2016 Orange Crush S
The steadfast Orange Crush gets a major update for 2016. We’ve taken the frame we love and pushed the features forward to up the fun factor without upsetting the function.
Most obviously, the rear triangle now features a bolt-through axle, adding even more stability to what was already a rigid design. A confident handling 66° headangle along with the Crush’s new longer toptube design that adds an extra few millimetres means, size for size, a 50mm stem puts the rider right where they need to be (with tuning to taste as required, of course) for direct input and weight distribution. While shorter chainstays make climbing a tad sweeter, tyre clearance has been increased so that a chunky 2.4 tyre fits nicely.
2016 Orange Clockwork 120S
With its 27.5inch wheels, 120mm of travel and singletrack honed geometry, the Clockwork 120 is the choice for those looking for a potent blend of quick handling and rapid acceleration. For 2016 the front triangle gains a little reach and a shorter stem brings the bar to the sweet spot of perfect trail control. With the riders weight nudged a degree forward the Clockwork 120 brings even more confident handling than ever before into the mix. It’s a bike that alive when fired down twisty trails but is just as happy when you want to take it easy and enjoy the view.
