Orange Mountain Bikes - Gyro Black Gold Spec Sheet
From the 2012 Archive
Believe the hype… don’t believe the hype… believe the hype… don’t believe the hype…
The Orange Gyro is our mile munching, descent barreling, climb conquering, XC all-rounder, 29er.
Aimed squarely at the rider who wants to cover ground quickly, the 110mm Gyro matches efficiency and balance to create a fast but engaging ride. Every bit an Orange, the trademark monocoque and custom butted 6061-T6 Reynolds tubing form an obvious lightweight silhouette. With its perfectly optimised pivot position, the suspension provides the same balance, sensitivity and reliability that make all our bikes ridiculously fun to ride.
So, big wheels versus small? That’s an impossible question, but if you want something blatantly fast, endurance efficient, but still fun enough to throw around, they don’t come better than this.
Why the Gyro Black Gold?
A limited edition of 50, the ‘Black Gold’ is our first production 29er. It's taken time to perfect, but this is the definitive all-rounder for anyone who wants to go fast. Matching performance, exclusivity and value for money, the big-wheeled package is perfect for an XC epic or destroying the local singletrack.
