Fatbike Republic takes the Norco Ithaqua 2S to the trails
December 15, 2017
Combining fat bike versatility with race bike performance, the Norco Ithaqua Carbon delivers the full fat bike experience without the weight. Being the ultimate ride for all-season cyclists, the Ithaqua was the subject of a recent trail bike review by Fatbike Republic that speaks to the bike’s quick ride feel and XC capabilities.
“Norco really did its homework with the geometry on this bike. The XC inspired headtube angle, coupled with the mid-range chainstay length and slacker seat tube angle made the Ithaqua 2S feel really quick and agile.”
“The Ithaqua 2S also feels quite at home crawling over and through rocks, ruts and roots and exploring uncharted territory. This bike just feels right.”
“It can easily hit the trails with any regular hard-tail bike, and tackle most places you would normally ride a full-suspension.”
“The 2018 Norco Ithaqua 2S is first and foremost a fatbike. However, its XC inspired carbon chassis, durable components and suspension fork makes it one heck of a trail bike.”
