Orange Bikes are based in Halifax, West Yorkshire, England. Orange produce a wide range of bikes, ranging from the full-suspension Alpine 6 to the brand new R9 high performance road bike.
BUILT IN BRITAIN
Orange Bikes work with partners all over the world to source many of their frames and components, today we’re talking specifically about the British built models. Orange started production of their full-suspension frames in Halifax in 1998. It seemed the easiest way to get the development they needed for the frame ideas they were pursuing. Well it turned out not to be ‘easy’, but it did turn out to be successful, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Since those intrepid beginnings Orange have built a lot of frames and learned plenty. While experience has taught them a lot, the little tweaks and tricks that they have learned in the building process aren’t necessarily obvious in the final frame, but they are crucial steps to producing some of the strongest and most reliable high-performance mountain bikes in the world.
