Orange Mountain Bikes - G3 Spec Sheet
From the 2009 Archive
The G-Series bikes showcase the Orange approach to mountain biking: namely, nothing should get between you and a great ride. Look over the elegant tubing, gusseted main triangle and signature wishbone seatstays. There are no fancy frills, no whizz-bang gadgets or marketing gimmicks. And no spanking pricetags either.
Nothing is there unless it’s going to inspire you to get out of the door for a great ride. And we know what goes into making a great ride. With 20 years of experience at making mountain bike hardtails, we’ve been able to tune the ride to bring you the ideal balance between performance and comfort.
The G-Series bikes aren’t short on useful features though; disc brakes are standard, lock-out suspension is fitted for long climbs and town-sign sprints and there are even Crud Catcher™ bosses to show our British roots.
Whether you’re after an of-the-shelf introduction to big days in the hills, or a bike that’ll see you commuting, towpath pubbing and 24 hour racing, all on the same bike, the G-Series bikes are capable of it all.
