2016 Orange Bikes available now!


What’s Better out of the Box?
One of the things Orange Bikes are renowned for is their custom options. When you buy an Orange bike there’s plenty of choice with colours and component specification. We still believe in giving our customers these choices, but for 2016 we’ve worked very hard to improve the specs and value of our base models. We’ve got a great line up of bikes at every level that riders will love. Built to hit the trails straight out of the box, with very little need for major component upgrades.
We have dropped our old ‘S’ level spec. For the 2016 model year the new entry level on suspension models is ‘Pro’ spec, followed by the popular competition-oriented ‘RS’  and now topped out with the introduction of the new ‘Factory’ component specification. The Factory models are the bikes we would probably build for ourselves if money were no object. Bar a couple of crossed ‘t’s and dotted ‘i’s with custom colour choices these bikes are the dream ticket in the Orange Bikes universe.
Here’s the details of the models in brief, full details are available on our website.

It is no secret that it is our best selling model, and it wears that crown for a reason. When push comes to shove the Orange Five will step up to the mark in just about any situation.
