Orbea Orca Disc brake road bike for Cofidis team

This is the team-exclusive Orbea Orca Disc, a new bike for Cofidis to race the classics upon. The Avant Disc came out in 2013, so it’s not the Spanish brand’s first disc road bike, but it is the first intended for the pro peloton. It’s decked out with components from team sponsors Shimano, Prologo and FSA, and we pulled a few screen grabs from their team’s promo video to show frame details.

It’s likely Orbea reworked the layup at the rear dropouts to handling the braking forces and used the change to improve compliance in the seat stays. Wheels are Vision Trimax30 Disc, which are available for either 6-bolt or Centerlock rotors. Despite the matte appearance, they are alloy rimmed.
