The bicycle that stole the show

The model that Orbea “partially” revealed in the Tour de France has caught the eye of everyone. Their attention. Their whispers. Is that the new Orca? We're prolonging the intrigue.

Geoffroy Soupe was the lucky person to ride the first kilometers on the new Orbea model.

The Team Cofidis cyclist has ridden our latest creation from its presentation at Mont Saint Michel until the finish line at the Champs-Élysées.

Three weeks on the road are more than just a race, it is the pinnacle of everything that is professional cycling. This is the second time that Soupe has taken part in the Tour de France after his debut in 2015.

With white lines on a black background, our intent was to partially hide the shape of this new bicycle. The entire objective was to prolong the intrigue. We've called this model the “Orca Spy”.

The Tour de France is the greatest cycling spectacle in the world, and an unbeatable showcase for the debut of our new model.

From the Pyrenees to the Alps, seeking the glory of the Champs-Élysées.

The folks at GCN have dedicated a special video to it, attempting to reveal what is behind this impressive graphic.
