Orro releases new Terra C bike featuring Sigmatex carbon fibres

British bike manufacturer Orro has released the all new Terra C model road bike this month, featuring sigmaIF – a combination of Innegra and Sigmatex carbon fibres to produce a completely redesigned frame.

With headquarters in Ditchling, Orro say its mission is to create the best and most stylish bikes for serious riders. The Terra C is one of several bikes in the Orro range that feature Sigmatex carbon technology. The Terra C has a lightweight frame, tyre clearance and geometry aimed at the emerging adventure riding scene, while retaining the speed and handling of a road bike.

Offering the same light weight performance as more traditional carbon fibre reinforcements, sigmaIF is also said to provide improved impact resistance and damping properties – absorbing energy and reducing vibrations, which makes for a smoother ride, the manufacturer explains.

 “sigmaIF is so versatile and we have been able to completely customise the fibres to improve the strength in critical areas to ward off rock strikes and other such impacts,” Orro commented.

According to Sigmatex, in addition to cycling, sigmaIF has been the chosen solution for a diverse range of sporting applications including paddle boards, ice hockey sticks and surfboards. “sigmaIF has a greater damage tolerance which reduces failure in such applications where impact resistance is essential,” the company reports.
