The Aurum - Latin for "gold" - earned its name by turning the most challenging downhill mountain bike terrain features into advantages over other riders. Designed in conjunction with Norco's World Cup DH teams past and present and proven on the Downhill World Cup stage, this 650B-wheeled race bike represents the cutting edge of Norco's engineering and design capability and brings together all of our most advanced carbon, aluminum and mountain technologies.
The Norco Aurum A7 offers a World Cup-proven design in a premium alloy frame. This 650B-wheeled downhill race and park bike combines their most advanced mountain technologies including Gravity Tune, 200mm A.R.T. suspension and an integrated shuttle guard. Latin for gold, the Aurum delivers high-speed control and durability for full days in the park or racing against the clock.
Poise and grace aren't typically used to describe a blazing DH run, but one ride aboard Norco's Aurum will have you stoked about the refined composure of this speed fiend's character. Precision carbon fiber engineering gives the Aurum's frame loads of stiffness for pinpoint control, while the RockShox Vivid RC2C Coil rear shock returns a supple, planted feel and big-hit capability when you need it most. The Aurum — Latin for “gold” — earned its name by turning the most challenging terrain features into advantages over other riders. Devour steep, gnarly sections with high-speed control and push your limits whether you’re doing park laps or racing against the clock.
Poise and grace aren't typically used to describe a blazing DH run, but one ride aboard Norco's Aurum will have you stoked about the refined composure of this speed fiend's character. 27.5-inch wheels provide a quick and stable foundation, while precision carbon fiber engineering gives the Aurum's frame loads of stiffness for pinpoint control. Norco chose to design the Aurum around the real-world benefits of a 7-speed cassette, using 142mm rear axle spacing to optimize the chainline and increase heel clearance, while keeping tighter gear ratios for race-winning runs. For the Aurum C7 you get snappy shifts from the SRAM GX drivetrain with an 11-25T 7-speed cassette, SRAM Code R brakes with 200mm rotors, and a burly Race Face crankset. Maxxis Minion DHF tires track with confidence, while the DT Swiss EX 512 rims laced to WTB STP hubs reduce wheel flex and boost tire grip. Trail grading duty is assigned to the revered RockShox Boxxer RC Team fork, and the RockShox Vivid RC2C Coil rear shock returns a supple, planted feel and big-hit capability when you need it most.
Step up to Norco's Aurum Carbon 7.2 and watch new lines open up all over the mountain. Designed by and for World Cup racers, the Aurum Carbon sails over doubles, floats through rock gardens, and accelerates like a dragster at the Bonneville Salt Flats. Its super-responsive, lightweight carbon frame uses race-proven geometry to rip corners and maintain stability when maching through hacked-out tracks. And because DH bikes experience some of the roughest riding conditions in the world, Norco’s Armorlite resin and integrated frame guards throughout bolster impact resistance, so you can focus on charging the mountain. Heading it all up, RockShox's Boxxer Team fork delivers 200mm of travel to soak up big hits, while Norco’s A.R.T. suspension with Gravity Tune powers a RockShox Vivid RC2C coil shock for the perfect blend of big-hit compliance with pedaling efficiency. DT Swiss EX 471 rims laced to DT 350 hubs are lightweight, sturdy, and ready to rally the gnarliest runs. Delivering 7 speeds of DH-specific gearing is SRAM’s X01 DH drivetrain with a Race Face Respond DH crank, and SRAM’s Guide RS 4-piston brakes help you brake late with confidence. The on-point build is finished off with a Race Face Respond bar and a WTB High Tail DH saddle. Look out new lines, here you come.
