Orange Mountain Bikes - 322 Frame Spec Sheet
From the 2014 Archive
Designed to be fast, built to last.
The 322 packs World Cup performance into a proven privateer platform. We’ve got a long history of producing race winning downhill bikes and the 322 is the latest in this lineage.
The 322 uses a unique aluminium monocoque mainframe combined with our geometry know-how to produce a chassis that is honed to give you the confidence to push harder and go faster.
Our single pivot design with its robust sealed cartridge bearings is tuned to offer race track eating performance with maximum speed and engagement but minimal complication and maintenance, leaving you to worry about your run, not your bike.
By dropping the top shock mount through the downtube and using a low pivot position we’ve been able to achieve the shock curve we desired, giving a progressive spring rate that suits the hard riding the 322 is intended for.
The result of all this is a stiff, strong and agile downhill bike capable of repeated fast runs out in the Alps, at a local downhill race or at the cutting edge of World Cup competition where every tenth counts and reliability is key.
Available as a frameset only we leave you to bring your favourite components to the mix and create the perfect bike for your needs, trails and aspirations.
