Sigmatex teams up with Orro to create ‘real world’ performance bikes

Sigmatex has announced a collaboration with Orro, a British bike manufacturer, on its new range of elite road bikes. Orro’s objective is to create the best and most stylish bikes for serious riders. The company uses the latest pioneering materials such as ‘sigmaST’, Sigmatex’s spread tow carbon fibre textile solution, for their flagship Gold Signature bike model.

SigmaST is used to support Orro’s objectives around lightweighting and strength on the Gold Signature bikes. Adam Glew from Orro said: “It’s fantastic to have a top British carbon manufacturer in Sigmatex on board to help keep Orro at the forefront of cycling innovation.”

Increasingly used for its lightweight nature and improved mechanical performance when compared to traditional carbon textiles, sigmaST is claimed to be 20% lighter than traditional carbon fabrics and has a high strength to weight ratio. This technology is suited to applications in such industries where there is an increasing demand for strength and stiffness combined with low weight.
