ORBEA Ordu M20 2018
|Options||Size: M; Colour: Satin Black/Red; In Stock|
The Ordu M20 is your upgrade up from the road bike with clip-ons you've been racing, the ticket to improving your personal best. With an OME frame built with Shimano's brand new Ultegra R8000 groupset, the Ordu can handle anything you can throw at it and then some.
Ordu translates to "moment" in the Basque language. It's the perfect name for a bike to capture hard training and distil it into the present, a 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 everything vanishes from your perception and it's only you and the bike. We all know moments like this - the moments when you ride beyond your capabilities into the perfect effort. Getting serious was never so easy on the Ordu M20.
- Aerodynamic design:
The leading edge of the Ordu OME frameset received the highest priority for aerodynamic shaping. The straight 1 1/8" steerer tube allows a narrow headtube that minimises frontal area. At only 38mm wide, it decreases aerodynamic drag by integrating smoothly into the main triangle, making this critical area more slippery and smoothing airflow across the frame. Triathletes are not the only riders who can benefit from these advantages - the frame and fork are UCI legal, making the Ordu OME a serious contender for use in sanctioned Time Trial events.
Any standard front or rear road brake caliper can be employed, making it user-friendly and ready to accept the best the market has to offer. To further reduce drag the Ordu OME gets internal cable routing and EC/DC (Electronic Cable/Direct Cable) compatibility. This means it is optimised for traditional mechanical or electronic shifting. The cables or wires enter the downtube only to emerge where necessary to connect each individual component. The exposed cables are limited to a bare minimum with every effort made to shave unwanted aerodynamic drag.
Frame tube intersections are all extended and smoothed to maximum benefit. Mounting bosses are placed carefully in locations where they will provide the most aerodynamic gain - a top tube mount behind the stem allows an optional tool/nutrition bag that actually improves drag numbers. Three mounts on the downtube allow the use of an optional aerodynamic bottle mounted low, or two standard bottles mounted in more traditional locations.
- Monocoque Carbon:
Monocoque construction guarantees a carbon structure with optimum performance and long term reliability and it's the only way Orbea have ever done it. Orbea mould the one-piece structures so that each tube is connected to the next, with continuous fibres through each critical juncture. As you ride, your bike will be subjected to a variety of forces such as tension, compression and torsion. The monocoque frames allow optimal distribution of these forces over the entire structure because of the perfect fusion of the composite materials. OME Carbon construction takes advantage of blending high modulus fibres with standard carbon fibres to reach an optimum balance of performance, durability, and value.
While aerodynamics push frame design toward narrower tubes that present the smallest possible face to the breeze, a frame must be rigid to transfer energy to the rear wheel. Advantages gained against the wind should not be surrendered to flex, brake rub or questionable handling. The Ordu OME is more aerodynamic than its predecessor and is significantly stiffer as well. This translates to a faster bike that handles better and delivers more power to the road.
- Triathlon geometry fit and philosophy - Smart sizing to fit the widest range of men and women:
Stack and reach are important measurements because they define the spatial relationships of two important contact points between your body and the bike's pedals and handlebars. Stack is the vertical distance from the centre of the bottom bracket to the top of the headtube. Reach is the horizontal distance from the centre of the bottom bracket to that same point - the top centre of the headtube. 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 Orbea are 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 OME to fit a wider range of riders and follow a more linear size progression. The size range includes XS, S, M, and L sizes and ensures that anyone can ride an Ordu OME, no matter how large or small. The progressive sizing ensures that the XS bike indeed offers the smallest fit and that subsequent sizes grow in a linear and predictable fashion.
- Internal Direct Cable Routing:
Helps protects the cables, reduces friction, and enhances durability. Thanks to internal routing and a fully a sealed cable system with Teflon coated inner wires and a slick polyester sleeve, the risk of contamination is lessened and friction is reduced by up to 25%. DCR produces a lighter and more precise feel at the levers - function, simplicity, and tidiness are paramount. Less traditional cable housing also means that system weight is reduced.
The Orbea EC/DC or Electronic Circuit/Direct Cable system is compatible with electronic or mechanical shifting - the choice is yours to make. EC/DC relies on built-in pathways that ease the installation of cables or wires and results in streamlined, flawless shifting performance.
- Press-fit BB:
The Ordu OME is designed around a press-fit (BB86) bottom bracket system. The wider shell ensures optimal stay placement for stiffness and efficiency when you hammer on the pedals. The press-fit system offers less opportunity for contamination and reduced maintenance.
