To create the new Sight, we drew on the inspiration we find in the mountains around us, and let it drive innovation that can only come from re-thinking the science behind the design.
Once we’d determined what we wanted to achieve – to build a new mountain bike that boosts every rider’s confidence with improved descending capability, adept, sure-footed climbing, and efficient pedaling – the engineers took over, and created an entirely new way to design a bike.
By digging deep into how a rider’s centre of gravity impacts the bike’s performance, they used anthropometric data, proprietary kinematic software and a new range of setup parameters to precisely match each individual rider to their bike. It is a whole new perspective on bike design we call, Ride Aligned™.
The results? The Sight delivers maximum front and rear wheel grip on climbs and descents, maintains momentum and cadence in technical situations, and allows the suspension to move freely without absorbing drivetrain energy. This creates an All-Mountain experience that feels dynamic under rider input and provides a confident, stable chassis when charging through rough terrain.
It’s a completely new take on All-Mountain that’ll blow away your expectations – and shatter the status quo.
It’s the Science of Send.
The 2020 Sight uses Norco's Ride Aligned™ design system which matches each individual bike to the human who rides it, creating a customized platform that is both stable and balanced, allowing the rider to push harder. Using individual rider metrics, precise suspension kinematics, and proprietary app technology, you’ll align with your ride experience like never before.
Stop trying to squeeze into the same old frame of reference. Find your own angle.
Every Sight features short seat tubes for maximum standover clearance, allowing size-specific, long-travel dropper posts to get seats completely out of the way in the rough stuff.
The Sight's RockShox and Fox suspension components are mated to our precisely-engineered Ride Aligned™ kinematics to produce 150mm of travel in back and 160mm up front. Combined with the Ride Aligned™ Bike Setup Guide, the Sight's suspension is easy to dial-in for every rider.
We equipped every Sight with 4-piston hydraulic disc brakes and 200/180mm rotors to give you the speed-control you need to hit the perfect line on every ride and pull you back when the ruckus gets a little out of hand.
Every Sight, in every size can fit a full-sized water bottle. Every frame size is available in both 27.5" and 29". There's enough space for 2.6" tires, but we’ve equipped 2.4's and 2.5's with tough, supportive side-walls that are lighter than DH, but tougher than Trail because we know details matter. All of them.
The Sight features custom frame protection and a new shuttle guard to protect it from long, rowdy days on the trail and when it’s hanging off the back of your buddy’s pickup, and the under-top tube mounts provide easy mounting for some of the most popular aftermarket storage bags or accessories.
To customize your Ride Aligned™ experience, we tie every aspect of the system together with the Ride Aligned™ Bike Setup Guide.
The app-based assistant helps tune your precise fit and optimise your suspension setup based on your unique body makeup, the way you ride, and the types of trails you expect to encounter. It’s simple to use, but incredibly precise, making the most of every detail we’ve engineered into the Ride Aligned™ design.
