    “Norco refreshes this award-winning adventure bike with bomber geometry and ingenious features that let you blaze your own path in total comfort.”

    “The Norco Search XR is not only a best in class performer, but also a head turner. From the second I showed up for the ride until I racked it to leave, I received numerous compliments on the sweet baby blue, fade-to-gray matte paint job. If you’re looking for a bike you’ll love to take out and show off on and off road, your search is over.”

    “Norco is going all-in on the adventure genre with its new Search XR line up.”

    “Adventure, or gravel, bikes have been gaining momentum. With the surge in popularity, a few new ideas are poking through such as 27.5in wheels and wider tires, dropper posts and loads of accessory mounting options. Norco’s new range of Search XR bikes hit those marks and even include two steel options.”

    “Just released, the Norco Search XR is another adventure bike platform aiming to push the limits of what you’d expect from a drop bar bike. With generous tire clearance, rack, fender and bottle mounts, and the choice of a carbon or steel frame, it has all the makings to do just that.”

    “Venerable Canadian manufacturer Norco’s Search XR bike has been highly praised since its 2015 incarnation. For 2018 Norco has made some tweaks to make to improve the machine, perhaps perfecting its single track and fire road bomber.”
