Orange Pro Line Bikes Focus on Suspension Performance and Price

by 8

Orange has announced a new Pro Line build for the Orange Five and Alpine 6 that focuses on suspension performance and affordability.

You know how it can be. You want a certain frame, with a certain level of suspension, but to get it you have to go for a top of the range bike with flashy components you either don’t want or you’re going to end up replacing anyway.

Then if you want to keep your price down, you’re lumbered with lower-spec suspension and perhaps a lower-spec frame.

To get around that there’s always the custom build option, but chances are it’s going cost more buying a bike that way. If only brands would offer great frames, with great suspension but with affordable components to keep the cost down….

And this is where the Orange Pro Line builds come to play. Orange has taken the popular Orange Five and Orange Alpine6 models and built Pro Line level bikes that have top of the range suspension but without the top end pricing.

UK made, top suspension and sub £4k.

If you were to pick up an Orange Five Pro Line or Alpine 6 Pro Line today with no options and a standard colour the bike would cost £3,999. Not bad for a handmade UK frame dripping with top-end Fox or Rockshox suspension.

To ensure prices are kept low, Orange has chosen budget drivetrains, so while the Pro Line Orange 5 boasts a Fox Factory 36 fork it also runs a budget SRAM SX 12 speed drivetrain. It’s a clever mix of components that are going to enable more riders to get on a better performing bike at a lower price.
