  • Cool Hunting’s Katherine Erwin impressed by Norco Optic C2 Women’s

    August 31, 2018

    The Optic is a fast-pedaling trail bike that rides with just the right mix of cross-country efficiency and all-mountain playfulness. When riding, the Optic gives you a whole new perspective on the trail which is why it recently captured the attention of Cool Hunting’s Katherine Erwin. She tested the Norco Optic C2 Women’s on various trails and fully assessed the bike’s handling, design and ride capabilities.

    Read on for what Cool Hunting’s test riders had to say about the bike:

    “An understated bicycle that’s ready for anything.”

    “At first glance the Norco Optic C2 isn’t flashy—there are no bright colorways; just a navy paint job—but look closer and the bike’s details begin to pop.”

    “Really steep descents that would fare best with longer travel bikes aren’t an issue for the Optic C2—we found that it just made us have better body position and not lazily rely on the bike to do all the work.”

    “Although the Optic C2 is a beefy bike for its category, when ridden in all-mountain settings (like when climbing 2,500 feet), we found it to be proficient, responsive and nimble.”

    “The Optic C2 was fast on descents and crushed the climbs. Throughout these journeys, we couldn’t help but feel like we were getting away with something. That’s the beauty of Norco’s Optic C2: it reminds you that less can be more and it’s about the riding, not just the ride.”
