Optic C1

Using Norco's Ride Aligned™ design system to create its fit, geometry and suspension kinematics, the Optic C1’s playfully aggressive personality is complemented by 125mm of rear travel via a custom Fox Performance Elite FLOAT DPX2 rear shock and a 140mm Fox Performance Elite 36 fork.

To provide the best available high-speed trail performance, the Optic C1 features Shimano’s new XTR M9100 components, including 1x12 shifting and 4-piston 203/180mm brakes, with a lightweight e*thirteen TRS Race Carbon cranks. Stan’s Flow S1 rims spin on Shimano XT Boost hubs for light weight, robust wheels.
