Are carbon road bikes worth it?
While carbon road bikes are more expensive, they are certainly worth it if you are looking to instantly improve your speed. Our Venturi STC range of carbon road bikes are made with specialised STC (spread tow carbon) from Sigmatex, and are impossibly light.
What is a carbon road bike?
Made from weaving carbon fibre strands and setting with a hard epoxy resin, carbon road bike frames are very light, strong, and stiff. The material is easy to craft into aerodynamic shapes, and allows engineers to play with variable strength or flex in crucial areas of the bike. Carbon allows for lighter frames, with more durability.
Is carbon better than an aluminium road bike?
Whether carbon road bikes are better than aluminium or titanium road bikes depends on the type of cyclist you are and what you’re looking for. If you’re looking for speed, stability and impact resistance on a bike that will look impeccable for years to come, we recommend going carbon. But who are we to decide for you? Our advice is to test both and see which ride you personally prefer.
What is the life expectancy of a carbon road bike?
Carbon is the way to go if you want a bike that will last. Carbon doesn’t fatigue over time, and bar any major impacts or abuse, your carbon bike frame will be as good in 20 years time as the day you bought it.
Do carbon bikes crack easily?
The short answer is no. The long answer is definitely not. Our Orro carbon road bikes are made with STC (spread tow carbon) using Sigmatex technology. Let’s just say you won’t find a better, faster, lighter, and more durable carbon road bike anywhere on the market.
Are carbon road bikes the same as racing Aero bikes?
Yes. Our Orro carbon bikes are designed for speed. Engineered with lightweight STC (spread tow carbon), and boasting tube profiles for optimum aerodynamic performance, our carbon road bikes are the ideal racing bike for amateur or professional cyclists and hobbyists alike. They are even used by many professional riders and UK Pro Team, Orro Trainsharp Elite, who we now sponsor.
What groupsets do you offer for the Venturi?
We offer a range of high end and high spec groupsets that can be added to our Venturi carbon bike range, including the Di2 and the Ultegra series. Our Orro bikes are built with all our riders and their groupset loyalties in mind.
