Fluid FS A1 Mountain Bike
Why We Like The Norco Fluid FS A1 Mountain Bike
No matter what path we choose, the Norco Fluid FS is a performance-packed trail machine built for all of us, whether we're just learning the tricks of the trade or we want to ride without limits on every trail. The durable 6061 aluminum frame is built for a lifetime of riding and available in five sizes for all sizes of riders. 130mm of Horst-link rear suspension gives us a smooth ride across the entire mountain and a predictable feel for railing berms and sessioning gnarly rock gardens. The versatile geometry features size-specific chainstay lengths and seat tube angles we all get the best possible performance no matter how tall we are, while the properly slack 65-degree headtube angle makes for smashing through chunder with ease. Plus, the relatively low standover height allows for a long dropper post on every single size.
The Norco Fluid FS A1 kit over-delivers on performance compared to many other bikes in its price range. The precise and reliable Shimano XT 12-speed drivetrain takes care of shifting duties, and a threaded bottom bracket ensures that we do not have to listen to an annoying squeak while we pedal up for our next lap after work. A Fox Factory 34 fork with 140mm of crud-busting travel is paired with a Fox Float X Performance Elite out back for exceptional small-bump sensitivity and an efficient pedaling platform, while a pair of 29-inch Stan's Flow S1 wheels gives us the freedom and ability to roll up and over just about any feature we find. Whether we're looking to buy our first full-suspension trail bike or just adding a bike to the quiver, the Norco Fluid FS A1 Mountain Bike is ready to help us become the rider we dream of.
