It is no secret that the Orange Five is Orange's best selling model, and it wears that crown for a reason. When push comes to shove the Orange Five will step up to the mark in just about any situation. To tip our hats to an old fairytale, it's the Goldilocks bike in our line-up. Not too big, not too small, for people in the know (and even those who are not) it is 'just right'.

With this new version, by comparison to the previous incarnations, it's a little longer (10 mm to be precise), a little stiffer (15% to be exact), a little slacker (0.5° to be accurate) but overall it is still undeniably a Five, it always will be. Still 140 mm of travel, still handbuilt in Britain, still single-pivot reliable, still loads of fun out on the trail.

The new refinements bring a longer wheelbase, improving climbing capability, reducing the front's urge to lift on steep ascents, and makes an already benchmark descender even more sure-footed and confident. A new lighter shock mount has been designed to improve stress dispersal through the downtube. Not that we had a problem there really, it's always good when we can make things a little better.

Built to go anywhere and back. Since Orange launched the first Five over ten years ago they have had a failure rate of just 0.47%. That's not a made up statistic, we checked our records to be sure. It means the five year warranty we provide is rarely called upon.
