LESS IS MORE – THE SHORT TRAVEL TRAIL BIKE WE’VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR. SOMETIMES LESS IS MORE!

Orange started with a clean sheet to design the ultimate short travel, fast, lean mean climber of an all-round trail bike.

With short chain stays and a small 44x184mm shock the pivot point could be pulled rearwards to make the swing arm more compact. With a compact swing arm the split rear design could be pulled in to make a lighter, stiffer swing arm; a wider 12×148 Boost hub spacing helped there too.

With shorter travel there are not the frame stresses of a long fork, so a thinner gauge aluminium sheet could be used as the base material. As for the geometry, a nice long top tube and short stems were a no-brainer. It keeps the wheelbase long for stability and the bike handling direct and fast. Optimised for a 130mm fork, the bike can run a generous sag for that plush feel that we all love. On top of that every department in Orange to produce a frame that was as light as possible but would maintain their legendary reliability.

When the first prototypes were tested everyone was asking why Orange had not produced this bike before! Testers had more in their legs for long climbs, more energy for the descents and smiles as big as they’ve had on any Orange bike. What’s more, even with the light build and a lot of hard riding there have been no frame issues.

And that’s exactly what the Four is about: sitting below the bigger hitting trail burners of the Five and Alpine 160, but vastly more capable that the XC lightweights. It’s Orange to the core: simple, reliable and built to perform at the highest level.
