black (Gloss), Black-Green (Satin), Red Team (Gloss), and Blue Team (Gloss).
