First Look: Norco's New Fluid Is For a Bit Of Everything

Jul 27, 2022 at 15:08
by Mike Levy  

If you've owned or ridden an ultra-efficient cross-country bike or raked out downhill sled, you already know that nothing beats a purpose-built machine where it's intended to be used. But if your riding intentions could best be described as "a bit of everything," you'd probably better served by a bike designed with, well, everything in mind.

And that's exactly how Norco is pitching their redesigned Fluid, an aluminum trail bike with 130mm of travel, a 140mm fork, and 29" wheels that sees a load of changes compared to the previous version.

Fluid Details
• Intended use: trail riding
• Travel: 140mm (front) 130mm (rear)
• Wheel size: 29"
• Frame material: aluminum
• Head angle: 65°
• Sizes: S, M, L, XL, XXL
• Weight: TBC
• MSRP: $2,699 - $4,449 USD
www.norco.com
Details on those below, but some important numbers first. The Fluid has always been an entry-ish to mid-priced bike, and that hasn't changed. The least expensive model is the $2,699 A4 and it tops out at $4,449 USD for the A1. All four use the same aluminum frame, and there are now five sizes - small to double-extra-large - that should have anyone between 5'1" and 6'7" tall covered.


What's New?

Norco has applied the Fluid moniker to a lot of different bikes over the years, but most of us probably think of the 2019 version when we hear the name. That bike was a popular choice, Norco says, but they also wanted to update the design for 2023 to make it more capable everywhere. That meant adding a bit more travel and some big geometry changes.


The new Fluid has 130mm of travel, 10mm more than the previous version, as well as updated kinematics.


The previous Fluid had a 130mm fork and 120mm of rear-wheel-travel, while the new version gets a 10mm bump on both ends. There's also been a slight change to the anti-squat numbers, and "increased leverage curve progression" that's said to be more supportive without needing to fill the air can with spacers. The A1 and A2 come with a Float X, while the A3 and A4 come with an inline shock from X-Fusion.

I've heard more than a few Norco owners grumble about troublesome pivot and shock hardware recently, so I made sure to ask if they've made any changes. Thankfully, the Fluid is held together by much better nuts and bolts that won't get stuck or break.




More and (presumably) better suspension never hurts, but geometry makes up a lot more of the 'what matters pie chart' than whether your bike has 120 or 130mm of travel. With the all-new Fluid frame, Norco says that they wanted to bring their Ride Aligned geometry, which was a big factor in the Optic and Sight's success, to a lower price point. That includes a 65-degree head angle, and reach numbers that start at 420mm for the small and grow by 30mm for each size up to a whopping 540mm for the double-extra-large that Norco added to the lineup.

I know some tall people who will be happy to read that, but just as important is what Norco is doing at the back of the bike. Each size gets a different rear-center length, with smalls starting at 425mm and growing by 5mm for each size up to 445mm for the long boi. They do this by moving the bottom bracket in the front triangle, not by using different length chainstays, and the effective seat angle also gets steeper as you go up in frame size.




Properly short seat tubes are on the menu as well, allowing for the small to run a 150mm dropper, the medium a 170mm, and the large to double-extra-large a 200mm. It's a good time to be a mountain biker when your seat post has way more travel than the bike it's on.

How does the new Fluid perform? This could be an important bike so I'd love to have a couple thousand too many words telling you all about it... but it arrived at PB HQ only a day before I flew out to shoot the next Field Test series. That means there won't be a review tomorrow, I promise, but stay tuned for one later this summer.

 Sweet! Looks like an alloy optic with a bit more travel, which everyone was asking for. Spec seem good too.

 That was my first thought, its an aluminum Optic, which is fantastic.

 Still a little redundant in that half of the Optic is aluminum anyway...

 @pb-kg: with front triangle being carbon and the rear is aluminium on the Optic I would classify this as being sufficiently different.

 @pb-kg: how much you want to bet a new Optic (likely imminent) is full carbon?

 @IMeasureStuff: TBF I did say a *little* redundant. I don't think the frame material alone really makes it all that different, but looking into it a little further, the different kinematics certainly do.

@onawalk: I owned an Optic for almost 2 years til selling it recently - maybe my favorite bike ever, certainly in its category. If it was a little lighter I might still have it, but I was essentially trying to have my cake and eat it too, treating it like a light short travel bike when it really just wanted to shred all the time. If they go full carbon and drop like a pound and a half off the frame weight somehow, I'll probably pick one back up and try to get it under 30#.

