Review
The Norcross Apex is for the serious rider. The bike comes with a lightweight aluminium frame and a full carbon fork. Weighing at only 22.3 pounds, this bike is lightening fast and attacks the tracks with incredible agility. From cornering to gearing, from braking to ride positions, this bike excels in all aspects. SRAM shifters of this bike allow fast and precise shifting while the Avid BB5 disc brakes provide ample braking power. The power transfer in this bike is just amazing and you can feel it straight away as you start pedalling it.
The only down side of this bike are its tires. The Vittoria Cross XG Tires are bit on the thinner side and will not last long if you are planning to ride hard. It is recommended to get those replaced with a thicker set.
Overall, this bike performs well on all fronts. It is a pure racing machine designed for the serious riders and budding professionals. The price point at which this bike is offered is extremely reasonable and it is definitely value for your money.
