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.
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.
