To some, it’s about carving endless ribbons of buff, flowy singletrack. To others, it’s the challenge of punchy trails, technical climbs and off-camber roots. Yes to all of the above! With confidence-inspiring geometry, optimized suspension kinematics for trail riding and high-end component selection, Norco trail bikes offer no-compromise performance and efficiency for conquering the trails you know and the ones you have yet to explore.
Fluid FS 3
The Fluid FS 3’s progressive design provides a unique combination of fit, handling and suspension design to elevate your trail experience. The double-butted 6061 aluminum frame’s smooth welded, size-scaled tubing maintains ride quality across all frame sizes and features internal cable routing for clean lines and a quiet ride.
With models designed around both 27.5 and 29-inch wheels depending on frame size, the Fluid FS 3 features 130mm of X-Fusion RC32 fork travel paired to 120mm of X-Fusion 02 Pro R rear suspension. A SRAM SX Eagle 12 speed drivetrain provides quick, reliable shifts and Tektro HD-M275 disc brakes will bring you to a quick halt if the fun gets out of hand.
FLUID DYNAMICS - THE FLUID FS IS THE ULTIMATE, NO-COMPROMISE SINGLETRACK RIG.
The Fluid FS uses Norco's holistic approach to fit, geometry and suspension kinematics to achieve its playfully confident singletrack performance. The unique combination of longer reach, slacker head tube angle and steep seat tube angle provides a more forward weight distribution within a longer wheelbase. This allows for more powerful pedaling, increased climbing traction and added grip and control when descending so you can confidently evolve your skills.
LIGHTWEIGHT ALUMINUM FRAME
The premium X6 double-butted aluminum frame features size-scaled tubing to maintain the same ride quality across all frame sizes. Thoughtful design details such as internal cable routing and smooth welding allow for clean lines and a quiet, rattle-free ride.
NO-COMPROMISE COMPONENT SELECTION
Component selection at all price points bring performance to every rider – no matter what their budget. Dropper posts, reliable 1x drivetrains, and tubeless-compatible 2.4” tires make the Fluid FS perfect for the trails you know and new adventures
27.5" AND 29" WHEELS
Designed around 27.5” wheels for XS-M frame sizes and 29” wheels for M-XL, mid-sized riders get a choice of wheel size based on their riding style and preferences.
