The all-new Norco VLT opens up a world of possibilities. Go farther, get there faster, or simply rediscover the joy of cycling as the intuitive and reliable Bosch e-bike system provides just the right amount of pedal assistance in any situation.
‘E’ IS FOR EXCITEMENT!
Why is Norco so excited about electric bicycles? Because we are driven by a genuine passion for cycling in all its forms, and e-bikes have the power – literally – to get more people riding.
‘E’ IS FOR EXPERTISE
We’ve been in the bike business for over 50 years, and in that time we’ve learned a thing or two about bike geometry, handling, fit, and comfort. We believe these qualities are every bit as important when you go electric, which is why we partnered with Bosch – the leading maker of e-bike systems – to develop bikes that deliver the best possible ride quality and performance. The Noco VLT is the result of our combined industry expertise – every detail has been considered, freeing you to enjoy the ride. For added peace of mind, every VLT is backed by a limited lifetime frame warranty* and the support of our extensive dealer network.
