The Optic C3 is the fun, fast, short-travel carbon fiber trail bike with the agility and confidence you need to look further up the trail. Sure, the steep seat angle and long top tube will help you get all the power and grip you need to claw your way up, but what the Optic really wants to do is rip back down again. Equipped with DH-focused components to give you the control and clarity you need to attack your favorite trails at speeds that go by in a blur on regular short-travel bikes. Using Norco's Ride Aligned™ design system to create 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. Featuring Shimano XT/SLX 12-speed drivetrain with Shimano MT6100 cranks. Shimano MT420 4-piston 203/180mm brakes control the speed, while light weight, robust wheels boast Stan’s Flow S1 rims on Shimano Center Lock Boost hubs.
