    2015 Norco Sight

    Put in an order a few weeks ago (7 1.5c). However with the ‘14 sold out am on the list for the first batch of the 2015 model year (due in August).

    Sounds like there will be a few changes, making it easier to wait:

    Tubeless ready rims
    Magic Mary and Hans Dampf
    Reverb ---> Reverb Stealth
    180mm rear brake rotor
    Matte Black, with color accents ----> Red with Black accents

    Am considering, swapping out the Fox32 for a Pike but it doesn’t seem like the LBS will give a very good trade in for it.... have folks heard the details for the higher end builds?

    Took a closer look at the credit the shop was giving me for the Fox32, that along with a discount (10%) had me ready to do the upgrade to a Pike.

    One of the guys at the shop has a custom build Sight (alloy), with a Pike 150mm , 1x drive-train, Reverb dropper and SRAM Trail brakes. He was kind enough to let me take it out for a day. First time trying out those components and was pretty happy with the setup.

    In dropping off the bike, they had just gotten the 2015 Norco catalog, was able to look up the spec and frame photo of the next model up (7.2c) it comes with:

    Pike RC Solo air- 140mm
    Crane Creek DB Inline w/Climb mode
    SRAM Guide RS brakes- 180mm f/r
    SRAM X1 drive-train

    Had them crunch the numbers, looks to be about a $400 bump vs upgrading the 7.3c fork(which replaces the 7 1.5)... have them looking into the ETA in switching the order.

    BTW- got a quick look at a pic of one of the Range models, looks great in yellow.

    Any idea what the colourways for the Sight carbon 7.1, 7.15, 7.2 would be?

    How about the specs for the 2015 7.1C? And also, any price changes?

    Thanks.

    On the colors:
    7.1 Off hand don’t recall but pretty sure it was a solid color.
    7.2 the headtube area was the Carbon Fiber weave, due to camera angle and lighting couldn’t tell for sure about the rest of the frame... but it was a semi-gloss black with green accents.
    7.3(replaces the 7 1.5) Red (medium shade), with black decals.


    Prices:

    7.2 looks to be about $150 more.
    7.3 around $280.


    Consider the changes in the build, the 7.2 in particular is a pretty good buy. Did switch my order to one (look to still be in the first batch with a late August ETA).

    The 7.1 did get the top of the line Guide brakes the XX1 drivetrain and Pike RCT3, not sure of the pricing.

    The line up was the 7.1, 7.2 and 7.3 the lower end build, don't recall the LE being listed.

    Also not sure if the Sight alloy is going to be offered. 3-4 days before the new catalog shown up the LBS got a copy of the price sheet, we couldn’t find the alloy listed. But did not double check the ‘15 catalog... has anyone got an order in for a ‘15 Sight alloy?

    LarryCal: thanks mate for the helpful info. Now to see when the dealers in my part of the world would get the MY2015 bikes... hope the wait won't be too long.

    I have been eying the sight so I was interested on the info for the 2015 bike. This thread confuses me though.

    Currently for 2014...
    Sight 1C = $5252
    Sight 1.5C = $4165
    Sight 2C = $3545

    So your saying that the 1.5C is going to be called the 3C now and go up $280 to $4445 and the 2C is going to go up by $150 to $3695? So is the 3C now between the 1C and 2C? I must be missing something here.

    If this below is actually the list of improvements to the Sight 2C, $3695 is a screaming deal!

    "Pike RC Solo air- 140mm
    Crane Creek DB Inline w/Climb mode
    SRAM Guide RS brakes- 180mm f/r
    SRAM X1 drive-train"

    I was wondering the same thing. He must have mixed up the 1.5 and 2. The 1.5 will probably change to 2 and the current 2 will be a 3 for 2015. then the question is what is changing in the build for the (relatively) affordable 3.

    For 2014 (MY) you had the following, for the carbon fiber Sights (USD):

    LE $ 6850
    7.1 $5252
    7 1.5 $4165
    7.2 $3545

    The 2015 (MY) CF Sights:

    7.1 ~ $6600 (Not sure of the exact amount). Top of the line model- replacing the old LE
    7.2 About $5400 replaces the old 7.1 (with the Revelation/Float CTD) with the Pike Solo & CC DB Inline
    7.3 Around $4450 replacing the old 7 1.5
    Don’t know if the MY14 version of the 7.2 will be offered but what I recalled from a quick look at the 2015 price list, only seeing 3 Sight’s listed.

