It’s been some time since Norco offered a full suspension cross country ride, but that hiatus ends with the introduction of the Canadian brand’s 2016 Revolver FS. It’s a bike we first saw in testing at Sea Otter, where we speculated heavily on the new model, and now, the details are official.

Bringing rear suspension to the existing Revolver hardtail line-up, the Revolver FS features a full-carbon frame with 100mm travel for cross country and marathon usage. Based on a claimed 50/50 split in demand, Norco will offer the Revolver FS range in both 27.5 (Revolver 7 FS) and 29in wheels (Revolver 9 FS), with bikes featuring equivalent component spec levels to the name-sharing hardtails.
