Orbea Ordu M10i LTD


$8,999, Orbea.com
The draw: Most impressive update

The fifth generation of the Ordu is the fastest, lightest, most user-friendly Ordu yet. The blades of the fork splay outward to reduce turbulent airflow between the wheel and frame. The fork is also designed to integrate seamlessly with the center-bolt TriRig Omega X brakes, which supply abundant stopping power and are simple to adjust (a magnetic cover pops off to expose the calipers). The Ordu feels light, snappy and handles well on hilly, technical roads. Storage boxes can attach to bolts placed on the back of the frame and top tube. The cockpit isn’t integrated, but the stem tucks nicely into the frame for a clean front end. The only flaw with this bike’s specs is the absence of Di2 shifters on the basebar.
