'E' IS FOR EXCITEMENT!
Why is Norco so excited about electric bicycles? Because we are driven by a genuine passion for cycling in all its forms, and e-bikes have the power - literally - to get more people riding.
'E' IS FOR EXPERTISE
We've been in the bike business for over 50 years, and in that time we've learned a thing or two about bike geometry, handling, fit, and comfort. We believe these qualities are every bit as important when you go electric, which is why we partnered with Bosch - the leading maker of e-bike systems - to develop bikes that deliver the best possible ride quality and performance. The Noco VLT is the result of our combined industry expertise - every detail has been considered, freeing you to enjoy the ride. For added peace of mind, every VLT is backed by a limited lifetime frame warranty* and the support of our extensive dealer network.
- Mid-motor placement centres the weight for the best possible balance and handling.
- Placement of the battery on the downtube of the frame improves handling by locating it near the bike’s centre of gravity.
- Bosch PowerPack 500/400 battery features the efficiency and long-lasting power of lithium-ion technology, removes easily for optional charging off the bike, and includes an ABUS lock to keep it secure.
- View your speed, distance, riding time and the current range on the Intuvia display. Easy and safe to use, with a separate control unit so you can change riding modes without removing your hands from the handlebars.

Mountain bikes are designed specifically for off road riding, with strong frames and components, knobby tyres and a large range of gears. While performing best off-road, mountain bikes are extremely versatile, and suitable for a variety of recreational and commuter purposes. Entry-level mountain bikes are more suited to bike paths, parks, and light use on unsealed surfaces. Progressing through the range, mountain bikes become more suited to longer rides, and rougher terrain, with a focus on durability and performance. A cheap mountain bike makes also makes a great all round commuting option. Mountain bikes can be either hardtail (front suspension only), or dual suspension (suspension in front and rear). Carbon fibre frames achieve a huge advance in performance, as the material is extremely strong, light, and stiff, achieving maximum power transfer from rider to bike.
Mountain bikes can be used for many types of riding, from riding around town to endurance off-road racing. Mountain bikes now come in 3 wheel sizes: 26 inch; 27.5 (also called 650B); and 29 inch. Generally speaking, the smaller 26 inch wheel size offers a more responsive, agile ride. The larger 29 inch wheel size has the advantage of reduced rolling resistance over rough Australian terrain, which provides easier clearance of obstacles, and general comfort over the trail. The bigger wheels also offer more tread connected with the surface, helping to increase traction. 27.5 offers the ultimate versatility - the agility and handling of traditional 26 inch wheels, with the reduced rolling resistance and improved traction and stability of a 29er.
Womens mountain bikes are designed specifically for female riders. Generally this involves a lower top tube and standover height, which makes it easier to dismount as well as plant your feet on the ground when extra balance is required. They also features womens specfiic saddles and braking and gear set ups more suited to smaller hands.
