THE ALPINE 160. SCALPEL PRECISION. CHAINSAW ABILITY.
The Alpine 6 Factory spec is simply the best 6 Orange make. Everything is top drawer from the SRAM 1x12 Eagle gearing through to the high-end Fox Factoy Kashima supension and Seatpost, wide Race Face carbon bars and short stem. It really is ready to hit the Alps straight out the box.
Handbuilt in Halifax and designed to be ridden in the world’s biggest mountains, THE Alpine 6 incorporates cutting-edge features and geometry with Orange's reputation for no nonsense reliability.
When Orange put the Alpine 6 under the knife every aspect of the frame was considered, analysed, refined and updated. New features such as 27.5” wheels, internal dropper routing and increased frame length have been mated to our proven low-maintenance, high-performance single pivot suspension and our light but strong monocoque construction leaving you to focus on the trail ahead of you, not the bike beneath you.
The Alpine 6 will slice through the tightest trails and hack through the rockiest boulder fields and is plenty tough enough to take anything you can throw at it. To ensure it’s up to the challenge Orange even had Alpine 6 prototypes raced successfully at World Cup level by the Orange Dirt World Team.
Downhill prowess doesn’t come at the expense of climbing ability though, an Alpine ready bike should be able to cope with any trail, up or down. With its extended wheelbase and superb traction from the positioning of the pivot point the Alpine 6 won’t lose grip, up or downhill.
The Alpine 6, a cut above the rest.
LONGER GEOMETRY EXPLAINED
Orange Bikes has long had a tradition of pioneering progressive geometry. We’re always looking at how to improve your ride, putting you in complete control of your bike. While others have been slowly making their bikes longer, lower and using more relaxed angles we’ve been doing it for years. Now we’re moving things on again.
The Alpine 6 uses a longer front centre (the measurement between the bottom bracket and the front axle) than before to help make the bike more stable in the high-speed environment it’s designed for, yet, combined with a short 35mm stem the Alpine 6’s handling stays sharp and involving. This same longer wheelbase also gives greater stability on the climbs, and with 160mm of travel to play with traction is never a problem.Frame 6061-T6 Monocoque UK Formed Custom Aluminium Tubing Fork Fox 36 Factory Kashima 170mm Boost HSC/LSC Rear Shock Fox Float X2 Factory with Open/Firm Lever 216 x 63 Stem Race Face Turbine R 32mm x M35 Handlebar Race Face Next R Carbon 800mm Stealth Grip Strange 130 Single Lock-On Black Brakes Hope Tech 3 E4 Black 203/180 Shifters Sram X0-1 Eagle 12spd Rear der Sram X0-1 Carbon Eagle 12spd Crankset Truvativ Descendant Carbon Eagle 32t Seatpost Fox Factory Transfer 150mm Drop Saddle SDG Fly MTN Cromo Rail Blk/Orange Hubs Hope Pro 4 Rims Race Face Arc 30 Tires Maxxis Minion DHF 2.5 3c EXO TR / DHR 2.4 EXO TR 2 Finish Jet Black/Fizzy Orange Sizes 5 (XS, S, M, L, XL)
