Ordu translates to “moment” in the Basque language. It’s the perfect name for a bike created to capture the efforts of training and distill them into the present, a single focus on having the time of your life. The time you push so deep into the tunnel you can’t recall the minutes spent on the road. When heart rate, wattage and gear selection completely vanish from your perception and it is only you and the bike. We all know moments like this – the rarest of events when somehow you ride beyond your capabilities and do the perfect effort. Everything clicks into place and you have the time of your life.
LONG LIVE ORCA AERO
It’s hard to beat the sensation of power that comes from a great aero bike. What rider is ambivalent about a machine that is designed to give back free watts? Is there a competitor who doesn’t grasp every last advantage in the battle for speed? Orca Aero delivers these prizes – along with the willingness to to go all-out, all day, without hesitation. Long live the bike that balances the emotional and rational desires inside each of us – Long live Orca Aero.
In the fight to create the lightest, sleekest road racing machine – a competition where ‘everything is everything’, marginal is huge and nothing is overlooked – Orca wins by delivering less. Lower mass, invisible cables and reduced aerodynamic drag unlock a smaller footprint with bigger potential. Cycling is filled with superlatives and so much ‘more.’ By demanding less, by maximizing minimalism, we have created an Orca that improves riding experience and boosts performance by refining what remains when unnecessary is removed.
Of course you’re not lost, you just aren’t quite sure if this road is the quickest route to the next ridge. The weather is great, you’ve got all day and you’re riding Terra, so keep the wheels rolling. If route-finding, taking the long way home and straying from the beaten path are your ideas of fun, there is no better tool than Terra for unlocking your desire to explore.
