What makes Orca unique
OMX frames blend high modulus fibers and high strength fibers exclusively. Prepreg carbon sheets are laser cut to minimize excess materials and overlap, and hours of premolding is done to ensure optimal compaction with the smallest amount of carbon. A full EPS mold and Latex inserts are used to eliminate wrinkles and imperfections.
OMR frames add high modulus and high strength fibers to a standard layup to improve stiffness-to-weight ratios. Bladder molding with EPS forms and PU headtube and bottom bracket inserts stop wrinkling and unconformities in critical zones, allowing less carbon to be used while maintaining strength.
95-105NM STIFFNESS The large majority of torsional and lateral loads are handled by the lower spine of the frame. The headtube, downtube and chainstays resist twisting and transmit power to the rear wheel. There is no doubt about it, resistance to flex in the bottom of the frame translates directly to more watts to the wheel and a sensation that power transfer is instantaneous.
Lowered seat stays and optimized carbon structure and tubing shapes are elemental to building a comfortable frame that helps reduce muscle fatigue, and comfort makes you faster. The natural flex patterns created by the carbon layup and minimal bulk of the top tube and seat stays deliver a dynamic, smooth ride that feels like floating over rough roads.
Ergonomics for the widest range of riders
Handling is precise and intuitive. Angles and dimensions are considered carefully across a range of sizes to put more power to the road with every pedal stroke, and more power means more speed.

How can ergonomics help you ride further? Unlike a racing position that is focused on aerodynamics, an endurance position results in a bike that is easier to ride and increases stamina. A shorter cockpit and higher handlebar maximize rider comfort – and more comfort means longer and faster rides.
OC RISE HANDLEBAR
This simple and elegant ergonomic solution elevates the tops and drops of the traditional road bar, so your neck and shoulders can relax a bit more, focusing on a better ride ahead. Increase endurance with a position that enhances comfort.
Compared to a standard compact road bar, the 15mm rise and 5mm shorter reach dimensions of the OC Rise Handlebar replicate the geometry of an Endurance bike but keep the overall frame performance that made Orca famous. Choose an OC Rise handlebar or OC Compact handlebar and of course stem length – all available through MyO – and personalize an Orca perfect for you.
