The Norco Search XR C3 brings road bike efficiency and the versatility of a cyclo-cross bike to create an incredibly capable gravel bike. The Search XR C3 is built with a High Modulus Carbon frame for the perfect blend of lightweight comfort and durability when you take this bike off road. Riding on the gravel can be dirty work and that’s why Norco have built this bike with GIZMO internal cable routing so that your cables won’t be damaged by dirt and debris, as well as preventing rattling and simplifying the setup.

The XR C3 sets itself apart from the crowd with its gravel specific Shimano GRX groupset, offering the best performance you could ask for on the gravel. While the Shimano GRX Hydraulic Disc Brakes will give you incredible control on the bike regardless of conditions or surface. On top of that, the equipped WTB Resolute TCS 700x42c tubeles compatible tyres can handle the road with ease, but really shine when taken off the pavement and onto its true habitat on the gravel. With an open tread design and strong outer blocks giving you excellent stability and speed for an awesome riding experience.

The Norco Search XR C3 is a truly versatile bike that comes into its own off-road on the gravel. Norco is known for their off-road bikes and the Search XR C3 is a great example of highly practical and efficient design which offers a fun and exciting riding experience. With its gravel specific groupset and design, the Norco Search XR C3 is a value-packed gravel machine that is built for adventure and crushing your ride, whether it be a true gravel ride or a commute that takes a couple of bumps and dirt paths.


Disc Brakes: Deliver exceptional stopping power and modulation in any weather conditions, enabling riders to apply the exact amount of stopping power required.

Power Chassis: Oversized head tube junction, down tube, BB shell and chain stays increase rigidity where it matters most, creating an exceptionally stiff and efficient pedalling platform.

Gizmo Internal Cable Routing: Fully proprietary system prevents cable rattle at entry/exit points and within the frame; keeps water and debris outside the frame where it belongs.

Arc Endurance System: Stays, seat tube, seat post and fork are engineered to absorb and deflect fatiguing vibrations before they reach the rider’s body – ride faster, longer.
