INTRODUCING THE 2015

WHERE THE ROAD ENDS, ADVENTURE BEGINS...

ASPHALT, GRAVEL, HARDPACK

AN ADVENTURE ROAD BIKE WITH LIMITLESS POTENTIAL

Canada is a country characterized by awe-inspiring wilderness, wide-open spaces and unparalleled natural beauty. Roads and pathways crisscross the land; some are paved, most are not. To the adventurous among us, these roadways are an invitation to explore. They offer us the opportunity to leave behind the familiar, to cross over the boundary into the unknown where we will surely discover new perspectives and new experiences.

Norco Bicycles’ all-new Search platform is the ideal vessel for the modern-day explorer. It is an all road bike inspired by the boundless Canadian landscape – or, more precisely, by our insatiable desire to explore it. Extremely capable and infinitely versatile, The Search features a lightweight carbon frame, endurance geometry, vibration dampening ARC technology, Power Chassis Design, disc brakes and twin thru axles.

For riders who live to seek out new routes and discover new vistas, your Search starts here. Where it ends is up to you.

KEY TECHNOLOGIES

Size-Scaled Tubing

By increasing tube profile dimensions in proportion with frame size, Norco engineers are able to calibrate frame stiffness to the weight of the prospective rider. This ensures that a heavier rider on a larger frame will experience the same ride characteristics as a lighter rider on a smaller frame. Though the process is labour-intensive, the result is worth the effort: optimal ride characteristics, performance and comfort to all riders.

Full Carbon Fork with 15mm Thru Axle

The Search features a full carbon fork with a pronounced rake that extends beyond a trailing dropout. This distinctive design feature helps to deflect road vibrations before they reach a rider’s hands. The fork’s 15 mm thru axle delivers awesome front end stiffness for enhanced responsiveness and cornering ability, ensuring the Search will hold a line and go wherever it is pointed – even when the terrain gets rough.

GIZMO Universal Cable Routing System

The fully proprietary GIZMO system features two-piece GIZMO plugs that create a tight seal, blocking water and debris from entering the frame. GIZMO plugs pinch and hold cables firmly in place, preventing any rattling at entry and exit points. They also enable the rider to pull cables taught so that they can be prevented from rattling around inside the frame.

Arc Endurance

Applied Road Compliance (ARC) technology delivers comfort-enhancing vertical compliance, effectively dampening road vibrations before they reach the rider. Bowed seat stays, arcing chain stays, tapered seat tube, 27.2 mm seat post and fork with pronounced rake and trailing dropout all work together to isolate the rider from fatiguing road chatter.

ArmorLite

We use only the highest quality materials – right down to the resin that holds everything together. Our superior quality ArmorLite resin produces an exceptionally strong bond that enhances frame strength and increases impact resistance. It is so efficient that less of it is required – enabling us to produce carbon frames that are both stronger AND lighter than those manufactured using conventional resins.

Power Chassis with 142x12mm Axle

Norco’s Power Chassis Design gives the Search its responsiveness and explosive acceleration. An ultra-efficient power transfer system characterized by dramatically oversized tubing from head tube to chain stays, the Power Chassis converts energy from a rider’s whole body into forward momentum. Anchored by a 142x12mm rear thru axle, the Search’s Power Chassis enables the rider to go further, faster.

Disc Brakes

The Search frame was ground-up designed around the disc brake solution. Disc brakes deliver exceptional stopping power and controlled modulation in all weather conditions, enabling riders to apply the exact amount of braking force required in any situation. The result? More control and more confidence – no matter the terrain. Discs also afford greater tire clearance for compatibility with wider, more capable tires.

Smoothcore

Norco’s SmoothCore process enables us to maintain precision control over all of the inner surfaces of our carbon frames, which is particularly critical at complicated, high-stress areas like the head tube and bottom bracket junctions. At the heart of SmoothCore is our innovative mandrel system.
