Gravity Tune


With traditional frame designs, engineers adjust front-centre lengths for each frame size but use a single, fixed rear-centre length. This approach leaves riders of certain body types in a poor position when standing. Poor body position leads to uneven weight distribution and negatively affects traction, control and overall performance and ride characteristics. 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.


Syntace Integrated Derailleur Hanger


Proven to be substantially stiffer and less prone to damage than conventional derailleur hangers, the X-12 system ensures incredibly crisp and precise shifting. Each frame comes with a spare hanger bolt integrated into the frame for emergency trailside repairs.


Tapered Head Tube


Tapered head tubes provide three major benefits to riders: stiffness, responsiveness and durability. A wider head tube junction leaves room for a larger down tube, enabling engineers to create a stiffer, more efficient pedaling platform. The wider junction also enables us to use forks with stiffer, stronger fork crowns and steer tubes; these forks are less prone to flex, so riders experience enhanced responsiveness and control in the handling of the bike. Tapered head tubes also enable engineers to optimize headset bearings. Oversized 1 1/2” lower bearings are stronger and more durable, and they are better at dissipating loads and handling impacts. Smaller 1 1/8” upper bearings, which experience less load, are lighter. Combined, all of these tapered head tube benefits contribute to a more thrilling ride experience.


Power Chassis


Norco’s Power Chassis Design is the ultra-efficient power transfer system that gives our carbon road bikes their responsiveness and explo- sive acceleration. The Power Chassis is a complete pedaling platform designed to convert energy from a rider’s whole body into forward mo- mentum. The design begins at the tapered head tube and leads down through an oversized, down tube that creates an extremely stiff linkage between the front and back end of the bike. The down tube leads into an oversized, super-stiff bottom bracket shell designed to house the most efficient cranks available today. The oversized BB area then leads through to an especially broad set of chain stays, engineered to conduct energy directly from cranks through to the back wheel where they are converted into forward thrust.

Applied Road Compliance


Norco’s performance road frames feature Advanced Road Compliance (ARC) technology, which optimizes the vertical compliance to lateral rigidity ratio for race and endurance applications. ARC seat stays are designed with a distinctive bow shape that works like micro-suspension to dampen fatiguing road vibrations. ARC technology enables us to maximize rider comfort without any sacrifice to the lateral stiffness that gives a high performance road bike its pedaling efficiency and explosiveness.

ARC Endurance: Seat stays are slender and feature a very pronounced bow shape that makes them extremely effective at dampening road vibrations. Chain stays are broad and stiff to ensure optimal pedaling efficiency, and they are engineered to be slightly longer to deliver a more stable ride experience.

ARC Race: Seat stays are slender and feature a less pronounced bow shape that still delivers effective road vibration dampening. Chain stays are broad and extremely stiff to deliver maximum pedaling efficiency, and they are engineered to be slightly shorter to deliver a highly responsive ride experience.


SmoothCore


Structurally speaking, the inside of a carbon frame is just as important as the outside. 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. The secret to SmoothCore is our innovative mandrel system, which eliminates the possibility of wrinkling during the carbon fibre layup process and enables us to guarantee exceptionally smooth inner surfaces throughout the frame. Most importantly to the rider, SmoothCore greatly improves frame strength over conventional carbon layup processes. Norco’s 2013 carbon frames are the strongest and most resilient we’ve ever made, inside and out.


ArmorLite


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, prevents damage and increases impact resistance. ArmorLite resin 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.


Pressfit BB30


A PressFit 30 bottom bracket offers all of the stiffness benefits of a BB30 bottom bracket, and adds a few unique benefits of its own. With PressFit 30 bottom brackets, bearings are housed in nylon cups that are pressed directly into the BB shell. This eliminates the need for the aluminum sleeve used in traditional BB30 designs and therefore reduces overall weight. The PressFit 30 system also creates a better seal around bearings, increasing their lifespan and reducing the possibility of a blowout. PressFit 30 BBs are less prone to creaking than other BBs and are compatible with all BB30 cranksets.


Advanced Ride Technology


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. For downhill applications, we increase rearward axle path for a more controlled ride over gnarly, unpredictable terrain. For cross-country we increase pedaling efficiency and small bump compliance for a faster, smoother ride. A.R.T. delivers four major benefits to riders: enhanced pedaling efficiency, increased square-edge bump compliance, improved braking performance and progressive suspension characteristics. These benefits are balanced in different proportions based on intended use, creating a ride experience unique to each model.

Enhanced Pedaling Efficiency
A.R.T. is designed to effectively manage chain growth to create anti-squat forces that counteract the forces responsible for suspension bob. The result is an incredibly efficient pedaling platform, superior power transfer and unmatched climbing ability.

