Tackle the whole mountain on Norco's Range Carbon 7.2. Its 160mm of plush, Fox-driven A.R.T. rear suspension dismantles technical downhills, while a 160mm Fox Float 34 up front devours the hits and keeps pinned on your line. Its lightweight carbon frame is seriously stiff for inspired cornering and wonderful responsiveness, while the 650B wheels increase traction and hold momentum like a 29er, yet are quick, playful and strong like 26-inch hoops. The rest of the spec lives up to the frame: wide Sun Ringlé Inferno rims, meaty Schwalbe Hans Dampf tires, a SRAM 2x10 drivetrain and powerful Avid disc brakes. Finishing touches like the wide Race Face bars and a short stem complete the enduro package.
A.R.T. stands for Advanced Ride Technology. Each frame using A.R.T. is refined for its intended purpose. In downhill applications, they increase the rearward axle path for a more controlled ride over gnarly, unpredictable terrain. For cross-country, efficiency and small bump compliance is increased for a faster, smoother ride. An optimization of the proven FSR linkage, A.R.T. delivers excellent pedaling efficiency, square-hit compliance, braking performance, along with a progressive leverage ratio for that wonderful bottomless feel.
