The hardworking Five has been a stalwart of the Orange range for a long time. It’s tough, reliable and capable. The harder you push it the happier it seems to be. So they better make sure they don’t mess with it right?

It was last updated a year and a half ago, it was time to see what they could do for the new Five. They liked the way the Four rode, and how it’s suspension action had a really active feel to it, they set about seeing how they could bring this same element to the Five’s set-up. To add the new compact rear suspension layout to the Five would be ideal, but where would they fit the shock? In theory lower in the frame, in practice, not so easy. But if it was easy, it wouldn’t be worth doing, and the guys in the frame department came up with the goods. Like the solving of a complex engineering puzzle they worked out a way to lower the shock by adding a new pressing in the fabrication of the downtube, leading the way to the compact rear on the Five and improving the shock’s ramp-up at the same time.
