Blenkinsop on Norco's Radical New DH Bike

Date Mar 22, 2017

Camelbak has unveiled Norco's proto DH bike in their video for Blenki's road to Rotorua. And there is much to ponder. 

Blenkinsop's New Norco DH Bike

A closer look. It appears (from other images in the video) there is an idler pulley to accompany this interesting linkage design. Calling it radical is an understatement when you compare it to any previous Norco suspension layout. 

What exactly is going on there?

Pretty sure that since Norco had a sponsored article up on that other MTB site, the cat's out of the bag on this one. High single pivot with idler pulley system like Commencal.

They did, back on Feb 28.

It's interesting that the new Commencal dh bike is now a more traditional low pivot.
