The Sight VLT C3 29 is a carbon electric All-Mountain bike with Norcos legendary descending capability and quick, confident climbing thats delivered with an electric kick.
We combined what made the 2019 Sight VLT The Loam Wolfs e-MTB of the Year with our proprietary Ride Aligned design system, and engineered it around a state-of-the-art Shimano E7000 STEPS e-MTB drive system. With its 500Wh in-tube battery, optional 360Wh range extender compatibility (sold separately) and e-optimized 29-inch wheels, this is the next level in electric mountain bikes.
The Sight VLT C3 29 offers 150mm of Rockshox Super Deluxe Select + travel and is equipped with a RockShox Yari RC e-rated 160mm fork. The SRAM SX Eagle drivetrain keeps the power on and Shimano MT520 4-piston brakes slow things down, while the 34.9mm TranzX dropper offers size-specific drop.
"Riders have been raving about 29-inch wheels for years, and we found the best combination of strength and performance for the wheels on each Sight VLT 29 to withstand everything electric mountain biking can dish out. They roll over obstacles easier, and maintain momentum through rough terrain. We also wrapped them in Maxxis re-enforced Double Down tires to give you all the support and durability you need on every ride."
Shimano STEPS - All the Power You Need
"Designed to withstand the extreme demands of e-mountain biking, the best-in-class Shimano STEPS E8000 and E7000 drive units will extend your ride and give you the push you need to get through the tough stuff. The E7000 switch-unit and display on all models give you all the information you need, and take up less space on your bars."
"The Sight VLT's in-tube battery provides more range than most other e-MTB's thanks to Norco's unique power management system and the highly-efficient Shimano motor. And, when you add the additional capacity of the optional 360Wh range extender battery (sold separately), you'll ride further than you ever thought an e-MTB could. Without the range extender, every size Sight VLT 29 can carry a full-sized water bottle."
E-MTB Specific Components
"Each Sight VLT 29 comes equipped with components selected specifically for the demands of e-MTB. The e-spec suspension forks, e-rated freehub mechanisms, robust DT Swiss Alpine rear spokes and 1-click shifters on SRAM-equipped models help maximize strength and durability under power."
"Two-piece bridgeless seatstays increase tire clearance and facilitate a steeper seat tube design, permitting longer-travel, size-specific dropper posts. The 34.9mm post, combined with the lower top tube make it easier for riders to move around and to get seats right out of the way on steep descents without sacrificing stiffness or strength when fully extended."
