There's no getting away from it, the Five is one of the most iconic trail bikes we've ever created. For the best part of twenty years it has stood proud amongst its competition. One of the best performers you'll find, period.
For the Mk12 iteration of the frame we've changed just about everything. While we've maintained classic Five 'shape' we all know and love, the chassis updates we've made with the Five take it to a new level.
While reworking the rear suspension kinematics to fit a metric shock standard, we've made the frame's suspension curve more progressive than any previous Five, giving plush travel and a bottomless feel. Small adjustments in pivot width, swing-arm length and the key contact points mean the Five has more travel, is as responsive as ever, is more stable at speed, and importantly retains the 'pop' that's always been a part of its playful nature.
We've always loved the Five, and even if we say so ourselves, we've all fallen in love all over again.

While the classic layout looks the same, Orange have evolved every dynamic detail to put this classic, intuitively interactive, addictively visceral trail machine right back at the top of the pile in terms of tough, practical value and pure enjoyment.MBUK Magazine
I’ll be riding it as much as possible into the ensuing weather with as much excitement as the first time I rode it.MBUK Magazine
it's refreshing to see a brand like Orange, who, for all intents and purposes, have been doing their own thing without deviation and doing it well for longer than most.PinkBike
We knew the Five was a nimble bike anyway, but it now seems more stable with its longer wheelbaseEnduro MTB
The new Five felt buttery smooth and very confidence inspiring.Singletrack
The silent ride on Five is impressive but overall it’s the fun, precise ride of the Orange Five that sparkles.Dirt
We think the best way to find out what an Orange Bike really has to offer is to ride one. So don't just take our word for it, get out there and give one a go.
