2011 Norco Range 1: A week on the trails 2011 Norco Range 1: A week on the trails
For the 2010 model year, Norco axed the popular Six from its lineup of mountain bikes, and that decision made perfect sense when one considered the bikes that Norco had in its catalog at the time. The Six overlapped with the 2010 Fluid LT, which was meant to be used as a rider's all-day and all-mountain ride, and with the 2010 Shore, which was intended to cover a rider's park / shuttle / freeride needs.

For 2011, BC-based Norco didn't simply reintroduce the Six; instead its designers developed the 2011 Range, which is a bike that retains the climbing capabilities of the Fluid LT (which it replaces) while stepping it up a notch (or three) when the bike is pointed downhill. I recently picked up a demo 2011 Norco Range 1 to ride for a week, and I immediately made plans to ride a bunch of local favourites while traveling later in the week to sample some of the fantastic alpine singletrack that British Columbia has to offer.

You ever get caught up in the style of riding that you most participate in and forget that there is a lot more out there? DH and DJ and SS styles of riding are so fun to watch and participate in, but when it comes down to it a bike company has to be super versatile and cover all genres of cycling, not just MTB in order to survive in today’s market. Norco is one of those brands that stands tall and has a bike for everyone and they deliver it at more than reasonable prices to make it that much more enjoyable to the consumer.

The Vixa series is the Jaqueline of all trades when it comes to womens' mountain bikes. With 160mm of Norco's A.R.T. Advanced Ride Technology suspension and womens' specific frame geometry, the Vixa allows the ladies to take on big climbs with efficiency on the way up and attack the descent aggressively on the way down. Steep, technical singletrack descents, all mountain trails, enduro DH courses and all the climbing required to get there are all the reasons the Vixa is the only bike you'll see in womens' closets.

Based in the North Shore region of the world, where a lot of the aggressive, and abusive riding has been fathered, Norco has been doing research and development not only on the Shore terrain, but on the Shore as a bike that can tackle it all.

The Shore has gone through a number of phases, from a burly downhill bike designed for the most abusive, and technical trails this side of the water, to an All Mountain orientated "Shore" bike, designed for total domination on that terrain.

Norco has recently made some changes to the Shore, read here more...

2009 Norco Team DH 2009 Norco Team DH
In the past if you wanted a top spec’d DH race bike you had to go out of your way to build it up with competitive parts that would help you win races. Quite a few companies were making nice complete bikes, but no one was making a no holds barred, spec’d to the max “stock” bike. This meant that you would have to buy the bike that was closest to what you wanted or go buy the frame of your choice and build it up from there. The process of spec’ing your DH race bike is the most costly thing you can do when getting ready for the season. What if you could buy a whole bike that was fully race ready and no spec had been over looked? Just drop the cash, roll out and pin it!

This is where the new Norco Team DH comes into its own. Learn more about this WC DH Spec’d race machine inside…

Norco Shore Two 2009 - Full review Norco Shore Two 2009 - Full review
The Norco Shore series of freeride bikes are built to handle the punishing terrain of Vancouver's infamously technical North Shore, including meaty rock hucks, mind-puzzling stunts, and big boy jumps. These bikes are designed with abuse in mind and after several months of heavy usage, the hearty component spec shows little sign of fatigue. The Shore's compact size feels comfortable and balanced in the air and handles pretty well when the going gets fast. Although it's not claimed to be a great pedaller, some adjustment could get this bike up to being somewhat of a contender for the "one bike", depending largely on the needs of the Shore-style rider.

Norco’s 2008 Line Up Blends function and fashion into one hell of a Complete line up of bikes. Norco’s 2008 Line Up Blends function and fashion into one hell of a Complete line up of bikes.
To me Norco Bicycles have always been like Honda motorcycles in the sense that if you start out on a Norco as a child, you’re sold on the brand for life. Like all the little kids that get their first Honda Z50s back in the 80s and 90s and now have owned CR80s, 125s and are now rocking CRF250s. The same is said for those of us that got our first Mini Mountaineer as a kid, then maybe a Bigfoot to a Team Issue XC bike and now we are wanting to rip on a Team DH or a Faze 1 as adults. The line up of bikes at Norco allows you to grow as an individual and a rider and explore the style that is yours. For 2008 you’ll find 139 models of bikes, so that means there is something for everyone. Here’s a look at the company that wants to support you in what ever genre of cycling you persue.

A winter on the 2006 Norco 4xxxx and a brief look at the 2007 changes A winter on the 2006 Norco 4xxxx and a brief look at the 2007 changes
I had the chance to try out a 2006 Norco 4xxxx for a few months during the winter, getting a feel for it and riding it as hard as I could. There are not a lot of bikes out there that can do it all-DJ, Street, Slopestyle and trails. I wanted a Bike that I could do everything on, I thought it would be a fun challenge seeing as it's a race/trail bike so I wanted to see how it could handle on the trails, but I also wanted to see how it could handle against jump and slopestyle elements.

Norco Factory Team Rider, Fionn Griffiths Claims 1st World Cup 4X Victory! Norco Factory Team Rider, Fionn Griffiths Claims 1st World Cup 4X Victory!
The 2006 World Cup 4X final in Schladming, Austria was the scene of total elation for Norco racer, Fionn Griffiths, as she took her 1st place spot on the podium. “It was incredible to be on top of the World Cup podium again!”
After battling through the qualifiers, Fionn made the final in 4th position along side Joey Gough, Anneke Beerten, and Tara Llanes. When the gate dropped, Fionn found herself pinned behind Beerten and Llanes for much of the course. Then in a gutsy move, Fionn threw her Norco FourX into an aggressive two wheel drift through the final corner to pass her competitors and take the win.

2006 Norco Torrent in Review 2006 Norco Torrent in Review
The Torrent name has been kicking around the Norco line-up for longer than some of today’s young rippers have been riding, but don’t be fooled – this model isn’t some washed up old has-been! Over the last several years it has been in a constant state of evolution with the freeride world, and now more than ever this trusty steed is ready to take more abuse than riders can dish out. What more would you expect from a BC based bike company that has been in the biz for over four decades?

A weekend in Whistler with my 2005 Norco Shore A weekend in Whistler with my 2005 Norco Shore
Hey all you riders out there! My name is Eric Pauwels and I am 15 years old and my local shredding area is Chilliwack BC and anywhere else that I can catch a ride too. Through out the summer I’ve had the pleasure of riding the 2005 Norco Shore out here in Chilliwack B.C. on my local trails. As luck would have it, I even managed to get out to Whistler with my buddy Kyle for a trip. Here’s a little story on our trip and a lot of info on the sweet ride known as the Norco Shore.
