Geometry

The geometry of the new e-bike is based around that of the proven Sight platform. The head angle is 66° and the seat angle sits at 75°, which should make for a comfortable riding position. The 1218 mm wheelbase (Size L) and the 345 mm bottom bracket height should provide a stable and planted ride. The reach measures in at 470 mm and the stack at 617 mm. The chainstays are on the shorter side with a length of 440 mm.

Opinion @eMTB-News.de

The Norco Sight VLT looks like a top-class e-bike. The Canadian brand’s first e-bike is an impressive package, at least as far as looks go. The shapely carbon frame and fully integrated battery work supremely well.

We’re looking forward to our first test ride and will be reporting back soon.

What do you think of the new Norco Sight VLT?
