Fort William 2015: New Orange 324 Launched

by 1

Orange has chosen the classic 2015 Fort William World Cup to launch its new downhill bike, the 324. Never one for model years as such, the company has used previous versions of the event to launch other bikes.

The bike uses an Orange Bikes’ trademark single pivot: the semi-pierced downtube shock-mount first seen on the 322 and a new, lighter, stiffer swingarm that apes that on the Alpine 160. Details are very vague at the moment, but we’re going to be seeing the bike in person tomorrow. In the mean time, we hope you’ll be OK with a studio shot of the new bike and a list of the spec.
