Developed with the Giant Factory Team riders who push the limits of their bodies and bikes week in and week out, this bike is made to boost confidence and shave seconds on the most punishing enduro terrain. We engineered the geometry of the Advanced composite frame and swingarm around larger diameter 29-inch wheels. That means shorter chainstays, a longer toptube, and just the right angles with the headtube (64.56 degrees) and seattube (76.36 degrees). We gave it an updated Maestro rear suspension system with 146mm of travel. The trunnion mount shock and Advanced Forged Composite rocker arm deliver an active, super plush feel on the trail. Other features including a cleanly routed dropper seatpost and a new Giant WheelSystem with Boost hub spacing and tubeless tires complete this race-ready package.

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!
Want to see what you're capable of? First, you need a bike to get you there. Get started with Norco's Range Carbon 7.3 Framekit. Its lightweight carbon frame is seriously stiff for inspired cornering and wonderful responsiveness, while the 650B wheels increase traction and hold momentum like a 29er, yet are quick, playful and strong like 26-inch hoops. Out back you've got 160mm of Norco's legendary A.R.T suspension so you'll have the confidence and control to barrel into anything full speed. Oh yeah, that's all driven by a Cane Creek Double Barrel shock for maximum trail steeze. The 7.3 framekit has the mount for a front derailleur, so it's all ready to go for 2x or 1x systems.
Developed in collaboration with Norco Factory Racing, the Aurum’s World-Cup racing heritage will put any gravity junkie or passionate DH racer in the hot seat — at races and with your buddies during a day at the park. The Aurum A1 features Gravity Tune, with rear-center lengths that increase proportionately to the front center length for each frame size, achieving optimal body position and weight distribution for superior handling and control. The 6060-T6 frame includes strategic frame armor and integrated fork bump stops, with fender and shuttle guards for protection from day to day high speed riding and surprise get-offs.

We re-examined everything we know about XC performance and geometry, and by employing Ride Aligned technology, created the Revolver FS 100; the pinnacle of modern XC performance. The Revolver FS 120 benefits from the same stiff, lightweight chassis, but is specially-designed with a longer stroke rear shock and 120mm XC fork – creating a geometry specifically designed for larger than life rides where you don't have the time to pick the smoothest line – because there's a finish line to cross – in reality or your imagination. - Full Carbon 120mm Frame - 12x148mm - Marathon Geometry with Gravity Tune - Custom Tuned RockShox Rear Suspension - Ride Aligned RIDER BENEFITS: - POWER TO THE WIN: The Revolver FS's Ride Aligned XC design features a low, forward riding position for powerful, efficient pedaling, maximum traction, and a front end that stays on the ground when the going gets steep, so you're in control of where you go, and how fast you get there. - REDUCED FATIGUE: Shifting the rider's center of gravity for optimum weight distribution within the Revolver FS 100's wheelbase, riders are able to navigate every aspect of a race course from an optimal position. The fine-tuned Ride Aligned XC design provides increased grip and support when the rider is seated and powering through undulating terrain, which greatly-reduces fatigue by minimizing the need for weight shifts throughout the race. - STIFFER, FASTER FRAME CONSTRUCTION: The Revolver FS has been designed with a fine-tuned carbon frame to optimize pedaling efficiency. We engineered the downtube, bottom bracket and chainstay junctions to provide a 40% increase in axial rigidity, ensuring every available Watt you throw down is translated into forward motion. - OPTIMIZED SUSPENSION DESIGN: The Revolver FS is designed to excel on a wide variety of terrain. The Ride Aligned suspension kinematics maintain incredible traction both climbing and descending and provides an efficient pedaling platform without having to reach for a lockout, while tracking precisely through rough descents. By employing the Ride Aligned Bike Setup App, your suspension sets up quickly and precisely. - UNCOMPROMISED DESCENTS: In addition to the pedaling prowess of the new Revolver FS, we wanted to be sure it would charge descents – not just survive them. So, we designed the FS 100 with a 68.5 degree head angle and a 60mm stem. The 120 is a degree slacker which, when combined with the Revolver chassis' frame stiffness, 120mm dropper post and 2.35" tires, provides a level of precision and confidence on descents that will leave competitors in your wake.

Big Dummy is a long-tail cargo bike, which means that not only can you haul a serious amount of cargo, different accessories can be added to your Big Dummy frame and deck depending on what you want to carry. Being a dedicated single-piece frame, instead of an add-on to an existing bike, it’s stiffer and resistant to torsional flex, which provides a better ride and longer lasting frame than long-tail add-ons. Like all Surly's frames, it’s made of size specific, 4130 CroMoly steel – a tube set engineered for cargo that sports lots of little touches that you’ve come to love in a Surly, like clearance for big tires and the use of common component sizes. Figure on being able to carry about 200 pounds (90kg) of cargo. The load weight, and how it’s loaded, will affect the handling somewhat. Also, plan on using gears, especially as cargo weight increases. This may seem obvious, but as you get comfy with it, you will use your full range of gears as never before. The included Dummy Rail Collars provide a secondary retention system for the rack, as well as stiffen the rack system so you can safely carry a passenger.
