Using Norco's holistic approach to fit, geometry and suspension kinematics, the Optic C3’s playfully aggressive personality is complemented by 125mm of rear travel via a full-custom RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate DH rear shock, and a 140mm Pike Select Plus fork.

Adding to its high-speed trail performance, the Optic C3 features SRAM NX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain with NX DUB crank. Shimano MT420 4-piston 180mm brakes control the speed, and the light weight, robust wheels feature Stans Flow S1 rims on sealed bearing Boost hubs.
