The other day I gave you an introduction to the Norco Empire 5 and you all seemed pretty stoked on it, so today I bring you the entire DH / Park Series of bikes. Yep the Team DH, the Aline Park Edition, the Aline and the Atomik. These bikes are built for gravity's play ground! Be it shuttle runs in the back of the truck or loading up the chair lift at your local bike park to winning WC DH events, this is your series of machines to take on that task.

Check them out!

No cross country going on here, these bikes are pure bred to go down and to do it fast! The Team DH, the Aline Park Edition and the Aline have all received a full once over that has resulted in a completely new frame, while the Atomik is utilizing last year's Team DH frame set.

For 2009 you'll also find these models available in three sizes with a true large offering in the mix. Great for all you guys over 6'1" that used to have to make due. The new frames are lighter, with a really low center of gravity that should aid you in keep it fast in the corners and in the rough.

-rider focus: Pro level and grass roots racers to the shuttle and bike park crowd
-8"-9" of travel
-150x12mm rear drop out spacing
-1.5" head tubes

 damn!! they're nice. I wish I could buy one of these. The A-Line Is pretty expensive but I think it worth it's price, but the blue boxxer is soooooo nice!

 lol theres not one straight tube on that bike!

 Seems like copying specialized.. Smile
I didn't like the team dh, but the aline looked better

 got it wrong there mate, specialized are copying norco! norco's line last year seemed to suggest something like this would be out in '09

 You have to admit..it looks just... awful!

 actualy there is one straight tube on it! look at the old FSR they took off a 2003 bighit! wont be straight for long iv seen so manny people bend those things!

 ya so norco's thinking. these are pre-bent.

 hmm. i just cant pin the feeling i have about these wavy tubes...

 well first off, I would hope and pray that the head-TUBE and BB, are straight, and those seat and chain-stays apear to be straight to me...

 because the way a bike looks means how good or not good it is. None of you jokers have even ridden one of the new frames. change in mountain biking obviously isnt a good thing. I am not a fan of the design myself but i'll wait to ride one before i judge one.

 to all of those ding dong making comments without actually have ridden bike before do you really now what your talking about. color are personal taste. you don`t like it ok but you don;t need to trash the entire line.
maybe you like a pink bike; I don`t! still respect your choice. 7100$ will be the rice to be next year. your nice cover or Snata cruz will be be more expensive next year be ready for that. I read an acticle on the price of rubber, raw material and shipping cost going up for next year. they were talking about 10% to 25% increase for next year. so Start saving your dollar now; if you want yopu santa cruz. on top of that the guy talking about not improving in the last 10 years; what are you riding a Kona? I guess!

my 2 cents!!!

 thats so true, honestly if you want a top of the line bike thats probly gunna be around what your looking at.

 I've been riding an '08 shore for a few months now...for all of those who poo poo Norco, you havent ridden any of their bikes lately. They ride so sweet, corner and are fast as he##.

Ignorant comments don't make them right.

 Pretty cool how the Atomik uses last year's Team DH frame.
[Reply]
  • + 6
 Got to say they dont appeal to me one bit. The frame just looks horriable, personly i dont like the rear shocks i prefer the outer coil ones not the air ones for that kinda bike, mabey its just me though. But the blue boxers do look nice.

Good job on the report though tup

 im sure they ride nicely but they're downright ugly. that frame style for the empire was alright because it was a new bike but these frames are just rediculously retro and ugly. last years downhill bikes looked sick, they shouldve left em at that

 norco has f*cked up. there going to loose alot of people that used to ride norco. i didnt much mind them before. but look at there fully's now. they made there new frames look "cool" for teens to buy there bikes. once they realize what they bought its already to late. a pro that knows anything about there bikes will take one look at this years and 09s bikes and keep walking. norco has gone to hell.
[Reply]
  • + 6
 cant wait to see the shore and six, these look sweet, id prefer a 888 on the team dh tho, other than that i couldnt really fault it
[Reply]
  • + 4
 ohh here's a thought about the weight of these frames..

Isn't the shortest distance between 2 points a STRAIGHT LINE ??

