2017 Norco FS+ A7.1, A7.2, Frameset, Plus Sized

8/30/2016 : sicklines

For 2017, Norco has a new 130mm bike called the Torrent FS+, their first 650b/27.5 Plus sized full suspension bike.  Pricing starts at $1399 for a frameset and completes at $2,499.  Details inside.

A brand new model for 2017, the Torrent FS+ is our first ever 650B Plus full suspension bike. Designed from the ground up with aggressive all-mountain geometry, 130mm A.R.T. suspension and trail-taming 2.8″ wide tires, the Torrent devours everything in its path. Conquer gnarly root sections, float over rock gardens and claw up steep, loose technical climbs with ease. Fun and aggressive with traction in spades, the Torrent FS takes all-mountain riding to a whole new level.
