The Orange Alpine 6 replaces the much loved Alpine 160 in our range. This new frame is the Alpine 160 re-engineered and we’ve revamped every aspect of the bike’s performance. The Orange Alpine 6 is designed around 170mm front/160mm rear travel. We’ve slackened the head angle half a degree to keep the same alpine handling feel we love, yet make the most of the fork’s extra 10mm.

The compact rear end we debuted on the Four model makes its way to the Orange Alpine 6, shortening the chainstay significantly by 9mm. The repositioned pivot also means that the whole rear triangle is more compact and more active. With the shock now effectively lowered in the chassis, the ramp-up effect is improved, and feedback from test riders has been nothing but positive. With even less flex in the rear, it’s more active over small bumps and inspires confidence over the really rough stuff.

Even with the shortening of the rear triangle, other small changes in the frame construction mean that we retain a long and stable wheelbase along with the long top-tube/short stem model we love. With neat finishing touches like internal cable routing, every element of the frame’s construction has been analysed and optimised, to the point that, size for size, the Orange Alpine 6 frame is significantly lighter than its predecessor.

While we have done everything we can to keep the Orange Alpine 6 the same as the Alpine 160, everything has changed – and we think you’re going to love it.

The Orange Alpine 6 RS is spec’d with a high-end RockShox suspension package that few can rival. 1×11 speed SRAM drive train and an internally routed dropper post delivers a bike that means business. A Hope Tech/Renthal flavour to the finishing kit keeps the British vibe, and you can add to the package with the options on our bike builder platform.
