The Optic is an aggressive short-travel sled that absolutely rips on descents but can get back up without a gondola. With 125mm of DH-inspired rear suspension, and 140mm travel up front, the Optic embodies Norco's Ride Aligned technology to provide clarity when your vision starts to blur from the speed, or your over-active tear ducts. - Optic Carbon 29" 125mm FT/6061 Alloy RT - Ride Aligned Trail geometry based around 140mm short offset forks - Slack 65 Degree HA - Short seat tubes with long travel droppers - Ride Aligned Suspension setup - Updated Chainstay and Seatstay - Stiffer, 180mm post mount brake, added heel clearance - Vittoria Mazza and Martello tires w/Graphene 2.0 Compound - Stan's Tubeless Ready - Rims pre-taped, valves and sealant provided RIDER BENEFITS: - RIDE ALIGNED: The Optic uses Norco's Ride Aligned design system which matches each individual bike to the human who rides it, creating a customized platform that is both stable and balanced, allowing the rider to push harder. - FINE TUNED REAR SUSPENSION: We created the Optic's suspension design around a very specific spring curve and damper settings, and RockShox and Fox stepped up to build everything we were looking for. - HIGH SPEED BY DESIGN: By relaxing the Optic's head angle to 65 degrees for stability, we fine-tuned the handling with reduced-offset forks – providing even more high-speed precision and predictability for a more aggressive trail attack. - EQUIPPED TO DESCEND: To bolster the Optic's descending prowess, each bike is equipped with 4-piston disc brakes, shorter seat tubes, long-stroke dropper posts and aggressive knobby tires.
The Aurum Aluminum offers a DH-proven design in a premium aluminum frame.

The Norco Aurum A7 offers a World Cup-proven design in a premium alloy frame. This 650B-wheeled downhill race and park bike combines their most advanced mountain technologies including Gravity Tune, 200mm A.R.T. suspension and an integrated shuttle guard. Latin for gold, the Aurum delivers high-speed control and durability for full days in the park or racing against the clock.
Poise and grace aren't typically used to describe a blazing DH run, but one ride aboard Norco's Aurum might have you stoked about the refined composure of this speed fiend's character. 27.5-inch wheels provide a quick and stable foundation, while precision carbon fiber engineering gives the Aurum's frame loads of stiffness for pinpoint control. Norco chose to design the Aurum around the real-world benefits of a 7-speed cassette, using 142mm rear axle spacing to optimize the chainline and increase heel clearance, while keeping tighter gear ratios for race-winning runs. The Aurum C7.1 Framekit includes a Fox Float X2 Factory rear shock and Norco 142x12 thru axle.
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!
The Aurum HSP was created for one single purpose: to be the fastest downhill mountain bike available.
