Following the success of their limited edition run of ‘Blackout’ Orange Fives, the boys from Halifax have decided to give the ST4 trail bike a similar makeover with the release of the Orange ST4 Pro Blackout.
Only ten of them are going to be made and once again they will feature the sparkly disco black paintjob with exclusive green Hope Tech X2 Special Edition brakes, black floating rotors, black mounts and titanium bolts throughout. A Hope headset, rear QR skewer and seat-clamp continue the British theme and the bar caps and swing link are in a matching powdercoat green.
The changes to the bike are more than superficial – the Blackout will be the only ST4 available with 140mm of travel up front instead of the 120 of the standard bike. Orange reckon that’ll transform the bike into a harder hitting machine, the 110-140mm travel adjustable Fox 32 TALAS fork with the latest FIT damper and rebound, lockout and compression adjustment coming straight from the Five Pro.
The ST4 Pro Blackout has an RRP of £3,100 and you can head to the Orange Bikes website here to find out more.
