Description: Orange Alpine 6 E Launch Edition E-Bike 2018 Full Suspension 27.5 e-MTB


E-bike development is nothing short of revolutionary. It's been coming for a while, everyone's talked about it, but now that revolution is here, and here to stay; e-power is now an option. Orange have been closely watching e-bike components maturing since the very first prototypes. Their first thought was, if they are going to build one then it would it would what they would call a proper bike not a 'concept' piece for the show halls but a working, usuable mountain bike for the terrain we ride.

They looked at the options available, and soon realised the Shimano E-8000 pedal assist drive unit has a lot going for it. So working with Shimano, They have based the designs around that. Orange want a bike with a decent amount of suspension travel, that's versatile and proven, Orange started with the proven Alpine 6 for our geometry. We know the bike rides really well, so we have some data points we trust.

The resulting bikes have been a revelation, culminating in the full working model that we have here. Every test rider has come back raving about their experience on the bike and how it will bring a major new way of thinking to the sport.

Some said it would never happen, others cried 'heresy', but Orange are open minded souls. E-Bikes? Fuss or Fluster? Let's see.

In a few short weeks they were riding the first prototypes, and do you know what? They like this powerful new experience... a lot.