Now, having said that wouldn't having all those bends and Annealed tubes require more metal to form the tube and Keep it's strength?? as it's not a straight line it is adding to the weight overall of the bike,, And also Very ugly ( which has been said )

  • + 0
 very good point!!!
[Reply]
  • + 3
 I don't think is ugly, is a lot of different, maybe in some months some of you will agree that's a nice bike when other brands start to desing weird frames with the technology. Is like some Duati motorcycles, when they are launched they look ugly, but after some months and different brands start to copy them, the Ducati looks the nicest, just wait. And about the ride, I have no one yet, but NORCO say a lot in good bikes and awesome performance. cheers!!!
[Reply]
  • + 4
 Wow.. just plain ugly.. Hideous in fact ( IMO )
what in the hell is with all the Rounded, bendy frames that are coming out for 09 ???

these are disgusting looking bikes that I couldnt see performing much better.
[Reply]
  • + 3
 cantthink of a diferent frame design or what cmon..... the new gravity/DH frames have almost the same design as the 2008 shore lin up...7000$$$ for a team DH... ill just go buy a shore and put a trple crown on it lol and save 2000$$
[Reply]
  • + 2
 I have never seen an uglier bike. What's with the bendy tubes? Is it an exercise in engineering to make them stand out? If it is it's failed because the new SX trail is just as bad!

It would simply seem to be a justification in the big price tag by adopting a newer 'different' style to the other brands. Form over function to the extreme. It's called marketing, nothing to do with progression or you the rider.

Buy last years model. It will ride the same, cost less and look a shit load better.
  • + 0
 with norco it's ALWAYS about marketing, that's why you see so many of them. they advertise the most.

 wow that shit is soooooooo sick i want one
[Reply]
  • + 2
 $7100.00 is really not that expensive once you see everyone else bike prices. Raw material costs, labor and inflation are all weighing in on the increased retail prices. BUT why is the GT full carbon Fury down hill cost less? That GT Fury is 10 times more techy and exotic that the Noodle Norco. C'on Norco, its just bent round tubes and some hydroforming... does not justify the expense.
[Reply]
  • + 2
 god, the 08 norco's were ugly and i was hoping they would have realized it and made there bikes better, but these ones are even uglier. i dont even want to see norco's hardtails in 09. i think the last good looking year for norco was 07
[Reply]
  • + 2
 looks a little strange... but supposed to have a better ride than previous models.... - build quality seems reasonable for Norco, but certainly no comparison to the rear links on Specialized's sleds - for example - the SX's rear links are genious - no DU bushing, shock terminates at the pivot, no slop and very low-pro pivot designs... yes, Norco's are functional, just not as ballin' as some... but hey, you may save some coin here.... so no complaints...
  • + 0
 yeah, it's so rad that if you need to replace your rear shock that you have no choice but to buy it through specialized, and whatever propritary brand they've decided to go with for that year, not to mention the joy of putting together FSR linkage with little bushings flying everywhere.....
[Reply]
  • + 5
 the team dh has great colors but i still dont't like norcos...
[Reply]
  • + 1
 It's pretty sad to se so many people saying the same thing. Only a few people here actually had something original to say and the rest of you just jumped on the band wagon and put no real thought into what you could say.

I love that frame design I have last years six and and last years DH. The six still puts a smile on my face every time I ride it. I have had the oppurtunity to ride Norco's dh bikes for the last 7 years now and in those years the geometry has been tweaked into a full wc race machine that weighs in @ 37.5 for 2009 out of the box with no mods. Last year Norco was praised for this new frame platform for the Six and Shore series bikes and now all of a sudden everyone hates it? Truth be told you are all entitled to your own opinions as am I but you really shouldn't critically judge someting you have never ridden. The DH spec is second to none and the cost of new molds for things like forged link arms and a new clevis at the rear pivot are not cheap to re-engineer every year added to the cost of raw materials going up as earlier noted leading to the high price and this will not only affect Norco's so whatever brand you plan on buying this year will cost you more so suck it up.

I rode the 2009 A-line Park in Whistler last week during the product launch and I honestly had a really hard time giving it back to the fine staff @ Norco who let me shred on 1. The new shock position puts the weight right where it needs to be in the frame and brought the center of gravity right into the sweet spot along with the low stand over provided by the curved hydroformed tubes the bike sailed from freight train to the glc drop effortlessly.

