2020 Norco Optic C2
THERE ISN’T A SINGLE ASPECT OF THE 2020 OPTIC THAT HASN’T BEEN EXAMINED, RE-ADDRESSED AND OVERLY-SCRUTINIZED TO MAKE IT A RIPPIN’ FUN SHORT TRAVEL TRAIL BIKE WITH THE AGILITY AND CONFIDENCE YOU NEED TO LOOK FURTHER UP THE TRAIL.
The Optic’s carbon frame uses Norco’s Ride Aligned™ design system to create its high-speed, short-travel performance, with geometry created for confident, playful descents, railing corners and boosting jumps. The precision suspension kinematics and custom RockShox DH shock create 125mm of plush rear travel, which we’ve matched to a bump-eating 140mm Pike on every model for the control you need to keep your mind on the trail, and off of what your bike is up to.
Sure, the steep seat angle and long top tube will help you get all the power and grip you need to claw your way back up, but make no mistake, what the Optic really wants to do is rip back down again.
Every Optic is equipped with DH-focused components – because we know what kind of speed the bike inspires. Big four-piston disc brakes, wide handlebars, short stems, stiff, and burly 29er wheels with tough 2.35 tires give you the control and clarity you need to attack your favourite trails at speeds that go by in a blur on regular short-travel bikes.
