Norco Truax 1 Freeride Full Suspension

4/5 (1 Reviews)
MSRP : $3745.00


Product Description

Featuring our refined A.R.T. suspension, an augmented version of the proven FSR suspension – the most efficient suspension system available – the Truax rides like a dream thanks to four major benefits: more efficient pedaling, improved braking, better square-edge bump absorption and easier-to-tune suspension. This bicycle is also stacked with refinements and technologies that add to the stunning ride qualities and aesthetically refined curb appeal. Simply put, the new Truax is faster, smoother, and prettier, providing a better ride and looks than its predecessor. Here are some of the features you will find on this bike:

  • A.R.T. suspension: results in a smoother, faster ride uphill and down and what we like to call enhanced smilivation or innovative smile design (ISD for short).
  • Full-length seat tube: more options for the rider. Use a full-length, normal seatpost if you want or upgrade to a telescoping seatpost. We’ve even included the cable routing for remote tele seatposts.
  • Lower bottom bracket and centre of gravity for improved handling: snappy, stable and responsive in all situations
  • Integrated drop out design: Syntace X12 142 x 12 mm integrated drop out, built-in gussets and custom-tapered, hydroformed tubing. A stiff rear provides energetic and reactive ride qualities.
  • Clevis-less pivot system: fewer parts, lighter, simpler and fewer stress points. An elegant, clean evolution in pivot points.
  • Tapered head tube provides a stiffer, stronger frame with no weight penalty
  • Custom hydroformed tubing is used throughout the main triangle and rear stays
  • 65.5° head angle: the perfect angle for a bicycle pointed downhill

Norco Truax 1 Freeride Full Suspension Pro Review

The Norco Truax was introduced in mid-2011 and is the evolution of Norco’s iconic Shore series of freeride mountain bikes. The original Norco Shores were some of the true beasts of the freeride scene that exploded in the late 1990s and early 2000s and, while they were solid bikes that could handle the abuse that most riders threw at them, they were also heavy and overbuilt because of the conditions that they were forced to endure.

Date Reviewed: November 7, 2011

Strengths:    Fast e stable. Make you feel confident.

Weaknesses:    Cable lines exposed. All the mud goes straight to the front derailleur. Some kind of little mudguard needed.

Bottom Line:   
Good purchase. Good value. The right bike if you need something to climb but you prefer descent.
Not so expensive as other better advertised products.

2012 Truax 1 - have questions

I am thinking about buying one of these this weekend (on sale at the end of the season). Can't find many reviews on this bike. Any experience with this new bike? I demoed a medium (I am 6 foot) but they have a new large for sale, would that be too big for me? Also, even though the bike has an ... Read More »
