Australian Mountain Bike - - Fast Track -

Norco have ex­panded their women’s moun­tain bike range, head­ing into 2018 with a solid line-up of op­tions. De­signed around uni­sex ge­om­e­try, the ranges start from very small sizes, come specced with women’s spe­cific con­tact points and size-scaled tub­ing. All of that guar­an­tees the same ride qual­ity, no mat­ter what the rider’s size might be.

The Op­tic A2 Women’s is a fast, light trail bike, with an al­loy frame and 110–120mm travel, Fox sus­pen­sion, and SRAM NX 11-speed driv­e­train. It’s avail­able in both 29” and 27.5” wheel sizes, de­pend­ing on the size of the bike (al­though the S is avail­able in both), for $3,799.

The Fluid FS3 Women’s is a 120mm travel, 27.5”, al­loy trail bike specced with qual­ity com­po­nents at an en­try price of $1,999. Mean­while, the Fluid FS1 plus is a 27.5” Boost, 120/130mm travel trail bike with an al­loy frame and solid Shi­mano SLX/ Rock­Shox fitout for $2,599.

The Sight is one of Norco’s most popular bikes and has been redesigned for 2018 with the most up-to-date all-moun­tain ge­om­e­try, so it’s great to see an ex­panded women’s range grac­ing our shores. The Sight A3 Women’s sports an al­loy frame with a trusty Rock­Shox/SRAM NX 11-speed spec, 27.5” wheels, and 140/150mm travel for $3,699. The Sight C3 of­fers a lighter car­bon frame, DVO/Fox sus­pen­sion and SRAM GX Ea­gle driv­e­train for $5,799.
