Sleek and fast, the Norco VFR 1 2013 Hybrid Bike is a high-speed commuter that combines the performance of a road bike with the comfort of a hybrid. Featuring a lightweight, double-butted alloy frame, responsive handling and loads of versatility, the VFR is the fitness-minded commuter's go-fast, go-to ride. Many of the same technologies originally developed for Norco's road line were incorporated into the VFR, giving the bike a snappy, nimble feel. The VFR's super-stiff rear end and ultra-efficient drive train are clearly road inspired, ensuring optimal power transfer to the rear wheel. Compared with a pure road bike, the VFR's geometry puts riders in a more heads-up position, which, in addition to being more comfortable, gives you a better view of the obstacles and makes you more visible on the road.
City riding in today's congested urban centres is a sport unto itself, and the VFR lives for sport. This bike is designed for the modern urban bicycle commuter, riders for whom ''the daily commute'' is the most rewarding part of the workday. The trip to and from the office is an opportunity to ride fast and unleash that competitive spirit that can get bottled up in an office setting. Every commute is a fitness test that brings new and unexpected challenges to be overcome, and being faster than everyone else on the road is a personal mission. The VFR is purpose-built for the type of rider who approaches every commute with a competitive attitude. Just don't blame us if you get to work and decide to keep on going. . .
