Norco's hugely successful Sight Killer B is going carbon for 2014!
The Sight uses "Gravity Tune," which is a unique way of sizing frames. The front and rear end grow proportionally with each size.
It's a pure 650B affair. 419 to 435mm chainstays, size dependent.
Optional 1x11 gearing on some models.
The bike's 140mm of rear travel is actuated by a one-piece Holloform link, and has a progressive leverage curve.
It features the same dialed geometry as its aluminum predecessor, but with the added strength, stiffness and weight savings of carbon.
The internal cable and Reverb Stealth routing is dialed.
360-Lock hardware aims to improve bearing life and wear big time.
New for 2014, all Sight and Range models will have internal chainstay routing. The cables now also follow the downtube to avoid being bent when the bike is compressed.
Norco went with the Syntace X12 system on the rear end, which couples a 142x12mm rear axle with a unique derailleur hanger. The Sight also has brake post mounts.
There's a spare hanger bolt located on the frame near the BB area if it's ever needed.
A 67.5-degree head angle should do the trick for most riders.
MSRP on the Sight Killer B carbon will range from $3,800 to $7,000, depending on the model, with weight starting at just 25-pounds.
The Sight Carbon will be available in Spring, 2014. Keep your eyes peeled!
