If you want to get back to the basics, the Torrent 2 is the way to go – it’s an aggressive, high-speed chromoly hardtail that eats hype for dinner, and lets you prove your mettle on the toughest trails.
Using Norco's holistic approach to fit and geometry, the Torrent 2’s unique combination of our next generation of Gravity Tune, longer reach, slacker head tube angle and steep seat tube angle provides a more for-ward weight distribution within a longer wheelbase. This allows more powerful pedaling, increased climbing traction and added grip and control when descending.
To go along with the basic theme of the butted chromoly frame, we spec’d the Torrent 2 with a SRAM SX 12-speed drivetrain. We also gave it some real big bike credibility with a 150mm RockShox 35G fork, a burly SRAM DUB crankset, and strong TRP G-Spec Trail S brakes.
