has become a distinguished voice in cycling over the past few years. The credibility of this publication spans disciplines but the core of trail and all mountain riding is where word travels furthest. With this in mind, when they say they like something it must be worth talking about. Swinging a leg over the 2014 Norco Sight Carbon LE
, this Killer B bike came out with shining praise from the whole editorial team.
Words from Switchback Magazine - Issue 16
Last year we boldly stated that that Norco Sight Killer B was the best 27.5 mountain bike that we had ridden. A year has passed and the market has become flooded with 27.5 machines. With most major manufacturers joining the game, Norco has positioned itself to remain out front by introducing a carbon version of the Sight, and at the top of the line is the Sight Carbon LE FS.
Essentially the same as the alloy version but constructed from carbon, the Sight Carbon allowed Norco to smooth out the junctions for a cleaner appearance. Adding to the sleeker look is internal cable routing for the rear derailleur rear brake and dropper post. The frame is built around Norco's proprietary Gravity Tune sizing, which adjusts the rear-center I front-center ratio across frame sizes to allow a wide range of different riders to be placed in a balanced position on the bike. Like the alloy version, the Sight Carbon LE FS uses Norco's A.R.T. four-bar suspension system to get a 140mm of travel in the front and rear.
