Orbea Orca M20 Bike 2016

Conquer Mountains. Climb Podiums.

As most high-end bicycle manufactures outsource product engineering, Orbea demonstrates a rare paradigm of in-house engineering. By conducting all engineering within the walls of their Basque foundation, Orbea is able to relentlessly tweak until perfection is met. For 2015, Orbea has placed the Orca frame under the loupe and scalpel in an intensive operation to trim weight from its already insanely lightweight frame. To accomplish this, Orbea reshaped or simply removed any design features from the predeceasing Orca frame that proved trivial to stiffness and ride quality, resulting in thinner seat stays and reduced cross-sections and tube diameters to provide graceful support for the seat tube and nothing more. One visually noticeable weight reducing difference is the traditional seat collar that replaces the aero collar of past. The seat tube now employs a square-round shaping that places material only where it is needed, while the 27.2mm seatpost tenders the lowest weight and plushest ride.

Not all cross sections and diameters went under the shrinking ray. The 2016 Orca displays massive tube cross-sections in the critical bottom bracket junction via a wide PF86 bottom bracket shell, as the headtube, downtube, and chainstays have been given larger diameters to work seamlessly together as a means to resist twist and more efficiently convert pedal strokes to watts. The meeting place of top tube and head tube have been beefed up to increase torsional stiffness, but doesn’t hesitate to taper as a means of eliminating unnecessary material. Where the Orca frame really goes the extra step to save weight is through its EPS construction process. By compressing the carbon more efficiently in the mold, the EPS construction process eliminates pooling and variation inside the tubes, using less material and further increasing strength.

Borrowing ride quality concepts from their World Cup Winning Alma mountain bike, Orbea implements them directly into the Orca. After doing some homework on the way bumps and vibrations are transmitted through the frame under a rider’s weight, Orbea was able to create a carbon layup with natural flex patterns to greatly smoothen the ride out, even over... dare we say? cobbles! Putting in a long, hard effort to the finish line is inevitable in road racing, but having every joint in your body rattled around on the way there is something the Orca sees differently.

As Orbea’s dedicated race horse, the Orca occupies their revamped geometry and fit philosophy. The phrase “race geometry” can often produce assumptions of merely a steeper head angle and a smaller wheelbase. As these are true in the Orca, Orbea didn’t stop there. The distances between axles drop allow for a snappier bike that take corners with ease and has exceptional footing when you standup out of the saddle and kick, which conserves both time and power at the same time. Additionally, Orbea’s sizing system puts a heavy emphasis on stack and reach, versus the much more common effective top tube measurement. Stack and reach are more truthful measurements because they define the spatial relationships of two important contact points between your body and the bike; pedals and handlebars. Stack is the vertical distance from the center of the bottom bracket to the top of the headtube. Reach is the horizontal distance from the center of the bottom bracket to that same point at the top center of the headtube. Orbea’s logical sizing allows the Orca to accommodate a wider range of riders and aligns with a more linear size progression. A lower stack and longer reach give the Orca a more aerodynamic position that’s consistent across all size options for a more efficient use of energy for short riders, tall riders, and any rider in between.

The Orca M20 Model features Orbea’s OMP (Orbea Monocoque Performance) carbon fiber construction. Using the same mold as Orbea’s top tier OMR (Orbea Monocoque Race) frames, the Performance line uses a medium-modulus carbon fiber, making it slightly thicker to the sacrifice of an insignificant weight penalty. This by no means equates to a frame with any less of an appetite for racing. Pair the race-hungry OMP carbon fiber Orca frameset with Shimano’s Ultegra 6800 11 speed mechanical drivetrain, FSA’s cockpit build, and Vision’s reliable set of hoops, and you’ve got a lightweight, yet resilient steed that’ll see you through the offseason base miles and then happily toe the line come early spring.

Great Bike
I'm really enjoying my new Orca. Super light, and well made. It's setup very nice, right out of the cheap parts, that needed swapped out. I've put around 100 miles on her so issues. It does come in a box, of course. With some minor assembly required. Nothing major, just be sure you have a torque wrench.

Tight bike, Right price
Fantastic bike, great price and service. Was still riding an Orbea Mitis 2 with first gen Force. This bike is a great balance of race and relax - stiff but compliant. Hats off to Jenson - well played.

What a steal!
I've been racing this bike for 2 seasons now as a cat 2 and for $2K this is a hell of a bike! The geometry is perfect and is super stable through corners and is a great combo of stiffness and comfort for sprinting and all day riding

Orbea Orca M20 great deal and highly recommend.
The Orbea Orca M20 looks a lot more beautiful in person than in the picture. Great components and very light. One small detail is that it was notice a small scratch on top of the frame.

Can Orbea Orca M20 fit 28c tire? what is the tire clearance of this bike??
A shopper on Mar 24, 2017
I'm 5'9" is the 53 too large for me? will I be too stretched out?
A shopper on Dec 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I can't say for sure. I used the size guide on the Orbea web sight and my bike fits me great. I was riding a 61cm Cannondale and ended up with a 57 cm Orbea which fits me perfectly. I am 6'2" and I love the bike in that size. No more numb hands and body aches.
Does you have frame only size 51cm ? or complete bike size 51cm?

Is this ORBEA ORCA M20 PRO ?? The carbon frame is OMP which is M20 PRO model.. confusing
Do Hyeon K on Mar 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The 2016 didn't have Pro in the name. It's the exact same bike. You can compare the models on Orbea web sight. Love the bike.
Do you have this bike in a different color than with pink?
