Orange Bikes is releasing a limited edition version of its Five Pro. How limited? Twenty bikes, that’s how limited. This very limited edition is called the “Blackout” because it’s…totally blacked out. No funky colors or mismatched swingarms on this guy. The Five Pro Blackout is adorned with special edition Hope Tech X2’s (there is an option to upgrade to the Hope Tech M4 SE’s). Both versions of the brakes are black anodized with green highlights (photos after the break).
The Orange Bikes Limited Edition Five Pro Blackout “stays true to its roots as a low-slung, fast handling trail bike which can play gently in the Dales or storm a black run.” I don’t know what the Dales are like and I have no freaking clue what a “black run” is, but the Dales do sound kinda wussy and lame and a black run sounds totally bad-ass and awesome. So I guess the bike can handle a range of situations.

The bikes are going for roughly $4,843.08…roughly. Check out Orange Bikes site for more information.
