Up, down or even sideways the Crush will smash it all

The steadfast Orange Crush frame gets a geometry update for 2017. We've taken the frame we love and pushed the features forward to up the fun factor without upsetting the function. We've slackened the head angle to 65° and optimised the the numbers for a 150mm travel fork, meaning you can push the Crush that little bit harder again. 

Everything that made the last version great has come along for the ride. The rear triangle features a bolt-through axle for stability and strength. the Crush's long toptube design that adds an extra few millimetres means, size for size, a 50mm stem puts the rider right where they need to be (with tuning to taste as required, of course) for direct input and weight distribution. While its short chainstays make climbing a tad sweeter, tyre clearance means a chunky 2.4 tyre fits nicely. 

While those are the headline new features, deeper into the detail we added some really nice touches too. The seat clamp slot has been moved so that it faces away from the direct path of wheel spray. The headtube is a more compact 44mm version, and cable routing is kept neat and tidy with minimised cable bosses tucked sweetly under the toptube. While at first glance this is still the Crush we know and love, so many small features have been carefully considered, we might have called it Crush MkII.

But some things don't change and that's the Crush's indefatigable attitude. Built tough to be ridden hard, the Crush will hold it's own just about anywhere, but really excels on the rough stuff. With geometry to suit a 150mm travel fork, this hardtail gives no quarter to seemingly tougher full-suspension bikes, in the right hands the Crush will slay everything that lies before it.
