The underlying approach:

Matching a light, carbon frame and forks with excellent design means you'll gain a ride that's both fast and comfortable. Orro have achieved the ride balance of stiffness where it's needed for speed and efficiency, and compliance where it gives you comfort.

Add those characteristics to an undeniably sleek appearance and it has to be a winner.

Technical background:

We agree with the view that the fastest bike frame design can be undermined if it's not comfortable to ride - the fatigue of a 'bad' ride can easily undermine any gain to be had from the theoretically efficient aspects.

With the Orro Gold the designers have included oversized chain stays and a BB30 bottom bracket to make your pedalling efficient, but combined them with a longer wheel base and tapered steerer tube to give riding stability and impeccable handling.

The stiffness of the bike is reinforced with Orro's own blend of carbon fibres in the crucial sections that they've matched with compliance - 'give' in the frame - to ensure your ride is comfortable too.

Add in the bike's overall lightness and the excellent set of components and Orro have created a winner you can enjoy.
