Orange 5 SE
This is the only bike you will ever need for trail riding. Incredibly solid, simple, totally reliable and so bloody easy to get on with, this is easily one of the best mountainbikes ever made. Run it with 140’s or 160’s it climbs, descends and does everything you ask of it. Without doubt the perfect bike for UK forest trails, as they become increasingly ripped apart. And it looks set to
be the benchmark UK trail bike for many years to come.
Available in four other builds the SE version featured here comes with one of the best trail forks of ‘09 – the new 15mm thru–axle from Fox.
