The Alpine 160. Scalpel precision. Chainsaw ability.

Handbuilt in Halifax and designed to be ridden in the world’s biggest mountains, the all-new Alpine 160 incorporates cutting-edge features and geometry with our reputation for no nonsense reliability.

When we put the Alpine 160 under the knife every aspect of the frame was considered, analysed, refined and updated. New features such as 27.5” wheels, internal dropper routing and increased frame length have been mated to our proven low-maintenance, high-performance single pivot suspension and our light but strong monocoque construction leaving you to focus on the trail ahead of you, not the bike beneath you.

The Alpine 160 will slice through the tightest trails and hack through the rockiest boulder fields and is plenty tough enough to take anything you can throw at it. To ensure it’s up to the challenge we’ve even had Alpine 160 prototypes raced successfully at World Cup level by the Orange Dirt World Team.

Downhill prowess doesn’t come at the expense of climbing ability though, an Alpine ready bike should be able to cope with any trail, up or down. With its extended wheelbase and superb traction from the positioning of the pivot point the Alpine 160 won’t lose grip, up or downhill.

The Alpine 160, a cut above the rest.

Longer geometry explained

Orange Bikes has long had a tradition of pioneering progressive geometry. We’re always looking at how to improve your ride, putting you in complete control of your bike. While others have been slowly making their bikes longer, lower and using more relaxed angles we’ve been doing it for years. Now we’re moving things on again.

The new Alpine 160 uses a longer front centre (the measurement between the bottom bracket and the front axle) than before to help make the bike more stable in the high-speed environment it’s designed for, yet, combined with a short 35mm stem the Alpine 160’s handling stays sharp and involving. This same longer wheelbase also gives greater stability on the climbs, and with 160mm of travel to play with traction is never a problem.

Hope Pro II Evo in orange + Easton Arc 27

Hope Pro II EVO hubs are machined from a solid billet of 2014 T6 aluminium in Barnoldswick, England. The new design features a thicker axle configuration to increase stiffness and durability with any dropout system. Spinning on cartridge bearings and protected by a frictionless labyrinth seal, the hub is driven by a twenty-four tooth steel ratchet with four pawls engaging the system. Quality doesn't get much better, the Pro II EVO hub will last longer and roll further than any other. Now featuring the latest 40T freehub body.

The Easton ARC is a rim only option engineered to suit a variety of tyre volumes and riding styles. The ARC 27 has a 27mm internal width. Ready to attack any trail, this tubeless-ready design features a bead barb to lock tubeless tyres in place.

This wheelset will come set up tubeless.

What the Alpine delivers however is a superbly confident ride into choppy terrain, one that allows for grip to be sniffed out and for downslopes to be hit with precision.
