Orro releases new Terra C gravel bike with UK geometry

Full carbon gravel bike with protection where it counts

Only a few years old, Sussex-based Orro is expanding its line-up of bikes again with the new Terra C gravel bike. Orro’s bikes are designed in the UK as well as finished and assembled in Britain.

With the Ditchling Beacon testing grounds close by, Orro has given the Terra C a brand new geometry, along with a special carbon layup involving Innegra carbon at the damage-prone areas of the bottom bracket and insides of the fork legs and chainstays, for claimed impact protection and vibration damping.

Orro Terra C features

  • Carbon frame
  • UK-inspired gravel geometry
  • Innegra impact protection
  • 42mm tyre clearance
  • Sizes: X-Small, Small, Medium, Large, X-Large
  • Full mudguard and rear rack mounts

New geometry

The new geometry is said to be based off of specific testing around the South Downs. To maximise the riding there, the Terra C uses a 71-degree head angle and a stability enhancing 72mm bottom bracket drop throughout all sizes. The fork rake sits at 50mm to add a bit of quickness back to the ride.

Interestingly, each frame size has a specific chainstay length. Orro says this is to limit heel rub and have equal weight distribution across all of the sizes.

With the updated geometry, Orro states the Terra C will remove the distinction between road and trail.
