The end of 2011 became really hectic for me. Patrol had started up and was as busy and physically demanding as ever, I took and completed my Canadian Avalanche Association Operations Level 1 course and then Christmas hit. Christmas is an insane time for everyone, which is why I was so pumped when my complete 2012 Norco Sight showed up at Fanatyk Co’s doorstep on Christmas Eve.
The Sight 1 weighs in at just over 27lbs with a Rockshox Reverb and tires with tubes (rather than the tubeless conventional seatpost weigh in that happens a lot). This is nothing short of impressive for me, especially since I’ve spent years pedalling 34lb + bikes until now. I took it out for a shred with Gunner, Strand and Paulo a week and a half ago in Squamish and it pedaled super well (Shimano ten speed with the new XTR derailleur!) and shredded on the descents. I think I’m gonna love this one – and why wouldn’t I – it was designed by Owen Pemberton and PJ Hunton, the rockstars who brought us the Aurum!
Thanks Norco. So stoked to be a part of the program again.
