On endless stretches of roadway, the Norco Valence A 24 invites your junior to get comfortable for the long haul. Its light and responsive aluminum frame dampens vibration through arcing seat stays, while the oversized downtube, bottom bracket shell, and broad chainstays efficiently transmit rider input for explosive acceleration. Adding to the lively feel is a tapered head tube mated to a carbon-bladed fork for stable tracking and extra vibration reduction. The Valence A 24-inch bike is designed for young riders with its scaled-down sizing and reliable drivetrain components from Shimano. The lightweight double-wall aluminum wheelset, wrapped in Kenda Kontender 24-inch x 25mm tires, offers stout protection on pavement or gravel, and contact points are finished in Norco's own blend of sporty junior-sized components for a great fit.
The same features and technologies found on Norco's Valence Aluminum are now available in a 650c youth road bike. Its lightweight X6 alloy frame and carbon fork deliver refined, long distance comfort and performance to budding road racers. An integrated ARC Endurance system delivers unrivaled vibration dampening, while the super stiff Power Chassis pedaling platform is the source of the bike's punchy acceleration and a highly responsive ride feel—rewarding riders who like to get up out of the saddle. The Valence A Claris 650C features the value-packed Shimano Claris 16-speed drivetrain and Tektro brakes for worry-free reliability, while the lightweight double-wall aluminum wheelset wrapped in Schwalbe Lugano tires offers stout protection on pavement or gravel. Contact points are finished in Norco's own blend of sporty components, and a clever flip-out alloy chip provides mounting points for racks or fenders, further enhancing this endurance machine's comfort and versatility.
