Details

If you're looking for all the speed and control of a pro-level downhill rig on a privateer's budget, take a gander at Norco's Aurum 3. 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 schuss down straightaways at mach speed. Plus, you get 200mm of front and rear travel thanks to RockShox's Domain triple crown fork and Norco's bump-swallowing A.R.T. suspension with an X-Fusion shock. To keep you rallying, you get tough Sun Ringlé wheels shod in sticky Kenda tires, a solid SRAM drivetrain, an e.13 guide to keep your chain on lock and powerful Avid Elixir discs.

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.
