NEWS AND NEW BIKE STUFF......

Just arrived at the OCC shop....

The New Season Orro range is here

We are excited to have just built up the new ORRO Pyro, one of the three new ORRO bikes available for this season.

The other two are the ORRO White Gold Signature and the Rose Gold Signature. Details of all three new bikes are given in our ORRO BIKES section along with the continuing classic ORRO Gold and ORRO Oxygen ranges.

All of these three new bikes have beautiful hand crafted paint finishes which are stunning. 

The geometry of the Pyro has been specifically designed to provide all day performance with best in class stability, comfort and agility.

The Pyro is available either with standard road caliper brakes or disc brakes. The later disc specific version providing added stopping power for wet weather conditions. You can of course stay classic with caliper brakes.

Riding harder for longer can cause fatigue and so the Pyro has a proprietary blend of 20, 40 and 60 Ton carbon fibres. The 20T carbon fibre is used in several areas of the bike where comfort and flexibility are key such as the seat-stays and seat tube which absorb more high frequency vibrations before they reach you.

The higher 40T and 60T carbon fibres add stiffness in areas of the frame where forces must be transferred effectively such as the head tube to ensure responsive handling, and the down-tube, bottom bracket and chain stays to transmit your power without loss to the road. The geometry of the Pyro has been specifically designed to provide all day performance with best in class stability, comfort and agility.

Call in to see this stunning new bike or call and talk to us about the availability of the other new ORRO Signature bikes......

The OCC Jersey is made from 100% Polyester and features a Tagless Label system, YKK Zipper, Ergonomic Panels and 3 Rear Cargo Pocket. It is available in four sizes.

The Jerseys are made By Primal Cycling Apparel who specialise in cycling gear and the jerseys are designed to wick, or disperse moisture away from surface of the skin causing it to evaporate lowering overall body temperature. This moisture management makes the garment  more comfortable  and allows the body  to perform at its best.After all we all need all the help we can get.

Spotted, this week's Dream bike....if only!

The Merida REACTO DA LTD

Seen resting in the sun at the Oakham Buttercross is this lovely Merida Reacto DA Ltd bike. Oh to give such a bike a spin around our lovely Rutland countryside and watch the Strava segment times fall away........

We have one in stock at the shop if you are interested in a great next purchase !

The Merida Reacto DA Ltd is a Pro Tour level carbon road bike, with Shimano Dura Ace groupset. Merida Reacto DA Ltd edition bike is the same frame platform favoured by Team Lampre Merida in the UCI Pro Tour. Reacto balances aerodynamics, acceleration and handling with long ride comfort. The Reacto is designed to minimise the effect of air resistance on the bike, maximising speed without sacrificing other factors such as weight, stiffness and comfort.

This means the Reacto retains the versatility and comfort of a road bike, but takes off when you put the foot down, and holds its balance well at high speed. This balance makes it a particularly good bike choice for triathletes, as it takes some of its cues from a time trial bike, while still having the versatility of a road bike that can be ridden anywhere. This means one bike that can be used for training and racing, with the addition of tri bars creating a formidable weapon for any bike leg.
