The very good chassis with 180 mm travel in the front and 170 mm rear hub also proves to have a lot of resilience even on rougher terrain. Setup-Nerds can squeeze out the maximum performance from the chassis thanks to the many setting options. The thick 38mm stanchions on the fork provide an extra dose of steering precision and performance. At the rear, the steel spring shock absorber provides maximum sensitivity. Whoever wants to ride fast, needs good brakes. The Shimano brakes are equipped with four pistons and large brake rotors. That way, the premium brakes decelerate more than adequately. A nice touch: The gear and components are on a very good level. The 63,2° angle low head tube angle gives the 2023 Range VLT C1 increased stability at higher speeds. Hell yeah, the geometry is killer! Here the remarkable know-how of the Norco developers is videly visible.
