Fluid 7.1 HT+ Wins Mountain Bike Editors’ Choice Award
April 25, 2017
The Norco Fluid platform has once again been recognized by Bicycling Magazine, as the Fluid 7.1 HT+ earned one of its coveted Editors’ Choice Awards. Last year, the honour was given to the Fluid Forma 7.2.
Among only 14 mountain bikes to receive an Editors’ Choice Award this year, the Fluid HT+ was a new addition to the Fluid family for 2017. Featuring 650 Plus wheels, RockShox Reba RL fork, Shimano SLX components, and dropper post, the Fluid 7.1 HT+ offers incredible performance and value.
From Bicycling Magazine:
“Norco hits a sweet spot with this rowdy plus-compatible hardtail. There’s a clear value and practicality emphasis, with an aluminum frame and Shimano’s excellent SLX drivetrain and brakes. But it also comes with a 125mm dropper post, a 120mm-travel RockShox Reba RL suspension fork, and wide, 2.8-inch WTB Ranger tires, which make it playful and fun. Testers were impressed by how well it was able to hang with more expensive, higher-tech bikes during our test. And they all agreed: It’s the kind of bike that you can forget about while you’re riding—which is the mark of a really good one to us.” —Joe Lindsey
What the Editors Said: “You don’t think about this bike; you just think about having fun no matter who you’re riding with.” “I was hitting drops on a $1,700 hardtail!”
