Range C1 Mountain Bike
Why We Like The Norco Range C1 Mountain Bike
The Norco Range is engineered for enduro racing and perfect for gravity-fueled big mountain adventures too. The full carbon fiber frame construction delivers the perfect balance of stiffness and compliance so that we can really put the hammer down for the sprint across the finish without feeling like we spent a few rounds in the ring with the heavyweight champ. Thanks to the High Virtual Pivot suspension design, the Range is made to eat square edge hits for breakfast. The rear wheel moves upward and backwards as we bob and weave through technical terrain, delivering a smooth and stable ride. Paired with 170mm of travel front and rear, this bike begs us to point it down the steepest, gnarliest terrain we can find. A slack 63.5-degree head tube angle on a size medium provides stability at speed for smashing through rough terrain, while a steep, size-specific seat tube angle ensures we're not wasting any extra energy during stage transfers. While designing the Range, Norco's engineers determined that not only seat tube angles and chainstay lengths should be size specific, but the head tube angle too, so those of us who are on the shorter end can get our weight over the front tire effectively.
The top-of-the-line Norco Range C1 kit is race ready right out of the box. SRAM's lightweight X01 Eagle 12-speed drivetrain handles the shifting duties with absolute precision, while a pair of powerful 4-piston Code RSC brakes allow us to dial in our braking setup to perfectly suit our needs. A smartly spec'd Fox Factory DHX2 coil shock is paired with a torsionally stiff Fox Factory 38 fork delivering 170mm of travel so that we can stay locked into our line choice and leave our competition in the dust. A set of 29er We Are One Union Enduro carbon rims is laced up to our favorite Industry Nine Hydra hubs for instant engagement all over the mountain, and long OneUp dropper post lets us get our saddle completely out of the way so that we don't have any hangups on the descent.
*Due to a high demand in the global supply chain and bike industry since the start of the pandemic, material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated, and any adjustments will be of equal or better spec level.
