Norco Bicycles Announces New Rampage Dirt Jumper

PRESS RELEASE: Norco Bicycles


Twenty years ago, when our Bike Development team saw what people were starting to do on their mountain bikes at the jump trails, we KNEW it was going to be something big.


bigquotesWe were in the middle of the Freeride boom - Slopestyle and pump tracks hadn’t been invented yet, dirt jump trails were only for BMX riders, and the only way we could make bikes tough enough was to steal ideas and parts from our Freeride, DH and BMX bikes.Jim Jamieson, Product Manager



Those first SuperCross bikes (as they were labelled at the time) put us at the front of a wave that wound up influencing many other aspects of riding, and inspired engineering and design throughout the rest of Norco’s mountain bike line over the years.

In the two decades since, however, we have learned a lot, purpose-built components, and technology had leaped forward, culminating in the totally-new Rampage - a series of three models available in three frame sizes that brings modern design, engineering and jump-specific spec together to push your riding to the next level.







The Rampage Team features a RockShox Pike 100mm fork, Maxxis DTH folding tires, Sealed Bearing Single Speed Hubset and Spank cockpit for the ultimate in pro-level performance. The SRAM Guide T rear brake with extra-long line is perfect for bar spins and perfect modulation.

The Rampage 1 has a Manitou Circus Comp 100mm fork, Maxxis DTH folding tires, Sealed Bearing Single Speed Hubset and Pivotal Stealth II seat and alloy post, each specially selected for peak performance and durability, and features a Tektro hydraulic rear brake for modulation and extra-long line for bar spins.

Every component on the Rampage 2, including the RST Dirt 100mm fork, Kenda K-Rad tires, Single Speed Hubset and one-piece alloy post has been selected to not burn up on re-entry, and not empty your chequing account. The Tektro mechanical disc brakes effectively scrub speed and minimize damage when a trick goes bad.







Every Rampage is built to be as light as possible with a highly engineered aluminum frame that’ll withstand whatever you throw at it and features specially selected parts that won’t let you down – because everybody knows, you only progress when you get right back up and try again, so your bike should, too.

 @Daddybear: The frame is the only common component, literally everything else is much higher quality on the higher priced builds... for instance a RockShox Pike is $885 vs. a RST Dirt at $230. If you can't tell where the price difference is then you should definitely just buy the cheapest option lol.

 Yikes, I bought my Canyon 360 stitched pro with similar level components for roughly $1450 usd. That shows the power of direct to consumer.

 @mtb-rider22: The stitched 360 pro is a freaking deal. And an awesome bike.

 I had a Norco 4x4 from the original Supercross series. It railed singletrack and jumped great. Sparkly red paint. I've owned dozens of bikes and it is one of the few I remember well and remember fondly. Speaking of memory, I woke up one day in hospital with no recollection of the car that didn't see me to learn my 4x4 was gone.

 I wouldn't trust this one, there's no mention of exactly what steel it is, and I've broken 2 Norco DJ frames in the past.

 Clearly says aluminum frame. Does not say the alloy however, although I’m sure the guys at Norco would be glad to let you know.

 @flowraw123: 3 year crash replacement warranty as well.
