Orange Mountain Bikes - Patriot Frame Spec Sheet

From the 2012 Archive


The Patriot makes its returns as a big mountain ripper, a bike that can do it all and be built for exactly your style of riding. A DH bike a bit on the ‘big’ side, an all-mountain bike not enough? The answer is here…

The new frame uses a monocoque top and down tube to maximise strength and stiffness but keep weight low. The swingarm features the Maxle as standard with the maintenance-free pivot assembly keeping things tight. The 1.5 headtube allows any fork and headset configuration leaving the build completely in your hands.

The single pivot setup is lowered for a more active suspension feel, plush but controlled, efficient on the pedals and light enough to flick quick turns. Make your mark and choose your own build; mini-DH, lightweight freeride, heavy duty all-mountain, we’ll let you write your own description, just ride it like you mean it.

The Patriot is where it all began, from the Animal Orange days through to Global Racing, the bike that influenced a whole generation of riders. See it as a UK downhill bike, a lightweight freeride bike or something to pedal around the Alps. The Patriot is bred tough, the only limits are your nerves…

Why the Patriot?

The Patriot fits squarely between the Alpine 160 and 224-Evolution, a hard riding big-mountain machine for slamming into turns and boosting off lips. Taking the rough with the smooth, it’s capable of technical climbing, but the Patriot is all about the gravity fuelled good times.

If you need something DH specific, take a look at the 224-Evolution. Want something lighter and easier on the pedals, the Alpine 160 can still take the hits.
