Orange Mountain Bikes

Orange Mountain Bikes - G3 Spec Sheet

From the 2009 Archive


The G-Series bikes showcase the Orange approach to mountain biking: namely, nothing should get between you and a great ride. Look over the elegant tubing, gusseted main triangle and signature wishbone seatstays. There are no fancy frills, no whizz-bang gadgets or marketing gimmicks. And no spanking pricetags either.

Nothing is there unless it’s going to inspire you to get out of the door for a great ride. And we know what goes into making a great ride. With 20 years of experience at making mountain bike hardtails, we’ve been able to tune the ride to bring you the ideal balance between performance and comfort.

The G-Series bikes aren’t short on useful features though; disc brakes are standard, lock-out suspension is fitted for long climbs and town-sign sprints and there are even Crud Catcher™ bosses to show our British roots.

Whether you’re after an of-the-shelf introduction to big days in the hills, or a bike that’ll see you commuting, towpath pubbing and 24 hour racing, all on the same bike, the G-Series bikes are capable of it all.

Why the G3?

Moving up from the G2, the G3 is specced with more robust components to better withstand the rigours of rougher conditions.

A simpler solution? Check out the G2. Also check out the EVO8 for a fast super-light trail burner or go steel with a P7 Pro.
