Overview

Norco's Threshold Carbon is a cyclocross race machine developed on Canada's Pacific Coast: a region characterized by rugged landscapes and abundant precipitation. The Threshold is a product of our demanding environment and a symbol of Norco's distinctly Canadian take on the cyclocross tradition. Designed and tested in our backyard, and proven on racecourses around the world, the Threshold Carbon is how Norco does cyclocross.

The toughest riders don’t shy away from harsh weather: they embrace it. Rain, wind, sand and mud? Bring it on. No one said bike racing was supposed to be easy.
