If you want to get back to the basics, the Torrent A2 is the way to go – it’s an aggressive, high-speed engineered aluminum 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 A2’s unique combination of our next generation of Gravity Tune, longer reach, slacker head tube angle and steep seat tube angle provides a more forward 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 welded aluminum frame, we spec’d the Torrent A2 with a Shimano Deore 11-speed drivetrain. We also gave it some real big bike travel with a 150mm SR Suntour Zeron 35 LOR DS fork, a burly Deore crankset, and strong TRP TR180-22 brakes.
