The Orange Switch 6 is our first mixed wheel size bike, 29er wheel upfront with 160mm of travel and 27.5 wheel out back with 145mm.
New for 2021, The Orange Switch 6 comes with all the frame updates that we’ve integrated into the latest line-up; Metric shock, 76° seat angle, 64° head angle, with a generous 485mm reach on a size large and a reduced offset fork. Aggressive rider? This bike is set up just for you.
Aimed at the racers and fast trail riders amongst you this genre of bike has become the hottest ride around. Whether you call them a 'Mullet' or 'MX', the mixed size wheelset makes a massive amount of sense, but only if you apply the right geometry. The Switch 6 Pro has its geometry tuned with all the key frame elements in all the right places. This ride, by design, is what you would expect from an Orange.
