When you’revoted top e-MTBof the Year*,it’s tempting to sitback and baskin the accolades – but thefirst generation SightVLT’s praise wasn’t enough to distract us from our constant need to improve.
For 2020, we lookedat what made the originalthe e-MTB of the Year with editors and riders, and combined it with everything we’ve discovered since. By combining our proprietary Ride Aligned™ design system with state-of-the-art e-MTB technology, range extender battery compatibility and e-optimized 29-inchwheels, the SightVLT 29 is the ultimate All-Mountain electric mountain bike.
Its refineddesign and geometryhold the perfectline through high-speed corners, send gapswith ease and provide all the pedal assistance you need to open the door to bigger adventures, bolder routes, and increased accessibility to rides thatused to seem out ofreach.
This also represents a first at Norco: our first electricfull suspension mountainbike that’s available in both carbonand aluminum models.
The carbonframe is strongand stiff in all the right places,and built as light as possible. The aluminum employsthe same engineering principals to duplicate the performance and handling characteristics built into the carbon bike with minimalweight penalty – bringing the electric All-Mountain 29er experience to more riders.
The Sight VLT 29 also features Norco’s exclusive Ride Aligned™ design system, providing the same All-Mountain performance and handling as our brand-new Sight non-electric platform, with authoritative climbing, eager descending, and high-speed confidence that can only come from the complete integration of rider fit, frame geometry,suspension kinematics and precise, app-assisted bike setup.
By buildingthe entire systemaround a ShimanoSTEPS e-MTB drive unit with our proprietary in-tube battery technology and efficient power management system, e-MTB performance is brought to the nextlevel. With theoptional range extender battery (sold separately), you can add50 to 70% more batterycapacity to makeyour All-Mountain rideseven more epic.
