Check out Norco’s new Aurum HSP bike along with some classic GT Bicycles as they celebrate 25 years of shred.
Norco has released their Aurum HSP downhill bike. Sam Blenkinsop and the World Cup team have been putting it through its paces with good success already this year.
Norco has desigend this to be the fastest downhill bike they’ve ever made.
The HSP is available in a M/L – L/XL for 29ers and 650b/27.5 (XS/S – L/XL).
You can find Deity Blacklabel handlebars on their high end HSP1.
The top of the line HSP you see here is priced at $7,999 but a lower HSP 2 ($5,499) and frameset are also available.
The Aurum HSP features full carbon frame and like many Norco’s includes their Gravity Tune geometry that adjusts key components to fit riders sizes.

GT Bicycles had a retro booth of mostly gravity bikes on display at Sea Otter to celebrate 25 years.
Many attendees aren’t 25 so the chances of them seeing some of these bikes are slim to none.
