The new Norco eMTB bikes have been launched! We won't see them in OZ till the end of 2021 but preorders are already open for those happy to place a deposit and lock one in. Limited numbers are arriving in the first shipment.
More details to come...
In the meantime check out this launch feature from Flow Mountain Bike. Product pictures courtesy of Flow.
The Norco Range VLT A2 is the entry-point, though still features a RockShox ZEB fork and Super Deluxe coil shock, along with the Shimano EP8 motor and your choice of 540, 720 and 900Wh batteries.Norco has just released three brand new ebikes: the Range VLT, Sight VLT and Fluid VLT, which have 170, 150 and 130mm of rear wheel travel, respectively. All three have 29" wheels and Shimano’s EP8 motor. What makes them all stand out is the battery, or batteries, which they share. There’s a choice of three sizes: 540, 720 or a huge 900Wh battery, the biggest you'll find inside any eMTB. These batteries are proprietary but Shimano-approved, and Norco says they have a higher energy-density than previous batteries thanks to larger 21700 cells. So the 720Wh battery is said to weigh the same as the 630Wh Shimano battery.
