Team Cofidis’ Orbea Ordu Time Trial Bike

Team Cofidis’ Orbea Ordu Time Trial Bike


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.
