Brand new release for the 2020 Season. Norco finally releases the electric powerhouse version of the well loved Range model.
THE NORCO RANGE VLT IS A MONSTER OF AN E-BIKE – THERE’S NO DENYING IT.
If taking on tough, burly trails, navigating slippery rock faces, and generally going big is your thing, then this is the electric mountain bike you’ve been waiting for.
We’ve given the Range VLT the ultimate combination of Norco’s progressive handling and advanced long-travel suspension in a carbon e-MTB platform engineered to tackle the same trails as our non-electric Range – but the e-assist adds an extra helping of mayhem in the wild.
The fully-integrated, efficient Shimano STEPS drive system - and optional 360Wh range extender battery that adds up to 72% additional capacity - lets you cover more terrain quicker and have as much fun powering the Range VLT up climbs as you will sending-it off jumps and screaming down descents.
The Range VLT uses Norco's holistic approach to fit, geometry and suspension kinematics to achieve its big mountain performance. The unique combination of longer reach, slacker head tube angle and steep seat tube angle provides a more forward weight distribution within a longer wheelbase. This allows more powerful pedaling, increased climbing traction and added grip and control when descending.
SHIMANO STEPS - ALL THE POWER YOU NEED
Designed to withstand the demands of e-mountain biking, the best-in-class Shimano STEPS E8000 and E7000 drive units will extend your ride and give you the push you need to get through the tough stuff.
RIDE MORE, RIDE LONGER
The Range VLT's 630Wh and 500Wh in-tube batteries provide more range than other e-MTBs thanks to Norco's unique power management system and the highly-efficient Shimano motor. By placing the smaller, lighter battery inside the downtube, we’re able to engineer the frame to be as light as possible without any compromises in strength and protect it from the elements. And, with the additional capacity of the optional 360Wh range extender battery, you'll ride further than you ever thought an e-mountain bike could.
MO' TRAVEL = MO' MAYHEM
The Range VLT's 180mm of front, and 170mm of rear coil-sprung suspension travel keeps your tires connected to the ground when you need more traction, will soak up the big hits on the roughest trails and be ready to take on the next obstacle.
TOUGH 27.5" WHEELS
We designed the Range VLT around 27.5" wheels to bring additional strength and stiffness to the table, and spec'd Maxxis's Double Down tire casing because you, your Range VLT and the adventures you take on need a little extra sidewall support through the rough stuff.
