Orro has released its new Terra C model road bike, which features sigmaIF, a combination of Innegra and Sigmatex carbon fibres, to produce a completely redesigned frame.

Orro’s 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 offers improved impact resistance and damping properties – absorbing energy and reducing vibrations, which makes for a smoother ride.

According to Orro, with sigmaIF it has been possible to completely customise the fibres to improve the strength in critical areas to ward off rock strikes and other such impacts.

In addition to cycling, sigmaIF has been used in sporting applications including paddle boards, ice hockey sticks and surfboards. The material is said to have a greater damage tolerance which reduces failure in such applications where impact resistance is essential.
