Hot on the heels of the new Bosch Performance Line SX drive system, the Norco Fluid VLT comes in as light as 38lbs (17.24kg) by pairing it with a slim, full carbon frame.

That model is spec’d for minimum weight and runs 130mm rear travel with a 140mm fork, but three additional builds bump that to 140mm rear/150mm front and get a full carbon frame at the top, and two carbon/alloy blends at lower price points.

Full specs and details are as slim as the frame for now, it doesn’t launch until Spring 2024, but here’s what we do know…

It uses their Ride Aligned size-specific geometry, with rear center and seat tube angles changing along with the frame size to keep the rider sitting in the most balanced position.

It also uses Nroco’s popular and effective take on a Horst Link suspension, built around a 27.5″ rear wheel and 29er front. It’s a dedicated mixed wheel design, there’s no room to fit a 29er in the back.

Inside the downtube is Bosch’s slim line 400Wh battery, and it’ll accept the 200Wh range extender for longer rides. 55Nm of assist helps you get up the longest climbs without taking all the “fun” of climbing away.

Their custom Norco x Bosch Flow app lets you tweak the system’s output to maximize power or range, track your rides, see maintenance schedules, and more.
