  • Dirt Rag: Norco Torrent is “Exactly what a modern hardtail should be”

    February 29, 2016

    Norco Torrent 7.1

    The stellar reviews continue to flow in for the Norco Torrent! Dirt Rag Magazine has been testing our 650B Plus hardtail since December and have published a full review in their latest issue.

    The Torrent 7.1, featuring Gravity Tune, 3.0″ tires and a 130mm travel fork, had Dirt Rag editor Eric McKeegan singing praises for its solid part spec and dialed geometry.

    “Norco has a history with heavy-duty hardtails, and the 27plus Torrent might be the most capable hardtail in that history,” wrote McKeegan. “The parts spec gets well-deserved attention, but the fun and modern geometry is the star of the show.”

    McKeegan summed up his review by saying: “Norco has been making some of the best-handling trail bikes on the market for years, and the Torrent doesn’t interrupt this streak.”
