Overview

Redesigned for 2017, the Sight Carbon is the complete package for all mountain riding. A short, ultra-stiff rear end, low BB and slack head angle create a ride that begs to be ridden fast and far. All mountain-tuned A.R.T. suspension system powers riders up the steepest ascents and delivers grin-inducing playfulness and confidence-inspiring capability on the way down. For those who always lead the pack, the Sight Carbon is the ultimate weapon.

Modern mountain bike trails take us all over the mountain – our bikes and bodies are ready. Up or down, mountain biking means doing it all.

Advanced Ride Technology

Advanced Ride Technology, or A.R.T., is the direct link between engineering and experience. More than a single suspension platform, A.R.T. is a system that w... [read more]e optimize for each intended use. Norco’s engineering team strategically manipulates pivot locations to precision-tune suspension kinematics, ensuring that every full suspension bike will excel in the environment it was designed for. For downhill applications, we increase rearward axle path for a more controlled ride over gnarly, unpredictable terrain. For cross-country we increase pedaling efficiency and small bump compliance for a faster, smoother ride.

A simple solution to a complex problem, Gravity Tune fixes the front-centre/rear-centre ratio across all frame sizes, effectively optimizing geometry for eve... [read more]ry bike in the line. As a result, weight is always optimally distributed – regardless of rider height. Available only on Norco Bikes, Gravity Tune means equal ride characteristics and unrivalled control for all.

By increasing tube profile dimensions in proportion with frame size, Norco engineers are able to calibrate frame stiffness to the weight of the prospective r... [read more]ider. This ensures that a heavier rider on an extra large frame will experience the same ride characteristics as a lighter rider on a small frame. Though the process is labour-intensive, the result is worth the effort: optimal ride characteristics, performance and comfort for riders of all sizes.
