Description

On endless stretches of roadway, the Norco Valence invites you to get comfortable for the long haul. Its light and responsive aluminum frame dampens vibration through arcing seat stays, while the oversized downtube, bottom bracket shell, and broad chainstays efficiently transmit rider input for explosive acceleration. Adding to the lively feel is a tapered head tube mated to a carbon-bladed fork for stable tracking and extra vibration reduction. The Valence A Sora features a Shimano Sora 18-speed drivetrain and Tektro brakes for worry-free reliability, while the lightweight double-wall aluminum wheelset wrapped in Schwalbe Lugano tires offers stout protection on pavement or gravel. Contact points are finished in Norco's own blend of sporty components, and a clever flip-out alloy chip provides mounting points for racks or fenders, further enhancing this endurance machine's comfort and versatility.
