    Summary

    Expirience with the Norco Optic C2 MX

    Norco Optic C2 MX Review In Canada, mountain biking is a different beast compared to Europe. The Optic C2 MX stands as the perfect testament to this fact. Despite packing only 125 mm of travel in the rear, the bike's design is finely tuned for absolute downhill joy. The commanding high pivot suspension layout is typically reserved for rigs with way more squish. Can this unconventional approach truly deliver? Thanks to a moderate 65 degree head tube angle, the handling is pleasantly balanced. Due to the interplay of a relatively long top tube and a low stack, the riding position is sporty. If you love crisp downhill runs, there are other All Mountain around under 8000 Euro that would suit you better. With the shifting components, Norco fulfills not only the current standard, but even puts the icing on the cake with its extremely high-quality components. Norco gives 5 years warranty on the bike.