Increased Square-Edge Bump Compliance
Rearward axle path describes the rear wheel’s trajectory as a bicycle moves through its travel. A.R.T. uses a pronounced rearward axle path that enables the wheel to travel both rearward and upward, up and out of the way of obstacles.

Improved Braking Performance
A pronounced rearward axle path also allows a bike’s suspension to remain fully active when pressure is applied to the brakes. A.R.T. delivers powerful, predictable braking with fully active suspension and superior traction at all times.

Progressive Suspension Characteristics
A.R.T. suspension uses a progressive leverage ratio curve, meaning that the forces required to engage the shock increase progressively as the shock moves through its travel. The first part of the stroke is very supple and effectively absorbs small to medium-sized impacts. Toward the end of the stroke, the shock becomes progressively stiffer, resulting in a ‘bottomless’ feel. To the rider, this progressive curve is experienced as consistent, predictable suspension at every point in the travel.


Holloform Link Arm


Norco’s Holloform linkarm is a hyper-rigid, one-piece linkarm that provides two distinct benefits to riders. First, it provides lateral support to the seat stays and stiffens the rear triangle, keeping the bike tracking straight and true through any terrain. Second, it prevents torsional forces from affecting the rear shock, reducing stiction and increasing shock life.


Post Mount Brakes


Integrated into the rear dropouts, the post mount uses half of the hardware of a normal brake mounting system and creates a stronger structure that reduces braking harmonics.


360 Lock


Norco’s 360º Lock pivots employ a tapered collet insert that, when the pivot hardware is tightened, expands to grip the inner race of the pivot bearing around the full 3600 of its inner diameter. This design creates a much stronger grip, prevents unwanted forces from acting on the bearing and prolongs bearing lifespan.

ARC Race: Seat stays are slender and feature a less pronounced bow shape that still delivers effective road vibration dampening. Chain stays are broad and extremely stiff to deliver maximum pedaling efficiency, and they are engineered to be slightly shorter to deliver a highly responsive ride experience.


SmoothCore


Structurally speaking, the inside of a carbon frame is just as important as the outside. 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. The secret to SmoothCore is our innovative mandrel system, which eliminates the possibility of wrinkling during the carbon fibre layup process and enables us to guarantee exceptionally smooth inner surfaces throughout the frame. Most importantly to the rider, SmoothCore greatly improves frame strength over conventional carbon layup processes. Norco’s 2013 carbon frames are the strongest and most resilient we’ve ever made, inside and out.


ArmorLite


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, prevents damage and increases impact resistance. ArmorLite resin 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.


Pressfit BB30


A PressFit 30 bottom bracket offers all of the stiffness benefits of a BB30 bottom bracket, and adds a few unique benefits of its own. With PressFit 30 bottom brackets, bearings are housed in nylon cups that are pressed directly into the BB shell. This eliminates the need for the aluminum sleeve used in traditional BB30 designs and therefore reduces overall weight. The PressFit 30 system also creates a better seal around bearings, increasing their lifespan and reducing the possibility of a blowout. PressFit 30 BBs are less prone to creaking than other BBs and are compatible with all BB30 cranksets.


Advanced Ride Technology


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. For downhill applications, we increase rearward axle path for a more controlled ride over gnarly, unpredictable terrain. For cross-country we increase pedaling efficiency and small bump compliance for a faster, smoother ride. A.R.T. delivers four major benefits to riders: enhanced pedaling efficiency, increased square-edge bump compliance, improved braking performance and progressive suspension characteristics. These benefits are balanced in different proportions based on intended use, creating a ride experience unique to each model.

Enhanced Pedaling Efficiency
A.R.T. is designed to effectively manage chain growth to create anti-squat forces that counteract the forces responsible for suspension bob. The result is an incredibly efficient pedaling platform, superior power transfer and unmatched climbing ability.

Increased Square-Edge Bump Compliance
Rearward axle path describes the rear wheel’s trajectory as a bicycle moves through its travel. A.R.T. uses a pronounced rearward axle path that enables the wheel to travel both rearward and upward, up and out of the way of obstacles.

Improved Braking Performance
A pronounced rearward axle path also allows a bike’s suspension to remain fully active when pressure is applied to the brakes. A.R.T. delivers powerful, predictable braking with fully active suspension and superior traction at all times.

Progressive Suspension Characteristics
A.R.T. suspension uses a progressive leverage ratio curve, meaning that the forces required to engage the shock increase progressively as the shock moves through its travel. The first part of the stroke is very supple and effectively absorbs small to medium-sized impacts. Toward the end of the stroke, the shock becomes progressively stiffer, resulting in a ‘bottomless’ feel. To the rider, this progressive curve is experienced as consistent, predictable suspension at every point in the travel.


