The All-New Norco Threshold Cyclocross Bikes
Norco Bicycles (Canada) – “The toughest riders don’t shy away from harsh weather: they embrace it. Rain, wind, sand and mud? Bring it on. No one said bike racing was supposed to be easy”, stated Norco Bicycles.

Norco Bicycles introduced the all-new 2018 Threshold cyclocross platform. “With updated geometry, a redesigned frame, and an arsenal of features to combat the muddy mayhem of cyclocross racing, the Threshold delivers on performance and durability”, they added.

A compact top tube and short chainstays make the Threshold ultra-maneuverable on tight courses. Increased fork offset helps the Threshold steer more predictably, especially in deep mud, while a slightly slacker head tube angle and lower bottom bracket increase stability when the terrain gets steep. The seat angle has been made steeper than previous generations to help riders with quick accelerations. According to Norco, “The overall ride is quick and nimble, yet stable and confidence inspiring, so that you can make the most of every ride”.

The redesigned frame on the Threshold uses the same ARC Race technology found on Norco road race bikes, reducing rider fatigue and allowing the bike to roll more predictably off-road, while the Power Chassis design’s oversized head tube junction, down tube, BB shell and chainstays deliver optimal lateral stiffness to maximize pedaling efficiency and power transfer. Size-Scaled Tubing on the Threshold means that all riders will experience the same positive ride characteristics, regardless of frame size.

“Cyclocross races don’t get cancelled for inclement weather, and mud baths are inevitable”, they added. Front and rear 12mm thru axles on the Threshold deliver maximum stiffness for enhanced responsiveness and control through rough, rutted terrain, while flat mount disc brakes offer incredible modulation, stopping power and control through mud, sand, snow, grass and gravel.

To further help combat severe weather, the Threshold now has huge clearance front and rear to support the use of wider tires, and stealth mounting points so that riders can install fenders. The ingenious SASSY (Secret Attachable Seat Stay Yoke) clips on to the seat stay bridge and along with NINJA and BOiL threaded inserts allow conventional fenders to be fit to the Threshold, while remaining inconspicuous. The Threshold comes equipped with GIZMO internal cable routing and a seat clamp cover to prevent water and mud from entering the frame.
