Search Carbon Highest Ranked Gravel Bike by VeloNews
December 9, 2016
VeloNews recently published a list of the year’s best gravel bikes, and the Norco Search Carbon came out on top with the highest ranking.
“The Norco Search Carbon defines what a great gravel bike should be. It feels like a race bike — stiff and responsive — but it’s incredibly comfortable even after long hours on bumpy gravel roads. It utilizes endurance road bike geometry for a more upright position and for added stability. This makes for a comfortable ride over rough terrain or for very long events like the Dirty Kanza 200.” – VeloNews
In the full review, VeloNews pointed to the benefits of Norco’s Applied Road Compliance (ARC) technology, used in the Search Carbon’s ARC Endurance seat stays:
“Aiding in the Search’s comfortable ride are the bike’s bowed seat stays that work like micro-suspension to reduce road vibration without sacrificing pedaling efficiency, delivering a smooth yet exciting ride.” – VeloNews
Norco’s Power Chassis design combined with dual thru axles give the Search Carbon the stiff and responsive qualities that impressed the VeloNews testers:
“When exiting these corners, the Norco feels stiff, fast, and ready to jump at the first application of power.” – VeloNews
