Orbea Ordu

The Ordu is for the triathlete or time trialist looking to upgrade an existing bike to something faster, lighter and more aero specific. The Ordu is also the choice of elite or professional road racers who need a UCI-legal time trial bike. Ordu is the racing platform of Team Cofidis, UHC Pro Cycling, Visit Dallas DNA Pro Cycling Team and Orbea/Orca Pro Triathletes.

As Orbea put it “Ordu translates to “moment” in the Basque language. It’s the perfect name for a bike created to capture the efforts of your hard training and distill them into the present, a single focus on having the time of your life. The time you push so deep into the tunnel you can’t recall the minutes spent on the road. When heart rate, wattage and gear selection completely vanish from your perception and it is only you and the bike. We all know moments like this – the rarest of events when somehow you ride beyond your capabilities and do the perfect effort. Everything clicks into place and you have the time of your life.

The Ordu was the first bike to feature the advanced aerodynamics of Orbea’s Freeflow Fork.  Aerodynamic forks are typically designed to perform like aero frame tubes – optimized for directional movement through the wind. But the forward rotation of the spokes and today’s wider rims and tires approaching from behind the fork (against the flow of wind as the wheel spins) creates a high pressure/high drag zone. Freeflow spreads the fork legs away from this area to reduce pressure and turbulence. Normal directional aerodynamics remain unchanged but the bike gets faster because the airspace inside the Freeflow fork blades is less chaotic.

Orbea works directly with aerodynamic specialists at Mondragon University in the Basque Country to analyze and test aero concepts. The resulting improvements to a traditional aerofoil are aimed specifically at helping riders go faster in the conditions that they typically encounter out on the road rather than the wind tunnel – faster at lower that aircraft speeds and faster at higher yaw (or crosswind) angles.

The Ordu was designed under the premise that there’s no reason to settle for an almost perfect riding position. With a calculated linear progression between sizes and the frankly massive range of saddle positions made possible by the Ordu’s symmetrical seat post, you’ll never have the nagging feeling that you’d be faster “if only…”

The size range of XS through XL ensures that anyone can ride an Ordu, no matter how large or small.  There are instances in the market when the smallest sizes do not offer shorter reach (length) measurements and do not bring the head tube (therefore the handlebars) any closer to the rider than the next bigger size. Orbea use a totally different set of design parameters, where each individual tube is manufactured for a specific size of bike or rider – rather than attempting to re-use tubes or molds to keep production costs to a minimum.  The result is fewer compromises in angles and length, leading to frames that allow the Ordu to fit a wider range of riders and follow a more linear size progression.

The Ordu is loaded with versatility and clever design. When needed, an optional seat tube storage box and top tube-mounted bag keep tools and food out of your pockets and quickly accessible. Multiple bottle mounts and triple bosses on the down tube mean several options for configuring water bottles whether you want maximum capacity or ultimate aerodynamics.

Multisport Geometry

Ordu uses a clever aero-oval seat post that includes two clamps that vary setback by 23 and 49MM. In addition, the shaft itself can be reversed to give almost 100mm of total adjustable range. Whether you are aiming for a fit as radical as possible, or trying to keep your saddle position within UCI regulations, this post will help you do it.  Five frame sizes and our no nonsense Linear Stack and Reach geometry means Ordu will be a race-winner for the widest range of fit.

An understanding of stack and reach can explain why many small bikes don’t fit well. There are instances in the market when the smallest sizes do not offer shorter reach measurements and do not bring the head tube (therefore the handlebars) any closer to the rider than the next bigger size. How does the manufacturer advertise a full size range then, based on top tube lengths? What we’re suggesting is an evolution in bike geometry. It’s a different way to look at how to design and build bike frames that allows the Ordu to fit a wider range of riders and follow a more linear size progression. The size range of XS through XL ensures that anyone can ride an Ordu, no matter how large or small. The progressive sizing ensures that subsequent sizes grow in a linear and predictable fashion.

The simple standard stem allows the use of any 11/8” stem on the market as well as any aerobar of your choice. This makes the Ordu the easiest bike to fit.

Mondragon Tube Shapes

BB Stiffness

The Ordu OMP utilizes a BB386 bottom bracket. The 46mm press-fit cups inside a wider shell ensure optimal stiffness and larger the bearings offer increased durability and maintenance. BB386 is the friendliest frame standard for 30mm and 24mm cranks. We’ve increased the BB stiffness in the frame to a level that rivals most road frames while still being super aero.

Electronic or Mechanical Shifting

Ordu is ready for electronic or mechanical shifting – the choice is yours to make. Cables enter the top tube behind the stem for clean, aerodynamic routing and streamlined shifting performance.

Ordu’s Hatchback technology hides a Shimano Di2 battery behind a port in the rear wheel cutout for easy access and simple setup. Once installed the battery can remain in the frame during transportation.

Brakes

Ordu is compatible with any standard center-bolt road brake caliper, but is specifically optimized for the TriRig Omega X brake system. Shapes and angles flow together with almost no gap between brake and frame. A rear cable stop port in the rear of the seat tube provides a clean exit for the brake cable to travel directly to the caliper with no extra housing in the wind. It’s minimalist, aero and beautiful without the hassle of finicky proprietary braking systems inside the fork or under the bottom bracket.

Mini Tapered Head Tube

Rear Dropouts

Semi-vertical dropouts make wheel changes faster. No fiddling with rear-facing dropouts or adjusters.

Multi Mount System

The Ordu is loaded with versatility and clever design. When needed, an optional seat tube storage box and top tube-mounted bag keep tools and food out of your pockets and quickly accessible. Multiple bottle mounts and triple bosses on the down tube mean several options for configuring water bottles whether you want maximum capacity or ultimate aerodynamics.

MyO Custom Colours

For years the flexibility of Orbea’s MyO programme has allowed riders to personalize their bikes to an extent that is unique in the industry. Now Orbea have taken it one step further by giving you the option of a fully custom coloured Ordu Team frameset that is painted and assembled entirely at their headquarters in Mallabia – in the heart of the Basque Country.

Orbea’s in-house manufacturing capabilities and know-how allow them to pay meticulous attention to every step of the MyO process so all you have to do is choose the colours, select your component options and, if you would like to, add your name to the top tube. Designing your dream bike incurs no additional cost for any  Ordu Team model, and your MyO bike will be delivered to you in an average of six weeks after placing your order.

The MyO programme also offers a limited number of component options, but for full bespoke builds the Orbea Ordu is available as a frameset (with MyO paint, free of charge) for full custom specification here at Epic Cycles.
