The Optic uses Norco's holistic approach to fit, geometry and suspension kinematics to achieve its playfully aggressive personality. The unique combination of our next generation of Gravity Tune, longer reach, slacker head tube angle and steep seat tube angle provides a more forward weight distribution within a longer wheelbase. This allows more powerful pedaling, increased climbing traction and added grip and control when descending so you can attack the trail.
FULLY CUSTOM SUSPENSION
We created the Optic’s suspension design around a very specific shock, with spring and damper characteristics that would help define its ride. Unfortunately, that shock didn't exist, so we asked RockShox to build us a fully customized Super Deluxe Ultimate DH rear shock with everything we were looking for, and they delivered! We liked it so much, in fact, that we put it on every Optic in the line!
HIGH SPEED BY DESIGN
By relaxing the Optic's head angle for stability, we fine-tuned the handling with reduced-offset forks and short 45mm stems – providing even more high-speed precision and predictability for a more aggressive trail riding.
EQUIPPED TO DESCEND
To bolster the Optic's descending prowess, each bike is equipped with 4-piston 180mm disc brakes, shorter seat tubes, long-stroke dropper posts and aggressive knobby tyres.
