Don´t Just Finish - Crush It!




The Ordu OME has been designed to push you past what you thought was possible – to that magical day when you don’t feel the wind or relent to the pain – when you don’t just finish the race, you crush it.

The New Ordu

The New Ordu Competition always produces your finest efforts. Going beyond yourself in the pursuit of excellence, the sensation of controlled physical chaos, the satisfaction of knowing that nothing was left in reserve – these are the reasons you show up to race. Personal goals are established, reached or exceeded. Success can come in small increments or spectacular breakthroughs that provide mental fuel for a long season.

The leading edge of the Ordu OME frameset received the highest priority for aerodynamic shaping. The straight 1–1/8” steerer tube allows a narrow headtube that minimizes frontal area. At only 38mm wide, it decreases aerodynamic drag by integrating smoothly into the main triangle, making this critical area more slippery and smoothing airflow across the frame. Triathletes are not the only riders who can benefit from these advantages - the frame and fork are UCI legal, making the Ordu OME a serious contender for use in sanctioned Time Trial events. Any standard road bike front or rear brake can be employed, making it user-friendly and ready to accept the best the market has to offer.

Bradley Weiss

Sublime Start to 2014 Season

Orca athlete Bradley Weiss has started his international season like a house on fire with eight races in 10 weeks and no performance worse than 4th place. Bradley is currently in second place on the US Xterra rankings after finishing 2nd in Xterra Las Vegas and 3rd this past Saturday at Xterra Alabama.

He also finished on the podium in every race except the Asia-Pacific Championships in Australia.

“I am certainly in the form of my life. I have been blessed with very few injuries throughout my career and this has aided in constant gains in all fields of the sport. I still have lots to improve on but I am very happy with my current form and hope to keep building towards Xterra World Championships in Maui. I plan to make a few waves with my debut in October later this year.”

Andrew Starykowicz 70.3 Puerto Rico

Andrew Starykowicz Repeats Victory At Ironman 70.3 Puerto Rico



Andrew Starykovicz climbed atop the podium once again at Ironman 70.3 Puerto Rico. The triathlete of Orbea Orca Triathlon Team put up an amazing performance as usual, taking control of the race on his Ordu to earn his second consecutive win in San Juan.

Germany’s Andi Boecherer was at the front after completing the 1.9km swim, with Starykowicz and Great Britain’s Will Clarke a few seconds back. The setting was great for the American triathlete of Orbea Orca Triathlon Team to start the engine on the 90km bike course, and Andrew’s spark-ignition on his Orbea bike came soon.

‘Mr. 402’ dropped strong rivals behind one by one, putting on a 5:27 gap on Boecherer and 6:21 on Clarke, with Collins almost 9 minutes down at T2. In the 21km run, the leading trio were likely to land on the podium. It was soon clear that the Briton had very strong legs, as halfway down the marathon Clarke overpowered Boecherer and set sight on Starykowicz. He was unable to bridge the gap the man sponsored by Orbea and Orca had built in the bike leg, though.

Following his 5th spot at Ironman Panama and his great performance at Ironman 70.3 California, Starykowicz has come back to the top of the podium with his second win at Ironman 70.3 Puerto Rico. We think this will be another great year for the triathlete of Orbea Orca Triathlon Team. Congratulations, Andrew!

Orbea Avant Cycling Plus Award

Orbea Avant Takes Cycling Plus Award.

In the recent Cycling Plus ‘Bikes of the Year’ awards,’ Orbea has been awarded the Best Disc Brake bike accolade for its new Avant.

"A truly stunning frameset which delivers a beautiful ride with excellent braking" was the assessment of the Cycling Plus team following their time with the Avant.

The Avant project has a geometry has been defined as ‘Sportive’ by Orbea, which means capable of delivering all-day riding pleasure, without compromising on performance when called upon to deliver in a sprint or a spirited KOM effort. The reviewers noted this, stating that the geometry ‘suggest a stable, predictable and ‘possibly’ dull straightforward sportive bike, what you actually get is a steed that’s bursting with fun.’

Orbea’s commitment to the Disc Brake concept is clearly visible throughout the Avant range, with no less than five models available with disc brake options, four carbon and one alloy. The testers also noted thatOrbea’s ability to customize components for the consumer means that the basic package can be upgraded in key areas such as drivetrain, wheels and finishing kit, which makes the Avant one of the most flexible packages on the market.

New Orbea Rallon

New Orbea Rallon: We may not be racing but that doesn´t mean I am not trying to beat you!

Low, long and slack with 160mm of gravity-tuned travel, the Rallon can get you to the bottom of the hill as quickly as you dare. Short stays and a steep seat angle give the agility and efficiency to pedal up for one more lap.

Advanced Dynamics 

Advanced Dynamics is the heart of every Orbea suspension bike. It is a process we developed in conjunction with CEIT (Technological Research and Studies Center of Gipuzkoa, Basque Country) that allows us to model and test our suspension platforms.

The result is a dynamic suspension system that is tuned for variable trail conditions with a leverage rate curve that is specifically matched to the spring and damper. Advanced Dynamics transforms virtual designs into real, highly-refined machines. Bikes for demanding riders that are faster, more fun to ride and far beyond ordinary.
