Though the name may be familiar, the Fluid 6.1 2013 Mountain Bike is a completely new bike for 2013. It is an XC /Marathon platform that delivers a similar level of performance as Norco's higher-end models - but in a more economical package. 120mm of Advanced Ride Technology (A.R.T.) suspension ensures that the Fluid 6 is equally fun to ride on both the ups and the downs. The Fluid's custom formed and butted alloy frame is engineered to be light and strong, while modern trail geometry ensures riders remain comfortable in the saddle while still being well positioned to push themselves on both climbs and descents. Components are carefully selected to achieve the lightest, most durable mix possible, making the Fluid 6 a great all-around trail bike for riders looking to take their skills to the next level.
The Fluid rider is someone who is still getting into the sport of mountain biking, and not quite prepared to invest in a top-of-the-line model. They already possess some skills on a bike, and the biggest thing they are looking for, other than affordability, is a ride that will help them to progress and achieve their goals: riding their favourite trail without putting a foot down or descending a steep section that they've always walked in the past, for example. These riders are looking for a bike that will strike the perfect balance between performance and price, and the Fluid is a platform that delivers. The Fluid 6 is Norco's full suspension bike for the masses.
