With plenty of accolades under their belts for new trail and downhill offerings, Norco is focusing on cross-country race bikes, adding a full-suspension version of its Revolver.

Currently in development with its pro team, there is no production date set as Norco takes its time to carefully implement the feedback of its athletes. Prototypes of the full-suspension Revolver have been under its riders for nearly a year now in “white bike” version. Now with a snappy new paint job, we think they must be getting close to full production.

The new Revolver is likely to come in 29er and 27.5 wheel sizes, as we spied both at their Sea Otter Classic booth this week. The team build includes Stan’s wheels, Kenda tires, SRAM XX1 shifting, and Avid XX brakes. On the 29er, the RockShox RS1 handles bumps in the front, and the RockShox SID World Cup does the honors on the 27.5. RockShox Monarch provides the rear suspension.
