Video: Sam Blenkinsop & Henry Fitzgerald Sending on the New Norco Sight

DISCOVER THE SCIENCE OF SEND

To create the new Sight, our engineers drew on the inspiration we find in the mountains surrounding our Canadian headquarters, and let it drive innovation that can only come from re-thinking the science behind the design.

By digging deep into how a rider’s centre of gravity impacts the bike’s performance, we used anthropometric data, proprietary kinematic software and a new range of setup parameters to precisely match each individual rider to their bike. It is a whole new perspective on bike design we call, Ride Aligned™.

The results? The Sight delivers maximum front and rear wheel grip on climbs and descents, maintains momentum and cadence in technical situations, and allows the suspension to move freely without absorbing drivetrain energy. This creates an All-Mountain experience that feels dynamic under rider input and provides a confident, stable chassis when charging through rough terrain.

It’s a completely new take on All-Mountain that’ll blow away your expectations – and shatter the status quo.

It’s the Science of Send.

 I ride my 2014 sight like that, but only between warranties! Only on warranty #4. Maybe one day when I've depleted their 2014 stock of carbon frames.. they'll give me one of these new ones, they look great.

Remind me why they don't offer lifetime warranties anymore? PS I'm grandfathered in, your stuck with me now... muahaha

Awesome riding & video though!

 I warranty replaced a 2014 al frame in yellow and got a 2016 al in black. Dreams do come true.

 my 2014 Al still is running super strong. I even dented the BB (lbs pointed that out, I hadn't noticed) and it still runs bullet-proof. It has been a fantastic bike for me.

 @rrolly: To be fair, I haven't personally broken anything of them yet. But have encountered damn near every production issue/defect from that year it seems. Misaligned chain stay, cracked downtube, cracked ISCG tabs, cracked brake mounting tabs, cracked shock mounts.. Such a piss of, as its hands down the best riding/performing bike i've ever owned.

And if they do upgrade the frame to a new model someday, im equally f*cked.
New wheel spacing, trunnion mounted shocks, increased seat post diameter.

TBH Cant win this battle, just happy to have had some amazing rides on her while she lasted Wink

 Lotsa big words in there. Transition is going to have a heyday (indirectly) parodying this.
