Makes all mountain riding fun again.

The Good:

Super responsive and playful. Still holds its line at speed. Great climber. Amazing components.

The Bad:

A tad stiff in the rocky chunder (but really that's to be expected for a 135mm travel bike).

Overall Review:

I love this bike. It's made my all around riding much more fun. The platform transfers pedal strokes to forward momentum extremely well. This makes the cross hill and uphill sections of your ride more fun. Yes, I've written "more fun" twice now.

The bike still absolutely rips on the downhill. The solid Fox 36 up front helps here but the rear suspension is really solid and supportive as well. It is not as 'plush' as my 160mm Enduro was but I'm not going back to that platform again because those bikes, as versatile as they are, are still a bit of a slog on steep uphills and long xcountry. The Norco Sight will still ride every technical descent I could do on my Enduro and makes getting to those descents a better experience.

The bike comes with 140mm up front and a 67 degree head angle. I

The bike comes with 140mm up front and a 67 degree head angle. I think Norco does that on purpose knowing you can easily add a spacer to up the travel to 150mm and change the head angle to 66.5. I'll definitely be doing this upgrade and I expect the bike to be even better when I do.
