Not all carbon is created equal

Carbon Fibre frames are now ubiquitous in the world of performance road cycling but the quality can vary enormously. The R9’s frame construction is a precision carbon fibre lay-up using materials from Toray in Japan, one of the world's leading suppliers. The frame’s monocoque structure uses a combination of ultra-high modulus unidirectional composite weave, for its high tensile strength. Bi-directional woven sections are integrated into the complex layup to reinforce areas of high stress. For each different size of the R9 frame, the carbon fibre prepreg sections are CNC machine cut to fit 3D printed mandrels. These custom mandrels are used during the meticulous layup process to construct each of the frame’s sections before the parts go together into the mould. This process creates a strong monocoque structure avoiding superfluous layup material and unnecessary joints maintaining an ultra-light frame.

 

This fastidious construction process means that when the laid up material is put through the compaction phase, everything is smooth and even, inside and out, avoiding over-built areas that can fail in the curing process leading to structural weak spots. Precision CNC cutting of the pre-preg panels also means we can fine tune areas where we need to. Adding extra material to strengthen the flat mount brake mount bosses and keeping the subtly curved sweep of the seat stays lean, light and compliant to provide rider comfort. Designed primarily with modern electronic gear systems in mind, the R9 will happily accommodate ‘old school’ cables.

 

Overall, Orange are thrilled with the way the R9 has come together. The perfect lightweight endurance machine for notching up the miles, with large tyre clearances and powerful disk braking making it perfect for all kinds of roads.

The Pro spec of the R9 features the latest generation of Shimano Ultegra components and has been finished with high quality parts from the likes of Easton with their renowned EA70 SL wheelset and Vittoria's Rubino Pro 28c tyres - everything you need to get some long days in the saddle in.

  • Frame constructed using High Compaction (HC) moulding.

  • Endurance geometry, combining rider comfort, rapid climbing ability and confident descending.

  • Unique 3D printed PU mandrels and carbon layups for each size R9 frame size gives es a consistent ride & feel across the range.

Professional Opinion

When I got it out on the road, the R9 RS surprised me by being just a little bit better than I expected in almost every way. There were no foibles in the way it handled, no worrying wobbles at speed and therefore nothing to stop a large grin from forming across my face every time I swung it into a high-speed turn

Cyclist Magazine Orange R9 Review

With a beautifully constructed all-carbon frame, the R9 oozes long range speed straight out the box - the geometry and ride has been tuned to distance and comfort rather than all out sprint potential, but make no mistake, this is a rapid machine
