    Summary

    Expirience with the Norco Sight C1 MX

    Norco Sight C1 MX Review The Sight C1 MX is Greg Minnar's training bike on the enduro trails of South Africa. With 160 mm and the high pivot rear suspension design, the Canadian crew from Norco aim not only to please the ex DH World Champion. Anyone who has no concrete preferences when it comes to handling, can´t go wrong with the Norco Sight C1 MX. Because his handling is pleasantly balanced. The combination of high stack and short top tube makes the riding position pleasantly comfortable. If you love flying down steep, rocky and loamy trails, the Sight C1 MX doesn't really suit you. Other manufacturers build Enduro in the same price range that are more focused on descends. When viewing the 15,9 kg, its apparent: there are lighter Enduros in this price range. But one should not underestimate that wheels are extremely important for the riding experience on the trail. Norco knows this and installed higher quality than the competitors at the price of 8499 Euro . A nice warranty promises sustainability. With 5 years warranty Norco sets the bar high! Caution when selecting the size: the Carbon frame sizing runs small.
