Sigmatex has announced its collaboration with British bike manufacturer Orro, on its new range of elite road bikes.
Sigmatex explains that Orro’s objective is to create the best and most stylish bikes for serious riders. Orro use the latest pioneering materials of the highest quality and their Gold Signature bike can even be painted to a bespoke design. Orro’s Gold range is the flagship model, described as a ‘real world performance bike’.
The Gold Signature bikes utilise its most advanced textile solution, ‘sigmaST’ to support Orro’s objectives around lightweighting and strength, adds Sigmatex. Adam Glew from Orro commented, “We are very proud of our new range of Gold bikes and it’s fantastic to have a top British carbon manufacturer in Sigmatex on board to help keep Orro at the forefront of cycling innovation.”
According to Sigmatex, sigmaST is an innovative carbon fibre textile, increasingly used for its lightweight nature and improved mechanical performance when compared to traditional carbon textiles. It is 20% lighter than traditional carbon fabrics and has an excellent strength to weight ratio. This technology is highly advantageous in such industries where there is an increasing demand for strength and stiffness combined with low weight.
