2016 Orange Alpine 160 Custom Build - Charcoal Grey


Hand built in Halifax and designed to be ridden in the world’s biggest mountains, the all-new Orange Alpine 160 incorporates cutting-edge features and geometry with their reputation for no nonsense reliability.


When Orange put the Alpine 160 under the knife every aspect of the frame was considered, analysed, refined and updated. New features such as 27.5” wheels, internal dropper routing and increased frame length have been mated to their proven low-maintenance, high-performance single pivot suspension and our light but strong monocoque construction leaving you to focus on the trail ahead of you, not the bike beneath you.


The Alpine 160 will slice through the tightest trails and hack through the rockiest boulder fields and is plenty tough enough to take anything you can throw at it. To ensure it’s up to the challenge we’ve even had Alpine 160 prototypes raced successfully at World Cup level by the Orange Dirt World Team.


Downhill prowess doesn’t come at the expense of climbing ability, an Alpine ready bike should be able to cope with any trail, up or down. With its extended wheelbase and superb traction from the positioning of the pivot point the Alpine 160 won’t lose grip, up or downhill.


The Alpine 160, a cut above the rest.


Longer Geometry Explained

Orange Bikes has long had a tradition of pioneering progressive geometry. They're always looking at how to improve your ride, putting you in complete control of your bike. While others have been slowly making their bikes longer, lower and using more relaxed angles Orange have been doing it for years. Now they’re moving things on again.


The new Alpine 160 uses a longer front centre (the measurement between the bottom bracket and the front axle) than before to help make the bike more stable in the high-speed environment it’s designed for, yet, combined with a short 35mm stem the Alpine 160’s handling stays sharp and involving. This same longer wheelbase also gives greater stability on the climbs, and with 160mm of travel to play with traction is never a problem.

Ready to ride
Every bike from Start Fitness is fully checked & assembled before despatch and will arrive, almost, ready to ride. Each bike is assembled by one of our CyTech accredited mechanics and then packed into one of our custom boxes. Minimal assembly, with basic tools, is required before you can ride. Assembly tools are not usually included. More details can be found here.
Please note: Some bikes are not supplied with pedals. Manufacturers don’t know if you want flat or clipless pedals, rather than send the bike with the wrong type, they leave the choice for you to make.
This process has a lead time of between 3-5 working days
Unfortunately during peak times this may be slightly delayed. We will however, aim to despatch your bike as quickly as possible.
Making sure you are home
Once fully checked and boxed, we will contact you to book a delivery date. Our bikes are despatched on a next working day service (excludes weekends & bank holidays) for UK mainland orders, or a two day service to Northern Ireland and outlying Scottish areas. European bike deliveries usually take approximately one week.
Taking Delivery
Any mechanical or cosmetic issues need to be reported to us within one week of the delivery date. If you do not plan on using the bike straight away, we advise that you remove it from the box and check it over ASAP as we cannot be responsible for any reported issues (other than standard warranty issues) later than one week from the date that the bicycle was delivered.
First Check-Over
After a few weeks of riding (depending on riding style and conditions), a new bike will need a check-over to make final adjustments and to re-check all nuts and bolts. This is necessary as the bike goes through a ‘bedding in’ phase after which, final adjustment may be necessary. We recommend that this is carried out by a CyTech qualified mechanic. It is important to have these checks carried out to prevent any avoidable problems which may not be covered by warranty and to ensure the smooth running of the bicycle.
We can carry out the first check-over free of charge, at our Newcastle store (NE16JE). If you’ve had the bike delivered, it will be your responsibility to get the bicycle to and from our store for this work to be carried out. This complimentary check-over does not include any labour to replace worn parts or to fit new accessories.
All bikes must be booked in for the first service & must be clean or a £15 cleaning charge will be payable. You can book this by calling 0191 261 4191. Proof of purchase will need to be presented when the bicycle is dropped off for the first check-over.
Bike Servicing
Bicycles need to be serviced regularly, as a guideline we would advise on at least one full service per year and/or a standard service twice a year. If the bike is used regularly in adverse conditions, more regular servicing may be required.
