Aurum means gold in Latin, and Norco's Aurum 1 is the gold standard in downhill bikes. Its hydroformed aluminum frame is ridiculously stiff and impressively light for a full-on DH sled, and it features perfectly dialed geometry so you can rail corners and blast down straightaways at mach speed. The frame is fitted with a Manitou Dorado fork and a Cane Creek Double Barrel rear shock controlling Norco's amazing A.R.T. rear end for 200mm of world class suspension that devours the hardest courses. To keep you rallying, you get stout Sun Inferno wheels rims shod in terrain trouncing Maxxis Minion DHF tires, podium winning Shimano Saint drivetrain and brakes, and an e.13 guide to keep your chain on lock.

The tapered head tube and fork provide a stiffer front end for awesome steering precision without a weight penalty. Norco's one-piece Holloform Link Arm dramatically stiffens the rear end and it's hollow to save weight.

The Syntace X-12 157 x 12 through-axle and derailleur hanger system increases axle strength and boosts rear-end stiffness over standard 135mm QR systems. Plus, the integrated hanger is super durable.

Norco's Integrated Dropout Design combines the brake mount, suspension pivots, the derailleur hanger attachment and frame gussets for a stiff, active rear end that brakes well, saves weight and is incredibly strong and stiff.

Norco A.R.T. Suspension

A.R.T. stands for Advanced Ride Technology. Each frame using A.R.T. is refined for its intended purpose. An optimization of the proven FSR linkage, characteristics of A.R.T. suspension include excellent pedaling efficiency and square-hit compliance with a more progressive leverage ratio for that wonderful bottomless feel.
