Norco Torrent S1You've been riding a while – and bikes are keeping up with your style, and where you ride, but how much of it is the bike, and how much if it is you? The only way to know for sure to go back to the basics – and there's nothing as basic as steel, and there nothing more basic than a hardtail. The Torrent uses Norco's holistic approach to fit and geometry to create the ultimate all-mountain hardtail experience. The 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 so you can confidently attack the rowdiest trails. To support riders through the lunacy that the Torrent's inspires, each bike is equipped with 4-piston disc brakes, shorter seat tubes, long-stroke dropper posts and aggressive knobby 29er tires. Steel is tough, compliant, and has been around for ages – so we really know how to make it as tough as we want it to be – which is great when you've fully committed to a burly line that you're fairly confident you can pull off.
