There’s a reason we call them the great outdoors. There is no limit to the possibilities out here. If you can still hear traffic sounds, keep on pedalling until they fade away. With balanced geometries, playful ride handling and no-compromise part selections, Norco's Cross-country bikes are the perfect choice for everyone getting into mountain biking and looking for new trails to explore.
The Storm 2 picks up where road, gravel, and hybrid bikes can't go – fatter tires, off-road-oriented progressive design, and features that'll give you the chance to explore what mountain biking is all about.
With a comfortable, capable off-road design, the Storm 2’s X6 aluminum frame is off-road worthy, and capable of leading a double life on city streets and park paths. Designed with our holistic approach to fit and geometry, the Storm 2’s longer reach, slacker head tube angle and steep seat tube angle provides more powerful, efficient pedaling, increased climbing traction and added grip and control when descending.
Complementing its 100mm of adjustable SR Suntour XCM fork travel is a solid, reliable Shimano Altus 18 speed drivetrain, so you can always find the right gear and spend less time at the shop. The Tektro hydraulic disc brakes provide amazing, controllable power for confident, safe stops on and off of the road.
ABOUT THE STORM ALUMINUM
The Storm picks up where road, gravel, and hybrid bikes can't go – fatter tires, off-road-oriented progressive design, and features that'll give riders the chance to truly experience what mountain biking is truly all about in a bike that won't break the bank.
Whether you've found your way back to bike after years away, or are just exploring a new way to ride, the Storm offers quality, performance and accessibility to a wide array of riders, and is the perfect chance to give you the time and versatility to learn what kind of mountain biking is perfect for you!
The Storm uses Norco's holistic approach to fit and geometry to achieve its nimble, confident trail performance. The unique combination of longer reach, slacker head tube angle and steep seat tube angle provides a more forward weight distribution within a longer wheelbase. This allows more powerful, efficient pedaling, increased climbing traction and added grip and control when descending to help make the most of every ride.
100MM FRONT SUSPENSION
Each Storm features a 100mm suspension fork – the perfect amount for off-road adventure and exploration, without feeling like you're carrying around extra weight or bulk that you don't need.
INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING
By routing the brake and shift cables inside the Storm 1 and 2 frames, they are out of harm's way and away from the elements. That means shifting and braking performance last longer between services, and the bikes look clean! Storm 3 and 4’s external routing makes service quick and simple.
2.35" TIRE CLEARANCE
The Storm series comes equipped with 2.25" tires for a smooth, all-round fast ride, but the frame can take up to 2.35" rubber, so if your adventures start to get a little looser, just throw on some wider rubber, and the Storm is good to go!
TWO WHEEL SIZES, ONE BIKE
Depending on what frame size you ride, the Storm is available in a wheel size to suit you. The XS, and S are equipped with 27.5" tires to help fit smaller riders, and the L and XL feature 29" wheels so taller riders can take advantage of their smooth ride. If you ride a medium, you're in luck! You get to choose either wheel size depending on your preference!
