It’s not derived from a road bike, or even a time trial bike. It doesn’t play by those rules. The all-new CADEX Tri frameset is a no-holds-barred triathlon machine—no restrictions, no limitations. It’s designed, engineered and put to the test by the world’s fastest triathletes in a bold quest to push the sport forward. It rewrites the rules.There’s nothing conventional about this bike. The frame, with it radical monocoque design, unlocks a new level of aero efficiency. It gives triathletes an entirely new way to access nutrition, hydration and other essentials right from their racing position without the wind ever noticing. It’s all right there, tucked inside the aero down tube, invisible to the wind.

It’s not enough to be fast in a wind tunnel. To make real-world gains in an Ironman race, an athlete must hold their aero-optimized riding position for 180km. That’s why the CADEX Tri frame makes it easy to achieve a personalized fit. It offers nearly endless incremental adjustment options with more than 1,000 fit configurations. And because not everyone travels with a personal mechanic, there’s less hardware to fiddle with. Simple spacers and fewer screws. The cleanly integrated cables don’t need to be rerouted with every cockpit adjustment. That means it’s easier for riders of all heights and body dimensions to dial in a perfect fit that combines power, aero efficiency and comfort for hours on end.


One of the most fundamental performance factors of a triathlon bike is how it fits the athlete. There’s a reason that pro triathletes and their coaches go to great lengths to get this right—a perfect fit allows the rider to produce maximum power in the most aerodynamic position possible while remaining comfortable over long distances.

A primary objective of the CADEX Tri frameset was to make it easier for athletes of all heights and body dimensions to achieve a perfect fit. The CADEX engineering team started by collecting real-world dimensional data from 150 pro and amateur triathletes. This process led to the creation of five frame sizes: XXS, XS, S, M, and L.

From there, the team looked at stack and reach data, then configured ways for any rider, no matter what frame size they choose, to easily adjust these critical fit factors with greater ease. It’s not just about height, leg length and body proportions. Athletes with similar body dimensions can have very different bike setups depending on variables such as flexibility, core strength and preferred race distance.


Beyond frame size, having a perfect fit comes down to adjusting the key contact points including the pedals, saddle, base bar, arm rests and bar extensions. The CADEX Tri bike makes it easy to adjust the cockpit components using simple hardware.

The overall structure of the cockpit is integrated, but the setups are independent. The arm extensions, designed in collaboration with leading components manufacturer Sync Ergonomics, can be moved forward and backward, and the angles can be changed without the hassle of removing any spacers. This system allows you to raise or lower stack height without moving the extension bars. And the quick-release spacer system allows the cable routing to remain in place while making these adjustments.


The effective seat tube angle can be adjusted by changing the saddle setback position. The rear clamp on the seatpost provides an independent fore/aft saddle adjustment range of 70mm. When the saddle is pushed all the way to the rear setting (red line), the effective seat tube angle is 76 degrees. In its most forward position (green line) the seat tube angle is 80 degrees.

For Ironman triathletes like Kristian Blummenfelt, all these adjustment possibilities add up to the winning formula. “We are constantly looking for ways to improve aerodynamics, pedaling efficiency and of course comfort,” Blummenfelt said. “Over the course of 180km, small changes add up. And sometimes what works in the wind-tunnel doesn’t work as well out on the road. Having the ability to make these adjustments quickly and easily is a game-changer when you’re trying to optimize your position and fit.”
