Comments Comments

Orbea have released details of their top aero offering, the Orca, featuring SRAM's new AXS groupset.

The SRAM eTap AXS comes with new technology, a new look and new features including a 12-speed cassette. This high-performance groupset makes for faster changes than the previous generation of eTap. 

The 2019 Orbea Orca fitted with SRAM's new AXS 12-speed groupset.

Orbea say the Orca is made for professional riders, designed with dynamic racing geometry and fitted with 'Freeflow' forks to maximize pedaling efficiency and aerodynamics. Orbea say the frame is 'their best carbon construction with the best carbon fibers available'.

"To cut through headwinds, try the Orca Aero," they say. "This bike includes small improvements to tube shape and various components to prioritize stiffness and increase aerodynamic performance. Whether your goal is to lead the pack or raise your arms in victory after hitting 1700 W on Sram eTap AXS’s new potentiometer, the Orca Aero will help you get there."

The two Orca / SRAM AXS models, Orca M11iLTD-D and Orca Aero M11iLTD-D, also come with Mavic Cosmic Pro Carbon wheels. Both models feature versatility, with a blend of light weight, high stiffness and superb aerodynamics for maximum efficiency and the fastest speed possible.

Shimano may have been late to the game releasing their first 12-speed drivetrain, but after spending some trail-time aboard it, there's no denying that the new XTR is worth the wait.

Focus has approached the E-MTB category in a markedly different way to its rivals by focusing on bike first and battery second. Is it the right approach?

Like them or loathe them, the E-MTB is here to stay and whether you are an elite racer or weekend FROTHER there is a place in everyone’s garage for one of these beasts.
