2022 Orbea Orca Aero: An Aggressive, Aerodynamic Speed Machine With A Huge Uci-Illegal Integrated Tool Box

Emma Cole 30 Sep 2021 The 2022 Orca Aero is all about aerodynamic efficiency Orbea launches a new Orca Aero today, its most aero specific road bike ever aimed at those obsessed with speed. It comes in six different models which vary in price from £3,999 to £9,599 and, while it looks a lot like a number of other highly integrated aero road bikes , it stands out thanks to a unique tool storage box slung under the down tube, one that isn't actually UCI-legal. The Orca Aero comes in a range of different builds, offering a choice of SRAM Red eTap AXS, SRAM Force eTap AXS and SRAM Rival eTAP AXS or Shimano’s new 12-speed groupsets , Dura-Ace Di2 R9270 and Ultegra Di2 R8170 or R8000.

Will Strickson 7 Sep 2021 While the same teams won the same Grand Tours as in 2020, we examine which bikes, groupsets and brakes did the best this year While the same teams won the same Grand Tours as in 2020, we examine which bikes, groupsets and brakes did the best this year Words: Will Strickson Photography: Chris Auld The backdrop for our Grand Tour tech summary this year is eerily similar to 2020 .
