PINKBIKE FIELD TRIP

NORCO FLUID HT 1

Loves all-day pedal fests.



Words by Sarah Moore, Photography by Tom Richards



We're halfway through the hardtail reviews in our Field Trip value bike series and up next is the Norco Fluid yHT 1, a hardtail that comes with a 120mm fork and retails for $1,499 USD. Norco says it's built around a "progressive aluminum frame design to create the ultimate singletrack adventure hardtail."

The sparkly black Fluid HT frame is available in 27.5" wheels in the smaller sizes and 29" wheels in the larger sizes, with medium-sized rides having the choice of either wheel size. The aluminum frame is pretty straightforward with internal cable routing, a threaded bottom bracket, and a Boost thru-axle rear end.
Norco Fluid HT 1

Fork travel: 120mm
Wheel size: 27.5" & 29"
Frame construction: aluminum
Head angle: 66.5 degrees
Chainstay length: 430mm
Reach: 440mm (medium)
Sizes: XS-S-M (27.5") & M-L-XL (29")
Weight: 31 lbs / 14.1 kg
Price: $1,499 USD
More info: www.norco.com

As for geometry, up front the Fluid has a 66.5-degree head angle and that's paired with a 74.5-degree seat angle. Reaches range from just 380mm on the XS all the way up to 500mm on the XL, with the medium-sized 29er we rode sitting at 440mm. All sizes, no matter what the wheel size, come with 430mm chainstays.

There are only two Fluid HT to choose from, with our $1,499 USD HT 1 being the fanciest option with its 120mm X-Fusion RC32 fork, a Shimano Deore drivetrain, Tektro HD-M275 Hydraulic brakes, and a TransX dropper post. If you’ve got a bit less to spend, the HT 2 uses the same frame kitted out with an SR Suntour fork and Deore 11-speed drivetrain. It goes for $1,199 USD and Norco has still managed to spec a dropper post at that price.

Climbing

They're all hardtails, how different can they be? Well, you'd be right that there isn't a whole lot of pedal bob on any of them on the climbs, but you would be surprised by how different they feel. On our test lap on the Sunshine Coast, the Fluid proved to be a capable cross-country hardtail on the climbs and its 120mm X-Fusion fork made it feel snappy and responsive. You're not in as aggressive a climbing position on the Fluid as you are on the BMC Two Stroke, but that actually makes it more comfortable for tackling a long day, without it feeling like you're sacrificing efficiency. The longer top tube on the Norco makes it feel less cramped than the Vitus, which comes in handy for putting down power on the climbs.

If faced with a long day in the saddle and 10,000 feet of climbing, the Fluid would be a great choice. There's a big 11-51 tooth spread on the cassette, which is key to making climbing enjoyable, especially if you're a newer rider. While the Maxxis Ardent tires don't provide much traction if you're tackling a climb in wet conditions, they are fast rolling and provide plenty of traction in dry conditions. Overall, the Fluid likes to be pedalled hard and excels on tricky, twisty uphill sections of trail.

Descending


The Fluid loves fast, smooth sections of trail and accelerates quickly when you pump into the terrain. It's responsive and speedy and much more aggressive than a traditional cross-country bike, with its dropper post and 120mm X-Fusion fork. If you're a precise rider, with lots of smooth, fast trails, the Fluid is going to be a really fun trail companion.

When you get into rougher sections, the Fluid feels quite nervous, and is no match for the Rocky Mountain Growler on those types on trails. It has 20mm less travel and a steeper head tube angle and you really do feel that when you're pointed down the trail. Basically, you're just closer to the edge when you're on the Fluid and you have to be a lot more precise with your lines. The Fluid isn't the kind of bike you're going to go smashing through things on, you'll want to choose the smoothest line you can.

One thing you'll also notice on the descents is that the brakes don't provide a lot of bite or power. There's also a 750mm wide bar, which may be too narrow for some riders. You're going to want to upgrade those brakes and likely choose a wider bar if you want to feel more confident on the descents.

 This bike looks very nice. I like the lines a lot. Tho, I find it annoying that most bike companies website only shows one size of a given bike. A lot of times, a medium frame looks great, but the xl doesn't look so great. This is very first world problemy, isn't it.

 As a fellow XL rider, I very much agree. Mediums and larges retain clean lines. XL's almost always look worse. I wish manufacturers would give us some images of all sizes..

 Agreed. I picked up a XL aluminum Devinci Troy this spring and the silhouette doesn't even look like the smaller sizes appearing in Devinci's photo's. There's a huge space between the rocker link and top tube you could fly a plane though, which if reduced would offer some much appreciated standover clearance. The added head tube length means the top and downtube meet the head separately making for an awkward look. Keeping them converged with gusset below would have looked much better and should add strength.

 I spent ages stalking instagram before buying mine for this very reason. A few retailers post good shots of the bikes they are sending out, sizes included. Particularly bike active shop. I was a lanky owner of a XL 26er hardtail with a towering 530mm seat tube, but now im the lanky owner of a super fine 525mm reach 29er... Long live long, low and slack!

