German-based publication E-MTB News recently underwent a test
to find the top E-mountain bike that features a carbon frame, 150 mm of travel and battery capacity over 500 watts. By the end of the test, they came to the conclusion that the Norco Sight VLT 2 was the cream of the crop due to its brilliant handling and strong trail performance.
For the review team at E-MTB, the Sight climbed like a dream on the uphill, allowing them to clean technical sections with ease.
Uphill is a lot of fun with the Norco Sight VLT. On our test round in the Spanish Aínsa we had to master a technical uphill. With the Norco Sight - by the way the third E-MTB on this day - we [made it through] this section without [putting a foot down], which we [were unable to do] before. The good weight distribution and the superior handling make this e-mountain bike a real climbing king.
As for on the way down, the addition of a pedal assist motor didn’t bring any hindrance to the handling of the Sight VLT.
With 160mm travel at the front and 150mm at the rear, the RockShox suspension provides enough lift to smooth even coarser slopes and [ride] at high speed. The weight is well balanced and makes this E-MTB a truly agile trail runner.
To sum up their thoughts and why it took the edge as best E-MTB’s top “E-Enduro” bike of 2019:
The Norco Sight VLT 2 is a lightweight e-enduro bike with excellent handling and great performance on the trail … absolutely no weaknesses.
