Norco Optic C1
The Norco Optic defies convention and refuses to be put into a cookie-cutter category. With 110 mm of rear wheel travel, the Optic has excellent pedalling efficiency that turns a fast-flowing trail into a rollercoaster-type experience thanks to the tweaked trail geometry that also helps instil confidence on hairy descents. The Optic is outfitted with 120 mm of fork travel. With the push of the dropper-post remote, it turns into a seriously capable machine. Thanks to Norco’s trail-tuned suspension, this is one short-travel bike that is up for almost anything.
