2012 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide: Bikes Part Two

Orbea Ordu SDR $4,399

Incredible stiffness and precise handling are the hallmarks of the Orbea Ordu. If the bike’s demanding geometry matches your position, few tri bikes ride as nicely as this one. The Shimano Dura-Ace components complement the highly functional frame design with impeccable shifting and braking performance. It lacks narrow tube shapes and front-end integration featured on some competing bikes, but the frame’s ride experience is truly cutting-edge. Orbea.com
