Words & Pictures: Orange BIkes
May 01 2018
Call us sentimental, but in our 30th year, we can’t help reminiscing.
Way back in the early days of Orange we had an exclusive model we named the FORMULA. They were never intended for sale, they were simply the best of the best and issued only to a select group of Team riders - each one to the riders specification and tuned to suit their 'formula'.
Based on that concept, we’ve decided to reinvent the FORMULA spec for the 21st century. Available on the iconic Five and Alpine 6 models.
Central to the new Formula specs are the iconic tough lightweight frames, handbuilt in Britain, featuring polished graphics on a sleek black anodised finish, then assembled with a dream component package designed to be the ultimate in tune-ability for the demanding rider to match each individual's style and need.
So exactly like the original concept then – but with one tiny difference… This time they will be available to everyone, not just the Team.
