The Norco Torrent HT S2 is an aggressive modern hardtail with all the befits of a classic chromoly steel frame. The aggressive design comes from Norco's holistic approach to geometry, the chromoly frame uses next gen Gravity Tune with a slacker head tube angle, longer reach and steeper seat tube angle so that your weight is distributed towards the front of the bike in a way that gives you powerful pedalling with better traction and control while you descend. When talking about this bike the standout feature is clearly the double butted chromoly frame, big on compliance and durability for a truly unique ride. This design allows you to shred your local trails with the RockShox 35 Gold RL Fork with 150mm travel (44mm offset) at your disposal.
Progressive Design: The Torrent uses Norco's holistic approach to fit and geometry to create the ultimate all-mountain hardtail experience. The unique combination of our next generation of Gravity Tune, longer reach, slacker head tube angle and steep seat tube angle provides a more forward weight distribution within a longer wheelbase. This allows for more powerful pedalling, increased climbing traction and added grip and control when descending so you can confidently attack the rowdiest trails.
Built To Descend: To support riders through the lunacy that the Torrent's inspires, each bike is equipped with 4-piston disc brakes, shorter seat tubes, long-stroke dropper posts and aggressive knobby 29” tyres.
Frame Options: For 2021, we decided to offer the Torrent in both steel and highly engineered aluminium to give you some options for when you're fully committed to a burly line that you're fairly confident you can pull off. Steel has a reputation for being tough and compliant, and when it's engineered right, aluminium does, too.
