Orange Phase Factory Full Suspension Electric Mountain Bike 2020
The Phase is Orange's first mixed size wheelset E.P.O model. The positives which made them consider producing the Switch 6 were also applicable to an E-bike and from then on the concept for the Phase was born. With a 29" front wheel paired with a 27.5 rear wheel and 160 mm of travel at both ends, this could potentially be Orange's most versatile E.P.O model to date.
The Phase will be fitted with a Shimano 8035 battery, will have a keyless battery removal system with the power button fitted to the top tube. The phase has a 64° head angle and a 76° seat angle with a reach measurement on a size large being 488, the bike will also be fitted with a 230x65 metric shock and a reduced offset fork.
THE DRIVE UNIT
Orange have chosen to work with Shimano, using the E8000 pedal assist system. The features it offers work extremely well. Due to the size of the drive unit, no change to bike geometry is necessary. The E-bike you see here is the exact same geometry as the Alpine 6 model.
The power is delivered when the rider starts pedalling. We've found with the Shimano E8000 unit the power is smooth and controllable, even in boost mode. This is crucial on the technical terrain we love to ride.
Unlike other drive units on the market, the Shimano E8000 crankset has the same Q-factor as the human powered cranks you are used to, this means no awkward changes to your pedalling position. This drive unit also has a zero-drag feature, so as you surge past the assisted power, often into descents, all of your pedal input goes into the drive, rather than dragging the motor's "gearbox". This gives a really responsive feel, when you're hitting those high-velocity descents. You soon forget you're riding an E-bike until the assist kicks in again to help power you up the next climb.
