Range C3 Mountain Bike
Why We Like The Norco Range C3 Mountain Bike
The Norco Range is built for big mountain sends and precision tracking on the toughest enduro courses. The full carbon fiber frame strikes the perfect balance between stiffness and compliance so that we have the freedom to open up the throttle no matter where we're at on the mountain. Thanks to the rearward axle path of the Virtual High Pivot suspension design, we can bob and weave through technical terrain knowing that we'll easily clear square edged hits without a drop in speed, while the 170mm of travel, front and rear, gives us the confidence to hit big drops and point it through massive rock gardens. In a world where fractions of a second count, Norco's engineers didn't over look fractions of a degree or millimeter size adjustments. The range gets not only size-specific chainstay lengths and seat tube angles but also a slack headtube angle (63.5-degrees on a size large) that steepens by a quarter of a degree as sizes get smaller so that even the smallest rider can effectively get their weight over the front wheel.
This Norco Range C3 kit is built to handle the day-in, day-out abuse of enduro racing and big mountain riding. A combination of Shimano Deore and SLX 12-speed components are combined to create a smooth shifting, bombproof drivetrain, while a pair of 4-piston Shimano brakes deliver plenty of stopping power for picking apart technical lines. A torsionally stiff RockShox ZEB up front is paired with a Fox DHX2 Factory coil shock out back to help us ride out massive bombholes and deliver a bottomless feel as we fly down the mountain, leaving our competition in the dust. Built to tackle the toughest trails with speed and precision, the Norco Range C3 Mountain Bike is ready to take our riding to the next level.
*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.
