Orange Five Pro Bike

Orange Five Pro

It might be the quickest way from A to B in the city you live in, but a bike like the Orange Five Pro is one that’ll keep going, even when you reach the city limits and head on into the great outdoors. This trail bike is Orange’s defining icon, their best selling model and it’s not hard to see why. They call it their “Goldilocks Bike” – Not too big, not too small – it’s just right. The go anywhere build improves on previous iterations, it offers a stiffer frame, it’s slightly longer wheelbase and offers the 140mm of suspension travel that fans of the Five have loved from day one. Orange are proud that their range is still handbuilt in Britain, they’re masters of their craft and the build quality shines through.

In the last 5 years, Orange claim they’ve experienced a 0.47% failure rate on their bikes, and considering the rough terrain they are accustomed to, this fact is incredible. They’re simply bulletproof, and maintain it well this could be the last trail bike you ever buy.

Owning an Orange trail bike is something to be proud of, it’ll raise a smile or a nod from fellow cyclists in the same way owners of Porsche 911’s might give a cheeky flash of headlights to other owners.

This “Pro” version includes 27.5″ wheels, 140mm front and rear suspension courtesy of Fox, Shimano XT drivetrain and brakes, RaceFace Evolve double/bash chainset, Hope Pro II Evo/ Mavic 319 wheelset and a RaceFace Ride cockpit.
