Overview  

BACK ON THE ROAD

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.

On the road the R9 RS surprised me by being just a little bit better than I expected in almost every way
