Following the recent launch of the new Norco Sight VLT, Australian Mountain Bike Magazine tested the bike and assessed if its dialed numbers on paper and its clean design can stack up on the trail. Impressed by its exceptional ride handling and no-compromise, e-MTB rated spec selection, test riders called the Sight VLT a “great introduction to the world of performance e-trail bikes without the hefty price tags of others”.

Read on for some impressions and opinions:
“The Norco Sight VLT hums along through undulating singletrack smoothing out the bumps so you can churn through trail in a state of constant flow.”

“The Norco Sight VLT eats the trail with the ups becoming just as engaging as the downs. Whilst this is fun it's when the terrain gets steeper and rougher that the Sight VLT's true colours shine through.”
“This bike is made to be ridden fast in the rough. Pointed down a hill this thing is on another level, at speed it is so stable it gives you the confidence to go that bit faster and brake that bit later.”

“In the rougher stuff the extra weight of the bike makes it feel more planted and less jittery, find a place to throw in a couple of extra pedal strokes on the exit of a corner and the boost to your momentum adds the fuel to this fire.”
“The parts kit is spot on, allowing for speccing the latest 1x12 drivetrain but without the premium price tag of top bling.”
