  • Road CC - "Good handling, and plenty of comfort - a bike built for big rides with no hanging about"

    In February 2015 Orro handed over an original Gold to Road.cc for review, in which it received an impressive four out of five stars. Now, almost a year later we are proud to announce it has found itself awarded as one their sportive and endurance bikes of the year. 

    With the passing year, the Orro range has expanded and grown as they continue to pour dedication and passion into their design process from their Sussex HQ. The new Gold frame produced for 2016 is constructed exclusively with Sigmatex Spread Tow Carbon fibre. Resulting in a frame that is lighter, stiffer and more compliant; offering unparalleled comfort and performance.
    2016 also heralds the addition of a disc frame to the range. Coming in either cabled or electronic Ultegra with hydraulic calipers this machine is sure to become a favourite with riders looking for a comfortable, reliable machine for century rides or longer. The Gold Disc STC starts at £2099.99.
    You can now own a high performance bike for an even lower price, with the Gold range starting at just £1899.99 for a frame equipped with Ultegra 6800 and Fulcrum Racing Quattro wheels.
    Take a closer look at the full review on the Road.CC website.

  • We knew the Orro Pyro Disc was outstanding, but if you need confirmation, check out the latest issue of Cycling Plus magazine to see a stellar review. It earned a rare 4.5 stars out of 5, with a couple of key points:

    • "Around a centimeter taller on the front than a typical race bike - (But) Get down on the drops and it feels every inch the racer.."
    • "A chassis that feels firm and efficient but manages to damp out vibration and chatter - the right side of smooth over stiff..."
    • "Assured handling - The (slightly longer) wheelbase ensures excellent high speed stability..."
    • "Seriously loaded spec for the money..."
