Orange Switch 7 Pro Full Suspension Mountain Bike 2023

Enter the Orange Switch 7, taking its name from Orange's fun, popular MX wheeled Switch 6 but going bigger, faster, and harder, this bike is taking things a little more seriously.

The aim with the Switch 7 was to produce a race bike, to take everything they already knew with the addition of feedback from supported EWS racers and the newly established factory racing program and combine that to make a bike that's even more capable of competing at the sharp end of races on the toughest tracks in the world.

The Switch 7 is a true representation of Orange Bikes’ capabilities in frame development and production. The frame and each individual component have seen extensive FEA analysis and 3D modelling to identify any potential issues and to optimise each structure to perform at its best.

Of course, Orange back all of this up with real-world prototype testing and have clocked up the miles amongst the test team, Factory Racing team and a few riders who are known for being hard on bikes, validating the computer analysis and giving them the confidence in the design.

FEA has been used for for both deflection and fatigue to fine tune the frame's elements for strength and optimal compliance.

Although the frame silhouette is still very intentionally that of an Orange, a great deal has changed, but also much remains the same. This is a completely UK made frame, manufactured by the hands of craftsmen with decades of experience, from flat sheets of aerospace grade aluminium to individually custom-fabricated tubes, seam-welded for each specific purpose, working in harmony with CNCed components from aluminium billet meticulously modelled and analysed.

This all produces an aluminium frame with a weight less than that of many ‘carbon’ frames in its category. It also means Orange have a product that's strong, durable and fully recyclable at the end-of-life cycle.
