Five RS

RRP from: £4,900.00

2019 Five RS Shown in Charcoal Grey


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.

The Door

What they say ...  

MBUK | Five S | November 2016

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 | Five Pro | September 2016

I’ll be riding it as much as possible into the ensuing weather with as much excitement as the first time I rode it.

PinkBike | Five | July 2016

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.

Enduro MTB | Five | July 2016

We knew the Five was a nimble bike anyway, but it now seems more stable with its longer wheelbase

Dirt | Five | July 2016

The silent ride on Five is impressive but overall it’s the fun, precise ride of the Orange Five that sparkles.
