One of the new bikes from Norco for 2012 is the versatile 140mm-travel Sight. During an all-day ride, the Sight will smoothen out every tad of trail noise, thanks to its very flexible rear end. It is filled with cutting-edge technologies including the Advanced Ride Technology (ART) suspension platform.

Like the rest of the 2012 full-suspension range, the Sight features a one-piece forged aluminum bottom bracket area that integrates the ISCG tabs, lower pivot mount and main pivot clevis. The Sight has a Syntace 142×12 bolt-through rear end as well like on most models.

Very versatile, the 2012 Norco Sight is ideal for riders who want to do a little bit of everything. This includes marathon-length events, backcountry epics, and even local trails. Efficient and light, the Sight will not take excess energy away after hours in the saddle.

Designed for riders who are fond of long-distance endurance races, the 2012 Norco Revolver is one of the latest hot bikes on the market today. Aside from Shinobi, the Revolver has many other high-quality features as well. A trail-focused ride, the Revolver features 100mm of front and rear travel.

Its custom, hydroformed tubeset offers light weight and stiffness while maintaining solid and nice aesthetics. The seat tube of the frame’s tubing includes the link arm pivot, clevisless pivots at the chain and seat stays, and a considerably curved top tube that keeps standover at a practical height.

The 2012 Norco Revolver still uses Advanced Ride Technology (ART) to boost pedaling efficiency, braking performance, and square-edge bump compliance. ART also facilitates the achievement of a bottomless feeling suspension system. This is also for riders who enjoy peddling through rolling singletrack.
