    Summary

    Expirience with the Norco Optic C3

    Norco Optic C3 Review In Canada, mountain biking is a different beast compared to Europe, and the Optic C3 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? With its geometry, the All Mountain von Norco is right in the middle between playfulness and high speed stability. The balanced seating position is likely to suite the taste of the majority of bikers. If you set great value on high-quality shifting system there are other All Mountain 4999 Euro with higher quality components. With 5 years the warranty is another neat feature. Caution when selecting the size: the Carbon frame sizing runs small.
