Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the Norco Sight. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

11 reasons to buy

  • Experts agree the Sight is a great choice for riders keen to sample the high-pivot world.
  • Testers relish the uphill and downhill performance and competence over big drops and technical terrain.
  • Reviewers say the “comfortable” Sight suits all-day rides.
  • The Sight comes in five builds: two alloy and three carbon.
  • Experts appreciate the excellent frame and chain protection, including shuttle and bash guards, chunky rubber on the chainstays and seatstays, and a custom chain guard.
  • The short seat tube leaves plenty of room for extra-long dropper posts. All builds have size-appropriate droppers.
  • A tester calls the Fox Factory 36 FLOAT fork with GRIP2 damper (C1) “smooth and consistent.”
  • One reviewer highlights the tuneability of the RockShox Lyrik Ultimate fork with Charger 3 damper (C2 MX).
  • Experts say Norco’s Ride Aligned calculator makes initial bike setup very easy.
  • The A1 MX and C1 builds’ Sprindex coil makes tuning the rear suspension easier.
  • Reviewers agree the VPS HP rear suspension’s increased rearward path soaks up chop without feeling sluggish.

8 reasons not to buy

  • Experts say the Sight requires skill and energy to maneuver through tighter turns and compensate for the “bobbing” rear end.
  • Testers bemoan the 180mm rear brake rotor, which quickly overheats.
  • The Sight lacks the built-in storage found on many competitors.
  • A reviewer found the C1’s rear wheel (Stan’s Flow S2 rim, Race Face Vault hub) lost tension very quickly.
  • Testers lament “annoying” noise from the idler wheel and rattling cables.
  • The Sight doesn't have a flip-chip. Owners must buy a kit to change the rear wheel size, but Norco says this maintains geometry and kinematics.
  • A tester is underwhelmed by the Shimano NX shifter on the C2 MX.
  • An expert laments the C1’s Maxxis Minion DHR II tires, saying the front deserves the MaxxGrip compound’s better traction, and sturdier DoubleDown casing would suit the bike better than the thin EXO+.

Bottom line

Norco’s Sight trail bike, now boasting a high-pivot rear suspension, comes in five builds and five sizes catering to a range of buyers. Testers call the Sight an excellent trail or light-enduro steed, praising the flair and traction uphill, confidence-inspiring downhill performance, and all-day comfort. Great components and the “excellent” Ride Aligned calculator make it easy to enjoy out of the box. However, tight trails and the “bobbing” rear end can test energy and skill levels. Niggles include the small rear brake rotor, slightly heavy carbon build, and rattly cables. Overall, experts deem the Sight a worthy consideration.
