Bikes & Parts - Orro Pyro 105

In a nutshell:

This is what we'd call a performance/sportive bike - which means it's more comfortable than an out-and-out speed machine, but it still performs admirably.


Who's it for:

Anyone who wants a light, fast bike that's good for riding all day long.


Price:

Prices for the Orro Pyro range from £1,299 to £1,350 depending on the brakes you opt for.

This price includes a comprehensive bike fitting, and your new bike's first service and our Rider Care package.*

Available Versions:

These are two brake system/wheel combinations available. Contact us to talk over which version will be best for you and your riding.

  • Shimano 105/Caliper Brakes/Fulcrum Racing Sport Wheels (£1,299)
  • Shimano 105/Disc Brakes/Fulcrum Racing Sport Disc Wheels (£1,350)

The underlying approach:

This is a supremely light frame with impressively taut oversized chain stays and BB30 bottom bracket. In practice, that means your efforts are transmitted to the road efficiently. The result is you go forwards with less effort.

Crucially, that speed is married to good handling - a longer wheel base means you have a stable ride - ideal for descents in particular but a factor in the overall comfort of the ride too.

Technical background:

Riding harder for longer can easily cause fatigue. With the Orro Pyro they've employed a proprietary blend of 20, 40 and 60 Ton carbon fibres to give you a well-thought out overall approach.

The 20T carbon fibre is used in areas of the bike where comfort and flexibility are key, including the seat-stays and seat tube. This means more high frequency road vibrations are absorbed before they reach you. The result is a more comfortable ride - and comfort counts for speed too.

In other areas of a frame, stiffness is key to transferring the forces created by rider to the road effectively. The Pyro uses 40T and 60T carbon fibres to add stiffness in areas such as the head tube to ensure responsive handling, and to the down-tube, bottom bracket and chain stays to transmit your power without loss to the road.

Overall, the Pyro's geometry has been specifically designed to provide all day performance with best-in-class stability, comfort and agility.

Setting up:

Don't forget that when you buy a new bike from us, the price includes:

  • a full bike fitting.
  • taking that bike fitting information, then changing the handlebars, stem and crank arms as necessary, to ensure you are comfortable on the bike - and safe too.
  • and as well as the right size, we also include a saddle fitting - that has to right for you too!

We sell the Pyro either with standard road calliper brakes or disc brakes. The disc brake version will give you the added stopping power needed for wet weather conditions.
