The £3000 price point has a number of offerings from the usual players and most have Shimano’s next to top Ultegra groupset, but only the Dama M10 from Spanish bike manufacturer Orbea has Di2 electronic gearing.
The frame quality and performance oriented components make this a good choice, and you’ll look and feel like you’re riding something more expensive.
The Orca Dama Bronze carbon frame and fork are designed for female riders in mind and the monocoque design allows the use of some really unique shaped tubing – namely the highly bended seat tubes which absorb energy from bumps and rough roads.
We can’t fault the specification on the Dama M10 women’s road bike, we have the rare fortune of a complete Shimano Ultegra groupset complemented by Mavic Aksium wheels that don’t disappoint either.
