Having a bike that would invite you to head out on your local training rides more often, and inspire you to seek out longer more rewarding events and sportives drove Orro to design the Gold.
Utilising your energy efficiently is imperative so the super-lightweight 955g frame features taut, oversized chain stays and a BB30 bottom bracket to deliver your power to the road and propel you forwards. Handling is also key to your performance; a longer wheel base provides a stable ride for fast descents. The tapered steerer tube delivers impeccable handling which will have you seeking out technical descents to enjoy. Electronic shifting options mean the Gold can also elevate the performance of your gear shifting too.
Riding harder for longer can cause fatigue and so the Gold has a proprietary blend of 20, 40 and 60 Ton carbon fibres. The 20T carbon fibre is used in several areas of the bike where comfort and flexibility are key such as the seat-stays and seat tube, which absorb more high frequency vibrations before they reach you. The higher 40T and 60T carbon fibres add stiffness in areas of the frame where forces must be transferred effectively such as the head tube to ensure responsive handling, and the down-tube, bottom bracket and chain stays to transmit your power without loss to the road. The geometry of the Gold has been specifically designed to provide an excellent balance between giving you the comfort to ride longer but also enhance your efforts when you put the power down.
The Gold is a performance machine but sophisticated design has been woven into its DNA. The sleek contours and subtle, but exclusive, frame artwork will attract many admiring glances. The Golds look is also complemented with Italian flair by componentry from leading brands including Fulcrum, 3T and Prologo.
