The era of accessible performance

Electronic shifting is here to stay. What was not so long ago considered a premium option for competitive road cycling has now become increasingly familiar among day-to-day cyclists. The road world continues to evolve from mechanical to electronic, and today, it can be said that this change is the beginning of a new reality.

The change is coming

What’s the catalyst for the introduction of electronic groups? There are a few factors, but the biggest one is technological advancement that has introduced more electronic shifting options to the market at a competitive price. And who can say no to increasing their performance?

At Orbea, we live in a constant state of reinvention and we are always in favor of adopting the best tech into our bikes.

High-value gear, like our competitive road platforms, must adapt to new trends and ride the wave of the electronic phenomenon.

And for this, we chose to go all-in with the best.

New Shimano 105 Di2

For those who have only experienced mechanical shifting and ergonomics, the new Shimano 105 Di2 represents a transformative road cycling experience. And now, this change can be enjoyed on two of our most emblematic road models: Orca and Orca Aero.

We’ve introduced Shimano’s new groupset into the Orca M30iLTD PWR and Orca Aero M30iLTD. This groupset is packed with features and technologies inherited from DURA-ACE and ULTEGRA and is the culmination of years of research and development.

With a shared Di2 platform, sophisticated ergonomics, Shimano 105-optimized gear combinations and an exceptional brake system, pairing this new groupset with the Orca and Orca Aero is bound to usher in a new era of accessible performance.
