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 with its 27.5inch wheels and 140mm of travel.
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. Internal dropper routing also means the transitions between ups and the downs can be dealt with at speed too.
Whether you’re going up, down or even sideways the Crush will smash it all.
With a 150mm RockShox Pike, single ring chainset and Shimano Zee drivetrain the Crush RS is built for those who truly appreciate what a long travel hardtail can do.
Single ring a bit too racey? Double and bash more your thing? Take a look at the Crush AM.

The Crush descended with pleasure, placing a smile on my face and a few bugs in my teeth by the time I reached the bottom.IMB Magazine
