It's beefy, it's long, it feels a bit raw. Actually, you'd almost need to throw a flannel shirt over the Sight VLT C2 to highlight its Canadian roots even more.

Shimano motors remain at the top of the engine popularity alongside Bosch motors. No wonder, as evidenced by EP8. The well-rounded motor control and the gentle power output characterise the character of the Shimano motor. Thanks to the excellent range, you should no longer have any range problems.

At a glance

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

The good Rock Shox chassis absorbs even larger roots with the calmness of a Buddhist monk. Especially for heavy riders, the Norco brakes could be a problem. With four pistons they only decelerate averagely. 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. The flat head tube angle and long wheelbase provide riding stability due to the 64° angle. The low bottom bracket height will likely be a sticking point for trail riders, as it negatively affects handling.

Value for money

Conclusion


Expirience with the Norco Sight VLT C2

For long tours, the Sight VLT C2 with an amazing range, a good motor and a good chassis is well equipped. Only with an average brake system and a middle ground groupset you have to look away. Praise-worthy: 5 years of Warranty on the Frame!
