Product Description

It’s full steam ahead or nothing. The 2022 Orbea Orca Aero M11e LTD isn’t familiar with the terms ‘group ride’, ‘Sunday cruise’, or ‘compromise’. The Orca Aero M11e LTD will cut through air like a well honed blade. Coming stock with SRAM Red eTap AXS, meet fast and efficient shifting on a bike that perfectly already sits at the top of the food chain. Set yourself ahead of the pack; lose yourself to the road while the competition loses to you.

Over the past couple of years, Orbea has significantly improved their carbon fiber layups and frame construction. They use their in-house OMX carbon lay-up to carefully reinforce critical frame areas which provide unbelievable stiffness to weight ratios. The forces acting on every part of the frame are taken into consideration and then exactly the right amount of material is utilized to implement strength, rigidity, and weight savings.

The Orca Aero M11e LTD effortlessly cheats air resistance. A holistic improvement to essentially every aspect of the Orca Aero M11e LTD yields a reduced drag of 15 watts at 40kmph and 28 watts at 50kmph. These are numbers that you will feel. In the name of optimization, Orbea specifically designed down tube and seat tube for 25-28mm tires. This means that you have a 3mm window of tire selection if you are after the most aerodynamic compliance between tire and bike. However, you will have room for 30mm tires, which can provide greater comfort and decreased rolling resistance. Tire selection is a very personal decision and Orbea gives you the power to pick.

Comfort is often an aspect that falls through the cracks in creating sleek aerodynamic road bikes. An uncomfortable cyclist is a slow cyclist; if you’re constantly shifting about in search of a pleasant position, you’re creating lots of drag. You’re also mentally distracted from the road in front of you. One of our favorite aspects about the 2022 Orbea Orca Aero M11e LTD is its superior ergonomics. Orbea designed the Orca Aero M11e LTD without a fully integrated cockpit to provide handlebar adaptability because they know that everyone has different reach numbers, flexibility, and riding styles. Rotate your bars, change stem length, rotate your seat angle, and make your competition regret their back-killing one-position integrated bar/stems. Fast can, and must, be comfortable.

Orbea’s attention to detail is what makes them really stand out from competitors. They’ve managed to integrate a tool box into the 2022 Orca Aero M11e LTD that is positioned behind the front wheel. This tool box not only allows you to have less in your pockets, it also further increases aerodynamics. Always remember, optimized aerodynamics are faster than trivial weight savings.
