The Bigfoot is a fatbike 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. The Bigfoot’s lightweight, Norco-designed aluminum frame balances efficiency with comfort; it is 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.
  2. Aluminum fat fork with disc mount: lightweight, tough and delivers lots of tire clearance for the 26 x 4.0 tire.
  3. Vee Mission 26 x 4.0 tire: excellent volume and a mid-duty tread – perfect for riding through sand, snow and other variable terrain.
  4. Avid hydraulic disc brakes: deliver superior stopping power and utilize DOT fluid, which won’t freeze up like mineral oil used in other brake systems.
  5. 32/22T crank/9-speed 12-36T cassette: low gearing for riding through deep sand or snow; also helps counteract the increased rolling resistance of the larger tires.