 @pb-kg: we live in a world of ever evolving products. Change for change sake is inevitable, as no one cares about the Optic any longer…
I have been looking for a medium frame for a while now, if my new bike ever shows up, I’m planning to part out the current ride, and build up an Element or Optic for some proper short travel shredding.

I’m almost more excited for that, than the new big bike

 Yeah, it's basically an alloy Optic - which is great news!
  • 2 0
 @onawalk: There's really something about that bike, especially with the first shock it debuted with. The tune on that SD DH and the kinematics of the frame worked really well together. The DPX a little less so. I'm sure the Float X on the newer frames is great though.
  • 1 0
 @pb-kg: I’ll keep that in mind when shopping for a frame, bit hard to be too choosey nowadays.
I’ve lusted after that Purple first year Optic from the first time I saw it, would be a perfect trail bike for around here, assuming you have a rowdier bike to go along with it.

 If you swap 275 wheels to this rig, I think you’re still at 332mm bb height, which would be alright based on travel, etc.
Stumpy EVO in low runs a 332mm bb height, and a Transition Scout is 331.

 @GlassGuy: 6'5 here and love 27.5 wheel bikes!!!
  • 1 1
 @GlassGuy: I agree. I have one 29” bike right now, my trail bike. At 6’5” I expected to love 29” wheels, but I find them clumsy on every bike I’ve tried. I have tried a fair few from the big brands and boutique brands, but I find them all the same. No real benefit for lots of negatives.

In fact I believe that the primary benefits of 29” on a mtb of “stability” and “rollover” are more to do with the extra mass and resulting angular momentum than the increased size. Oh and the increased trail on the forks.

My next shorter travel trail bike will be 27.5, unless I find a screaming deal somewhere. The Banshee spitfire is very appealing, and the price is much more palatable than a 5010.

 In the process of building a Scott Spark as a 27.5 play bike. Ride a 2020 Sight C2 and Rampage Team DJ as my other bikes. Just couldn't see the Optic being the play bike I wanted with the 29" wheels. 27.5 bikes are fun bikes.

 I have a 2019 FS1 with quite a few miles on it and it's held up. I maintain stuff pretty well and everything below I did myself. It's been crashed a few times, so it hasn't had a really easy life, but mostly mellow trails with a few jumps. Here's a quick long term review.

- After 1 season, swapped stock wheelset for DT 1700s. This made a huge difference. Feels like a different bike to be honest.
- Replaced Guide T organic pads with metallic after 1 season(?)
- Upgraded rear rotor to 180.
- Downsized from 2.6 Trailboss to a ever-changing Maxxis 2.5/2.4 combo.
- Two seasons on a 130mm Revelation before swapping for a 140mm OEM Pike RC (Charger 2.0 I think)
- Replaced NX chain after 2 seasons
- Tranzx dropper lasted 2.5 seasons before it got too wiggly. Servicing fixed it.
- SRAM NX shifter and mech work as good as the day I got it, even though I have had to replace 2 hangers due to crashes.
- Replaced shock hardware after 2.5 seasons. It don't know if I had to do this, it seems like it was clunky and I don't know if just taking everything apart, cleaning and re-torquing would have been enough.

The one complaint I have is the internal cable routing. Getting the dropper cable to stop rattling has been a pain.

Despite being an entry-level FS bike, if I had to buy a bike again the new version would definitely be at the top of my list.

 Impressive sturdiness. thanks for the useful intel

 Have the same bike but went a slightly different route with it:

- Extended fork travel to 150mm with c1 upgrade.
- Replaced rear shock with 190x51 (X-Fusion O2 RCX) bringing travel to around ~135mm.
- Offset bushing to lift rear to match front lift
- Replaced drivetrain with 11 speed SLX and XT brakes
- 190mm dropper
- Down to 2.4’s also

Didn’t really get along with the original rear shock, but absolutely love it setup this way.

Only issue I’ve had was a snappped pivot bolt (top chainstay).

 My 2020 FS1 has had persistent problem with the shock mount not being aligned. Norco replaced the swing arm and the shock mount but the problem has come back again. I think the whole alignment of the rear triangle must be off. I need to take it back to the shop and see what they can do again.

 A stout alloy trail bike with perfect geometry, RideAligned and decent components, starting at 2599€. And it's a Norco, so you know it's going to be absolutely dialed. In recent years they delivered hit after hit and I'd be very surprised if this wasn't another one.

