Climb trails with ease and flow down descents with Norco's Fluid 7.1. With Norco's nimble geometry and plush A.R.T. rear suspension, this full featured trail bike takes whatever the trail's serving and comes back for seconds. Fox smooths the way with a 120mm 32 Float Evolution fork with an easy-to-use CTD damper and a Fox Float CTD shock busts the bumps with 120mm in the back. Plus, the Fluid has 30 smooth-shifting gears courtesy of Shimano, while total control is yours via the Shimano Deore disc brakes. Burly, yet fast-rolling 27.5-inch WTB rims wrapped with grippy Continental knobbies cruise over obstacles with ease and a spread of Norco's durable aluminum components finish out this great build.
A.R.T. stands for Advanced Ride Technology. Each frame using A.R.T. is refined for its intended purpose. In downhill applications, they increase the rearward axle path for a more controlled ride over gnarly, unpredictable terrain. For cross-country, efficiency and small bump compliance is increased for a faster, smoother ride. An optimization of the proven FSR linkage, A.R.T. delivers excellent pedaling efficiency, square-hit compliance, braking performance, along with a progressive leverage ratio for that wonderful bottomless feel.
