Based around the idea of making the pedal assist bike ride just like the human powered aggressive all-mountain version of the bike, the Sight VLT has been designed and tuned around keeping the best descending characteristics possible. With a little extra power behind the pedals, the new e-mtb from Norco should help you get to the top of the climb with enough energy to still enjoy the ride back down.

Norco’s Sight VLT features a carbon frame running on 150 mm of rear travel, matched to 160 mm of e-bike tuned front suspension. As the Canadian brand’s premium e-mtb platform, the Sight VLT adds a little extra kick via Shimano’s E8000 drive unit and 630 Watt integrated battery, all tuned to provide smooth power delivery so that the VLT feels like it’s analogue Sight siblings. For the entry level VLT 3, a Shimano E7000 drive unit with a 500 Watt batter helps you get up the steepest climbs.
