Hardtail Mountain Bike with Mass Market Appeal
**At this price they are selling out fast so get your order in quick! - Hilton**
Norco's 2018 Storm is an easy riding, solid, slightly above entry-level hardtail mountain bike designed for recreational cross country rides - also ideal for the Hawke's Bay Trails and adventuring with friends.
This is our pick for most of the folks who come in wanting a reasonable bike at a reasonable price to get around on. It's a good quality product that can be relied on for years to come and will take you most of the places you want to go, without breaking the bank.
The Norco Storm 2 is the mid-range hardtail in the Storm series. It is superseded by the higher spec Storm 1. All of the Norco Storm range are available in a men's or women's frame, with the same spec components.
9 x 3 Speed Gears
The Storm 2 is a 27 speed hardtail; 9 cogs in the back cassette and 3 on the front, with Shimano gear shifters that deliver smooth crisp shifting.
The Tektro Hydraulic disk brakes are reliable in all weather conditions and easy on the hands for those compulsive brakers out there!
Travel in Comfort
Having 100mm travel (suspension) in the front forks means a smoother ride over rough terrain - it's easier on your wrists, elbows, shoulders and neck. (Bikes without any travel, known as fully rigid bikes, require using your body as a shock absorber which can get tiring after a while). Give us suspension any day.
The Norco Storm 2 is available in two wheel sizes in this new 2018 model: our favourite the 27.5 and the supersized 29er.
The 27.5 is currently available in frame sizes from xxs to Medium. The 29er is currently available from Medium to XL.
Also Norco have brought it out in blue as well as black - NOTE the blue has been hugely popular and some sizes are going to sell out quickly. Give us a call on 06 877 8477 to check availability of your frame size.
