Norco 5 Point System
  1. Proprietary carbon road race frame: designed for speed and produced using Norco’s most advanced manufacturing processes, the Tactic frame is the absolute stiffest and lightest we make.
  2. Road Race geometry: designed with input from our road race teams, the Tactic’s steep angles and a short wheel base demand an aggressive riding position that maximizes sprinting power and efficiency.
  3. Tapered head tube and full carbon fork: work as a system to maximize front-end stiffness, delivering an exceptionally responsive ride experience.
  4. Power Chassis Design: the Tactic’s oversized down tube, BB shell and chain stays work together to create an extraordinarily rigid pedaling platform.
  5. ARC Race stays: engineered to optimize the stiffness-to-compliance ratio to maximize racer comfort without any compromise to pedaling efficiency and power transfer.
