2. Norco Valence A3 Forma, RRP £660
Norco’s Valence A3 Forma at £660 comes in five frame sizes ranging from 42-54cm, great news for more petite women.
The double butted 7005 aluminium alloy endurance frame gives a more upright riding position which means a more relaxed ride. Component-wise, the Valence sports the Shimano Sora range, with an FSA Vero chainset.
