On endless stretches of roadway, the Norco Valence Forma invites you to get comfortable for the long haul. This women's endurance bike has a light and responsive aluminum frame that 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 full-carbon fork for precise steering response. The Valence Disc A 105 Hydro Forma features a smooth-shifting Shimano 105 11-speed drivetrain and hydraulic disc brakes so you can keep your pace and retain control no matter what the weather brings, while the Shimano 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.
