Cheshire based carbon fibre specialist Sigmatex has teamed up with manufacturer Orro to create a range of new road bikes.
Orro’s Gold Signature bike can be painted to a bespoke design. Orro’s Gold range is the flagship model, described as a ‘real world performance bike’. The bikes utilise the innovative ‘sigmaST’ product – Sigmatex’s spread tow carbon fibre textile solution.
The Gold Signature bikes utilise Sigmatex’s most advanced textile solution, ‘sigmaST’ to support Orro’s objectives around weight and strength. 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.”
sigmaST is a carbon fibre textile, increasingly used for its lightweight nature and improved mechanical performance when compared to traditional carbon textiles. The material is 20% lighter than traditional carbon fabrics and has an excellent strength to weight ratio.
