Orange Stage 5 LE (Launch Edition)
Orange bikes have made it their mission to redefine peoples thoughts on 29” wheels and the new Stage bikes are designed to do exactly that. Wanting to make a statement about their new handbuilt creation, 20 bikes named the “Launch Edition” have been released and we have been lucky enough to get our hands on two of the brand new Stage 5’s.
Being the more trail friendly of the two new 29ers, the Stage 5 looks like a winner on paper with long, slack geometry and boost spacing which is bang up to date. A revised pivot placement, 135mm rear travel and 140mm front fork help the Stage 5 strike that sweet spot between all-day pedalling efficiency, and capability on the rough stuff.
To make the most of this superb new chassis, the LE bikes have been draped in the very best components available from the likes of Fox, Hope and Renthal, making it one of the most exciting prospects available right now.
Whether you are into hooning on your local downhills, taking on big missions out in the Lake District, or beating the clock at your local Enduro events the Stage 5 LE is up to the job and will help you through just about anything. With only 20 Launch Edition bikes available, and no standard Stage 5 available yet, you’ll need to move quick to get your hands on this superb big wheeled weapon.
