The Optic is a fast-pedaling trail bike that rides with just the right mix of Cross Country efficiency and All-Mountain playfulness. Progressive trail geometry has been carefully tuned across each frame size to give every rider the same optimal fit and ride quality, while A.R.T. suspension delivers both efficient climbing and lively, capable descending. Ride faster, with more control, complete confidence and that feeling of becoming at one with the bike – the Optic gives you a whole new perspective on the trail.
Lightweight carbon front triangle and seatstays save 400g over the aluminum version.
Trail-tuned for the perfect balance of traction and efficiency on the way up and complete control on the way down.
The Optic uses 650B wheels on the XS-S frame sizes to offer the best fit and handling for smaller riders, while the M-XL frames use 29er wheels. Both are tuned to deliver a perfect fit and optimal performance on the trail.
Allows for the same compact rear-centre length for both 650B and 29er models, ample tire clearance and a stiffer, stronger wheel.
Offers the flexibility to run a side-swing front derailleur or a clean-looking 1x drivetrain with or without a chainguide.
