The Aurum Aluminum offers a DH-proven design in a premium aluminum frame. As the ultimate DH park rig, the Aurum Aluminum will happily churn out park lap after park lap throughout the season. 200mm of front and rear travel deliver excellent suspension performance and will turn the roughest terrains into smooth rides. Originally developed in collaboration with Norco Factory Racing, the bike’s World-Cup racing heritage will also put any passionate downhill racer to the forefront when racing against the clock.
DH machines are some of the most routinely abused bikes in the bike world. The premium 6061-T6 aluminum frame is built to take this punishment and comes with strategic frame armour for protection from rocks and trail mishaps. Integrated fork bump stops, fender and shuttle guards ensure practical, everyday protection. Featuring size scaled tubing, the frame maintains the same stiffness and ride quality across frame sizes, providing you the handling characteristics we intended for, no matter what size you are.
To ensure riders of all sizes achieve an optimal weight distribution, the rear centre length of each frame size increases proportionately to the front centre length. This gives all riders the ability to maintain a centered body position resulting in predictable grip as well as improved handling, stability and control.
200 mm of front and rear travel deliver highly capable suspension performance for greater confidence and control on rough terrain. Supportive mid-stroke helps you push into lips and pop off jumps and a progressive suspension curve prevents bottom outs in flat landings. The Aurum Aluminum is the perfect choice for both bike park and rough, high-speed terrain.
We are strong believers in the 7-speed DH drivetrain, which is also why we designed the full Aurum Aluminum lineup around it. 7-speed drivetrains deliver the full gear range needed by racers and offer more useful jumps between gears. A reduced rear-end width delivers an optimized chainline for the 7-speed system as well as improved heel and hazard clearance.
Designed from the ground up around the 27.5" wheel, the Aurum Aluminum is a ride with fast acceleration and nimble handling characteristics lap after lap.
