THE NEW 2020 SIGHT

SCIENCE OF SEND

Norco is introducing their much-anticipated 2020 Sight All-Mountain bike, featuring the Ride Aligned™design system and so much more.

When the Canadian company set out to re-design their most popular full suspension mountain bike, they wanted to make a significant change in what riders expected from All-Mountain, so their engineering department created an entirely new way to design a bike.

They call it Ride Aligned™, and the Sight is the ultimate application of this new design system that’s found throughout the 2020 Norco lineup, including the most recently released Optic short-travel trail bike.

Ride Aligned™ frame geometry places the rider’s center of gravity–both seated and standing–at an optimum position for ideal weight distribution between the wheels for maximum grip and control.

By evolving their Gravity Tune concept to consider the rider’s center of gravity, and considering vast amounts of anthropometric data to optimize each frame size, the engineers created a consistent weight distribution at the contact patch across the entire size range for riders of every build. By carefully selecting reach and seat tube angles along with precise steering geometry, they created the Sight’s distinct mix of crisp, confident handling and maximum grip.

Identifying the precise location of the center of gravity also allowed the engineers to optimize the new Sight’s suspension kinematics for every rider on their ideal frame, and created the Ride Aligned™ Bike Setup Guide app to make the most of every detail integrated into the Ride Aligned™ design.

The results? The Sight delivers maximum front and rear wheel grip on climbs and descents, maintains momentum and cadence in technical situations, and allows the suspension to move freely without absorbing drivetrain energy. This creates an All-Mountain experience that feels dynamic under rider input and provides a confident, stable chassis when charging through rough terrain.

The 2020 Sight is available in two complete carbon, three complete aluminum models, and as a frame kit in both materials. It’s also available in Norco’s Build Your Ride, Ride Your Build program for the ultimate custom All-Mountain experience.

Carbon frames feature a carbon front triangle and two-piece carbon seatstays for maximum tire clearance, with robust aluminum chainstays for added stiffness and suspension precision. The aluminum frames are engineered to offer a consistent ride quality throughout the entire Sight range.

Riders can choose either 27.5” or 29” wheel models in a complete size range –each featuring the very same suspension kinematics and ride characteristics with 150mm of rear and 160mm of front All-Mountain travel.

Norco Sight 2020

New for 2020 is the Sight Youth 27.5 for young riders seeking a rippin’ bike that offers all the Ride Aligned™ technology, handling and quality of the adult Sight, but is engineered with a more compliant aluminum frame, youth-tuned suspension components, and SDG Jr. touch points.

The 2020 Sight Aluminum is currently available at Norco dealers and through Norco.com in partnership with a Norco dealer. All carbon models are scheduled to arrive in November.

RIDER BENEFITS & GEO

2020 Norco Sight – Adult

RIDE ALIGNED™
The 2020 Sight uses Norco’s Ride Aligned™ design system which matches each individual bike to the human who rides it, creating a customized platform that is both stable and balanced, allowing the rider to push harder. Using individual rider metrics, precise suspension kinematics, and proprietary app technology, you’ll align with your ride experience like never before.

LONG-TRAVEL DROPPER POSTS
Every Sight features short seat tubes for maximum standover clearance, allowing for size-specific, long-travel dropper posts to get seats completely out of the way in the rough stuff.

PRECISION SUSPENSION
The Sight’s RockShox and Fox suspension components are mated to our precisely-engineered Ride Aligned™ kinematics to produce 150mm of travel in back and 160mm up front. Combined with the Ride Aligned™ Bike Setup Guide app, the Sight’s suspension is easy to dial-in for every rider.

THE POWER TO STOP
We equipped every Sight with 4-piston hydraulic disc brakes and 200/180mm rotors to give you the speed-control you need to hit the perfect line on every ride and pull you back when the ruckus gets a little out of hand.

DETAILS MATTER
Every Sight, in every size can fit a full-sized water bottle. Every frame size is available in both 27.5” and 29”. There’s enough space for 2.6” tires, but we’ve equipped 2.4’s and 2.5’s with tough, supportive sidewalls that are lighter than DH, but tougher than Trail because we know details matter. All of them.

ADDED FRAME FEATURES
The Sight features custom frame protection and a new shuttle guard to protect it from long, rowdy days on the trail and when it’s hanging off the back of your buddy’s pickup. The under-top tube mounts provide easy mounting for some of the most popular aftermarket storage bags or additional water.

METRICS ARE THE METHOD
To customize your Ride Aligned™ experience, we tie every aspect of the system together with the Ride Aligned™ Bike Setup Guide.

The app-based assistant helps tune your precise fit and optimize your suspension setup based on your unique body makeup, the way you ride, and the types of trails you expect to encounter. It’s simple to use, but incredibly precise, making the most of every detail we’ve engineered into the Ride Aligned™ design.

YOUTH-TUNED SUSPENSION
We added a reduced offset RockShox Pike 150mm suspension fork and RockShox Deluxe R Select rear shock with a lighter damping tune providing 140mm of travel because younger riders use lighter springs, which require less damping.

LIGHT-ACTION DROPPER POST
To ride right, you’ve gotta have a dropper – but if you’re under 90 pounds, normal droppers are too hard to compress. The Sight Youth 27.5’s 120mm light-action TranzX dropper post is easy to compress for young riders for quick saddle adjustments.

SDG JR. CONTACT POINTS
SDG’s size-appropriate saddle, pedals and grips provide the same quality and performance as the adult sized ones, but won’t fit Junior like they’re built for giants.

SRAM SX EAGLE DRIVETRAIN
One-by drivetrains are pretty much the only way to go these days, and the SX Eagle offers top-drawer performance and features at a price that won’t break the bank.
