The Norco Fluid FS 3 is an entry-level dual suspension mountain bike that brings a balanced yet capable design. This trail rig rolls with a durable alloy frame that is paired with a X-Fusion 02 Pro Rear Shock and X-Fusion RC32 Boost Air Fork with 130mm travel for an aggressively fun ride. The longer reach, slacker head tube angle and steep seat tube angle provides a more forward weight distribution within a longer wheelbase to tear up singletracks with powerful pedalling, grip and control while descending. You really can send it on the Fluid FS which rolls with Stan's Flow D 32H Rims and Goodyear Newton/Escape Tyres on your choice of a 27.5” or 29” wheel.
The 12-Speed SRAM SX Eagle Drivetrain is everything you need to ride at your best as the simple 1x setup has the range of gears you need and minimises maintenance. The Tektro Hydraulic Disc Brakes give you the braking power you need to control the slick trail machine. It also comes loaded with a TranzX Dropper Post so that you can get out of the saddle and really get after it. The Norco Fluid FS 3 is a dual-suspension Trail Bike that is lively and full of pop, that bike is flat out fun from the get go.
- Progressive Design: The Fluid HT uses Norco's holistic approach to fit and geometry to achieve its playful, capable singletrack performance. The unique combination of longer reach, slacker head tube angle and steep seat tube angle provides a more forward weight distribution within a longer wheelbase. This allows for more powerful pedaling, increased climbing traction and added grip and control when descending so you can confidently navigate the trail.
- Lightweight Alloy Frame: The premium X6 double-butted aluminum frameset features size scaled tubing to maintain the same stiffness and ride quality across all frame sizes. This allows every rider to enjoy the same responsive and playful trail riding experience. Thoughtful design details like internal cable routing and smooth welding technology allow for clean lines and a quiet, rattle-free ride.
- Thoughtful Part Selection: Thoughtful component selection at all price points brings performance to Fluid HT riders of all levels. Featuring dropper posts, reliable 1x drivetrains, and tubeless compatible 2.6" tires for maximum traction and control, the Fluid HT is ready for the trails you know and the ones you have yet to explore.
