Norco Range C2 29 put to the test in Bike Magazine’s 2018 Bible of Bike Tests
January 8, 2018
Unleashing its full potential when trails turn downhill, the Norco Range C2 29er was a recent subject in the 29-inch-wheeled bike category of Bike Magazine’s 2018 Bible of Bike Tests. The Range Carbon and its burly component mix impressed test riders Will Ritchie, Ryan Cleek and Jonathon Weber with its ability to withstand punishment on rough, high-speed and technical descends.
Read on for some of the test riders’ thoughts on the bike’s components and handling characteristics.
“The parts are meant for unflappable abuse, and they certainly seem to match the Range’s capable character.”
“The faster the Range went, the happier it became. The more forceful the pumping, preloading and body English, the more reciprocal the Range became in manner, and the bike wholeheartedly came to life.”
“On our higher-speed, root stutter and long line-of-sight descent, it was rock solid, unperturbed with a steadiness that could not be bothered.”
“So who’s at home on the Range? A sender.”
