Do you have a budding road racer on your hands? The Valence Aluminum is just the model your looking for and now available in a 650c and 24 youth road bike. Its lightweight X6 alloy frame and carbon fork deliver refined, long-distance comfort and performance. An integrated ARC Endurance system delivers unrivaled vibration dampening, while the super stiff pedaling platform is the source of the bike's punchy acceleration and a highly responsive ride feel - rewarding riders who like to get up out of the saddle.
The Valence’s lightweight X6 alloy frame and carbon fork deliver refined, long distance comfort and performance for road racers and adventurers alike.
The Valence comes with a lightweight, stiff and durable mid modulus carbon fork that is strong enough to take on the rough stuff without the added weight of aluminum.
Norco’s proprietary ARC (Applied Road Compliance) technology helps dampen road vibrations for maximized handling and ride control. ARC Endurance seat stays, seat tube, seat post and fork are extremely effective at dampening road vibrations whether in normal or extreme conditions so you can ride faster and longer.
Quality, durable and low maintenance, the Shimano Claris 8 speed compact drivetrain provides an optimal range of gears for riding roads.
The Norco Valence includes our Gizmo Internal Cable Routing System which keeps out water and debris to prevent any rattling and allows for easy setup and maintenance. It also keeps the bike quiet by preventing cable rattle at entry/exit points and within the frame.
Included in the Valence 650c is the handy Flip Dropout System which allows you to install racks or fenders with ease thanks for a flip-out allow piece that tucks away into the dropout when not in use.
