Norco Bicycles (Canada) - Press Release: COMMIT - 20 years of pushing boundaries.
Twenty years ago, when we saw what people were starting to do on their mountain bikes at the jump trails, we KNEW it was going to be something big.
Slopestyle and pump tracks hadn’t been invented yet, jump trails were only for BMX riders, and the only way we could make dirt jumpers tough enough was to steal ideas and parts from our Freeride, DH, and BMX bikes.
The all new 2020 Rampage focuses Norco’s two decades of riding and building dirt jumpers into an all-new bike that brings modern design, engineering and jump-specific spec together to push your riding to the next level – whether it’s jumping, pump track, slopestyle or street.
Every Rampage is built to be as light as possible with a highly engineered aluminum frame that’ll withstand whatever happens to it and features specially selected parts that won’t let you down – because everybody knows, you only progress when you get right back up and try again, so your bike should, too.
Style and Purpose:
No matter who you are, how your bike looks is just as important as how it rides – especially if you're out goin' big with your buddies. The Rampage features our most current Street/Dirt frame design with massive standover clearance and perfected geometry for riders who need a bike that lives up to their skills, and looks good.
Light and tough:
While BMX riders are still full-on into Chromoly frames, we've been hearing from team riders, that they're looking for something lighter and stiffer than steel can provide – so the Rampage features a tough, light aluminum frame that’s built to last.
Small bike – Big range:
The Rampage is available in three frame sizes in three different models, so no matter where you’re coming from, or what kind of budget you have, Rampage will open the floodgates of flow.
Parts to get the job done:
We’ve been building and riding dirt jumpers for longer than just about anyone – and we've picked up a few tricks and secrets along the way: Tough 2 and 3-piece cranks, BMX-style, compact single speed drivetrains and sealed bearing hubs, disc brakes with lots of line for bar spins – We cover the nitty gritty so you can just ride.
The Rampage's tapered head tube adds strength and is compatible with the most modern forks, the custom chainstay yoke allows a shorter, more agile back end, and the slim, lightweight slotted dropouts feature hidden chain tension adjusters for an easy, secure setup.
