For trail riders who are looking for something different, Orange Bikes has released a new mountain bike frame called Patriot. While keeping the weight as light as possible, the Patriot features maximum stiffness and strength. This is achieved by using monocoque top and down tubes.

When it comes to fitting future proofing design and angle-adjust headsets, the ideal solution is the tapered fork that is housed by the 1.5in head tube. Rigidity is guaranteed by the maintenance-free pivot assembly and the standard Maxle featured by the low profile swingarm.

While downhill bikes are too big and six inches are too small, the 2012 Orange Patriot Mountain Bike Frame offers the middle. By lowering the single pivot setup, suspension feel is made more active, pedaling becomes more efficient, and quick turns can be tackled more easily.
