French squad Cofidis have the recently remodelled Ordu frame at their disposal when they race against the clock.
A lot of thought has gone into the forks on this particular model. They are a lot wider than on many bikes designed with aero in mind – this is to better displace turbulence from ‘real world’ variables such as crosswinds. Of course, the wheels have a lot to do with this. Rudy Molard has gone for a Vision Metron disc in the rear and a 3-Spoke in the front.
The full aero theme continues to the Vision Metron carbon chainset, with 54/42 chainrings and an 11-25 cassette.
Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 provides the shifting – the electronic groupset allows Molard to shift up and down from both the base bars and the skis, with brake levers at the base bars only.
Finishing off, GCN’ve got a single Tacx aero bottle cage on the seattube and a Prologo T Gale time trial-specific saddle.
