The Norco Search XR S2 is an adventure seeker that blurs the lines between mountain and road, pushing the limits of what you’d expect from a drop bar bike.
The light, Reynolds air-hardened, back-tempered chromoly steel frame and mid-modulus carbon fork offer agile stability, efficient pedalling, and comfortable vertical compliance and classic style. With generous tire clearance (45mm/42mm with fenders), rack, fender and bottle mounts, and a comfortably quick rider compartment, the Search XR S2 allows you to explore singletrack trails, tackle a gravel loop, or head out for an extended bike-packing excursion.
This is the first bike we’ve seen with Shimano’s new GRX groupset – melding the best from road and MTB into an amazing solution for any conditions. A few different models are available, but we think this steel framed beast is the pick of the litter.
With Shimano thru-axle hubs, WTB ST Light i23 TCS 2.0 tubeless-ready rims and ultra-wide range Shimano GRX 20 speed gravel group, the Search XR S2 is ready to take on whatever adventure you’re up for. Its external cable routing makes for quick, easy service when the opportunity arises.
