Orange Mountain Bikes - Crush Spec Sheet
From the 2014 Archive
The Five’s tag team partner, the Crush is much more than just another hardcore hardtail.
Never happier than when being used as a sledgehammer to crack the line on big mountain trails the Crush wrestles singletrack and smashes corners like a champ.
We don’t see hardtails as second class bikes we see them as first class fun that’s why we’ve made sure we’ve baked in our acclaimed Orange feel, with geometry that gives confidence and thrills all of the time, just as you’d find on our full suspension models. The Crush punches compromise right in the face.
It’s not all about the downs though, the Crush is just as capable at storming the climbs too thanks to a tough but light aluminium chassis. Dropper post compatibility also means the transitions between ups and the downs can be dealt with at speed too.
This year Crush has bulked up in the wheel department with 27.5inch wheels, helping it make light work of heavy going and we’ve made sure that the components are well up to the beating the frame can take too. The RockShox Sektor forks, RaceFace cranks and SLX rear mech are all up to whatever task you set them to.
Why the Crush?
Mountain taming, trail centre barn-storming and everything in between, the Crush is a hardtail that’s game for whatever you are. With a Shimano drivetrain, a RockShox fork and RaceFace finishing kit the Crush is ready to rock and built to last.
