The 2020 Norco Search XR Carbon Revealed: New Builds and Fresh Paint

The new 2020 Norco Search XR lineup has been revealed with new build kits and fresh paint.

Although largely unchanged for 2020, Norco has updated build kits and slapped some pretty new paint on its Norco Search XR line. The biggest news, an X-Fusion Manic Gravel 50mm Dropper post is not specced on all but the base models.

2020 Norco Search XR C SE / XR C1

For 2020, Norco has put together a SRAM Force eTap 12-Speed build (XR C SE) and a Shimano GRX 11-speed build (XR C1).

Both builds are finished with Easton EC70 AX Carbon handlebars, X-Fusion Manic Gravel 50mm Dropper posts, and 700×42 WTB Resolute tires.