My 2 cents, quit bitching about what you don't like or know about and go to your local bike shop, have them set 1 up for you and roll it in the parking lot at least before you beak off.

 well said familyman. not only that the a-line performs like a dream but the new 2009 looks really cool. the design it's so futuristic and the lines inspire innovation and durability. really guys, don't make any bad comment before you ride one. it's a beautiful bike with great performance and maneuverability
  • - 1
 the new design DOES NOT look futuristic at all... Looks just like a 1999 kona stab which is 10 years old now....

 hey frdh, get some glasses and have a closer look to '99 kona stab, by comparison

 they are all nice bikes but i dont like the roco airs i find it recks them and i find the 08 park edition was the best bike and i still think it is better then the 09s but they still are all nice bikes i find. excepts the air shocks.

 yet another company going back to bent top and down tubes... has nobody got even a basic grasp of engeneering? style over strength and function
[Reply]
  • + 1
 I think some of you do link non-straight tubes with broken tubes. The fact that the tube aint straight doesn't mean they will break in the first drop. You should really get some physical structure lessons. Anyway, I think Norco bikes are really interesting! If in the next years I cannot find original IH parts to update my bike, then Norco is definitely one brand I'll take into consideration. But that's just my opinion and I respect you all. Peace out and nice rides xD
  • + 0
 i'm no engineer, but i have always found that once a metal tube is bent, it takes alot less force to bend it more (or break it).
[Reply]
  • + 1
 the age of swoop-
the swoopy tube complex that has hit our sport is actually functional to a degree.
As bike travel goes up, stand-over heights also go up... how do you fix it? -Change the form of your toptube.
Long travel single crowns require a kinked downtube at the head tube to clear the fork crown, then the downtube has to drop low enough to accomidate shocks and linkages and a new, lower toptube. See what I am getting at?
Now in Norco's case, looks as if they met the function of the formed tobes and kept on going and going and going, now they are in a dark and ugly place, how long will their fire last? Will it start raining?

 Why does the V-10 keep on coming into this conversation? The Team DH and the V-10 are completely different bikes for completely different riding styles. Why not compare the Boxxer WC to a SuperMonster. . . . . basically the same thing. . .


As for all the Kona Stab comments, has anyone actually looked at a 99 Stab lately???? Here is a link

www.ridemonkey.com/mountain-bike-photos/data/502/17236my_1999_kona_stab.JPG

I think not. . .. yes it has a curved downtube. . . but take a look at the headtube angle, linkage position or anything else and they have ZERO resemblance. I am stoked and can't wait to try one out. Less than 40lbs stock. You would spend a couple grand getting any other stock bike to that. . . .

 aline? What a contrived name. Yes, Aline is a fun trail, whoopdy Freakin DO! I would expect more from a Canadian company, seems like they are trying too hard. They might as well just call the bike "the Whistler" and be done with it. Oh yea, them bikes are ugly too

 another thing you have to admit.. with the new avid elixer.. look at the problems they had with the codes.. this is a whole new frame design for norco and brand new never used parts. that would equal an epic fail ftw.. i had the first codes when they came out and they had problems..7100 is greatly overpriced..

 flatland, i bet most of these people here have rode the 08 norcos (I rode the park edition in whistler as well) personally with out a doubt I would NEVER EVER buy a norco after such a terrible experience riding them in whistler for only a week. and second all these people arent going along and agreeing with everyone else that they are ugly (its just a fact that they are gross looking frames) I mean look at it. The frame looks like its been crashed into something like the 1999 kona stab... And last but not least, I bet at least half of the people that have commented here own a full custom rig that really takes some dough out of your pocket, I have a race link and it rides awesome and its a great looking frame and yes it costs more than this crappy looking team Dh... So its not that we cant afford it, its just that there are much better bikes out there, including the m6 yeti or something like a v10....

 Not really shure , about the new design , looking like they totally switched there frame idea;s and are using Kona or similar mounting points for the rear shock, older Konas. Colours are pretty horrid. And the price for the DH is crazy, you can build one heck of a bike for that much with better parts than that for shure. Im thinking an 07 or previous might be better some of the 08 were alright.
[Reply]

 They look like a pregnant horse to me... RM's gone the same way with the design.. i just don't like one bit of it Frown
If i'd like this this design i'd go for a RM = lower CG etc.
I guess the only thing i'd do with one is give it to a girl (they like things like that)
Cheers on the new stuff from Norco, i hope someone finds their dream-bike in that form.
