The Storm picks up where road, gravel, and hybrid bikes can't go – fatter tires, off-road-oriented progressive design, and features that'll give riders the chance to truly experience what mountain biking is truly all about in a bike that won't break the bank.
Whether you've found your way back to bike after years away, or are just exploring a new way to ride, the Storm offers quality, performance and accessibility to a wide array of riders, and is the perfect chance to give you the time and versatility to learn what kind of mountain biking is perfect for you!
The Storm uses Norco's holistic approach to fit and geometry to achieve its nimble, confident trail performance. The unique combination of longer reach, slacker head tube angle and steep seat tube angle provides a more forward weight distribution within a longer wheelbase. This allows more powerful, efficient pedaling, increased climbing traction and added grip and control when descending to help make the most of every ride.
Each Storm features a 100mm suspension fork – the perfect amount for off-road adventure and exploration, without feeling like you're carrying around extra weight or bulk that you don't need.
By routing the brake and shift cables inside the Storm 1 and 2 frames, they are out of harm's way and away from the elements. That means shifting and braking performance last longer between services, and the bikes look clean! Storm 3 and 4’s external routing makes service quick and simple.
The Storm series comes equipped with 2.25" tires for a smooth, all-round fast ride, but the frame can take up to 2.35" rubber, so if your adventures start to get a little looser, just throw on some wider rubber, and the Storm is good to go!
Depending on what frame size you ride, the Storm is available in a wheel size to suit you. The XS, and S are equipped with 27.5" tires to help fit smaller riders, and the L and XL feature 29" wheels so taller riders can take advantage of their smooth ride. If you ride a medium, you're in luck! You get to choose either wheel size depending on your preference!
