IN THE MEDIA

Editors Choice - “The Norco Optic is my pick out of this batch of trail bikes, in large part due to how much fun I had aboard the green machine. I'm not sure what the unit of measure for fun is (Smiles per mile? Cackles per kilometer?), but my fun number was the highest on the Optic.” – Mike Kazimer

Pink Bike

“The Optic begs to be ridden faster, harder, and with more party. The fit is great and it feels super responsive smacking through corners and compressions. I had no second thoughts when dropping into steep terrain with gaps and drops.”

Optic C3

Using Norco's holistic approach to fit, geometry and suspension kinematics, the Optic FS 3’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 FS 3 features SRAM NX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain with NX DUB crank. Shimano MT420 4-piston 180mm brakes control the speed, and the light weight, robust wheels feature Stans Flow S1 rims on sealed bearing Boost hubs.
