Orbea Ordu GDR

The draw: IM bike split record holder

After a long wait, Orbea has created a bike specifically for triathletes, not time trialists. Although road racers can certainly use this machine, it is Orbea’s first bike with a steep tri-specific seat tube angle—a must for aero fit. The front-end aerobar attachment system uses a rotating stem piece that affixes the bars to the frame. With multiple-length stems, it can fit a range of positions and is best suited to those on the aggressive end of the spectrum. The external front brake ensures easy service and ideal function, and the Sram Red component group completes a first-class build.
