For years, time trial bikes have had very similar attributes—skinny, deep airfoils, sketchy handling, subpar braking, and heavy frames. For the "flat and fast" courses of yesteryear, these qualities may have been acceptable, but with today's technically demanding courses, TT bikes needed a change. And with this in mind, we've pushed UCI regulations to their limits adding disc brakes, dropping weight, and dialing in the fit for the new Shiv TT. Is it the most adjustable TT bike out there? Yeah, but don't think it gave anything up to aerodynamics. Here's to another decade of gold medals. We've paired this wind-cheating steed with SRAM's new RED eTAP AXS 1x drivetrain, maximizing every potential gain you could ask for. And yes, we're giving you both the fastest and lightest disc wheel on the market, as well as the fastest wheels we've ever tested—Roval 321 Disc and CLX 64s. - As time-trial courses have become more technical and demanding, it's important to capitalize on years of R&D and pro rider feedback to create the fastest time trial bike—for all courses. From technical inner-city prologues, to rolling courses with steep grades, it's not just about making the fastest bike for a straight line. With this in mind we've cut the weight and greatly increased the handling characteristics of the Shiv TT with an all-new silhouette. - Fit was also one of the biggest design pillars of the new Shiv TT. With years of Retul data, and professional rider data, we've completely re-done the geometry and front-end of the bike. The updated spacers, bridge, and armrests lock in fit, improving stability and confidence, while the one-piece bar and stem simplifies and lightens the weight of the front-end, balancing the overall feel. - Disc brakes are now a necessity in TTs with variable weather, tight corners, and rough surfaces. Not only do they let you late-brake into corners and shift on the bars, but they also create a more stable chassis in corners and when accelerating. And don't worry, they don't lend themselves to any additional drag.
The Section Carbon is built for riders who ride all day and are in it for more than the scenery. This all-road rocket is built around big tires and a lightweight carbon fiber frame with geometry and features that won't let any road interrupt your rhythm. Its lateral stiffness and shock-absorbing vertical compliance provide you with efficient power transfer while smoothing out rough surfaces so you can keep your head down, and your legs churning out the watts — no matter where you ride.
The Section Steel is built for riders who have a taste for the classic look and feel of chromoly, but still want to ride every road they encounter with the same vigor. This ferrous all-road bullet is crafted around big tires with a lightweight, resilient frame with geometry and features that won't let any road interrupt your rhythm. It may look classic, but the Section Steel's lateral stiffness and shock-absorbing vertical compliance rivals many “modern” materials' abilities to provide the all-day performance rider efficient power transfer while smoothing out rough roads.
The Tactic is a race-proven speed machine purposefully designed for carving up asphalt and dominating the race circuit. Engineered for performance with aggressive race geometry, an ultra-stiff Power Chassis, and slender ARC Race stays, the Tactic delivers the perfect balance of sprint-ready responsiveness and vibration damping compliance. You already have your strategy, execute with your Tactic.
The Valence Carbon delivers refined, long-distance comfort in a sleek package. It offers unrivaled vibration damping while maintaining a stiff pedaling platform for punchy accelerations and a highly responsive ride feel – rewarding the riders who like to get up out of the saddle. Endurance geometry means confidence-inspiring stability and control at high speeds.
On endless stretches of roadway, the Norco Valence SL Frameset invites you to get comfortable for the long haul. This responsive, race-ready carbon frame reduces vibration through arcing seat stays, while the oversized downtube, bottom bracket shell, and broad chainstays efficiently transmit rider input for explosive acceleration. Adding to the lively feel is a tapered head tube mated to a full-carbon fork for precise steering response, giving you the tools you need to clock your best gran fondo yet.
