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.
Norco adhered to a strict design philosophy to realize their goal of producing a highly efficient carbon structure. Simplified tube cross sections meet and blend seamlessly with one another at all junctions. Norco's SmoothCore mandrels enable them to maintain precise control over the inner surfaces of the frame, particularly critical at complicated, high stress areas like the head tube and bottom bracket junctions. Their ArmorLite resin enhances frame strength and impact resistance, resulting in the toughest, most resilient DH frame Norco has ever made.
