"For a lot of fun flow trails with small drops and steeper sections and straightaways it's a lot of fun. It's very stable, but still easy enough to manoeuver around when you're using the suspension just to load it up and help change direction... It's fun! Weight disappears on flowing trails, [but it's] still very capable on steeper terrain."
- Mike Blewitt
The all-new Norco Fluid VLT A1 is an all-mountain electric mountain bike designed for bombing down trails and multiple shuttle runs. The sleek design and class-leading battery options of the Fluid VLT A1 means you have the opportunity to spec the bike to your desired requirements. With 140mm of front travel and 130mm of rear travel, as well as a revised linkage, the Fluid VLT offers an all-mountain trail experience in Norco's lightest electric mountain bike to date.
The first thing riders will notice is how fun the Fluid VLT is to ride! Norco has designed the Fluid VLT to have a low centre of gravity, hence the unique fork layout and shock position. With a long wheelbase and slack head angle, you'll find the Fluid VLT both stable, yet incredibly manoeuvrable which is an aspect most electric bike manufacturers struggle with! The Fluid VLT will obediently follow your instructions, carving its way through gnarly sections with ease and bombing down slopes. Although the Fluid VLT has less travel than its compatriots, the Range and Sight VLT models, the Fluid's custom-tuned RockShox Deluxe R more than makes up for this with an active and balanced ride. The result is a confidence-inspiring ride. With a stable platform for all terrains, the Fluid VLT really brings trails alive: control and speed will become second nature to riders and climbing will be a breeze thanks to its efficient design.
The Norco Fluid VLT is powered by Shimano's latest generation motor and battery system: the EP8. It's a serious piece of kit, with the motor re-orientated to ensure the battery, which is contained in the downtube, to easily be removed when swapping or charging off the bike. Speaking of batteries, the Norco Fluid VLT can accommodate 3 different and unique battery options: 540Wh, 720Wh or the extreme 900Wh capacity battery, giving you the option to change your battery depending on your riding style or needs. We've thrown in the 720Wh battery option to get you started, which provides heaps of range, and makes this one of the best-value E-MTBs available! The whisper-quiet Shimano EP8 motor rewards riders with instant power and torque on tap making climbs a breeze.
With the incredible tech on offer and the compliant alloy frame, Norco has specced the Fluid VLT A1 with Shimano Deore kit for a fantastic value offering that still gets the most out of the incredible EP8 motor. The Deore 12-speed cassette is optimised for climbing efficiently and still offers the mid-range gearing you need to really pump as you chase speed downhill. While 4 Piston Hydraulic Disc Brakes have been installed to give you the reassurance and confidence to remain in control regardless of your speed or terrain.
The Fluid VLT A1 is an incredible all-mountain trail bike. With the incredible Shimano EP8 motor installed, there's practically nothing that will get in your way! A slack head angle, long wheelbase and low centre of gravity all contribute to increasing stability without affecting the manoeuvrability you desire. Norco has really nailed the brief for a trail-oriented dual suspension mountain bike. The Norco Fluid VLT A1 Electric Mountain Bike is here to inspire confidence and to help you conquer the trails - leave the world behind; get out and ride!
The Fluid VLT features a slack head tube angle and long wheelbase to provide an incredibly stable platform. In combination with the custom-tuned rear shock and fork, you'll find the Fluid offers precise handling in all conditions.
New High Pivot Design
The pivot point is not fixed and moves as the suspension cycles, creating a rearward axle path while controlling its path through suspension travel to provide lower levels of anti-rise. This translates into a suspension set-up that carries momentum exceptionally in rough terrain, yet remains active under braking to maintain grip and control.
Long Travel Dropper Post
The Fluid VLT A1 features a short seat tube for maximum standover clearance, allowing size-specific, long-travel dropper posts to get seats completely out of the way in the rough stuff.
Geometry and suspension kinematics have been optimised for rider comfort and feedback, while the Ride Aligned Setup Guide enables riders to custom fit and tune their set-up for unmatched performance from the first ride. With Norco's Ride Aligned System, every ride will feel like a new experience.
Optimised Running Gear
The Fluid VLT A1 features e-certified components designed to withstand the additional weight involved with e-bikes. This included forks and rims that exceed in extreme conditions.
Shimano ep8 & Custom Batteries
The whisper-quiet Shimano EP8 offers unrivalled performance on the trails, with torque and power on tap to help you climb steep slopes with ease. In combination with Norco's exclusive Shimano batteries, you can pick and choose the battery to fit your style or bike park: 540Wh, 720Wh and 900Wh capacities.
