The Optic Carbon is a fast-pedalling trail bike that rides with just the right mix of cross-country efficiency and all-mountain capability. Ride faster, with more control, and complete confidence – the Optic gives you a whole new perspective on the trail and is the ideal bike for all-day trail adventures.
Engineered with carbon front triangle and seatstays and alloy chainstays and linkarm, the frameset strikes a balance of lightweight, strength and stiffness. Featuring size scaled tubing, the frame maintains the same stiffness and ride quality across all frame 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.
