Orange Mountain Bikes Limited is a bicycle manufacturer, based in Halifax, West Yorkshire in the UK.[1] Orange produces a wide range of mountain bikes, ranging from the full-suspension downhill 224 to the steel hardtail P7. Orange's original hardtail was the Clockwork, named after the film. Orange-sponsored riders have held the downhill world cup championship in 2001 (Greg Minnaar), 2002 and 2004 (Steve Peat), as well as the women's under 21 downhill world championship (Tracey Hannah in 2006). Entry and mid-level Orange bikes are built in Taiwan, while more expensive models are handbuilt in their Halifax factory. The Patriot is one of Orange's best selling models and was the best selling performance mountain bike in Britain for several years. Orange now has dealers in 26 countries worldwide.

The name 'Orange' is derived from all-round range.
