Orro Gold STC Ultegra Di2 review

This electronic-geared gran fondo bike from a young, innovative British brand caught our attention with its good looks and well judged geometry

Orro Gold STC Ultegra Di2

Orro calls the Gold STC its figurehead – it’s a bike specifically designed for gran fondo riding made from a striking-looking specialist carbon-fibre from fellow British brand Sigmatex. We’ve been impressed with the detail that’s gone into the design of the Orro Gold STC Ultegra Di2 – it not only looks beautiful but has a stunning ride feel, landing it a well deserved spot in Editor’s Choice 2017.

Orro is based in East Sussex at the foot of Ditchling Beacon. The British brand is not yet as well known as its neighbouring hill, which has hosted both the Tour de France and the national hill-climb championships as well having a reputation as being the most feared section of the annual London-Brighton, but if it continues to produce bikes as good as the Gold STC Ultegra Di2, it will soon be breathing the same refined air.
