Norco has released a super-charged beast as part of its 2019 range - the all-new Bigfoot VLT e-mountain bike.

This pedal-assist fat bike has been designed to exceed rider expectations, creating a true performance machine that's not only at home on tough trails but has also been designed specifically for traction-testing conditions - ideal for coping with heavy sand.  

The Canadian outfit have created the Bigfoot VLT to ride like a modern mountain bike, with the rider cockpit optimised for fast, efficient climbing thanks to its steep seat angle and long front-centre. The balanced geometry provides increased rider comfort, stability and control in undulating and mixed terrain. It also provides the amenities and deliberate features that have made the classic Bigfoot the go-to choice of so many 'fat bikers'.

For those with a chilly destination on the horizon, the Bigfoot VLT has also been designed with a no-compromise cold-weather component mix, including a cold-weather optimised Manitou fork, hydraulic disc brakes that use DOT fluid instead of mineral oil. Norco's research even led them to determine which dropper post works best when the temps plummet!

As with Norco's Sight VLT options, the Bigfoot VLT incorporates the Shimano Steps E8000 drive unit and 630W battery seamlessly into the lightweight aluminum frame so much so that you'll forget it's an electric fat bike until you check your GPS and realise just how far you've gone!

The Bigfoot VLT e-mountain bike is available at two price points:

Bigfoot VLT 1  - RRP $6,499

Bigfoot VLT 2  - RRP $4,999
