The Alpine is a true all mountain bike
the name gives it away a little bit. It has a long wheel base, slack angles and a low BB giving great stability and handle in steep and fast terrain. It’s a bit of a bruiser and loves rocky technical terrain, just point where you want to go and it’ll get you through it with a massive smile on your face.
Orange has refined the frame for 2017 too; the shock position has been moved to allow more a more progressive feel to the suspension. The Pivot point is a bit wider to increase stiffness but the frame has lost 300 grams in weight. The boost hub size has been included as well as a lower BB and shorter back end. Orange has refined the single pivot design over the years and the latest bikes are the pinnacle of this simple yet functional suspension system.
