After a long gestation period of developments and refinement, the test riders' feedback has confirmed Orange have last got it right.
A renovation of the big mountain 160mm travel chassis, the frame set has been redesigned to shed two thirds of a pound, and adjusted to make the rear suspension more active with newer platform shocks.
Orange also made other modifications, such as 142 x 12 rear axle drop outs and reinstating the shock-slider.
This bike represents all that's resilient, tough and no-nonsense about a good ride. In essence, it's the total accumulation of everything that's great and good about the Alpine 160 in its purest and most exciting form – a bike built for anything.
Why the Alpine 160 RS?
A bike that truly separates the men from the boys, the Alpine 160 RS has a single chain ring 1x10 set-up with a dropper post fitted as standard. Big, fast, robust, and a perfect Enduro tool.
