Orange Mountain Bikes - Crush Spec Sheet
From the 2010 Archive
Forget links, pivots and platform damping, the Crush takes things back to basics, raises the stakes and really puts the buzz back into biking. It’s a bike that reflects our long-standing belief in pushing the limits for the sake of big thrills.
Designed around a grin-inducing 140mm fork, the Crush’s burly 6061-T6 aluminium frameset is reinforced in all the right places and built to take the knocks. The hydro-formed downtube with flared, over-sized top section complements a ring-reinforced head-tube, delivering massive overall rigidity for superb tracking through the rough stuff. Meanwhile, rounded seat stays take the worst of the sting from the back end, giving a smidgen more comfort without compromising the bike’s killer acceleration. Finish off with a relaxed head angle, clearance for big tyres and a bottom bracket height that clears the deck but still keeps things stable, and you’ve got a perfectly balanced hardtail that just blew your excuse to ride it like one.
Tough, fast and built to go the distance, this is the hard man of hardtails. Make no mistake, the Crush goes anywhere you dare.
If you’re after a seriously tough, sure-footed trail bike that’ll scrabble up hills and scream back down them then the Crush is a steal. Its stability means welcome safety as speed and gradients get silly.
