Review: Norco Fluid FS A1

Max Rhulen

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.

Introducing the 2023 Norco Fluid FS A1

Norco's new mid-travel aluminum trail bike combines thoughtful spec and pricing with modern geometry and performance that should appeal to a wide variety of skill levels.

Mike Levy

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. .

Norco Fluid FS 3 review

Mick Kirkman

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
