    250$ difference...I want to see if anyone who actually ridden the Aurum or\and Fury...if can compare with other DH bikes...would be excellent.

    I think the Fury has better equipment but the Aurum Geometry is more DH oriented...

    Well the Aurum 2 has a similar spec and is two thousand dollars cheaper. So that one.

    Two grand is a hell of a trip to Whistler, or Silverstar, Champery, Les Gets, Pemberton...

    #Edit, wait, Kiwi dollars? Maybe not so much. I'd probably still have the Norco on the grounds that the frame is cleaner, has less mud traps and no I Drive link getting pelted with rocks under the bb.

    I rode a Fury last season for a day and can say it was not fun. Was a quick bike just didn't like how it cornered or jumped. Really want to try an Aurum and was going to get one for this season but ended up finding a deal on something else

    I ride a Transition Syren x 3 years. My husband rode a Norco Range last season and liked it, but he needed a beefier bike with more travel to handle his style of riding. A friend who rides with us has a Norco Aurum (he bought it used on PB) and he's been riding it for 2 seasons. He loves it

    Many riders at our local bike park have Norcos and they are very loyal to this brand. I don't recall seeing a GT on our trails

    One of my crew picked up an Aurum in August of last year.
    So far he is loving it.

    If it were me, Aurum.

    Very interesting because in the internet I find people writing about the Gt which is a very loyal bike and not many maintenance.
    But Aurum is noisy and I saw one which was pretty bit up...so I tend more toward the GT but here all say Aurum....mmm...

    I like my Aurum. I don't find it to be noisy at all.

    Not much input from me but I took a Aurum out for a demo last year and felt comfortable on it instantly. It handed very well and was a little more nimble at jumping then my Devinci Wilson.

    Norco is a great company and so is the bike.

    The Norco Aurum 1 we tested was very lively and nimble. The bike handled rough terrain well and went where you pointed. It is a solid frame for sure.

    I just picked up my custom Aurum LE. I haven't ridden it yet, but it sure does look damn nice:

    Bump. Has anyone ACTUALLY ridden both of these and can compare the ride between them?

    Geo numbers help, but they're not everything, and similar bikes can ride very differently. Some may want a fast straight shooting sled with a main mission to go fast at the expense of a nimble playful jumper. I'd rather give up a little performance in rough chunk to have a poppy bike that love to jump.
