Norco's Fluid 7.2 is a rewarding ride that brings top end suspension tech to a value price. It carves, corners and delivers a ride that is fluid and smooth thanks to the nimble geometry, 120mm of plush A.R.T. rear suspension, and a 120mm RockShox fork. Up, down, and around, the fast yet nimble 27.5-inch wheels let you float over rough terrain yet snap out of corners. And you'll experience precision shifting with the Shimano 2x10 drivetrain, and powerful braking thanks to the Shimano hydraulic-disc brakes. This do-it-all ride also boasts reliable WTB rims, grippy WTB knobbies and a spread of Norco's durable aluminum components.
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.
