Strength:

I have the Sight VLT C1 in Blue colorway 1. Solid Shimano E8000 Motor and longer range 630WH battery. What you want in an e-bike 2. Super capable up and downhill 3. Tires are burly and grip great. I was skeptical about 2.4 2.5 tire combo but it works 4. 580 miles on bike absolutely no motor or drivetrain issues. Range 100% intact 5. Norco responds to questions pretty fast 6. Carbon frame and pretty good spec for really fair price point 7. A plus but not a big deal. Blue my favorite color In comparing this bike to a non-motor bike it just isn't the same. It's much heavier and takes a toll on your arms and upper body to control and ride. In comparing it to other ebikes it's one of the best. Great tight turning radius. Medium weight, could be lighter.

Weakness:

1. I don't know if Norco or local dealer but cable set-up on my bike was a rats nest mess. I can easily fix it. 2. Some items like the cassette are cheapest heaviest eagle cassette but could be an asset for an e-bike. Same with Chain. Burly is better as there is a ton of torque on every shift of an e-bike. 3. You could say the same about the one step lower spec on the suspension but again does it matter? I run suspension wide open all the time. After all it has a motor so who cares about pedal bob

Strength:

Lively feel (for an ebike) well sorted suspension, lots of fun, versatile, trail/enduro ride. Cilmbs like a trail bike, probably not as well as longer chainstay bike like a trance or the Treks. Descends with much less Monster truck feel, I much prefer it. Still not as lively as a regular bike but best compromise I have ridden.

Weakness:

A bit heavy still I would love sub 19kg, not cheap, I have VLT 2 and brakes need an upgrade Codes would have been a far better option
