The team over at Orro Bikes have revealed a unique collaboration with carbon fibre specialists SigmaTex, the results of which will be seen on their new Gold STC.
In Orro’s words, the strive for perfection led them on a search to find the best carbon manufacturers in the world, a quest which led them to the UK based brand. With an impressive portfolio that includes projects in the F1, Aerospace and Defence industries, SigmaTex’s reputation is second to none. But also of note, SigmaTex and Orro share a deep rooted British heritage.
Of particular interest to Orro was SigmaTex’s Spread Tow carbon fabric. The Unidirectional Spread Tow tapes involved have more fibres packed into a smaller space improving mechanic performance. These tapes are compiled into Spread Tow fabrics which are thinner, have more uniform strength, and are easier to manufacture with than conventional carbon fabrics. The technology, which is already at use in the NASCAR and snow sports industries, is being brought to Orro’s bike line-up with the latest Gold STC.
Orro says the new bike is lighter, stiffer and more comfortable than the previous Gold, while improving upon its already beautiful and elegant look
The Gold STC will be available soon, take a closer look here.
