If you want to get back to the basics, the Torrent is the way to go — it’s an aggressive, high-speed chromoly hardtail that eats hype for dinner and lets you prove your mettle on the toughest trails.
Using Norco's holistic approach to fit and geometry, the Torrent's unique combination of our next generation of Gravity Tune, 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.
With so many free-thinking riders out there who're dedicated steel fans, we had to offer the Torrent as a frame kit, because those same free-thinking brains also have a very specific way they like their bikes to be built. With ample clearance for 29x2.5" tires and geometry based around a 150mm travel fork, the build possibilities are endless!
