North Shore trails have always been synonymous with big, burly lines that chew bikes up and spit them out. These trails, which defined the Freeride generation 20 years ago, have inspired us to imagine a completely new Shore – purpose-built to thrive where other bikes struggle to survive.
No finish lines. No stopwatch. Just nailing every line.
North Vancouver’s legendary ladder bridges, moss-coated rock faced and slimy, rooty drops push the Shore into future of Freeride, so you know it has Big Mountain adventure and double-black diamond Bike Park sessions written all over it.
RIDE ALIGNED™: The Shore uses Norco’s Ride Aligned™ design system which matches each individual bike to the human who rides it, creating a customised Freeride platform that is both stable and balanced, allowing you to push harder. Using individual rider metrics, precise suspension kinematics, and proprietary app technology, you’ll align with your ride experience like never before.
IDLER PULLEY: By integrating an idler pulley into an elevated pivot Horst Link suspension design, a rearward axle path can be achieved with minimal pedal kickback, and the precision coil-specific suspension kinematics ensure grip and support to boost jumps and deep landings on rough trails.
DYNAMIC PEDALING: Suspension design and rider compartment are designed to get the bike moving quickly on run-ins and rollers. Maximised pedal efficiency gets you to the top faster and conserves energy for the descent you’ve planned your whole ride around.
CHOOSE YOUR POISON: The Shore is available in two distinct configurations, depending on the type of riding you love. 180mm rear travel combined with a 180mm single crown fork and a wide-range 12-speed drivetrain for big, burly trail rides in the wild, and 190mm rear travel paired with a 200mm dual crown fork with a 7-speed drivetrain for big days at the bike park.
DURABLE DESIGN, EASY MAINTENANCE: Frame design, hardware and component decisions have been made specifically to keep the Shore
on the trail and out of the shop - and when maintenace is necessary, it’s easy and quick.
