A week is a long time to go without a dash of Orange, so we created the Speedwork; a super-fast everyday rigid MTB-come-sub-commuter that's far beyond a hybrid. The Speedwork defies being labelled; a breathtaking blend of mountain bike comfort and road bike speed is what this bike is all about, with a healthy dose of fun thrown in.

Built around our legendary Clockwork frame, the Speedwork offers all the comfort and control of a mountain bike, but it has rigid forks, 29” wheels and fast-rolling 2.0 tyres for flat-out speed on man-made terrain. Reliable componentry means minimal servicing even when you’re clocking up commuter miles.  

A bike this good isn’t just a weekday workhorse though. For urban exploring, canal-side cruising or just relishing the thrill of riding fast, the Speedwork totally nails it. Of all the Oranges in your quiver, this could be the one you ride most.

Find a Demo bike...  

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.
