Overview

Redesigned for 2017, the Sight Carbon is the complete package for all mountain riding. A short, ultra-stiff rear end, low BB and slack head angle create a ride that begs to be ridden fast and far. All mountain-tuned A.R.T. suspension system powers riders up the steepest ascents and delivers grin-inducing playfulness and confidence-inspiring capability on the way down. For those who always lead the pack, the Sight Carbon is the ultimate weapon.

Modern mountain bike trails take us all over the mountain – our bikes and bodies are ready. Up or down, mountain biking means doing it all.

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 w...

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.
