From our first ride on the Norco Fluid FS A1 to our last, the bike has remained a joy to ride. Norco has made a more consumer friendly full suspension trail bike that performs above its price point and is durable. Spec’d with TRP 4-piston brakes, a Fox Factory fork, Shimano XT drivetrain, a custom tuned shock, and size-specific geometry, Norco has elevated the game on what an affordable, dual suspension mountain bike can offer.

And that's exactly how Norco is pitching their redesigned Fluid, an aluminum trail bike with 130mm of travel, a 140mm fork, and 29" wheels that sees a load of changes compared to the previous version. .
Mick KirkmanJun 2020
Solid and confident once up to speed, but slow to get there and let down by its fork
Frame is a good shape, with (rear) suspension that’s stable while pedalling
1x SRAM Eagle drivetrain is quiet and secure, with a wide-range cassette to aid climbing
Feels heavy and is slow to get up to speed
Can be tough to manoeuvre when rolling with momentum
Suntour fork isn’t very smooth or effective over repeated hits

Guy Kesteven hits the trails on the Norco Fluid FS1 to find out if a fresh fork, smoother shock tune and the latest Shimano drivetrain deliver on the potential it obviously had last year
Norco's 2019 Fluid FS1 29er is a solid all-around trail machine that offers great bang for your buck.
