Climb trails with ease and flow down descents with Norco's Fluid 7.1. With Norco's nimble geometry and plush A.R.T. rear suspension, this full-featured trail bike takes whatever the trail's serving and comes back for seconds. Fox smooths the way with a 120mm 32 Float Performance fork, and a Fox Float rear shock busts the bumps with 120mm in the back. Enjoy 20 buttery-smooth shifting gears and responsive, modulated braking power courtesy of Shimano. Tough, yet fast-rolling 27.5-inch Ales rims wrapped with grippy WTB knobbies cruise over obstacles with ease, and a spread of Norco's durable aluminum components finish out this great build.
A.R.T. stands for Advanced Ride Technology. Each frame using A.R.T. is refined for its intended purpose. In downhill applications, they increase the rearward axle path for a more controlled ride over gnarly, unpredictable terrain. For cross-country, efficiency and small bump compliance is increased for a faster, smoother ride. An optimization of the proven FSR linkage, A.R.T. delivers excellent pedaling efficiency, square-hit compliance, braking performance, along with a progressive leverage ratio for that wonderful bottomless feel.
