The Ordu Gold Electronic is the premier time trial/triathlon bike from Orbea. It’s the exact same as the Ordu Gold, though it’s made specifically for use with electronic shifting components like Shimano’s Dura-Ace and Ultegra Di2 or the forthcoming Campagnolo electronic group. It comes pre-wired for Dura-Ace Di2. The wiring for the shifters runs internally, and it has a dedicated battery mount on the left chainstay for clean aerodynamics. One of the best aspects of electronic shifting is that you can have shift buttons on the aero bar extensions and on the base bar. So no matter the situation, the right gear is just at your fingertips.

Like the Orca Gold, the Ordu Gold is made with Orbea’s Gold grade of ultra-high modulus carbon fiber. It was Orbea’s goal to provide an optimum blend of performance characteristics. Of course, aerodynamic efficiency was paramount, but so was stiffness because a slippery shape is nothing without efficient Orbea Ordu Gold Electronic Detailpower transfer from the rider to the asphalt. This is why Orbea engineers used both wind tunnel results and FEA (finite element analysis) to fine-tune the shapes of the frame tubes. The combination of thoughtful design with the finest materials results in a bike that excels under the most powerful riders, and this is why it has won the Hawaii Ironman twice since its recent debut.

Aerodynamic details abound on the Ordu frameset, from the peaked head tube to the aero-section seat stays and the fully internal cable routing. The arcing seat tube may be one of the most distinctive aspects. While it may look similar to other bikes, for no other reason than the seat tube arcs closely along the diameter of the rear wheel, the Ordu uses Orbea’s Co-linear seat tube geometry. Look closely and you’ll see that the seat post still fits into the frame at an angle less than 90˚. The importance is that when you make seat height adjustments, the Ordu maintains the fore-aft relationship with regards to reach and proportional sizing. Your optimum fit is easy to find, especially since it comes with two seat posts that offer a whopping total angular range from 74 to 80 degrees.

Orbea molds the Ordu Gold frame and fork as monocoque structures. Each of these is formed as one piece without bonded joints where failures, either structural or cosmetic, can occur. With fibers running continuously along the length of the tubes and through the intersections, the total strength of the bike is increased along with the durability. This method is shared with the Silver version, but the number and orientation of the plies of carbon is different to give the Ordu Gold the intended physical properties. It’s lighter, stronger, and stiffer. Orbea also uses what they term as SSN (size specific nerve) technology. This ensures that they can produce frames that offer the same comfort and performance characteristics across the size range. To do this, they make each frame size with its own specific lay-up schedule and tube dimensions.

The Orbea Ordu Gold Electronic is available in Carbon/red or White/blue and four tailored sizes – 48, 51, 54, and 57cm. It comes with a matching Ordu monocoque full-carbon fork, integrated FSA headset, and two seatposts – one that offers two positions 74/76˚ and the other 78/80˚. The Ordu requires a braze-on front derailleur. All Orbea bicycle frames come with a lifetime warranty against manufacturing defect.
