Company: Flevobike Technology
For the Orca (the new and improved version of the well known Versatile) we aimed at developing more comfort, better riding characteristics and more safety.
The Orca has a fully enclosed drive train. This is a unique drive train technology, which offers thousands of kilometres of maintenance free and care free cycling pleasure.
All three single sided wheels (20” – 406) are engineered with suspension. The front wheels are equipped with drum brakes and the rear wheel with a disc brake (also parking brake).
With special flexible components, the wheels are being mounted to the self supporting chassis. In this way all vibrations from the road surface will be absorbed and not passed on to the chassis.
Because of the large cover which can be opened with a hinge and the absence of a traditional handle bar, getting in to and getting out of the Orca is a piece of cake.
The Orca is being operated by 2 control sticks, a left hand stick and a right hand stick, both assembled on the inside of the chassis on the wheel covers. The operation is very user friendly, natural and only needs a little training. Steering the Orca can be done with one hand only, left or right, or with both hands.
The same goes for the braking of the Orca; left hand or right hand or both, it doesn’t matter, both drum brakes will be actuated simultaneously.
The position of the crank axle and the rider’s seat are both fully adjustable. Therefore the Orca can fit all riders with a stature height from 1.65 to 2.00m.
