The Aurum Carbon Killer B is a purebred downhill race machine developed in conjunction with Norco’s DH teams and proven on the World Cup stage and in bike parks around the world. 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.

Seconds at the start gate feel like an eternity. Mind and body are pulsing — in perfect sync. Your line gives you the edge you need; your bike will help you stick it.
