Shimano 105 is a group made for accessible performance, always heir-apparent to components costing three times as much. It’s also the perfect launchpad for Orbea's Orca OME frameset and the Orca M30, a capable racer costing many times less than bikes it can go toe-to-toe with. With Vision Team wheels, it’s an obvious candidate for giant killing and taking the weekend road race by storm without the cash outlay. Racing bicycles have become minimalist machines – but the more taken away, the greater the importance of what remains. The lower spine of the frame supports the upper members like a suspension bridge in a balance of lightweight rigidity. The downtube and chainstays of the Orca provide stiffness while the top tube and seatstays are tuned to almost nothing. The primary purpose of their slender shapes? To reduce mass. The Orca M30 is grassroots racing’s secret weapon. Welcome it into your arsenal.
