The 2023 Norco Optic C1 is a mountain bike that exudes high-performance capabilities and cutting-edge features. This trail-ready bike combines a carbon front triangle with an aluminum rear end, striking a perfect balance between lightweight agility and durability. The carbon front triangle not only reduces overall weight but also enhances the bike's responsiveness, allowing riders to maneuver with precision and confidence. The aluminum rear end ensures robustness and strength in the areas that require it the most, delivering a bike that can handle the demands of aggressive trail riding.
Equipped with a Shimano XTR drivetrain, the Optic C1 boasts a top-of-the-line component that is revered for its exceptional precision and smooth shifting. The XTR drivetrain offers a wide range of gears, ensuring riders have the necessary options to conquer challenging climbs and power through demanding descents. Whether navigating technical sections or tackling steep gradients, the Shimano XTR drivetrain ensures seamless and reliable gear changes, allowing riders to focus on the trail ahead.
Power transfer is optimized with the e*thirteen TRS Race Carbon crankset, featuring a 32T chainring and 170mm crank arms. This crankset provides efficient energy transfer from the rider to the drivetrain, translating into more power on the trail. The carbon construction enhances stiffness and reduces weight, enabling riders to maximize their pedaling efficiency and maintain momentum on any terrain.
When it comes to stopping power, the Optic C1 leaves no room for compromise with its Shimano XTR 4-piston brakes. Renowned for their exceptional performance, these brakes deliver consistent and modulated stopping power, instilling confidence and control in riders. Whether tackling steep descents or navigating technical sections, the Shimano XTR brakes provide the necessary reassurance to ride aggressively while maintaining control.
The suspension system on the Optic C1 is built to handle the rigors of challenging trails. The front end is equipped with a Fox Performance Elite FLOAT 36 fork, featuring the GRIP2 damping system and offering 140mm of travel. This fork excels at absorbing small bumps while remaining supportive during big hits, delivering enhanced traction and control. At the rear, the Fox Performance Elite FLOAT X shock provides 125mm of travel, working in tandem with the fork to provide a balanced and responsive suspension platform. With this setup, riders can confidently tackle rough trails, knowing that their bike will soak up impacts and maintain traction.
To optimize rider comfort and versatility, the Optic C1 features an X-Fusion Manic dropper post. This dropper post allows riders to quickly and easily adjust their saddle height on the fly, maximizing efficiency on climbs and providing optimal positioning for descents. With the ability to adapt to changing trail conditions, riders can maintain control and confidence throughout their rides.
The Optic C1 rolls on a high-quality wheelset consisting of Stan's Flow S1 rims paired with Shimano XT hubs. This combination offers strength, durability, and reliability, allowing riders to tackle challenging trails with peace of mind. The wide rim profile of the Flow S1 provides excellent tire support, enhancing traction and stability when cornering or navigating technical terrain. With the Shimano XT hubs, riders can expect smooth and reliable performance, ensuring efficient power transfer from pedaling to the wheels.
The Vittoria Mazza 2.4" Trail G2.0 tire graces the front of the Optic C1, offering superior grip and control in a variety of trail conditions. This tire excels at providing traction in loose and unpredictable terrain, instilling confidence in riders to tackle technical sections with ease. On the rear, the Vittoria Martello 2.35" Trail G2.0 tire strikes a balance between fast-rolling efficiency and reliable cornering grip. Together, these tires create a harmonious setup that offers both speed and control, enabling riders to conquer diverse trail surfaces.
Completing the package, the Optic C1 features a OneUp carbon handlebar with a width of 800mm and a 20mm rise. This wide and low-rise handlebar provides riders with enhanced control and stability, allowing them to confidently navigate technical sections and maintain balance on challenging descents.
