Overview  

Built with the Orange Bikes' ride philosophy firmly at the top of the list, the slack (for CX/Road rules of thumb) geometry hits the right balance to ride just about any terrain this side of rocks and boulders. We built it to be a workhorse and also to put a firm tick in the box next to 'Fun'.

The RX9 is our go-anywhere, black top or dirt track mile muncher. Whether you’re commuting to work, exploring the local countryside or taking a cruise along the coast, the RX9 will smooth out the miles. The double-butted alloy frame has been honed to provide a frame that is stiff enough to put your power to the black stuff, while being comfy enough to take the edge of any road chatter.

This is the bike for anything, with mounts for mudguards or racks, 10-speed Shimano components, disc brakes, and an alloy fork ensure sharp handling and confidence in any conditions.

The facts

Why the RX9?

  • Designed in Halifax, UK
  • Lightweight Custom Butted 6061-T6 OS aluminium
  • Truly adaptable, suitable for on-road and off-road use
  • Mudguard compatible
  • Avid BB5R cable-actuated disc brakes
  • Shimano Sora drivetrain
  • Easton EA50 cockpit
  • Shimano/Alex wheelset

With a Shimano Sora drivetrain, Avid BB5 disc brakes and Easton finishing kit, the RX9 might be our entry level drop bar bike but it feels anything but.

Want to up the spec? You’ll be after the RX9 S. Like the idea of skinny tyres but not keen on drop bars? Take a look at the Express-O.
