The Orange Mountain Bikes 2013 Range
These bikes are designed for one thing: flat-out downhill speed. They are built to take the abuse and provide run after run of big-hit excitement. Downhill bikes are purely performance orientated within a very specific discipline.
Freeride bikes are designed for tough, technical terrain. Freeriding can cover anything from ploughing through an alpine rock field to negotiating your way through tricky ‘north-shore’ style trails in the local woods. A slightly higher bottom bracket and steeper head-angle generally make them more nimble at slower speeds than a dedicated downhill bike.
All-mountain bikes do just that, they take you up and down any part of the mountain. They have the poise of a freeride bike, but air shocks and a lighter component package make them less of a struggle to get back up again. They’re the bike for those who want to pedal, but still need a bike to take the hits.
Suspension Trail Bikes
This is the kind of riding most of us do in the UK. It includes everything from trail centre bashing to a full day in the wilds. They’re for anyone who rides far and needs a good level of all-round performance. But don’t be fooled, just because it’s an XC bike doesn’t mean it isn’t going to scream for more on the descents.

Orange Diva - Bikes for Women
Girls aren’t the same as guys, it’s a fact, and our Diva bikes celebrate that difference. Far from chucking on a set of pink graphics, throwing in a slogan and calling them ‘women specific’, these bikes are formulated from the ground up to incorporate the best features in packages tailored to women.
The Diva riding position is designed and tested to promote efficiency and comfort with the torso situated in strict relation to the bottom-bracket and handlebar, putting your weight in a central position, relieving pressure on your hands and hips, making numbness and discomfort a thing of the past. The shorter crank arms make power transfer more effective with better leverage and increased stability while descending. The forward position moves the rider’s centre of gravity into the middle of the bike which distributes weight evenly between the hands and hips to promote comfort and a more confident ‘attack’ position. A steep seat-angle contributes towards power transfer, aids manoeuvrability and ensures control on the climbs. The Diva range doesn’t adapt male geometry to suit women, it rewrites it.
