The Orbea Orca is the Spanish brand’s flagship race ready frameset. Orbea claim in their promotion material that the Orca is not designed to be soft and plush and the design and geometry shows that this is a stiff bike for racers – see the beautifully designed giant downtube and massive BB bracket for a demonstration! The M20 Pro model comes with a Shimano Ultegra groupset and rim brakes.
You’d expect a bike named after a killer whale to exhibit some attitude and aggression — a bit of bite. And this bike does. Though unlike the six-ton marine mammal, the two-wheeled Orca is light, fast and an exceptional climber, so it’s probably about time to leave that analogy behind…
