Select a Bike Model Below:

Norco’s cyclocross race machine was designed and developed on Canada’s Pacific Coast: a region characterized by rugged landscapes and abundant precipitation. The all-new Threshold is a product of our demanding environment and a symbol of Norco’s distinctly Canadian take on the cyclocross tradition. Tested on the trails and proven on the racecourse, the 2015 Threshold is how Norco does cyclocross.

Norco 5 Point System
  1. Sub-1000g carbon frame with size-scaled tubing: lightweight for easy shouldering, lateral stiffness for maximum power transfer and vertical compliance so riders can stay on the gas all race long.
  2. Full carbon fork with 15mm thru axle: delivers maximum front-end stiffness for enhanced responsiveness and control through rough, rutted terrain.
  3. GIZMO universal cable routing system: fully proprietary system prevents cable rattle at entry/exit points and within the frame; keeps water and debris outside the frame where it belongs.
  4. Power Chassis Design Design with 142x12mm rear thru axle: oversized head tube junction, down tube, BB shell and chain stays deliver optimal lateral stiffness for maximum pedaling efficiency and power transfer.
  5. ARC Race stays and 27.2mm seatpost: optimized stiffness-to-compliance ratio to maximize racer comfort without any compromise to pedaling efficiency or power transfer.
