The Optic Aluminum delivers all the features and high-end components of its carbon counterpart, but in a premium aluminum frame. Its trail-specific geometry and suspension kinematics offer a balance of traction and efficiency on punishing climbs and complete control and stability on high-speed descents. The Optic Aluminum is all you need to push your limits on the next trail.
The double-butted aluminum frame allows us to reduce weight without sacrificing stiffness, giving you a quick, responsive and playful riding experience. Just like the Optic Carbon, the Optic Aluminum features size scaled tubing, which maintains the same frame stiffness and ride quality across all sizes. Thoughtful design details such as internal cable routing ensure a clean, sleek design.
To ensure riders of all sizes achieve an optimal weight distribution, the rear centre length of each frame size increases proportionately to the front centre length. This gives all riders the ability to maintain a centred body position resulting in predictable grip as well as improved handling, stability and control.
Custom-tuned inline shocks offer high performance at a lightweight. Small-bump sensitivity with a supportive mid-stroke create a perfect balance of traction and efficiency on the way up and complete control on the way down.
From the ground up, the Optic is designed around two wheel sizes - 27.5" for XS-S and 29" wheels for M-XL frames. Both are tuned to deliver stable and playful handling characteristics for aggressive trail riding.
