If you're looking to hit big gaps in the park, or shooting for great times on the downhill race course get on Noroc's Aurum 2. 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. Plus, you get 200mm of front and rear travel thanks to RockShox's famous Boxxer RC fork and Norco's bump-swallowing A.R.T. suspension with a Fox Van RC shock. To keep you rallying, you get beautiful Spank Race rims shod in terrain-trouncing Maxxis High Roller tires, a solid Shimano Zee drivetrain and brakes, and an e.13 guide to keep your chain on lock.
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.
