If you want to get back to the basics, the Torrent S1 is the way to go. It’s an aggressive, high-speed chromoly hardtail that eats hype for dinner, and lets you prove your mettle on the toughest trails. The Torrent rages on modern trails without the need for rear suspension or advanced carbon layups – it’s just you and some hand-welded All-Mountain hardtail goodness – so you can be sure that every bit of that mud-splattered sense of satisfaction you’re feeling by the end of a tough trail comes from your skills - not just technology and suspension design.
Using Norco's holistic approach to fit and geometry, the Torrent S1’s unique combination of our next generation of Gravity Tune, 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 pedaling, increased climbing traction and added grip and control when descending.
The Torrent’s modern features and progressive All-Mountain design provide stable, agile descending, paired with climbing capability that would make a mountain goat jealous – Perfect for any rider looking to bring their trail riding to the next level without the extra expense and complexity of rear suspension, and a new challenge for advanced riders trying to keep themselves honest.
To support riders through the lunacy that the Torrent's inspires, each bike is equipped with 4-piston disc brakes, shorter seat tubes, long-stroke dropper posts and aggressive knobby 29” tires.
