Amazing – it’s probably the simplest way to sum the Orange Five up, it’s the bike that every company wants in their range, but so few can get near to. The bike has been tweaked and refined over the past five or six years, but essentially it has been doing the same job over the years and truly is the only bike the vast majority of riders need to own in the UK. It handles singletrack, descents and climbs with equal aplomb, and can be built into a lightweight 140mm race bike or a burlier, slacker 160mm (front end) hacker. Now available with Maxle rear, and when paired up with the 15mm Fox front thu axle, it completes the perfect package. For its simplicity, reliability and performance the Five remains unrivalled.
