NORCO 2020 RANGE VLT C2
The Norco Range VLT C2 is an electric mountain bike with the versatility to dominate any terrain. Norco have engineered the Range VLT to give you a similar feel to the non-electric Range with all while maximising the power of the Shimano STePS drive system. The progressive geometry and suspension kinematics ensure that you can power around the trails with the Ranges ‘big mountain’ performance style. The Range VLT’s unique blend of longer reach, slacker head tube angle and seat tube angle distributes more weight to the front of the bike for powerful pedalling as well as better traction and control while descending. All of this is packed in the lightweight yet tough carbon frame which is optimised to maximise e-mountain bike performance.
The Shimano E8000 drive unit and 630wh in-tube battery do all the hard work so that you can enjoy the best aspects of mountain biking. Norco’s own power management system allows you to ride further than a typical electric mountain bike, while you can also add an optional 360wh range extender battery for bigger and better rides. You might be carrying a little bit of extra weight, but the VLT’s packed with 180mm travel in the front with a Fox 36 Performance Elite fork and 170mm rear coil-sprung suspension to tackle the toughest trails with smooth comfort. This awesome suspension setup is paired with 27.5” wheels for strength and stiffness, as well as aggressive Maxxis Assegai tyres. The spec on this bike is elite from top to bottom, finished off with a JD TransX dropper post and SRAM Code R 4 Piston Hydraulic Disc Brakes with 200mm rotors.
The Norco Range VLT Electric Mountain Bike offers big mountain style and all-round capability on any surface. It gives you an authentic and real mountain biking experience and feel, with the added benefits of being a smooth Shimano STePS electric mountain bike. This bike gives you everything you need to tear up the trails, now it’s up to you!
Progressive Design: 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.
Shimano STePS: 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.
Ride More & Longer: 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.
More Travel for More Mayhem: 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.
Tough 27.5" Wheels: 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 tyre casing because you, your Range VLT and the adventures you take on need a little extra sidewall support through the rough stuff.
