There's a new View in sight. The Norco View Killer B that introduced in 2013 was in the vanguard of 27.5 all mountain bikes, as well as four years later on Norco is participating in on the melee of mid travel 29ers while updating the View platform overall.
We've learnt about this abominable 160 millimeter 29er for some time, however we wanted to see just how it would certainly stack up against this year's most in demand lengthy traveling bikes as well as just how it would be gotten by this year's most hungover bike testers. You're probably not in much suspense here, but the response is fucking wonderfully.

The Change Infinity suspension bikes generally ride like they have more travel than the numbers suggest. In the case of the SB5.5, we likewise knew it needed to manage the rigors of EWS programs, so the Fox 36/ 160mm was the best option. We built the geometry around 160 millimeters of front wheel traveling so we might achieve a bike that can rake in a straight line, but not be unwieldy in tighter terrain.
