Orange Mountain Bikes - G-Series G3 Spec Sheet

From the 2011 Archive


The G-series bikes are mountain bikes, pure and simple. A lightweight, robust answer for anyone who wants to get out in the hills and ride. Nothing is superfluous to purpose, everything is chosen because it provides that true mountain bike feel, that essence of untouchability. Whether it be the commute or a multi-day off-road tour of Highland distilleries, the aim of the G-series bikes is always to get you wherever you want to be with minimum fuss and maximum fun.

The G-series bikes use a new double butted 6061-T6 aluminium frame to make the new bikes the lightest ever. Over 10% lighter than last year and still using the signature wishbone seatstays that make our frames what they are. UK specific features abound with Crud Catcher bosses, pannier mounts, clean cable routing and added tyre clearance to combat the winter mud.

RockShox suspension keeps the wheels tracking while hydraulic disc brakes prove sure stoppers no matter what the conditions. Clean lines, an accurate ride, and a stacked component package make the new G-series bikes untouchable. Mountain bikes, pure and simple.

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. For a faster lighter take on the G-Series philosophy the new G4 takes some beating.
