ORANGE MOUNTAIN BIKES
Halifax, UK based Orange bikes have been making bikes since 1988.
Orange produces a wide range of mountain bikes, ranging from the full suspension 329 to the steel hardtail P7. Orange’s original hardtail was the Clockwork, named after the 1971 film ‘A Clockwork Orange’. Orange is still producing the Clockwork, it comes in EVO 29, EVO 27 and 27, with the Clockwork EVO 29 available in the color orange.
Orange DH bikes were made popular when in 2001 Greg Minnaar won the DH overall while riding the Orange 222. Steve Peat would also go on to win the DH overall title while riding Orange bikes in 2002 and 2004.
The Orange iconic full suspension design has remained unchanged for years. Bikes like the Alpine, Stage and 329 use monocoque aluminium and custom formed tubing for the frames. The suspension is a single pivot design with elevated chain stays, which look very similar to the bikes that Minnaar and Peaty rode to victory in the early 2000’s. Of course, the geometry has been updated several times over the past fifteen years. The one thing that has not changed is that several Orange’s models are still being built by hand in the UK.
Orange remains to be an iconic brand with an iconic look.
