Orange Mountain Bikes - Five Pro Blackout Spec Sheet

From the 2011 Archive


The Five has become ‘the’ definitive Orange bike, ten years in the making, a masterpiece of evolution and subtle refinement. Countless days and nights have been spent thinking about (and riding) the many tweaks and refinements needed to keep it at the forefront of the trail-riding scene. This, our ‘new’ version, continues to push the boundaries with a few choice additions complementing recent developments in mountain bike components. A state-of-the-art pièce de résistance, or a trail tool of simplicity? Whichever, nothing is more fun to ride…

Five Pro Blackout

The Five Pro Blackout is only available in a Limited Edition of 20 bikes.

The Blackout model features some exclusive Hope Tech X2 Special Edition brakes with the option to go to Hope Tech M4 SE stoppers if that's your preference. Both feature black anodising with a teasing touch of sponsorship green. They're also sporting black floating rotors, black mounts and titanium bolts. A Hope ZS headset, Hope rear QR skewer, Hope QR seat-clamp and lustrous Disco Black paintjob completes a sweet package.

The 2011 Five stays true to its roots as a low-slung, fast handling trail bike which can play gently in the Dales or storm a black run. The mix of Monocoque construction and custom butted 6061-T6 Reynolds tubes keep weight down with a new tapered headtube adding stiffness. A 30.9 mm seat-tube adds compatibility for more ‘dropper’ seat-posts and we’ve added ISCG mounts for securely fitting a chain device. The same single pivot position continues to keep the suspension balanced between sensitivity and efficiency with the bearing system promoting stiffness and reliability. The Five has already become a classic, and it just got better.

Why the Five Pro Blackout?

The Five Pro Blackout, is the pro level model for experienced riders looking for a high performance all-mountain bike, with a good dose of exclusive Hope goodness and it's limited edition.
