New: Shimano ebike Power for our most popular Leisure Bike
Norco Scene bikes have proved consistently popular with our Hawke's Bay customers so we were pretty excited when Norco announced the first ebike in this range, the Scene VLT, new for 2020.
Available in black or blue frame, this is a well thought-out, high-spec ebike with a centre-mounted Shimano drive unit and battery.
An ebike designed for fun
Norco's Scene VLT is the perfect bike for riding around town or along the cycle trails, and the electric motor gives you the confidence to tackle longer rides knowing you will always have the power to get home and up any hills.
Shimano STEPS Power
The Shimano STEPS E6100 electric power assist motor delivers a smooth, natural and quiet pedalling experience as it changes between modes.
The drive unit and 504Wh battery are positioned central and low on the frame, allowing the Scene VLT to maneuver like a regular bike.With subtle details like the E7000 computer and the E6100’s nearly silent operation, you’ll almost forget you’re on an electric bike.
Like all of the Scene bikes the VLT ebike is designed to be easy to mount and dismount with a nice low step-through designed for easy entry without the need to throw your leg over the back of the saddle!
Like all the Norco Scene range, the VLT has a comfortable saddle and upright posture.
Dropper Seat Post
Adjust your seat height while you ride with the push of a button on your handlebars. Previously only a feature seen on premium mountain bikes, it's great to see the convenience of a dropper seat post come as standard with the Scene VLT. Raise the height while climbing, lower it while descending, drop it down low if you have to stop at the traffic lights so you can put your feet down.
This is a very popular feature with our older riders and anyone carrying a large load e.g. in a child seat!
Large 27.5 Wheels - the modern standard
Unless you happen to be very very short, there is no reason to ride an old style 26" wheel any more. By increasing the wheel size to 27.5", the bike will roll further with the same amount of push from your legs. The bumps will be smoothed out somewhat due to the larger diameter of the wheel.
Norco uses a large volume, wider style tire for the Scene bikes which deliver a fantastic ride on our limestone pathways, especially if you hit a loose patch. It's still a relatively low profile tire which allows for plenty of speed. The larger volume tire allows for greater shock absorption without the need for the added weight of suspension forks.
Hydraulic Disk Brakes
Disk brakes give you better control over your speed in all weather conditions, making it easy to feel comfortable whether you need to make a sudden stop or just a cautious finger on the brake lever. Hydraulic disk brakes have superior response and are the premium level disk brake the same as you would find on many mountain bikes.
Large Range of Gears
Norco's Scene VLT has an extended range of gears with 9 gear speeds available with easy shifting, ideal for the steeper hill climbs while giving good range over flat and downhill terrain.
The Scene VLT has a good range of accessory mounting options on it's stiff frame, making it easy for us to attach a basket or mudguards, drink bottle holder, rear carrier, rear basket, child seat or panniers.
