Escape to the open road with Orca Bronze.
At Orbea, we recognize that there are riders who simply desire a marriage of comfort and performance in an affordable road bike. This is where the Orca Bronze is special. We build it with the same Monocoque Technology that we use for our more expensive Gold and Silver versions, but here we use our Bronze level carbon fiber. It is more economical and is a great choice for a first carbon bicycle. We shape the Orca Bronze much like our Gold and Silver versions, and its responsive, high performance road manners make the kinship obvious.
The Orca Bronze uses a blend of intermediate modulus carbon fibers that are slightly more elastic than the higher modulus fibers in the Gold and Silver Orca bicycles. And this is where its true benefit is derived; our Bronze carbon fiber offers a silky smooth ride. It absorbs high frequency vibrations from coarse or broken road surfaces better than the Orca Gold or Silver and far better than aluminum or steel frames.
If the open road is calling your name, you’ll be prepared to cover the miles in comfort with the Orca Bronze. We employ our SSN, DCR, and AIZonE technologies to ensure that you’ll benefit from unsurpassed comfort (no matter the size), flawless shifting, and a just right blend of aerodynamics and stiffness for high performance efforts. It’s built with modern bearing standards; it has a tapered 1-1/8” to 1-1/2” steerer and a BB30 bottom bracket. The Orca Bronze is your escape route to the open road. We’ve created it to inspire you to perform.
