The Norco Sight C7.1 Killer B has been named as the Trail Bike of the Year by Decline magazine.

Every year, editors at Decline Magazine recognize the best mountain bikes on the market with their prestigious Head of the House awards. For 2016 the categories were trail, all-mountain and downhill bikes, with the trail category being defined as bikes having 120 to 140mm of rear wheel travel and up to a 150mm travel fork.

Against stiff competition, the Sight was praised for its all mountain-tuned A.R.T. suspension, trail-worthy spec and unique Gravity Tune geometry.

“A highlight of Norco’s dual suspension bikes is their Gravity Tune geometry. Each frame size has its owns specifically tuned geometry and tube lengths so our size large Sight ahd a longer chainstay length than a size small. These tuned frames give each rider the optimal riding position and the time spent on details like this are what make the Sight ride like a dream.”

Norco bikes have been prominently featured in every Head of House issue to date, but this is the first time one has been awarded the title in the trail category.

“This year the Sight C7.1 takes the cake as our favourite trail riding bike. The Sight embodies everything we want out of a trail bike, it is light, versatile and doesn’t make us flinch when the going gets rough.”
