Based in BC's lower mainland, it's no surprise Norco
bikes are developed and tested on the North Shore. While Norco's VPS line of bikes are certainly no newcomers to the marketplace, that doesn't mean the familiar monocoque frame design is stale. Rather than reinvent the wheel, Norco was wise enough to license and refine the Specialized Horst Link four bar linkage. Over the years, the frame's geometry has been tweaked, pivot bushings have given way to sealed bearings and material has been strategically added and removed to achieve a balance of strength, durability and sensible weight.
