We had the challenge to the design the new Ordu for Orbea. The aim was to create a faster, lighter and more specific bike. It needed to adapt to the UCI rules for professional road cyclists so they could compete with it.
Orbea design process is based on teamwork. Engineers and designers working together to meet requirements related to aerodynamics, efficiency , weight and integration of elements. It is a process where everyone contributes , intensive work to make the best taking into account multiple factors, limitations and requirements.
We created together the best posible versión, the bike is composed with the most aerodunamic profiles and integrated elements in order to reduce air friction.
The FreeFlow fork spreads its arms out of this zone of high pressure and high resistance to reduce pressure and turbulences. The normal aerodynamics directional doesn’t change, but the bike gains in speed due to the air space within the fork Freeflow is less chaotic .
The result is a powerful bike with optimum performance in the wind tunnel.
