2014 Orbea Ordu Time Trial Frameset
The fastest bike ever in Ironman triathlon the Orbea Ordu is the perfect bike for any time trial or triathlon. Orbea's Aizone, Attraction, Internal DCR and Monocoque features truly set this bike apart from the competition.
AIZONE: Orbea created AIZonE because Orbea recognize that aerodynamics and rigidity are the most important parameters to consider when developing fast bicycles. Both must be optimized to create a bicycle frame that is not only fast, but that can also efficiently transmit your power to the rear wheel. Orbea's goal is to reduce the aerodynamic drag without detriment to the stiffness of the frame creating faster, more stable bikes. These developments ensure that you can go as fast as possible while using a minimum amount of energy.
ATTRACTION: Attraction insulates you from the realities of the road surface. This allows you to ride at peak performance, have more control, and benefit from more traction at all times. When you hit bumps, the compressive forces are converted into shear movement in the shaped bends on the seatstays. This conversion of forces absorbs energy from the bumps and improves comfort over rough roads. While Attraction allows you to ride faster and farther, it has no effect on the ability of the rear triangle to transfer your power from the pedals to the pavement. Attraction is where comfort and performance are one.
INTERNAL DCR: Orbea created the Internal DCR system to ensure that you get the best performance possible. The heart of our Direct Cable Routing system is a cable set that provides a sealed inner wire for the complete length of each cable. Without the possibility of contamination and the higher drag inherent in traditional housing, Internal DCR reduces friction in the system by up to 25%. You'll have a lighter and more precise feel at the levers. All of the housing, liners, and wires are run inside the frame for supreme aerodynamics without aesthetic disruption. Internal DCR is a system where function, simplicity, and tidiness are paramount.
MONOCOQUE: Monocoque guarantees a carbon structure with optimum performance and long term reliability, and it’s the only way we’ve ever done it. We mold the one-piece structures so that each tube is connected to the next, with continuous fibers through each critical juncture. As you ride, your bike will be subjected to a variety of forces – tension, compression, torsion, etc. Our monocoque frames allow optimal distribution of these forces over the entire structure because of the perfect fusion of the composite materials. This is why we can offer a lifetime warranty. Monocoque assures a stable structure with properties that are guaranteed not to change over time.
