Overview

The Fluid FS 7 is the perfect trail weapon. With no-compromise geometry designed around 650b wheels, the Fluid FS 7 is optimized to get maximum fun out of very trail you ride. The trail-tuned A.R.T. suspension and short, stiff rear end will have you snapping around corners, exploding up technical climbs, and flowing through rocky, rooty descents. Take your trail riding to the next level with the Fluid FS 7.

To some, it’s about carving endless ribbons of buff, flowy singletrack. To others, it’s the challenge of punchy trails, technical climbs and off-camber roots. Yes, yes and yes.

Advanced Ride Technology
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... [read more]e optimize for each intended use. 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.

Tapered Headtube

Tapered head tubes provide three major benefits to riders: stiffness, responsiveness and durability. A wider head tube junction leaves room for a larger down... [read more] tube, enabling engineers to create a stiffer, more efficient pedaling platform. The wider junction also enables us to use forks with stiffer, stronger fork crowns and steer tubes; these forks are less prone to flex, so riders experience enhanced responsiveness and control in the handling of the bike. Tapered head tubes also enable engineers to optimize headset bearings. Oversized 1 1/2” lower bearings are stronger and more durable, and they are better at dissipating loads and handling impacts. Smaller 1 1/8” upper bearings, which experience less load, are lighter. Combined, all of these tapered head tube benefits contribute to a more thrilling ride experience.
