DEMO RIDES 2018

Let the ride decide

EXPERIENCE UNPARALLELED RIDE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE

We’ve built our Norco tradition and philosophy around a simple goal: to make your riding experience the very best it can be. The distinctive “Norco Ride” is defined by an indescribable surge of confidence: the sensation of being perfectly poised and comfortable the moment you begin turning the cranks. That sensation stays with you as the terrain shifts: from the steepest ascents to the fastest, most technical descents, you remain planted, in control. We are so confident that a ride experience will convince you of this that we are bringing our bikes to you, so you can let the ride decide.

How long can I test a bike for?

A:

Q:

What is Gravity Tune?

A:

Equal weight distribution regardless of rider height. Traditional frame designs disregard rear-center lengths when changing size, leading to sub-optimal riding positions for some riders. Available only on Norco bikes, Gravity Tune adjusts the rear center proportionally with the front center, meaning larger frames have longer rear centers than smaller frames. As a result, the rider’s weight is always optimally distributed over the bike regardless of their height, leading to equal ride characteristics and unrivalled control for all.
