Norco’s Aurum Carbon 7.3 was designed by and for World Cup racers, so it's ready to let loose on backwood trails and World Cup courses alike. Its race-proven, super-responsive, lightweight carbon frame helps you sail over doubles, float through rock gardens, and maintain stability at insane speeds. Norco knows that DH bikes experience some of the roughest riding in the world, so they used their Armorlite resin and integrated frame guards throughout to bolster impact resistance, allowing you to focus on taking the fastest line, not necessarily the safest. On front end duty, RockShox's Boxxer RC fork delivers 200mm of travel to soak up big hits, while Norco’s A.R.T. suspension works with the RockShox Kage RC coil shock for a perfect blend of big-hit compliance with slingshot-out-of-corners efficiency. Sun Inferno 29 rims are laced to sealed Formula hubs for sturdy, reliable wheels that are ready to take on the gnarliest tracks around. Delivering 7 speeds of DH-specific gearing is Shimano’s Zee drivetrain with a Race Face Respond DH crank, while SRAM’s powerful Guide brakes scrub speed and stop on a dime. Finished off with a Spank Director stem, Spank Spoon DH bar, and SDG I-Beam seat/post combo, this Aurum C7.3 craves gravity as much as you.

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.
