Summary of the 2019 Norco Search XR Adventure Bike
The Norco Search XR is an adventure bike that is designed for the rider that is looking to push the limits of what to expect from a traditional road bike. All riding preferences are catered for, with Carbon and Steel frames both available, plus an alloy option later in the season.
Adventure riding can be dirty, and that is why the Search XR has the GIZMO internal cable routing system to keep out water and debris, prevent any rattling, and enable easy setup and maintenance. The new WTB Resolute TCS tyres will give you the speed and grip you need to get the most out of yourself while you’re adventuring off the beaten-track. They also make setting up tubeless a breeze.
The Search XR S features a steel frame and carbon fork for lightweight and durable performance. A SRAM groupset provides you with race-level performance and reliability. It is also equipped with Disc brakes for precision braking.
Disc brakes are ideal on gravel bikes and commuters as they are unaffected by weather conditions or how much dirt you get on your rims. They provide simple and effective stopping power whatever the road throws at you.
As we move up the range, the higher end Search XR models feature a carbon frame and carbon fork for lightweight and durable performance. This frame is offered with 3 different builds, one of which features Shimano’s latest Ultegra two by 11 groupset for maximum gear count, as well as clutch derailer for reliability when the going gets rough.
The Search XR was developed among a rugged Canadian landscape, and this shows in the quality and durability this bike offers. It is built to go fast and give you a kick start when you’re out adventuring. This bike is excellent value and bound to be hours of fun when you’re out adventuring, or a superb option for anyone looking for a versatile bike or seriously capable commuter.
