Overview

The redesigned 2017 Range Carbon 7 is prepared for anything the trail throws its way. Featuring category-bending capability, the 170mm 650b Range Carbon 7 is both an enduro race rig and the ideal backcountry accomplice - ready to take on any trail, anywhere. All mountain-tuned A.R.T. suspension helps the bike climb with impressive efficiency, but it is when the trail turns downhill that this truly comes alive - delivering unrivalled high-speed power, control and confidence to the rider.

Charge fearlessly down the mountain, then pedal back to the top to do it again. Hours in the saddle leave our minds and bodies drained… we leave everything on the racecourse.

Advanced Ride Technology

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.
