Women's Cross Country Mountain Bike
**At this price they are selling out fast so get your order in quick! - Hilton**
Norco's 2018 Storm 2 is a women's alloy hardtail mountain bike with hydraulic disk brakes and 100mm travel up front.
It's the ideal bike for women who want the freedom to ride a wide variety of trails from limestone coffee rides with friends, to more technical singletrack climbs and adventures.
The spec of Norco's 2018 Storm 2 women's specific XC bike is the same as the guys model (slightly above entry-level quality) - only the frame has been adjusted with an elegantly curved top tube that shows off the tapering nicely. The lower top tube allows for easier mounting and dismounting, so there is no need to throw your leg over the back of the bike.
The Norco Storm range comes in two wheel sizes, our favourite the 27.5 which is now considered the new normal, and the oversized 29er.
The Norco Storm 2 is the mid-range hardtail in the Storm series. It is superseded by the higher spec Norco Storm 1 which is also available in a womens model.
Due to popularity some of the frame sizes are about to sell out so please give us a call on 06 877 8477 to check your size is available before ordering online!
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 so you can control your speed and have confidence riding in traffic.
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 Small. The 29er is currently available only in Medium for the women's model.
Note the product images used are of the 29 wheel size model.
