Shimano has exclusively manufactured a series of batteries for Norco’s all-new VLT Electric Bike Range. The result is the Norco VLT Generation 3 Battery which comes in 3 new and large capacity sizes! It has been designed to be housed in the downtube of the new Norco VLT range and can easily be removed when swapping or charging off the bike.
The 720Wh Norco VLT Generation 3 Battery offers 33% more range than the smaller 540Wh Norco VLT Generation 3 Battery with a marginal 690g weight penalty (for the number crunchers, it’s a small 22% penalty). In the greater scheme of things, you’ll find the additional weight more than makes up for the greater range!
