Norco’s Aurum Carbon 7.1 is here to blast backwoods shuttle runs, laps in the park, and World Cup courses alike. Its super-responsive, lightweight carbon frame uses race-proven geometry to rip corners and maintain stability when tackling some of the nastiest tracks on earth. Norco knows that DH bikes experience some of the roughest riding conditions, so they incorporate Armorlite resin and integrated frame guards throughout to bolster impact resistance, meaning you can focus on taking the fastest line, not necessarily the safest. Norco’s A.R.T. rear suspension with Gravity Tune powers Cane Creek’s insanely adjustable Double Barrel coil shock for a perfect blend of big-hit compliance with pedaling efficiency. Build up the Aurum Carbon 7.1 and get ready for the ride of your life!
A.R.T. stands for Advanced Ride Technology. Each frame using A.R.T. is refined for its intended purpose. In downhill applications, they increase the rearward axle path for a more controlled ride over gnarly, unpredictable terrain. For cross-country, efficiency and small bump compliance is increased for a faster, smoother ride. An optimization of the proven FSR linkage, A.R.T. delivers excellent pedaling efficiency, square-hit compliance, braking performance, along with a progressive leverage ratio for that wonderful bottomless feel.
Norco adhered to a strict design philosophy to realize their goal of producing a highly efficient carbon structure. Simplified tube cross sections meet and blend seamlessly with one another at all junctions. Norco's SmoothCore mandrels enable them to maintain precise control over the inner surfaces of the frame, particularly critical at complicated, high stress areas like the head tube and bottom bracket junctions. Their ArmorLite resin enhances frame strength and impact resistance, resulting in the toughest, most resilient DH frame Norco has ever made.
