Norco Officially Releases the Aurum HSP Downhill Bike - Sea Otter Classic

Jonesing for more insight, we met up with Norco designer and engineer, David Cox, for a run down on the bike's development process, suspension tuning, geometry, and the many fine details that tie it all together:

The Aurum HSP was designed with a single purpose: to be the fastest downhill bike we’ve ever made.
