Norco Search XR C2 gravel bike on test - Canadian all-rounder or gravel specialist

Philipp Schwab

The Search XR C2 is Norco’s take on a do-it-all bike, meant to excel in every discipline from gravel to commuting and bikepacking. Will this bike make the fleet in your garage redundant? Read on for all the details.

  • Very stable and composed

  • Dropper seat post

  • Stiff frame capable of hauling heavy loads

  • Numerous bosses and attachment points

  • Lack of agility and acceleration

  • Mediocre comfort

  • Chainring is too big for long climbs and bikepacking

Norco Search XR Apex 1 review

Simon Withers

Not wowed by the looks, but a lovely and plush steel and wide-tyred all-rounder

  • Well kitted out for all sorts of adventures, good gears and an excellent ride over poor surfaces both on and off-road

  • Slightly lower top gear than a road bike

  • Mechanical rather than hydraulic disc
