Built to the same exacting specifications as our iconic aluminium Clockwork frames, this is the all new, 26 inch wheeled, Zest. Designed for people who need a smaller fit, but still want the performance of a ‘proper’ mountain bike, the Zest offers the same ride characteristics we all love about Orange, sharp performance and confident handling.
The geometry on the Zest is bang up-to-date too, longer top-tube and shorter stem, with a long wheel base for stability.
The Zest frame features internal routing for a dropper seatpost, and neat external cable routing like the Clockwork Evo. Ripe for upgrades, but ready to rock straight from the box.
The Zest might be your first foray into the world of mountain biking, or you might be an experienced old hand looking for the right fit. Wherever you are within that range, the Zest is a sound choice of Orange.
A SRAM 11 speed drivetrain with 100mm RockShox 30 Gold Solo Air offer comfort and durability for riders needing a smaller frame format.

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?
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.
