  • Mountain Bike Action Eyes the Norco Optic Carbon 7.1

    September 20, 2016

    Mountain Bike Action recently tested the Norco Optic Carbon 7.1, calling it “The perfect mix of trail and cross country.”

    While the Optic platform is available in two wheel sizes with a range of builds, MBA noted that “Regardless of spec, the Optic’s frame is going to be its standout feature.“

    Here are some of the test riders’ conclusions:

    On climbing:

    “We rode the Optic up a wide variety of climbs – from technical, rocky trails to steep fire roads – and found that this bike could easily hang with other cross-country bikes while also packing a little more suspension for the way down”

    On descending:

    “…the Optic truly shines on singletrack and flowy, pump-track style trails. Its progressive suspension ramps up fairly quickly, making it a blast to rip down the mountain.”

    Pick up the November 2016 issue of Mountain Bike Action to read the full review, and click here to view the 2017 Norco Optic lineup.
