Orange 329 press release

Introducing the Orange 329

The quest to go faster never stops. When it comes to riding against the clock or against your mates any advantage needs to be explored.

Some riders have found that opting for 29 inch wheels give them the edge they need to get ahead, so after much development we’re proud to announce the introduction of the 329, our first 29inch wheeled downhill bike.

The 329 takes the know-how from our World Cup honed 327 chassis to build a 29er downhill bike set on podiums and personal bests. Designed to handle as closely to the 327 as possible the 329 uses its 29 inch wheels to monster over the rough stuff and charge the straights but still offer options in the turns. We built the 329 to be a versatile speed machine, not a one trick juggernaut.

Our single pivot design means whether you’re a racer or bike park rat you’ll have more time riding and less time wrenching. The through-the-downtube shock mount cradles a 250mm metric shock delivering 190mm of travel and giving us the scope to position the pivot point exactly where it needs to be to deliver the small bump performance and big-hit plushness that demanding racers require. The frame’s shock curve is a smooth ramp, allowing easy rear shock set-up. With the 329 suspension tuning is easily done with the suspension unit, making performance tweaks simple and straightforward on the fly.

Whatever your wheel size preference, between the 327 and 329 we’ve got you covered. After all, options are good, advantages are better.
