CADEX’s Tri frameset and aero wheels look to the past for the future of bike design

21 December 2022

“CADEX has officially launched the Tri frameset, its new triathlon-specific bike with a design that harks back to the monocoque frames of the 1990s.”

The recently launched CADEX Tri is a bike designed so break records, partnering up with Olympic Gold medallist Kristian Blummenfelt. Blummenflelt had already tested the new bike which led him to win the delayed 2021 Ironman World Championship in May 2022, whilst being the first man ever to complete an Ironman Triathlon in under 7 hours.

Learn what BikeRadar’s Simon Von Bromley makes of the CADEX Tri Frmeset as he goes into full details of the spec.

Endurance Aero

“As well as being aerodynamically efficient (because there’s less material to interrupt the airflow), the missing top tube is an ideal feature for a triathlon-specific bike, because it makes it easier to access the bike’s integrated storage systems in its massive down tube.”

Double-crown fork

“This design is claimed to afford the CADEX Tri frameset “class-leading pedalling and torsional stiffness”, for improved power transfer and handling performance.”

Perfect fit

“CADEX has designed the aero cockpit of the Tri frameset in conjunction with Sync (a company that specialises in making ergonomic time trial and triathlon cockpits), to be highly and easily adjustable with basic tools.”

Easy travelling

“The frameset will ship with its own dedicated case, created in collaboration with Topeak, with a specially designed padding system and wheel bags.”
