Norco created the Aurum HSP C2 to be the fastest downhill mountain bike available to the public. It is built with the same concepts and designs as their World Cup level bikes, engineered in collaboration with the Norco Factory Racing Team to give you every possible edge on every descent. World class brilliance starts with an incredibly tough and lightweight full carbon frame with an improved stiffness to weight ratio and vibration damping for optimised downhill performance. The Aurum has a dedicated frame for both the 27.5″ and 29″ model so that you get a comfortable bike that helps you ride at your best.
To descend with speed you need to be able to handle the bumps well, and Norco’s High-Single Pivot Suspension Design is the secret to the Aurum’s success. An extreme rearward axle path moves the wheel in line with the direction of impact so that you don’t lose momentum through the rough stuff, while an idler pulley isolates the drivetrain from the suspension for unrivalled small bump compliance. Essentially optimising the incredible 200mm travel RockShox Boxxer Ultimate fork and RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate DH RC Rear shock so that they deliver world-class performance and reliability.
When you’re flying downhill you will remain in complete control thanks to the SRAM Code R 4 Piston Hydraulic Disc Brakes with 200mm rotors, ensuring that you can ride with confidence while you’re rolling downhill on the e*thirteen LG1 DH rims with the fast Maxxis Assegai Tyres. All of which is powered by the SRAM GX DH 7 speed drivetrain, which really takes this bike to another level with its power transfer and reliability.
The Norco Aurum HSP C2 downhill mountain bike is a great example of Norco putting pro level design and technology into a bike that you can take home and crush your local downhill races or training rides. This bike is unbelievably fast and if you want the best in downhill mountain bikes, then look no further than this rugged creation from Norco.
Aurum HSP Full Carbon Frame: All of our carbon frames are manufactured with only the highest-quality materials. The lightweight and durable full carbon fiber frame of the Aurum HSP provides an improved stiffness-to-weight ratio, increased vibration damping and maximum strength. The frame structure is specifically designed to distribute loads and absorb any form of impact energy. Featuring size scaled tubing, the frame maintains the same stiffness and ride quality across all frame sizes.
Gravity Tune: To ensure riders of all sizes achieve an optimal weight distribution, the rear centre length of each frame size increases proportionately to the front centre length. This gives all riders the ability to maintain a centered body position resulting in predictable grip as well as improved handling, stability and control.
Choice of Wheel Sizes: Designed from the ground up in two wheel sizes, the Aurum HSP offers riders of different sizes a similar ride feel. To achieve this, the front and rear triangles for the 27.5″ and 29″ frames are different. Available in 27.5″ (XS – XL) and 29″ (M – XL), you are able to choose your wheel size based on your size, riding style and preferences.
High-Single Pivot Suspension Design: The high-single pivot (HSP) suspension design allows you to carry maximum speed in the roughest terrain. The extreme rearward axle path moves the wheel rearwards with the direction of the impact, helping the bike maintain momentum, whilst reducing rider fatigue. The idler pulley isolates the chain from the suspension, resulting in exceptional small bump compliance, grip and control while eliminating pedal kickback.
