2013 Norco Aurum LE Downhill Prototype Bike

2013 norco aurum le downhill prototype bike   2013 Norco Aurum LE Downhill Prototype Bike

If you walked by Norco‘s booth at the Sea Otter classic, the bright colors of the 2013 Aurum LE Downhill bike had to catch your attention, but if you didn’t make it, here is a re-cap of whats to come.

The 2013 Norco Aurum LE DH Bike shown is a prototype, so some things will change upon release. For example the production model will feature new bump stops, altered cable routing and the linkage mounted clamp will be on the seatstay.

Getting the 2013 Aurum LE at the 2012 Sea Otter Classic was to show the limited edition colorway to come. Only on the top of the line Aurum, you will have somewhat of a retro inspired theme with vibrant blue and green paint job plus black and white decals.

Releasing mid summer of this year, a price point has yet to be determined.

After the success of the Hanzz, Cube is adding a new downhill bike called Two15, which has even more travel. In cooperation with downhiller André Wagenknecht and Fox Racing Shox’s Eamonn Cleere, the making of the Two15 is expected to be a success.

What Wagenknecht provided is the input for geometry and handling. On the other hand, Cleere delivered the necessary technical details to design the kinematics within the limits and possibilities of the chosen damper, the Fox DHX-RC4. Moreover, the bike’s weight was reduced by 500g.

Thanks to Wagenknecht and Cleere, the 2012 Cube Two15 Downhill Mountain Bike is made first-class. Using Triple Linkage Kinematics with a curve of the linkage over the whole shock travel, compression and both high and low speed rebound surely work over the complete travel in a linear way.
