30% off 2019 Orbea Orca Aero M20 Team Ultegra Road Bike
Friday, May 1, 2020 - 12:12
This carbon aero frame gets an Ultegra groupset for a fast and snappy ride.
Orbea’s Orca line is the Basque brand’s race bike range with aero bikes like this M20 and climbing bikes like the M20i.
Orbea has centred its attention around the lowering drag and they claim that the fork alone provides a “4-watt drag reduction.” Orbea has aimed to increase stiffness around the bottom bracket area providing a very reactive ride. That should help when you’re stamping your way up a steep climb.
Orbea says that widening the fork legs helps to combat turbulence. This has the secondary benefit of allowing you to fit nice wide tyres for a bit of extra comfort.
The Ultegra R8000 groupset is the perfect choice in our eyes. You get crisp and accurate shifting without any delay and the lever hood ergonomics are really good, keeping you comfortable on long rides.
The gearing is tuned to suit mixed terrain with a compact chainset providing a 34/50T combination. This drives an 11-28T cassette for a wide spread of gears.
Everything rolls on Vision’s Team 35 Comp wheels which, while perfectly capable wheels, would be the first thing that we’d be looking to upgrade. They’re shod with dependable Vittoria Rubino 25mm tyres.

The road of the cyclist has climbs, descents, plains, false flats, endless routes, unexpected curves. Every ride a story, and every rider, too. Knowing what cycling means gives us the rare passion and knowledge to adapt and listen to the cyclist, because they're on the journey with us.
With a family of bicycles designed to suit every rider, we offer a bike for every step of the ride, from full suspension Enduro mountain bikes to featherweight Grand Tour racing steeds. Bikes for sheer enjoyment, for unending miles through the forest, and for the pinnacle of performance. We are cycling because we are fluid, able to adapt to the needs of every rider like a cyclist reading a corner.
The Basque Country has an innate passion for cycling, a perpetual love of the sport from edge to edge. It is a paradise for a cyclist to take on the road, on a bike-sharing experience with friends, but also a land of cycling champions and legends, who suffer to conquer the peaks. It's in this environment that Orbea has thrived, making cycling integral in the fabric of Basque Country society.
We saw the growth by the roadside of cycling for everyone, and we grew up riding an orange tide that arose in the valleys of the great mountains of the Pyrenees. Each Orbea retains something of our environment, the Basque Country, our mountains, our temperament, our spirit and our momentum. A responsibility to love was born here, and our enthusiasm conquered the world.
