2017 Orbea Orca OMP
The Orca is stiffer than ever before! Orbea has increased efficiency which puts power to the pedals. They’ve even improved comfort by reshaping and refining the layup schedule on the seatstays, seatpost, and top tube.
Orca stands for Orbea Carbon and OMP stands for Orbea Monocoque Performance. At the heart of the OMP is its monocoque frame. Orbea blends Toray T700, T800 and M40J fibers to make its frame and prepreg carbon sheets are cut to minimize excess materials and overlap. However more overlap is allowed on the OMP than the Orca OMR. This results in a slightly heavier frame, but a much lower price tag.
The Orbea Orca OMP is a robust and stiff race frame with a revamped top tube, seatpost and seatstays. Orbea's road manager, Joseba Arizaga, has stated that the new Orcas are an evolution and refinement of the Orca, with the end goal being to create the best racing bike Orca has ever designed. Joseba said that the new Orcas are: "a reflection of an attitude for people who want to go faster and push their individual performances."
In terms of geometry and fit, Orbea has aimed the new frames to offer a better fit to more people, with different sizes having linear changes in geometry, so each frame has the same ride quality and characteristics. The OMP is available in seven sizes (47cm, 49cm, 51cm, 53cm, 55cm, 57cm and 60cm).
