Orbea have created a custom Orca OMX for Lisa Brennauer in her German Championship colours using Orbea’s MyO system which allows people to design their own bike. Our partner Orbea who hail from the Basque Country have created a one off special for Brennauer to celebrate her German championship win from 2019, where she won the title for the second time in her career.
As it was a surprise for Lisa, of course it was love at first sight. “I received the bike in the middle of the Coronavirus lockdown at a point where probably some other riders had been stuck in uncertainty about race schedules, training plans and whether there’s going to be any racing this year. It’s been great motivation for me to keep going to train hard and keep following my dreams. I want to thank you Orbea for this big surprise!”
“I like the fact that it’s completely matte black. That it shows my country colours proud, with the customised Lizard Skins bar-tape, and my CUORE of Switzerland champion’s kit, it all fits together so perfectly. This bike is a big reward for hard work and dedication to the sport I love so much.”
But it’s not just the looks of the bike and special meaning that make this bike unique, on the technical side it’s also the way the bike handles that Brennauer is attracted to the ORCA OMX.
“The way it directly follows my steering around corners, the stiffness when I go out of my saddle to accelerate. It’s the perfect mix of stiffness, agility, speed and weight.”
Lisa has been training on the new bike over the last couple of months, and with racing on the horizon it won’t be long before it’s put through its paces in a racing environment.