 @thepwnstar39: haven't you heard? Ardent is universally horrific in all sizes and weather conditions. The articulated shoulder knobs fold and give no indication that one is approaching the limit of grip, especially on dry hardpack. It's even worse for lighter riders, who need bigger knobs to compensate for lower mass, in order to 'properly shred' the nature. It's a crime that Maxxis advertises this as a trail tire

 With a Forekaster and Ardent Race, there's no place for the old ardent in the Maxxis line up.

 Silly that this is "nervous at speed on rougher terrain". In comparison to a Growler, sure, but that bike is a weird geo outlier. You don't need a 64 HTA on a 120mm bike. 66.5 is great. This bike looks like a solid Honzo clone at a killer price point!
  • 6 0
 Definitely depends on where you're riding it. If it's steep, a sub 65deg HA really helps calm things down. Especially on an hard tail where there's going to be a 120mm fork causing the geo to dive in the front end only.
  • 17 2
 @mammal: if you're looking to ride steep stuff on a hardtail regularly, you're looking for a hardcore hardtail. Not a 120mm trail hardtail. They're different tools. A trail hardtail shouldn't be judged against a bike that has a HTA that is 1 degree steeper than a Doctahawk.
  • 7 9
 @mammal: was going to say the same thing. I think there are people riding in flatter areas that don't comprehend actual steep terrain.
  • 22 2
 @JDFF: Most people don't live in Squamish. Why are we comparing every hardtail to a geometry designed for Squamish?
  • 7 5
 @ajreed: Horses for courses, for sure. But 66.5 is steep for a hard tail these days, and even 1 deg slacker would go a long way in making it more of a do-it-all bike, which is exactly what an every level bike should be. 65.5 handling manners on flatter ground is still very good.
  • 2 1
 @mammal: I can't wait for the growler review, I'm trying to decide between that and a Megatower right now so that should help out with my decision.

 @OpeSorryAbootThat: The growler is a great bike at those price points. That said, Growler/Megatower is like apples to watermelons.
  • 3 4
 @mammal: I guess you're right, the growler is longer, slacker, lower, more aggressive in general.
  • 4 0
 @mammal: Perhaps Growler/Megatower are the only options in stock at the moment! About Head angle, my hardtail is 66, I like it, makes navigating some narrow and twisty bits of trails significantly easier than on my 64 degree hta full suspension (rest of the geo is very similar between them). People seem to forget that only a few years ago most of us were riding enduro bikes with 67-66 degree hta. And we were riding steep trails then too, not as comfortably, but still doable.

 Ardents and sub-par brakes probably contribute a lot to that nervousness
  • 26 0
 @VtVolk: thats a good point. I'll agree with that. The tektros are hot trash and ardents only check one box:

[x] is a tire
[ ] cornering traction
[ ] low rolling resistance
[ ] good braking traction
[ ] lightweight
[ ] durable casing

 @kcy4130: you are on the money. I have been riding a fuse with a 66 degree head angle all over the north shore for past year. It handles the steep gnarly stuff just fine. Actually feels really good descending. Only stuff i haven't ridden is stuff i wouldn't ride on any bike.
  • 2 1
 @JDFF: I don't understand what you're trying to contribute to this conversation.
  • 3 1
 @ajreed: I'm also suggesting that 65 HTA is actually a better HTA angle for an all around trailbike hardtail. Even on flatter trails. 66.5 hta is not "great" compared to 65.5 IMO for an "all around" hardtail. Additionally, I also believe that topography specific to regions really determines what people consider, flat, rolling or steep. 67 HTA for XC racing, 65 for all around, 63.5 to 64ish for rowdy descending (hardtails).
  • 5 1
 @kcy4130: Comparing dual suspension geo to a hard tail is not completely analogous at all. For capability on steeper or more aggressive terrain, a slacker HA is much more important to a hard tail, as it's head angle only gets steeper when suspension compresses. A full suspension sags at both ends, which helps to compensate that effect. The hard tail needs a slacker HA to preserve the geo when the going gets steep or rough.
  • 12 0
 @JDFF: 65HTA on trail hardtails is a very recent idea... I guess we'll see if it sticks. At some point we're going to hit a tipping point on modern geometry... where the progressive HTA/STA no longer balances well with wheelbase. That point has already been crossed for my local riding. I ride a 66 HTA Honzo now and its great for steeps and high speed, but sucks on tight low-speed sections and techy climbs in comparison to the 68 HTA that was progressive 5 years ago. Geometry is an equilibrium where nothing is free.

You're right that the perfect geo for each person depends on their local topography. The hardtail geo that I want for wide open riding in Socal is totally different than the hardtail geo I want for low speed tech in Marquette. We'll have to agree to disagree on what that exact balance point should be for a 120mm hardtail.

