We work hard to create the best bicycles in the world, and to make sure that we are on the leading edge we support some of the best riders in the world. With a very diverse team of riders – from downhill to cross-country, cyclocross to 4X and road to BMX – our riders help us design and refine our bicycles until they are as close to perfection as possible. These refinements trickle down into every bike we make, which means that every Norco bike is world class. Some of the bicycles you will find under our team are: Team DH, Team Carbon, Range, Phazer, Vixa
Tweak. Refine. Tweak. Refine. Leap Ahead.
Incremental enhancements. Perpetual improvements. Revolutionary Innovation. When advancements are continuously made to every attribute of every component, the result is overall performance that is simply second to none. And to real cycling enthusiasts, there is nothing more gratifying then achieving the ultimate ride. And the best part is we just keep making it better.
This is what SRAM is all about. Sure, a casual rider will appreciate solid performance, reliability, dependability and all the standard qualities one would expect. But it's the riders who live and breathe bicycles who love us most because bicycles are what we love, too. In fact, they're our only love.
The difference between winning and losing often comes down to the amount of traction you have. Kenda tires, like the Nevegal and the Small Block Eight provide all of the traction that our riders could ever want. Kenda's dedication to performance product development is the reason that the Kenda Nevegal has been voted the best tire for the past two years. That's why the Norco Factory Team chooses Kenda tires for all pro rider bikes.
WTB was founded in Marin County, California in 1982, fueled by the need to create durable and reliable mountain bike-specific equipment. Back then mountain biking was a new and burgeoning sport, and mountain bikes weren’t much more than cobbled-together oddities. The original WTB crew was captivated by the experience of riding bikes on dirt trails, and they started creating more durable and functional components for their own bikes. Soon, local frame builders sought to outfit their bikes with WTB’s high-end components. WTB was able to turn our passion for bikes into a successful business.
How the rider feels while on their bike can make or break a ride. Luckily our team runs FSA components which allow them to always feel comfortable and confident on their bikes. Whether it’s their high end K-Force carbon for a XC race or a set of wide Gravity bars for the DH track, FSA is always there. Their passion for riding comes through in the products; what we believe to be the best products around.
Gravity re-defines the meaning of performance, and durability. The laws
of physics speak clearly on this matter; what goes up, must come down,
and usually with significantly greater force. Gravity components are
carefully designed to meet the needs and demands of freeriders,
downhillers, dirt jumpers, and just plain huckers. Gravity components
showcase the ultimate in Freeride and Downhill technologies.

With a passion for building innovative products that exceed the standards, the crew at SixSixOne continually push product development to the limit; providing our team with quality products that fit their needs and lifestyle.
ONE has been recognized as a world leader in moto graphic kits and seat covers since it was founded. Before long we were delivering industry leading moto gear, moto helmets, moto gloves and casual wear to hard core moto riders all over the world. In 2012 the company added innovative mountain bike gear and mountain bike helmets to our product line for our platoon of gravity junkies.
For years gravity riders struggled to keep their chains in place with guides that couldn't handle the heat. Fortunately, e-13 Components got into the kitchen and engineered a solution, changing the world of chain guides for ever. The Norco Factory Team exclusively runs e-13's products including the LG1, and XCX chain guides. These guides keep the chains on and help put our riders on the podium.
