If you've ever wondered what a waterfall feels like as it crests, you might climb aboard the Torrent 7.2 from Norco. A super stiff aluminum frame means serious speed and razor-sharp handling, and the Suntour Raidon fork up front is prepared to keep you pinned to your most ambitious lines with 120mm of suspension. Rely on Shimano's 1 x 10 drivetrain to get you where you've got to go with a wide set of gear ranges, either up or down. Plus-size Alex rims are outfitted in 27.5 x 2.9-inch Schwalbe tires, so you'll roll gleefully over obstacles and sail through corners with traction galore. The aluminum bars, stem, and saddle from Norco complete this trail-stomping machine, for a bike that is on the precipice of unhindered fun.
