Orange Mountain Bikes - 224-Evo World Cup Spec Sheet
From the 2010 Archive
What can we say about the 22X series that hasn’t already been said by a string of world champions, hundreds of privateer racers and a seriously enthusiastic biking press? It’s simple – just like its legendary predecessors, the 224-evolution is designed and built for off-the-peg downhill speed and competition victory at every level.
At the heart of the 224-evolution lies massively stiff but lightweight front and rear ends, joined by our famously reliable and slop-free oversized single-pivot assembly. A wide axle clamp area enhances already phenomenal tracking, while the 224-evolution’s eccentric headtube system and adjustable shock mount enable independent tweaking of the bike’s head angle, wheelbase and bottom bracket height – perfect for individual riding styles or terrain and gradients that change from course to course.
The end result is breathtaking – a super-plush, super-stiff yet highly manoeuvrable DH bike, equally at home on the international and domestic race circuits or pinning it just for fun. But don’t take our word for it – take a look around and believe what you see.
Why the 224-evo World Cup?
This is the top of the Orange Range. The ultimate World Cup race bike. This model is specced with all the high-end components to make this the most competitive machine straight out of the box. If you want the best... this is it.
