2021 Norco Storm 2 (M) in Blue/Black $949.95
The Norco Storm 2 is built to thrive on everything from bike paths to gravel paths and relaxed trails with its capable off-road design. The lightweight alloy frame uses Norco’s holistic approach to geometry, where longer reach, slacker head tube angle and steep seat tube angle puts more weight towards the front of the bike in a way that gives you efficient and powerful pedalling, with grip and control when you descend. To compliment this design the Storm has a Suntour XCM HLO DS Suspension Fork with 100mm travel to smooth the bumps when you hit the trails.
The 1×10 speed Shimano Deore drivetrain stands out for its simple efficiency that minimises maintenance and delivers smooth shifting for a crisp ride. The Tektro M275 Hydraulic Disc Brakes with 160mm rotors are standard for a bike in this price range, giving you reliable braking power in all conditions so that you can ride with confidence. All in all the Norco Storm 2 combines a modern design with a quality drivetrain, serviceable braking and suspension for a ride that does all of the basics well – just what you want out of an affordable hardtail.
