MEET THE ALL-NEW

The all-new Sight Carbon is a versatile trail killer. Redesigned around both 650b and 29” wheels, the 2017 Sight Carbon has modern All-Mountain geometry that is longer, lower, and slacker. The A.R.T. Suspension system features updated kinematics for improved performance, and all models have spec that feels like a custom build right out of the box. Balanced climbing and descending capability combined with grin-inducing playfulness and nimble handling make the Sight the ideal accomplice on any aggressive All-Mountain ride.

Geometry First

THE DIFFERENCE IS IN THE DETAILS

Norco engineers obsess over millimeters and every fraction of a degree, because dialed geometry can be the difference between an average ride or an epic experience. The 2017 Sight Carbon is the latest example of Norco's evolved geometry philosophy, which helps us deliver optimal fit and handling characteristics for every rider – not only for your frame size, but also your preferred wheel size.

650B & 29” PLATFORMS

OFFERING YOU CHOICE WITHOUT COMPROMISE

We redesigned the Sight Carbon from the ground up in two wheel sizes, introducing a 29" that has been engineered to have the same fit and nearly identical handling characteristics as the 650B. Whether you prefer the quick acceleration and playfulness of 650B wheels or the improved rollover and momentum of a 29" - the Sight Carbon offers riders choice without compromise.

Technology & Innovation

UPDATED GEOMETRY

AGGRESSIVE AND PROGRESSIVE

The updated All-Mountain geometry on the 2017 Sight Carbon is now longer, lower and slacker for a more stable yet playful feel on the trail.

OPTIMAL WEIGHT DISTRIBUTION

Gravity Tune fixes the front-centre/rear-centre ratio across all frame sizes. This means that a large frame will not only have a longer front end, but a proportionally longer rear end than a small frame. This keeps the rider’s weight optimally distributed over the bike, delivering equal ride characteristics and unrivalled control for riders on all frame sizes.

REACH PLUS
AND STACK PLUS

OPTIMAL FIT AND HANDLING

Stem length is incorporated into the bike’s geometry measurements as Reach Plus and Stack Plus to achieve the optimal fit and handling across each wheel and frame size combination. To achieve the desired fit and handling characteristics of the Sight 650B, the Sight 29" uses a shorter stem, longer top tube and slightly steeper head angle.

AN EFFICIENT PEDALING PLATFORM

Updated suspension kinematics optimized for All-Mountain riding to deliver super-efficient climbing, confident, lively descending and a highly responsive ride experience.

+

METRIC REAR SHOCKS

IMPROVED SUSPENSION PERFORMANCE

The Sight Carbon is equipped with trunnion-mounted metric rear shocks, which provides benefits to frame design as well as suspension performance – metric shocks offer improved durability and small bump compliance.

ENDURO MAX BEARINGS

DESIGNED FOR DURABILITY

All pivot locations in the Sight frame use Enduro Max bearings. These bearings have a greater load capacity than standard radial bearings, and deeper race grooves for more lateral support to handle the forces placed on mountain bike pivots.

PROGRESSIVE CARBON DESIGN

A STRONGER, LIGHTER FRAME

We adhere to a strict design philosophy to realize our goal of producing a highly efficient carbon structure. Simplified tube cross sections meet and blend seamlessly with one another at all junctions. SmoothCore mandrels enable us to maintain precise control over the inner surfaces of the frame, particularly critical at complicated, high stress areas like the head tube and bottom bracket junctions. Our superior ArmorLite resin further enhances frame strength and impact resistance. As a result, the Sight Carbon achieves the ideal balance of stiffness, weight and durability.

SIZE-SCALED TUBING

OPTIMAL FRAME STIFFNESS AND RIDE QUALITY

By increasing tube profile dimensions in proportion with frame size, Norco engineers are able to calibrate frame stiffness to the weight of the prospective rider. This ensures that a heavier rider on an extra large frame will experience the same optimal ride characteristics, performance and comfort as a lighter rider on a small frame.

GIZMO CABLE MANAGEMENT

VERSATILE INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING

The latest generation Gizmo internal routing system works with up to five cables to suit any cockpit setup. Large ports make routing cables easy, and the adaptable port covers keep cables tight and secure while blocking water and debris from entering the frame.

+

BOOST 148 SPACING

WIDER, STIFFER, MORE CLEARANCE

BOOST 148 spacing in the rear allows us to keep the chainstays as short as possible, increases tire clearance, and provides the added bonus of a stiffer rear wheel. The extra clearance allows the Sight 650B and Sight 29" to use the same compact rear-centre length for improved handling.

Key Features

THE COMPLETE PACKAGE FOR ALL-MOUNTAIN RIDING

With dialed specs featuring RockShox forks and metric rear shocks, 1x drivetrains, integrated frame protection, wide tubeless-ready rims, stealth dropper posts, and more, the Sight Carbon checks all of the boxes on your All-Mountain wish list.

ROCKSHOX ALL-MOUNTAIN-TUNED FORKS

Rockshox forks with BOOST 110 spacing for increased tire clearance and stiffer wheels. The Sight Carbon 650B uses a 150mm fork, while the 29" uses a 140mm fork to offset the characteristics of the larger wheels.

1x drivetrains

The Sight Carbon is equipped with a 1x drivetrain and a wider gear range on most models for 2017.

ROCKSHOX REAR SUSPENSION

RockShox Deluxe RT3 (Sight C7.1/C9.1 and C7.2/C9.2) and Deluxe RT (C7.3/9.3) with DebonAir for a super supple and reactive ride.

STEALTH DROPPER POST

More control when you need it; stealth routing eliminates excess cable loop

FRONT DERAILLEUR COMPATIBLE

ONE UP mini chain guide using the S3 mount. The S3 mount also gives the rider the option to run a side swing front derailleur.

WIDE RIMS

A wider contact patch for more traction and increased stability for less tire fold. Tubeless-ready to suit different rider preferences.

FRAME PROTECTION

Integrated frame protection under the bottom bracket, on the chain stay, and inside the seat stay.

PERFECT TRAIL TIRES

An aggressive front tire paired to a fast rolling rear tire - the perfect trail combination

WIDE BARS

Wide bars paired with a shorter stem for improved handling