    Thanks LarryCal, that clears it up. I really hope they haven't gotten rid of their lowest option though. that $3500 carbon sight was one of the best deals around.

    my lbs here in Nor Cal has 2 mediums, one 7.2 and one 7.15. he also has a large 7.2. i think the 7.15 is $4150 and the 7.2 is $3500.

    i picked up a 7.1 and I love it, but I kinda wish i got the 7.2 tbh. it would have save me a couple grand and I could have upgraded as I wore out or broke components.

    if you're set on a sight and want to get one he ships bikes. get at me if you're interested and i can get you in touch with him.

    It's dealer only (had asked for a copy or least the section covering the Sight). The LBS best guess was sometime next month before Norco goes public.

    Really wish they had the low cost option on the carbon for 2015. Other companies seem to be getting on board with lower priced carbon. I think they'll lose a lot of business if they don't have a similar option.

    I haven't seen any public info either. Good to hear they will keep the $3.5 carbon model. I'm wondering what changes there might be to the color scheme or components.

    I've heard reveal date is the 22nd of July. Also heard no more alloy. That kind of stinks.

    I guess the date was wrong. I apologize. I was on the phone with a bike shop in California and the guy said there was a dealer reveal event this month he was going to. He must have had the day wrong.

    First batch of MY15 Sight are due to be sent out in mid-August. So would expect Norco to go public a week or two before.

    Sounds like the 7/22 date is dealer only for some hands on time with the MY15 builds.

    saw the dealer cat today - bikes and builds look nice - especially w DBinlines and pikes on so many of the Sight

    I did see 2 alloy Sights in the book - similar pricepoints as this year, but wee bit nicer build spec IMO

    If you missed on a 14 - get the order going w your dealer now and get an early shipper.

    As OP posted - Ranges look good as well - lots o Enduro bike to come in these bad boys

    Also - the fatbike options/price look awesome. ~$2500 for a top spec w Bluto fork or $1000 entry point w decent spec...

    Rich - i think it would be good for Norco to keep em at their pricepoints - they did look to be redesigned tube shapes and shop owner stated that was to keep costs down.

    Of course - Norco may limit or hold production until they gauge demand... so nothing for certain as I see it.

    btw - were you able to score a deal on a Sight? (per your other post?)

    I did get my hands on a Sight. Its the grey 2014 alloy 7.2. Got it brand new and very much below cost on Ebay.

    But I also bought another bike, a new GT Sensor Elite for a ridiculously low price. I need to figure out which fits me better. The Sight is a large and the GT is an XL. Then I will throw one of them back up on Ebay. I would like to keep both but don't know if I could really justify that.

    The Sight is here, just waiting on the GT now.

    Ah yes - apologies as I had read that - I wish I had more "problems" like that

    my bike shop sells the GT's and the owner is categorized racer in DH, enduro and xc - he's had nothing but great things to say about the GT - and I think had GT put out a good spec sheet on em for the price they'd likely gone over a lot better

    do post up your comparisons - may the best for you bike win!

    I gotta say the Sight looks much better in person than on their website. And it came with black Deore cranks instead of the silver shown on the website. Its quite the looker.

    i will concur there - ALL the Norco bikes in shop look more vivid and way better than pix online. shop currently has red alloy and stealth grey Sights, and orange and blue alloy ranges -pretty freekin cool colors. Even my 7.2c looks better - i.e. the blue is much better in person than any online pic.

    I've never seen a different Norco than the one I have in person. Your carbon 7.2 must look amazing in person because it looks pretty damn hot in the pictures I've seen.

    Just put in my order for a 2015 Sight Carbon frame. Got to take a look at the catalogue as well. DB Inlines are standard on the frames and the top two builds. Top two builds also come with Pikes set to 140, SRAM Guide brakes, Reverbs. Wider bars across the board as well. Geo numbers are all the same.

    The frames are available in a metallic-ish yellow/gold and a red. Top build is the yellow colour, next one down is black with green accents. I am told 2015 frames will be in-shop for end of August.

    edit - this is in Canada, just thought id mention, not sure what itll look like in other regions

    Yeah I've ordered a frame only. Comes with DB Inline, and the rear axle. Red one comes with a FD mount and the yellow one w/out. No longer comes with the dropper post or headset apparently, but price is down to 2700.

    2015 Norco Sight

    So my Norco dealer (US) says they haven't seen anything yet regarding 2015 bikes. I guess I'll just wait to see if something pops up on the web.
