When you’re out-riding your old kid’s bike, it’s hard to step things up when the only other bikes available are small adult bikes that just beat you up all day. That’s why we built the Sight Youth 27.5.
The Sight Youth 27.5 employs Norco’s Ride Aligned design system to create a ride that doesn’t just fit a 4'9" – 5'2" rider, but is deliberately tuned for them. So, instead of stalling their progress while they outride their kid’s bike — waiting to grow into an adult one — they can step things up sooner and capitalize on the rubber bones and questionable judgment youth provides them.
With 140mm of RockShox Deluxe R Select rear travel and a 150mm Pike fork up front, the Sight Youth’s suspension is custom-tuned to meet the needs of lighter riders who go big, but still have some growing to do. The SRAM SX Eagle drivetrain provides crisp, reliable shifts with minimal upkeep, and the 180mm Shimano MT500 brakes grind things to a halt before you get into too much trouble.
A dropper seatpost allows you to quickly lower and raise your seat to give you an ideal riding position. Dropping your seat creates a lower center of gravity for better control and maneuverability on steep descents, while raising it puts you at normal riding height for efficient pedaling.
Construction can include either hydraulic- or cable-actuated systems and the post’s travel can either be infinitely adjustable or stopped at set intervals, depending on the model.
Dropper seatposts come in standard lengths and diameters and vary by the amount of travel.
