Norco Fat Bikes are designed to carry adventurous riders out into wild places not normally accessible to bicycles. Fat tires help the bike float through sand, snow, mud and other variable terrain, opening the door to epic beach rides and mid-winter expeditions. Lightweight, Norco-designed aluminum frames balance efficiency with comfort; they are sturdy, stable and surprisingly maneuverable. Upright geometry encourages a heads-up positioning that encourages riders to soak in their surroundings as they pedal through places where bikes rarely go.

Norco 5 Point System
  1. Norco-designed 6061 aluminum frame with formed tubing: lightweight and sturdy with low standover for all frame sizes – a plus when riding through sand or snow. Suspended model features suspension-corrected geo.
  2. Rigid or suspension forks: opt for rigid carbon or aluminum fat forks with disc, rack and bottle mounts, or step up to the all new 100mm Rockshox Bluto RL. Both offer plenty of clearance for a tire up to 26 x 4.5.
  3. Vee Snowshoe or CY Fat tires: excellent volume light weight tires with a mid-duty tread – perfect for riding through sand, snow and other variable terrain.
  4. SRAM disc brakes: deliver superior stopping power and utilize DOT fluid, which won’t freeze up like mineral oil used in other brake systems.
  5. Fat bike-specific cranks with low gearing options: low gearing for riding through deep sand or snow; also helps counteract the increased rolling resistance of the larger tires.
