Norco's hugely successful Sight Killer B is going carbon for 2014! It features the same dialed geometry as its aluminum predecessor, but with the added strength, stiffness and weight savings of carbon. Many of you may have seen Jill Kintner aboard a prototype version of this throughout this race season.
Along with its big brother, the Range, the Sight moved to 650B in 2013. It has 140mm travel via ART suspension, a 67.5-degree head angle, internal cable routing, Reverb Stealth routing, optional 1x11 gearing, the Syntace X12 axle system, 360-Lock hardware, a one-piece Hollowform link, and 419 to 435mm chainstays depending on the size thanks to their Gravity Tune design. The front and rear end grow proportionally with each size. This is said to give the bike a similar feel across the entire size range.
MSRP on the Sight Killer B carbon will range from $3,600 to $7,000, depending on the model, with weight starting at just 25-pounds. They'll be available in Spring, 2014. We'll bring you more photos of the new ride next week as Norco descends on the Crankworx festival. Be sure to stop by their booth if you're up there!
