Strengths:    DESIGN BALANCE STRENGTH RARITY BRITISHNESS

Weaknesses:    CAN BE A LITTLE JITTERY - BUT PROBABLY A TYRES ISSUE.

Bottom Line:   
ORANGE DESIGN THEIR OWN BIKES AND DON'T SEEM TO FOLLOW TRENDS, JUST AS KONA USED TO DO. PEOPLE CONSEQUENTLY SHY AWAY FROM THEM, PREFERRING TRIED AND TESTED CLONES. I'M PROUD TO RIDE MINE AND LOVE EVERY MINUTE OF IT. THERE IS A SMALL NETWORK OF KNOWLEDGEABLE SPECIALISTS IN THE UK WHO STOCK ORANGE. THEY ARE WORTH TRACKING DOWN. WHERE ARE ALL THE OTHER ORANGE FANS THOUGH?

Strengths:    Light, stiff, looks great!

Weaknesses:    Dunno yet

Bottom Line:   
There is virtually nothing written about the EVO8, did nobody buy this? This bike is AWESOME! Fast, and light. Mine is 23lbs! I took a risk buying this... I bet Orange never made a crap bike... it paid off.

I bought this from "The Hub" in Glentress, as an ex Team bike... hence the spec, but it was in great condition, and it rides like a dream, (£900 not $). Only changed the tires, and saddle. So far, it rides perfect (in every XC way). I cannot (yet...) find any fault.
