We are a company of cyclists, not just mountain bikers, and we live in the heart of some of the best road biking in the UK. With the popular rise in enduro and endurance based sports, we’ve found we're covering more miles on tarmac than ever before. It is time for us the bring our own road bike back to the Orange line-up.
With a feature list for our dream road bike we set: Super strong yet superlight frame construction, built for distance, designed to climb, descends like a missile. we reckon we’ve ticked off the lot.
Designed to be the pinnacle in endurance tarmac performance the R9 unidirectional Carbon fibre frame features a stiff front end lay-up to ensure sure-footed handling at speed, coupled with compliant rear stays to give all-day comfort for long assaults in the mountains.
Disc braked, compatible with bigger modern road tyre volumes and drivetrain agnostic; run cabled, wired or wireless systems, the R9 does it all. And, while we built it to perform, it's some looker too.

Please note: This is for guidance only. You may be taller or shorter, it doesn't mean our bikes will not fit you. The best way to determine the correct bike size for you is to try one. We've added some more explanation on sizing theory here: What size frame do I need?
On the road the R9 RS surprised me by being just a little bit better than I expected in almost every wayCyclist - August 2018
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.
Sadly it looks like none of our dealers have this model in stock as a demo bike. However, you can find your nearest dealer and they can request one to be sent to them from our demo fleet.
