From the 2016 Archive

You can find the current Diva here.

RRP from: GBP £1,000.00


The Diva high-performance hardtail geometry for women.

With 27.5inch wheels and 6061-T6 aluminium tubing the Diva sports a chassis that’s efficient on the pedals, inspiring in the singletrack and forgiving enough to reduce fatigue on day-long rides. 

For 2016 the Orange Diva hardtail frame gets a makeover. We’ve looked at every tube and adjusted them where we can to improve ride quality. The Diva joins the rest of the range with a longer top-tube and short stem, making steering more direct and improving the rider’s weight distribution to give more front wheel traction. We have replaced the monostay rear end with compliant custom butted seatstays to add a little more comfort. The Diva is all about sure-footed, confident handling - up or down.

Just as with any of our bikes you’ll find the Diva is geared towards fun regardless of what the trail is doing and with components designed to relieve pressure points the fun only stops when you do.

Featuring identical functionality as traditional Reverb, the significant difference of Reverb Stealth is the hydraulic hose exits the bottom of the post, routing internally through the frame, creating a non-moving, clean hose-routing solution.

Bolt type seat clamp replaces QR seat clamp with this option.

Connectamajig allows for QR removal of the seatube from the hose without the need to bleeding.
