Switch 6 XTR

RRP from: £6,500.00

2020 Switch 6 XTR
Shown in Fizzy Orange

Overview  

The Switch 6 is our first mixed wheel size bike, 29er wheel upfront with 160mm of travel and 27.5 wheel out back with 145mm.

New for 2020 this model comes with all the frame updates that we’ve integrated into the latest line-up; Metric shock, 76° seat angle, 64° head angle, with a generous 485mm reach on a size large and a reduced offset fork, this bike is clearly set-up with the agressive rider in mind.

Aimed at racers and fast trail riders this genre of bike has become the hottest ticket around, whether you call them a 'Mullet' or 'MX', the mixed size wheelset makes a massive amount of sense, but only if you apply the right geometry. The Switch 6 has it's geometry tuned to put all the key frame elements in the right place, therefore the ride by design is what you would expect from an Orange. 

The bike will be available in 4 specs (pro, RS, Factory and XTR) with prices ranging from £4300-£6500 with a choice of four colour options.
