Norco, thank you! Ladies, the wait is over…

Norco introduced the Vixa in 2009 in response to a demand for a female-specific freeride bike. The bike was a hit, and it’s back in 2010 with a few minor tweaks to make it more rideable. New for this year is a shorter chainstay and slightly longer toptube to improve the fit for smaller-statured female riders.

The hydroformed frame offers 152mm/6” of travel. The 66° head angle on the bike, combined with a 6”  non-adjustable fork, biases this bike towards the freeride category. It is available in three sizes: extra small, small and medium. I’m testing a medium for this review.
