Sometimes, when you peel back the layers of smaller wheeled MTBs, you get a pretty bitter after taste, to it is sweet to see a bike as well put together as the Orange Zest 2018. Tiny frames on giant wheels simply don't work and Orange have recognised this by building a perfectly proportioned trail hard tail, with 26" wheels and a sensibly small frame. Perfectly suited to shorter riders and taller children, this is no jumped up kids' bike. The Zest's 6061-T6 custom butted aluminium frame is right out of the top drawer and even features routing for an internally cabled dropper post - you don't get that on a motor spares shop special. Up front, a 100mm travel RockShox 30 Gold RL Solo Air fork is light, stiff and responsive enough to take on all manner of off road trails. A SRAM NX gearing gives the Orange Zest 11 sweet shifting gears, with a wide enough range for any climb or descent and clever 'thick-thin' technology keeping the chain firmly in place. Tough Alex MD19 rims are laced to classic Shimano hubs for endless smooth, reliable rolling and Continental Mountain King tyres offer the perfect balance of speed and grip for all your MTB adventures. SRAM's new Level TL brakes mean that the Zest can screech to a halt on a sixpence and there is tons of modulation for controlling speed on faster descents. Further control is offered by 750mm wide bars and a sensibly short Strange stem, meaning that you can decide exactly which way the front of the Zest is pointing at all times. For smaller mountain bikers who are ready to peel back the skill levels and add some extra juice to their riding, the Orange Zest 2018 has everything you are looking for.
