The 2012 Phaser is a no compromise cross country rig for riders who like to go fast during races, endurance events, and late afternoon rips with your fast group of friends. The frame utilizes lightweight MU9 butted tubing and incorporates other weigh-saving features like Norglide composite bearing and a one-piece link arm that integrates a pivot point at the lower shock mount.

Key features on the Phaser:

  • Three trim levels (1, 2, 3) priced between $3999 USD and $2010 USD
  • Phaser 100mm travel frame with A.R.T. suspension
  • Norglide composite bearings at the pivots
  • Rock Shox forks on all levels; 15mm thru-axle forks on Phaser 1 and 2
  • 2×10 gearing on the Phaser 1; 3×10 on the Phaser 2 and 3
  • 11-36t cassettes on all models
  • 680mm handlebars

    Dear Norco, if 29ers are really good for taller riders why don’t you use a longer head tube on the bigger sizes? Pretty sure that taller riders need a taller bar height so at least leave a whole bunch of steerer tube so we have some options!

    Dear Norco,

    Just wondering where in the heck can I buy the 2011 Phaser that is black and blue in Southern California near Downtown Los Angeles. Because your Store locator guide is not up to date and some shops don’t carry your line anymore. I like the bike for its components and the weight of course, but I would like to see if a test ride is possible for altitude climbs.
