Few bikes have stood the test of time as well as the venerable Five and with the Orange Five Formula Bike 2018, the Halifax MTB specialists bring you something truly wonderful. Orange are now thirty years old and, back in the day, created a bunch of team only bikes to showcase just how special their frames were. These 'Formula' machines were dripping with the best kit money could buy, but you couldn't actually buy them. Fast forward to 2018 and Orange have decided to pay homage to the original Formula mountain bikes with a small range of steeds that customers can actually get their hands on. We therefore present to the the extremely limited edition Orange Five Formula. This is the epitome of the perfect trail bike and dripping with more bling than a Kardashian's commode.

With a British built, single pivot frame, made from hand crafted from 6961-T6 aluminium and featuring overbuilt bearings to take the worst of the British grit and stay smooth, there is no bike better suited to UK riding conditions than the Orange Five Formula. Since it first appeared, over a decade ago, the Five has become a long, slack, modern 140mm rear travel trail bike with internal cable routing, 650b wheels and a tight back end for maximum switchback dominance. The Cane Creek Helm fork up front gets you 150mm of the very latest high tech travel, while the DB Inline shock out back is so sensitive that you'll wonder if the trail has turned to tarmac. The rest of the kit absolutely first rate and, well, quite gold looking; SRAM XX1 Eagle Gold gets the widest range of sharp shifting gears available anywhere. Shimano Saint brakes give you downhill racer levels of power, making the gnarliest descent manageable. Gorgeous looking, Race Face Arc 31 carbon rims are built onto limited addition black/gold Hope Pro 4 hubs. Massively grippy Maxxis High Roller II 2.4" tyres will hook up no matter how loose the conditions or how gloopy the mud. When things turn steep, you can get right over the back thanks to the Fox Factory Transfer 150mm dropper post and a short 50mm Renthal Apex M35 stem lets you perfect the balance. Renthal also provide the excellent 800mm Fat Bar Carbon M35 riser bar giving you tons of control and keeping the front end super stiff. The fun doesn't end there, with a Hope Headset, carbon SRAM cranks and SDG Fly MTN saddle round off the unbelievable spec list. With this sort of kit, there are no excuses out on the trail, which is where the Five Formula loves to be. Make no mistake, the Formula may look like it belongs in an art gallery, but it would be criminal not to ride it. In the incredibly competitive trail bike marketplace, the Orange Five Formula Bike 2018 is the not only pick of the bunch, it's the pick of the whole bloomin' field!