This could easily be one of the most important releases of the year.
  • 12 3
 Actually surprised with the spec of the A1 version. At least with how things are nowadays. The wheels and hubs are weak, sure. But they'll work until the rims inevitably bend or break, and at which point, will be replaced anyway.

 Supply problems will continue for OEM and Aftermarket alike until 2024 most likely. In March last year Shimano told all their customers that the lead time for delivery of new components was 600 days. That meant if you ordered 10,000 Deore XT groups on that day, you wouldn't get your components until sometime around christmas 2022. This Norco Fluid is the 2023 model...meaning they don't need to be delivered to dealers until next year.

 410mm straight seat tube in size L. Long dropper post. It's exactly what people want. Great work Norco.
  • 5 0
 This is pretty exciting.

Another subtle change - head tubes are getting longer. I can't applaud that enough. More stack and more front centre for same reach. Good to see Norco is prioritising geometry over a miniscule weight saving.

It is probably too big for me but I would love to ride an XXL just to see what it's like! Hopefully can pick up a used one or a frame at some juncture.

Norco - I will join the chorus - please sell frames of these - looks like a sure fire success as people want the latest and greatest geometry, but don't want (and certainly don't need!) another complete bike. Solves potential supply chain issues for you and theoretically a lower overall carbon footprint for all (re-using old parts and at least not replacing new bits on bikes). I would guess that your profit per unit would be higher as well.

Also the privateer runs a trunnion shock - I am not sure, but for the sake of simplicity, prefer 'standard' shock fitments.

  • 5 5
 I can't upvote this enough. I also am 5' 10" and bikes never fit quite right. A medium feels a bit too small, but is more nimble. A large feels a bit too long, but is more stable. I think Trek is on the right path, making some models in what they call a "M/L" size. I could never understand how probably 30-40% of male riders are between 5' 9" and 5' 11", yet most companies don't make a frame size that fits them properly.

 @bedell99 couldn’t agree more. The industry seems content to let the largest number of their customers compensate with either a teeny tiny or too long stem.

 @shapethings: On my Devinci Spartan size large, I bought Deity bars with a little more rise and sweep. Then rolled them back a bit. Which made it fit decent.

 @Gristle: Well.... I'll agree with ya that riders over 6' 4" probably have the worst time finding a frame that fits properly. But I also think adding one additional size, that would fit the bulk of riders better, isn't a lot to ask. Like I mentioned before. I think Trek has the right idea with their "M/L".... Companies make XXL frames, and XS frames, for a much smaller percentage of riders. Something between M and L seems logical to me. But, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Cool
  • 5 0
 @Gristle:

Exactly, the sizes are in even increments. Honestly nothing to complain about here in terms of sizing.

That said, I feel like EVERYONE feels that they're between sizes, unless they're really really tall, or really really short. So I get the feeling. Personally, I'm 6'1" barefoot, and also feel like I'm precisely between L and XL on almost every bike out there.

There HAVE been bikes where the sizing was clearly not consistent, like the previous gen Nukeproof Mega. Where there was like a 15mm difference between Medium and Large, and like a 45mm difference between large and XL. But this is not one of those times.
  • 3 0
 @Gristle: so true. Average size riders have lots of options, if one brand isnt quite perfect I guarantee someone else offers what they are looking for. Meanwhile us tall folks (or super short folks I suppose) get 1 or 2 total options that might work. And whatever we find will have a laughable short seat tube because other people want to size up.
  • 2 0
 @Gristle: exactly, also how tight of sizing are they supposed to aim for? What about average female rider height, is it off between a small and medium by 1/2 size? Do we need 10mm size range across-the-board?

And while it may be a larger share of the market between 5'9" and 5'11" I still recall m/l frame sizes being hard to stock in my couple years of shop experience as most riders weren't picky enough about their fit to notice the difference

 Too heavy… they missed the opportunity to get a bike very light weight and efficient. Also missed the fox 3-position option for those who REALLY want it all. This is where some bike manufacturers are missing the point of this bike. Some set of engineers who believe they understand the current market segments, while missing the bigger picture for the application of the bike to the consumer. Another flop.. who wants a 27-30lb XC option with too long of a reach… no one, which is the bigger draw for this bike category, includes the option to drop in some gnarlier trails, not the primary application.

 If you're referring to the fork 3-position, I've used the Fit-4 with 3 position damper and also the grip2. Grip2, when set up properly is sensational. Once you get your high and low speed compression and high and low speed rebound set, you realise that you really only need one tune to do it all. from XC to downhill.

 Why no 27.5?

 So, is there a mullet option/setting?

 But can it be a mullet?
