Created in the rugged British Columbia mountains that inspire every bike we make, the Fluid HT is built with nimble, confident handling that’ll give you every opportunity to discover which type of trail riding you prefer, allowing you to ride your best once you get there. The progressive aluminum frame design creates a powerful pedaling position, distributes your weight ideally between both wheels, and allows the front suspension to soak up bumps while keeping your tires connected to the trail.
What does this mean? More of your energy goes into making the bike surge forward, minimizing fatigue, and maximizing your confidence on the trail and the size of your grin as you pedal your way to adventure.
By implementing many of the same features and technologies that give our top-tier bikes their world-renowned performance, the Fluid HT gives a wide range of riders access to an even broader array of trails and all kinds of adventures.
The Fluid HT uses Norco's holistic approach to fit and geometry to achieve its playful, capable singletrack 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 for more powerful pedaling, increased climbing traction and added grip and control when descending so you can confidently navigate the trail.
The premium X6 double-butted aluminum frameset features size scaled tubing to maintain the same stiffness and ride quality across all frame sizes. This allows every rider to enjoy the same responsive and playful trail riding experience. Thoughtful design details like internal cable routing and smooth welding technology allow for clean lines and a quiet, rattle-free ride.
Thoughtful component selection at all price points brings performance to Fluid HT riders of all levels. Featuring dropper posts, reliable 1x drivetrains, and tubeless compatible 2.6" tires for maximum traction and control, the Fluid HT is ready for the trails you know and the ones you have yet to explore.
Designed around 27.5" wheels for XS-M frame sizes and 29" wheels for M-XL, the Fluid HT gives medium-sized riders a choice of wheel size allowing them to further fine tune handling characteristics based on their size, riding style and preferences. Both are tuned to deliver almost identical ride handling and optimal performance on any trail you can find.
