Using Norco’s Ride Aligned™ design system to create its fit, geometry and suspension kinematics, the Optic C3’s playfully aggressive personality is complemented by 125mm of rear travel via a full-custom RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate DH rear shock and a 140mm Pike Select RC fork.
Adding to its high-speed trail performance, the Optic C3 features a Shimano XT/SLX 12-speed drivetrain with Shimano MT6100 cranks. Shimano MT420 4-piston 203/180mm brakes control the speed, and the light weight, robust wheels feature Stan’s Flow S1 rims on Shimano Center Lock Boost hubs.
2019 Pinkbike Mountain Bike of the Year – “Take a heaping scoop of modern geometry, add 29” wheels and 125mm of well-managed rear travel, then blend in a generous amount of fun. That’s the recipe that created the winner of Pinkbike’s Mountain Bike of the Year award – the Norco Optic.”
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.
