Guy Martin’s New Orange Five EVO

There are few household names that better line up what we’re all about here at Orange than Guy Martin.

Down to earth, as British as pie-and-chips and absolutely obsessed with speed, quality engineering and craftsmanship Guy just ‘gets’ Orange. And, of course, like us, Guy doesn’t take himself too seriously and does everything with a smile on his face and a dose of northern ingenuity and eccentricity!

Guy’s one-off colour scheme is something we’re particularly proud of. It took 8 hours of elbow grease from Orange Warehouse Manager Vaughan, who hand buffed Guy’s frame to create this custom look. It was hand polished with wire brushes and scouring pads, then brushed off with compressed air and finished with custom graphics. We finished the bike up with some Hope Racing Green components, which were handpicked by the man himself.

So what’s next for Guy and his new Five Evo? Good question – he’s remaining pretty tight-lipped about his plans but promises that he’s on the lookout for his next big event. He’s particularly keen on big-distance, epic events so watch this space!
