Overview  

The Segment. Divides opinions. Conquers trails.

Designed to be the fastest all-rounder we could make, the Segment takes preconceptions about what is possible on a short travel bike and pulls them apart.

A 120/110mm travel 29er that can ride way beyond its travel figure, the Segment balances its inherent big-wheel unflappability with a taut and playful ride that encourages you to let it go faster, both up and down. With its confidence inspiring low-slung stance and the kind of angles more often found on longer travel bikes the Segment is the short travel bike that can, and does. From laps of black runs to off-cambre, off-piste sections you’ll be dropping seconds and your riding mates.

As you’d expect from Orange it’s built to go the distance with a proven, high-performance, low-maintenance single pivot suspension system and the latest, most widely adopted features such as internal dropper routing, a 142mm rear axle, ISCG tabs and a 1.5inch headtube.

The Orange Segment, greater than the sum of its parts doesn’t even come close.
