Norco Optic C3 2021

The Optic C3 is a fast short-travel carbon fiber trail bike with the agility and confidence you need to look further up the trail. 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.
