NSMB knows what a bike needs to be in order to take on some of the roughest terrain in the world. They put this knowledge to the test in a recent review of the 2012 Norco Aurum in the heart of Vancouver’s North Shore. Have a read through this review and let us know what you think. How do you think the Aurum will do this year on the world cup circuit. There will be as many as 10 sponsored Norco riders on the Aurum in 2012 so keep an eye out for this bike out on the trail and race course in the year to come. (Rider names to come in the new year)
So far I am blown away with the performance of the Aurum, especially in its first year of production. Its evident that Norco have done their homework on this one. Something tells me the Dirt Norco Team had some input for the design and engineering team. The Aurum feels like a concept bike with all its features, except you can own one for as low as $3550. I’m Glad to see a local company as influential as Norco back in the gravity game in a big way. Stay tuned for part 2 of the Aurum Review with visuals from Derek Dix and Matt Dennison.
