Torrent A1 HT

Using Norco's holistic approach to fit and geometry, the Torrent A1’s unique combination of our next generation of Gravity Tune, 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 pedaling, increased climbing traction and added grip and control when descending.

To go along with the basic theme of the welded aluminum frame, we spec’d the Torrent S2 with a Shimano Deore 12-speed drivetrain. We also gave it some real big bike credibility with a 150mm RockShox 35 Gold RL fork, a burly Deore crankset, and strong Shimano M420 4-piston brakes.
