2017 Orbea Ordu M20i Bike
Is a triathlon bike possible that works just as well for beginners as it does for pros? A bike that is lightweight, fast and aerodynamic, yet still UCI legal? Yes, it is.
The Ordu M20i, M20 and M30 differ from the other Ordu bikes in their base frame: the OME (Orbea Monocoque Evolution) frame. High modulus fibers are blended with standard carbon fibers in order to achieve a balance of performance and durability, while creating a more affordable frame.The OME was designed to have great aerodynamic shaping while still having a UCI legal frame and fork. The more linear size progression of the OME means that anyone can fit on an Ordu OME. The Ordu OME is also stiffer than its predecessor, making it faster and more powerful..
Compared to the OMP frame, the OME is both shorter and taller where it needs to be for comfort. The riding position remains comfortable for 5+ hour days on an ironman bike leg. The brakes on the Ordu OME are traditional calipers put in a place that makes fixing and adjusting them easy. There is clearance for 25c bigger tires which adds to the versatility of the bike, and all power meters and chainrings are compatible. So this is obviously a bike you can modify.
So this bike works for pros and beginners alike, it’s UCI legal, it's customizable, and it is a huge improvement to earlier models. It might be time to upgrade your ride.
