Orange Mountain Bikes - designed and built in Yorkshire
From Halifax, in England's MTB heartland, Orange have been producing top flight mountain bikes for thirty years. Orange mountain bikes have a true heritage in world MTB history. Machines like the Clockwork and P7 have been on biker's dream lists since the 1980's. With this sort of experience, it is no wonder that Orange is the UK's leading mountain bike manufacturer. Not only are all machines designed in Yorkshire, but every full suspension frame is built in Britain too. The distinctive box-section aluminium swing arms, oversize down tubes and single pivot design have been refined to perfection for almost two decades.
As leaders in full suspension design, it is not surprise that Orange offer everything from full on downhill race bikes to trail friendly 29ers and pretty much everything in between. The main aim of a mountain bike is to have fun. By keeping their single pivot frame design simple, Orange have achieved just that. No messing, no playing around with sag and bushing torque. Just get on and ride. The range goes right the way from 203mm travel DH beasts to 120mm all day trail machines. The race standard Orange 324 is the privateers racer of choice and a common sight at international downhill races. The Alpine 6 and Five series bikes a proper all mountain rides, with enduro potential. The Four takes the mantle of 'just a mountain bike' for almost every sort of riding you can think of.
Orange have really found their way with 29ers too.The relaxed geometry Stage series bikes, take the standard 27.5" designs and add 29 wheels for big rolling action. The Stage 6 is truly enduro ready and really shows how far 29ers have come. The Stage 5 makes it genuinely difficult to choose between 650b and bigger wheels for big mountain fun. Finally the Stage 4 is fast enough for XC racing, but tough enough for any trail centre you choose. All three, like their 27.5" brother are designed and built in Halifax, Yorkshire.
Fans of the latest technology, Orange have been quick to pick up on the E-MTB craze. Electric full suspension bikes really don't get more gnar than the amazing Alpine 6 E. The best performing big mountain electric MTB available, the Alpine 6 E has flown off the shelves. You really don't want to miss out.
Orange have not forgotten their roots either. The very first bike was the Clockwork and it is still going strong today. Recently redseigned as a 'fun' trail centre hardtail, the Clockwork comes in 29er and 27.5 flavour to suit your riding style. More hardcore riders can choose the P7, a proper big mountain hardtail, ready for the Lakes or the Alps. 2018 also saw the release of the incredible titanium T7, a magic mental version of the P7. The is the first titanium Orange for almost 20 years and is set to become a future classic. For a slightly more affordable ride, the Crush is aluminium framed and features sensible spec for those with a smaller budget. Smaller riders and kids also get a look in with the 26" wheeled Zest.
Orange are big on mountain bikes, but they know Orange bike lovers love their machines. As a result, they have built a couple of non-mountain bikes to keep the faithful happy. The all road RX9 is part cyclocross bike, part drop bar commuter, part excitable puppy. The Speedwork is a pure bred fast commute, flat bar bike for urban adventures. If you just can't get enough Orange in your life, these are the choice for you.
Orange and Biketart both love a good custom build. Luckily, almost all of their bikes are available as Orange frame only. Every suspension bike comes as a frame, shock and rear axle package. The P7, Crush and Clockwork models also all come as frame only choices - including the dreamy T7 titanium frame. Choose the Orange frame for you and Biketart will build the Orange bike you have always dreamed of.
