Orange Mountain Bikes - G3 Spec Sheet

From the 2012 Archive


Mountain biking is all about the spirit of adventure, pushing further as your riding and ability progress. The G-series range encourages this momentum, strong, light, comfortable and above all, reliable. Technology has surged since we started over 20 years ago, but it’s still about minimum fuss and maximum fun.

The G-series bikes use our custom butted 6061-T6 aluminium frame to create a lively ride which is both agile and compliant. Geometry remains balanced and surefooted with a position to promote efficiency and confidence wherever you’re riding. Wishbone seatstays are a nod to tradition, combining with reinforced chainstays for direct power transfer straight from the pedals. A post mount rear brake as the newest addition, the G-series frame keeps everything ahead of the curve.

Clean lines and classic Orange graphics finish a stunning centrepiece, with a carefully chosen component package to seal the G-series deal. Parts are chosen for reliability and performance; specced so you can concentrate on pushing your riding, not the bike. The G-series range has never done fads and gimmicks, it’s all about the trails, go explore…

Why the G3?

The G3 is the G2’s higher specced hardtail sibling. Featuring upgraded RockShox forks, Avid hydraulic brakes, RaceFace finishing kit and a full groupset upgrade, it provides an option for those needing a little bit more.

Don’t need the trick bits? Take a look at the G2. Want something with more travel? Make the leap to the Orange Crush or take a look at the steel framed Pure7.
