Orbea launches the new Ordu to the market: ergonomics and aerodynamics at the service of triathlon

Orbea has completely redesigned the Ordu frame to create the most ergonomic and aerodynamic bicycle on the market. It is a weapon focused on the use of triathlon.

The fundamental advantages for the user of this new Ordu platform come from the following benefits:


We have worked with different user groups to optimize the existing geometry and adapt it to the needs of Triathletes. The biggest change compared to the previous model is in:
– Angulación de tubo sillín, que ahora son 78º
– Reach
– Stack
– Tecnología Monolink aplicada a potencia para ofrecer el máximo rango de posicionamiento de manillar


The Aizone (Aerodynamic Investigation Zone) project developed by Orbea in the Wind Tunnel has allowed us to generate extensive knowledge on aerodynamics, which translates into the following arguments:
- Optimal rigidity: The power generated by the cyclist is optimally transferred to the development or slip of the corridor.
- Perfect aerodynamic coefficient: The incidence of the bicycle through the air is the most balanced in the market.
All this knowledge is expressed in the following areas of the table:
– Fork with 1:4 proportions that minimizes the frontal surface of the assembly and improves the coefficient of aerodynamic penetration
- Steering zone with power and integrated fork, which minimize the aerodynamic coefficient of the set
- Diagonal tube seat tube and seatpost of minimum thickness
- Braces glued to the box for the projected area of ​​the set
- Rear brakes on the bottom bracket

Why Ordu

Ordu is a unique model that covers user needs that has focused all development efforts on the 3 needs detected in users:

– Ergonomía: contamos con una nueva geometría en 4 tallas XS ( con rueda de 650), S, M y L que cubren un amplio espectro de usuarios
– Aerodinámica: se han trabajado cada una de las partes que forman el cuadro, la horquilla y el conjunto de dirección para minimizar el CdA: coeficiente de penetración aerodinámica y el área proyectada. Porque lo más aerodinámico no es lo más rápido:
- max (K / CdA) W corridor = W friction + W aerodynamics + W gravity
– Diseño. Producto Orbea Design bajo en proceso definido por la casa donde el usuario es el centro de todo el desarrollo, desde el inicio hasta el momento de la entrega.

Angulation 74º-80º

The Ordu frame allows an angulation range from 74º to 80º. To do this, two seat posts are used that cover the angles 74º-76º and 78º-80º. The advantage is clear compared to other systems:

• Allows a greater range of positions for the cyclist so that they can adapt their position and achieve more efficient pedalling.
• 74º-76º allows a pedaling position close to that of a traditional road bike. Normally recommended for mixed or uphill routes.
• 78º-80º allows a more advanced pedaling position, especially advantageous on flat terrain where more pedaling power can be squeezed.