Holloform Link Arm


Norco’s Holloform linkarm is a hyper-rigid, one-piece linkarm that provides two distinct benefits to riders. First, it provides lateral support to the seat stays and stiffens the rear triangle, keeping the bike tracking straight and true through any terrain. Second, it prevents torsional forces from affecting the rear shock, reducing stiction and increasing shock life.


Post Mount Brakes


Integrated into the rear dropouts, the post mount uses half of the hardware of a normal brake mounting system and creates a stronger structure that reduces braking harmonics.


360 Lock


Norco’s 360º Lock pivots employ a tapered collet insert that, when the pivot hardware is tightened, expands to grip the inner race of the pivot bearing around the full 3600 of its inner diameter. This design creates a much stronger grip, prevents unwanted forces from acting on the bearing and prolongs bearing lifespan.

The Technology Inside the Range Carbon 7.2 Framekit

Flip Dropout

Brand new for 2014, the proprietary Flip Dropout features a sturdy Flip Chip that adapts to the specific needs of the rider. Extended, the Flip Chip features an eyelet that functions as an additional mounting point for fenders. The Flip eyelet is intentionally set on a different plane than the primary eyelet to ensure maximum fender/rack compatibility. Retracted, the Flip Chip is hidden neatly out of the way.

Gravity Tune


With traditional frame designs, engineers adjust front-centre lengths for each frame size but use a single, fixed rear-centre length. This approach leaves riders of certain body types in a poor position when standing. Poor body position leads to uneven weight distribution and negatively affects traction, control and overall performance and ride characteristics. 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.


Syntace Integrated Derailleur Hanger


Proven to be substantially stiffer and less prone to damage than conventional derailleur hangers, the X-12 system ensures incredibly crisp and precise shifting. Each frame comes with a spare hanger bolt integrated into the frame for emergency trailside repairs.


Tapered Head Tube


Tapered head tubes provide three major benefits to riders: stiffness, responsiveness and durability. A wider head tube junction leaves room for a larger down tube, enabling engineers to create a stiffer, more efficient pedaling platform. The wider junction also enables us to use forks with stiffer, stronger fork crowns and steer tubes; these forks are less prone to flex, so riders experience enhanced responsiveness and control in the handling of the bike. Tapered head tubes also enable engineers to optimize headset bearings. Oversized 1 1/2” lower bearings are stronger and more durable, and they are better at dissipating loads and handling impacts. Smaller 1 1/8” upper bearings, which experience less load, are lighter. Combined, all of these tapered head tube benefits contribute to a more thrilling ride experience.


Power Chassis


Norco’s Power Chassis Design is the ultra-efficient power transfer system that gives our carbon road bikes their responsiveness and explo- sive acceleration. The Power Chassis is a complete pedaling platform designed to convert energy from a rider’s whole body into forward mo- mentum. The design begins at the tapered head tube and leads down through an oversized, down tube that creates an extremely stiff linkage between the front and back end of the bike. The down tube leads into an oversized, super-stiff bottom bracket shell designed to house the most efficient cranks available today. The oversized BB area then leads through to an especially broad set of chain stays, engineered to conduct energy directly from cranks through to the back wheel where they are converted into forward thrust.

Smaller 1 1/8” upper bearings, which experience less load, are lighter. Combined, all of these tapered head tube benefits contribute to a more thrilling ride experience.


Applied Road Compliance


Norco’s performance road frames feature Advanced Road Compliance (ARC) technology, which optimizes the vertical compliance to lateral rigidity ratio for race and endurance applications. ARC seat stays are designed with a distinctive bow shape that works like micro-suspension to dampen fatiguing road vibrations. ARC technology enables us to maximize rider comfort without any sacrifice to the lateral stiffness that gives a high performance road bike its pedaling efficiency and explosiveness.

ARC Endurance: Seat stays are slender and feature a very pronounced bow shape that makes them extremely effective at dampening road vibrations. Chain stays are broad and stiff to ensure optimal pedaling efficiency, and they are engineered to be slightly longer to deliver a more stable ride experience.

Norco 5 Point System
  1. Proprietary carbon Killer B frame: optimized ride characteristics for aggressive all-mountain riding and enduro racing, 20% lighter than the aluminum version with the added strength of carbon.
  2. 27.5”/650B-specific all-mountain geometry with Gravity Tune: ensures optimal body position and weight distribution to riders of all sizes, delivering superior handling and control at high speeds.
  3. All-Mountain/Enduro forks: 27.5”/650B-specific, 160mm RockShox Pike or Fox 34 forks deliver plush travel and superior stiffness for aggressive descents.
  4. A.R.T. suspension: optimized kinematics for aggressive all-mountain riding and enduro racing; tames burly trails for maximum speed and control. Frame compatible with piggyback-style air shocks.
  5. 27.5”/650B wheels: enhance the all-mountain riding experience – larger wheels smooth out rough, off-camber descents, giving riders more control and confidence at high speed.
