Norco has just released its latest e-MTB. With an internal battery, 29in wheels, 150mm frame travel and 160mm forks. Press release below:
Norco Bicycles is excited to announce their next generation of electric All-Mountain full suspension bike. The 2020 Sight VLT 29 is an exciting evolution to the bike that received praise from both riders and cycling media – including being named “2019 e-MTB of the Year”.
The Sight VLT 29 features Norco’s exclusive Ride AlignedTM design system, providing the same All-Mountain performance and handling as the 2020 Sight non-electric platform, with authoritative climbing, eager descending, and high-speed confidence that can only come from the complete integration of rider fit, frame geometry, suspension kinematics and precise bike setup.
By engineering the entire bike around a Shimano STEPS e-MTB drive unit with in-tube battery technology and an efficient power management system, e-MTB longevity and performance is brought to the next level. With the optional range extender battery (sold separately), you can add 50 to 70% more battery capacity to make All-Mountain rides even more epic.
The new Sight VLT 29’s refined design and geometry hold the perfect line through high-speed corners, send gaps with ease and provide all the pedal assistance you need to open the door to bigger adventures, bolder routes, and increased accessibility to rides that used to seem out of reach.
The carbon frame is strong and stiff in all the right places, and built as light as possible. The aluminum employs the same engineering principals to duplicate the performance and handling characteristics built into the carbon bike with minimal weight penalty.
The Sight VLT 29 is available in S, M, L and XL with 29” wheels in three carbon and two aluminum options.
This new Norco model is scheduled to arrive in February 2020 and will be available at Norco Dealers and through www.norco.com in partnership with a Norco Dealer.
