    Summary

    Expirience with the Norco Optic C2

    Norco Optic C2 Review In Canada, mountain biking is a different beast compared to Europe, and the Optic C2 is prime evidence of that. Despite packing just 125 mm of rear travel, this rig is fully tuned for downhill thrills. The commanding High Pivot rear suspension design is typically found on bikes with significantly more squish. Can this quirky approach actually work? Thanks to a moderate 65 degree head tube angle, the handling is pleasantly balanced. Anyone who has no special preferences for the seating position can´t go wrong with the Optic C2. Because the saddle takes the balanced approach. For this, the shifting components are pretty much the best thing you can expect on a complete bike for 7499 Euro . The guarantee promise of 5 years ensures trust. Caution when selecting the size: the Carbon frame sizing runs small.
