The Fluid VLT integrates state of the art electric mountain bike technology seamlessly into its thoughtfully-designed aluminum frame, making it easy to ride, simple to operate, and just the bike you need to ride at the level you want, in the time that you have.
Norco’s evolved trail bike geometry creates a balanced riding position for both climbing and descending. The modern rider cockpit and steering characteristics increase confidence on the trails and are designed to maximize the added climbing punch provided by the Shimano STEPS drive unit and improved traction and handling performance of the large tires. To ensure all these upgrades don’t get you in over your head, we added the highest capacity batteries possible, so you get to say when your ride is done – not your battery life.
The Fluid VLT is designed to quench your thirst for adventure and make demanding rides a little more accessible – and it’ll also help get you out riding when life is the challenge, not the trail.
Its sleek, custom-formed aluminum frame features thru-axle dropouts, internal cable routing and a perfectly integrated battery within the downtube, creating a clean design and performance that will evolve with riders’ needs.
It rides just like a modern mountain bike, with a rider cockpit optimized for fast, efficient climbs and confident descents, ensuring the bike goes exactly where you want it to in technical terrain.
The Fluid VLT 2 features suspension forks from SR Suntour with Boost-spaced 15 mm thru-axles for increased stiffness and precision. We chose models that are rated for e-mountain bike use so can go wherever you need to go in comfort, confidence and control.
Norco spec’d the Fluid VLT with 27.5 x 2.6” tires to provide maximum grip, control and excellent handling performance, and we even made space for up to 2.8s. Combined with powerful 200mm hydraulic disc brakes, the Fluid VLT’s traction will give you the go you want and the stop you need.
Designed to withstand the extreme demands of e-mountain biking, the Shimano STePS E7000 drive unit will extend your ride and give you the push you need to get through the tough stuff. The protected seat tube charging port allows easy access and quick charging of the 500Wh battery, which we’ve protected from the elements so you can ride further in any conditions.
We created the Fluid VLT 2 with thoughtful frame features and high-performance, high-value components to complement its modern geometry. Its handling is designed to satisfy experienced riders, and give new riders room to evolve.
The SR Suntour XCM 34 E-MTB rated suspension fork offers 100mm of bump-eating travel, while matching the frame’s ample clearance for the 2.6” WTB Trail Boss tires. We also added Shimano hydraulic disc brakes with 200mm rotors, which help control the extra push provided by the Shimano STEPS E7000 drive unit and its 500Wh in-tube battery.
No matter what your situation, the boost provided by the Fluid VLT 2 will get you out more and take every ride to the next level.
