The Range VLT 1 is a monster of an e-bike built to smash through tough, burly trails, careen down rock faces, and just go big.
Using Norco's holistic approach to fit, geometry and suspension kinematics, the Range VLT 1’s unique combination of long-reach, slack head tube angle and steep seat tube angle creates a more forward weight distribution within a longer wheelbase for the ultimate in big mountain, e-Enduro performance.
With a 180mm travel RockShox Lyric Ultimate fork up front and 170mm in back from a Super Deluxe Ultimate DH shock, the Range VLT 1 uses 200mm SRAM Code RSC 4-piston brakes to keep speed in check. The GX Eagle drivetrain and Shimano STEPS E8000 motor with 630Wh in-tube battery, and optional 360Wh range extender (sold separately), keep the good times rollin’.
If taking on tough, burly trails, navigating slippery rock faces, and generally going big is your thing, then this is the electric mountain bike you’ve been waiting for.
We’ve given the Range VLT the ultimate combination of Norco’s progressive handling and advanced long-travel suspension in a carbon e-MTB platform engineered to tackle the same trails as our non-electric Range – but the e-assist adds an extra helping of mayhem in the wild.
The fully-integrated, efficient Shimano STEPS drive system - and optional 360Wh range extender battery that adds up to 72% additional capacity - lets you cover more terrain quicker and have as much fun powering the Range VLT up climbs as you will sending-it off jumps and screaming down descents.
The Range VLT uses Norco's holistic approach to fit, geometry and suspension kinematics to achieve its big mountain 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 more powerful pedaling, increased climbing traction and added grip and control when descending.
Designed to withstand the demands of e-mountain biking, the best-in-class Shimano STEPS E8000 and E7000 drive units will extend your ride and give you the push you need to get through the tough stuff.
The Range VLT's 630Wh and 500Wh in-tube batteries provide more range than other e-MTBs thanks to Norco's unique power management system and the highly-efficient Shimano motor. By placing the smaller, lighter battery inside the downtube, we’re able to engineer the frame to be as light as possible without any compromises in strength and protect it from the elements. And, with the additional capacity of the optional 360Wh range extender battery, you'll ride further than you ever thought an e-mountain bike could.
The Range VLT's 180mm of front, and 170mm of rear coil-sprung suspension travel keeps your tires connected to the ground when you need more traction, will soak up the big hits on the roughest trails and be ready to take on the next obstacle.
We designed the Range VLT around 27.5" wheels to bring additional strength and stiffness to the table, and spec'd Maxxis's Double Down tire casing because you, your Range VLT and the adventures you take on need a little extra sidewall support through the rough stuff.
We design bikes that fit people; achieving a fit that makes you feel at one with your bike is our primary goal. To ensure the most comfortable fit for every body, we take proportions into account with our recommendations.
The size charts below provide recommended frame size based on the rider’s height. Where there is overlap, we include suggested sizing based on the rider’s proportions, as varying limb lengths can require different frame sizes for optimal fit.
