British manufacturer creates carbon road rig after lengthy tarmac absence

Orange back on the road with Carb-o

Halifax manufacturer Orange Bikes has announced a return to the road cycling market with the introduction of the Carb-o.

Though initially only available in limited numbers( just 120 according to the manufacturer) the new build will be available from mid-December as a complete bike, featuring a full Shimano 105 groupset, Easton wheels and Easton finishing kit. Retail price has been set at £1899.99.

The frame’s front triangle is a monocoque build with the unidirectional carbon layup optimised to handle specific directional loads and manipulate them to balance efficiency and comfort. The distinctive monostay is lugged to make the rear of the bike strong and stable at speed.