I'm just frustrated seeing every hardtail compared to a benchmark geo that is designed for a very specific topography that most riders don't choose a hardtail for.
  • 1 0
 Well, head angle and suspension travel are two very different things. I've been on some trails that are ridiculously steep, but no tech at all. A rigid bike with a 64HA would work just fine. Head angle for steep, suspension travel for tech. Mini enduro bikes are the next big thing. Everyone will be on Downcountry or MiniEnduro soon.
  • 2 2
 @mammal: I'd say the opposite, if I'm understating you correctly. Under hard braking on a steep slope, the front end of a hardtail dives and makes the head angle steeper, yes. On a full suspension the fork dives due to more weight on the front and the rear suspension extends (due to less weight) from sag, i.e. less sag, both these make the head angle become steeper. So in effect, a full suspension's hta in this situation will get steeper than a hardtail. I mean a rider obviously shifts rearward on a steep downward slope to try to keep the weight balanced on the wheels, and that will reduce the effect somewhat, but one can only move as far as arms/legs allow.
  • 2 0
 @mammal: But yes, in g outs or landings a hardtails hta will get steeper and a full suspension wouldn't. But I think that is more an argument that hardtails shouldn't have long travel forks.
  • 2 0
 @mammal: The truth is anyone who buys this bike probably won't notice a 1 degree slacker headtube angle.

 @ksilvey10 What a stupid thing to say. There is a lot more to consider than just height when considering bar width. I'm 5'10 but have an ape index of +3 and very wide shoulders. If I ride bars under 780mm, it puts huge strain on my wrists and shoulders. There's a whole science to bike fitting that you're forgetting based on the example of one pro rider.

 Narrow bars are great in Japan, very cool little places to get tanked on sake, but on the trail let's get those bars wiiiiiiide!
  • 2 1
 I will agree that there are many riders out there who are riding bars that are too wide, either because it’s the fashion (you’re not hardcore, brah, unless your bars are at least 820), or because they just don’t know any better (How wide are my bars? I don’t know. It’s what came with my bike). But there are a ton of factors that go into good bar width. I’m 5-11, but I’m not Richie Rude. Beyond out height, we are different physically in other aspects, and vastly different in ability.
  • 5 0
 Most people that are going to be buying this bike wont be the people that have enough knowledge or experience to confidently cut the bars down on their own and this bike is entry lever hard tail which will normally be used on xc/trail riding so the 750 bars seem perfect to me.

 We’ll have a roundtable video coming out soon but basically, the Fluid and the BMC Two Stroke are the best climbers, with the Norco feeling a bit more comfortable for long rides when compared to the BMC. While they’re the best climbers, they’re also the most nervous on the descents. The Canyon and the Vitus don’t feel as fast on the climbs, but are more composed on the descents.

 A friend has this bike, so I got to test it out on some mellow-ish trails. I agree that the fork is a highlight. I hadn't ever ridden an X-Fusion fork before so I wasn't sure what to expect, but it felt great. That 12 speed Deore is ridiculously good also.

 I actually own this exact 2021 Fluid HT model size L (470mm reach). I've recently upgraded the fork from 120mm with 51mm offset to a 130mm with 44mm offset which has slackened head and seat angles by 0.5 degrees. Once fork sagged there is no noticeable difference in handling. I found the brakes ok but took a very long time to bed in.
Mine weighs 13.98KG stock.
So... the good stuff: Great geometry, Deore M6000 10-51 12 speed, It pedals great, descends well and is a blast on singletrack. It doesn't mildly mind bumpy terrain. It has 2 bottle mounts in Size L. It cant fit 2.6 tyres... just. It will put a huge smile on your face. Its an absolute bargain compared to a Specialized fuse or Kona Honzo which share near identical geometry (once the fluid is fitted with a 130mm fork).
Now... the bad stuff: The internal routing design has no way of preventing endless cable rattles and the ports are too small to fit sound dampening around your cables. The supplied Ardent tyres are wire-bead non-tubeless tyres, yet the rims are tubeless compatible, so you need to include the price of 2 new tyres and some stans tape/valve in your costs.
Overall its a great bike for intermediate trail riders and easily upgradeable if needed.

 I own a 2018 HT1+ and it has been a good bike for the price. I live in Nova Scotia, so this bike was best option at the time in the price point. It’s my workhorse, use it for trail riding, biking with my two sons, bikepacking adventures, and have even ridden with some pretty fast enduro types (although I lag behind quite a bit). I threw a 140mm fork on the front (Suntour Aion 35) and it’s helped with riding at speed over the 120mm fork.

I wish I could have a set of fast rolling 29er wheels with it, but the 27.5+ has kept me riding all winter long as well. I ride 3.0 tires currently. My only gripe is I’ve gone through three stock freehub bodies, have my forth ordered now already, and have also gone through a non stick wheel and stripped the hub.

Bottom line: are there better options out there? Yup. But this bike fit the bill at the time and still continues to get me out on the trails and have a great time!
