Aerodynamic forks are typically designed to perform like aero frame tubes - optimized for directional movement through the wind. But the forward rotation of the spokes and today’s wider rims and tires approaching from behind the fork (against the flow of wind as the wheel spins) creates a high pressure/high drag zone. Freeflow spreads the fork legs away from this area to reduce pressure and turbulence. Normal directional aerodynamics remain unchanged but the bike gets faster because the airspace inside the Freeflow fork blades is less chaotic.
MONDRAGON TUBE SHAPES
Not many bike companies have the research and development capabilities of an Engineering School at their fingertips. Orbea works directly with specialists at Mondragon University in the Basque Country to analyze and test aerodynamic concepts. Our subtle improvements to a traditional airfoil are aimed specifically at helping riders go faster in conditions typically encountered on the road – Faster at lower speeds and faster at higher yaw angles.
- DOUBLE RADIUS - The double-radiused “bullet” leading edge opens airflow around the tube profile and improves airflow at higher yaw angles.
- FLATTENED SIDES - Flattening the sides of the airfoil reduces frontal area of the tube and offers better drag numbers at lower speeds.
- ABBREVIATED TAIL - A squared trailing edge “tricks” wind into thinking the shape continues to a point, but allows for a shallower tube and smooths airflow into bottle cages.
The headtubes of most performance bikes are tapered to optimize stiffness and minimize weight. But the frontal area of a standard 28.6 x 38mm tapered design interferes significantly with aerodynamics. We decided to go a different route. We developed a 25.4 x 28.6mm Mini Taper for the Ordu headtube and fork steerer tube. Air flows smoothly around the reduced frontal area and past a clever aerodynamic stem cover and continues unhindered. These solutions decrease drag by reducing frontal area by 10% over a straight 28.6mm design and save a few grams at the same time. No small improvement.

Shipping & Returns
all3sports.com ships throughout the 50 continental United States via UPS (United Parcel Service). We typically ship items immediately as they become available. Our goal is to inform you when an item is not available for immediate shipment. While you may receive more than one shipment per order, there is no additional shipping charge. We process orders on a first-come, first-served basis. In-stock items on orders placed before 3 PM EST will typically be shipped out the same day.
UPS does not ship to APO/FPO or P.O. Box addresses however we will gladly ship to APO/FPO addresses for members of the armed services using USPS. Please note in the special notes section of your cart that you require the order to be shipped to an APO/FPO address. Please be aware that the shipping rates shown during checkout are for reference only and that further costs may need to be added to insure the value of the items you have ordered.
Attempts to ship to a P.O. Box will delay and in most cases prevent delivery of your order.
