The mountains of Vancouver’s North Shore have ignited imaginations for decades - an enchanted realm formed by nature and hand sculpted with trails of triumph and confronting challenge.
There is a life force at play here - intertwined with every rock, root and trail relic. It draws you in and alters your perception of the impossible, leaving an undeniable, indelible mark.
It’s where boundaries are broken and limits hyperextend. Where gravity meets technique and technology amplifies instinct to exploit every scrap of untapped potential.
Twenty years have passed since we drafted the blueprint for the original Shore. The mountains of North Vancouver remain steadfast, demanding evermore from riders and their equipment. They are the ultimate inspiration and proving ground for the sublime big-mountain ride that’s driven by the mystical place that started it all, and demands the most from those who ride there.
The Shore uses Norco’s Ride Aligned™ Design System which matches each individual bike to the human who rides it, creating a customized Freeride platform that is both stable and balanced, allowing you to push harder. Using individual rider metrics, precise suspension kinematics, a proprietary app technology, you’ll align with your ride experience like never before.
By integrating an idler pulley into an elevated pivot Horst Link suspension design, a rearward axle path can be achieved with minimal pedal kickback, and the precision coil-specific suspension kinematics ensure grip and support to boost jumps and shrug off deep landings on rough trails.
Suspension design and rider compartment are designed to get the bike moving quickly on run-ins and rollers. Maximized pedal efficiency gets you to the top faster and conserves energy for the descent you’ve planned your whole ride around.
CHOOSE YOUR POISON
The Shore is available in two distinct configurations, depending on the type of riding you love. 180mm rear travel combined with a 180mm single crown fork and a wide-range 12-speed drivetrain for big, burly trail rides in the wild, and 190mm rear travel paired with a 200mm dual crown fork and a 7-speed drivetrain for big days at the bike park.
DURABLE DESIGN, EASY MAINTENANCE
Frame design, hardware and component decisions have been made specifically to keep the Shore on the trail and out of the shop – and when maintenance is necessary, it’s easy and quick.
