TESTED ON THE RACE COURSE AS PART OF THE NORCO RACE DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

TO THE LIMIT: THE REVOLVER FS, YOUR XC RACE WEAPON

To The Limit

The 100mm Revolver full suspension is the ultimate XC Race weapon. The stiff, feather-light carbon frame will have you surging up climbs, while racer-approved Gravity Tune geometry ensures the bike and rider are poised and confident on descents.

“I’ve ridden the hardtail a few times on racecourses this year, but mostly I find I’m choosing the dually. It’s super fun, and it makes up for mistakes you make when you’re fatigued. I can’t help but smile when I ride it, so it’s really fun to race it.” - Haley Smith, U23 Canadian Champion
(Quote: Canadian Cycling Magazine)

With kinematics optimized for cross-country racing and A.R.T. suspension, the Revolver delivers maximum pedaling efficiency and predictable, stable support when the course gets rough.

“We have the ART (Advanced Ride Technology) rear suspension, which is a modified four bar linkage. It’s really smooth. One of the things I noticed is that the bike has a rearward axle path in the back, so when you hit a bump, the wheel moves up and back so you’re always able to move forward.” – Andrew L’Esperance, Norco Factory Team
(Quote: Canadian Cycling Magazine)

The Revolver FS is the ideal bike for the Norco Factory Team, and for all riders who are aiming for the podium every time the start whistle is blown. As a part of the Norco Race Development program, the Revolver FS has won a national title, seen the podium in every single Canada Cup race this season, and won the overall Canada Cup title.

With a lightweight carbon frame, cross-country race geometry, Gravity Tune, SmoothCore, Armorlite resin, and ART suspension, the all-new Revolver FS has what it takes to win - you supply the heart.

Norco’s 5 Point System: The bike’s five main features and the distinct rider benefit that results from each feature.

  1. Carbon XC Race frame:

    The all-new Revolver is the stiffest and lightest full suspension XC Race frame we’ve ever made. Period.

  2. 650B or 29”:

    Available in both 650B and 29er options, fast rolling choices for where you ride.

  3. GIZMO universal internal cable routing system:

    Proprietary system keeps bike quiet by preventing cable rattle at entry/exit points and within the frame; keeps water and debris outside the frame where it belongs.

  4. A.R.T. Suspension:

    Optimized for XC racing, the horst-link suspension is tuned to deliver incredible pedaling efficiency, small bump compliance and impressive descending capability.

  5. 142 x 12 rear thru axles:

    improved lateral stiffness for pedaling efficiency and a ride that tracks confidently through the most technical terrain.

Key Technologies

A simple solution to a complex problem, Gravity Tune fixes the front-centre/rear-centre ratio across all frame sizes, effectively optimizing geometry for every bike in the line. As a result, weight is always optimally distributed – regardless of rider height. Available only on Norco Bikes, Gravity Tune means equal ride characteristics and unrivalled control for all.

Norco’s Smoothcore process enables us to create a strong frame structure with very smooth inner surfaces, using the least amount of material possible, resulting in reduced frame weights.

Advanced Ride Technology, or A.R.T., is the direct link between engineering and experience. More than a single suspension platform, A.R.T. is a system that we optimize for each intended use. Norco’s engineering team strategically manipulates pivot locations to precision-tune suspension kinematics, ensuring that every full suspension bike will excel in the environment it was designed for.

Norco’s carbon frames are manufactured with only the highest quality materials, right down to the resin we use to hold everything together. Our superior quality ArmorLite resin produces an exceptionally strong bond that enhances frame strength and increases impact resistance.
