A new downhill bike from Norco for 2012 is the Aurum. Carefully designed, the Aurum is one of the fastest bikes in the world that can tackle various races from local race series to the World Cup circuit. As what it is named after, the Aurum is made to help make its rider a champion.

Another addition to the mountain bike market was released by Mavic for 2012 with its new Fury shoes. Aside from its added strength and durability, the new Fury is made lighter than its predecessor at 30g per pair, yielding to a total weight of 350g per shoe.
