Shimano motors remain at the top of the engine popularity alongside Bosch motors. No wonder, as evidenced by EP8. Even steepest climbs the Shimano motor easily climbs up well Although the EP8 isn't the strongest when it comes to maximum power, it still has its advantages.. The Shimano EP8 provides a natural riding experience with a gentle power delivery. Fans of XXL tours will be happy with the 2023 Range VLT C2 due to ist excellent range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the 2023 Range VLT C2 in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (8000) .

The good Rock Shox chassis confidently dampens small and medium bumps. 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. Bad brakes reduce the riding pleasure. Fortunately, this is not the case with the 2023 Range VLT C2. With their four pistons and large brake rotors the SRAM brake brakes good. The drivetrain and components have a subordinate but not to be neglected importance when it comes to EMTB. Even the bike brand product managers know this and don't aim too high with mostly average components. At a 63,2° angle flat steer angle and the long reach, one can certainly speak of modern geometry. For the very good geometry, the developer team of Norco definitely deserves props. Such a knack for detail in geometry is rarely seen.
