Using Norco's Ride Aligned™ design system to create its fit, geometry and suspension kinematics, the Optic C2 GX’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 Plus fork.
Adding to its high-speed trail performance, the Optic C2 GX features SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain with GX DUB cranks. Shimano MT520 4-piston 203/180mm brakes control speed, and the light weight, robust wheels feature Stan’s Flow S1 rims on DT Swiss 350 Boost hubs.
THE OPTIC IS A FUN, FAST, SHORT TRAVEL TRAIL BIKE WITH THE AGILITY AND CONFIDENCE YOU NEED TO LOOK FURTHER UP THE TRAIL.
Its 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 shocks create 125mm of rear travel, which we’ve matched to a bump-eating 140mm fork on every model for the control you need to keep your mind on the trail ahead.
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.
