Product Info

The Norco Optic C2 Shimano Complete Mountain Bike is rad. This 29er has everything that trail riders need, with a lightweight carbon frame coupled with a dialed suspension setup that provides a powerful pedaling platform, without sacrificing the ability to mash the heck out of rugged downhills at terrifying speeds. Needless to say, the balance of this bike is exceptional. By pairing modern trail geometry with custom Fox suspension and a downhill focused spec list, you end up with a machine that excels in all areas and is just crazy fun to ride.

Product Details


Carbon Front Triangle / Aluminum Rear

Ride Aligned™To customize your Ride Aligned™ experience, every aspect of the system ties together with the app-based Ride Aligned™ Bike Setup Guide.

Fox Performance Elite DPX2Combining the best of X2 and DPS, the DPX2 features a recirculating oil damper design with the convenience of three on-the-fly compression damping positions. The Optic’s suspension was designed around very specific shock performance, with spring and damper characteristics, so Norco sourced customized rear shocks with the precise spring and damping curves they were looking for.

Shock AdjustmentsLever Actuated Open, Medium, Firm Modes, Open Mode Adjust Tuning Range (10 Clicks), Rebound, Air Spring Pressure

High Speed DesignBy relaxing the Optic's head angle for stability, Norco fine-tuned the handling with reduced-offset forks and short 45mm stems – providing even more high-speed precision and predictability for more aggressive trail riding.


Fox 36 Float Performance ElitePerformance Elite forks retain the same adjustments, dampers, weight, and 7000 series aluminum upper tubes as Factory Series, but have black anodized upper tubes instead of Genuine Kashima Coat. In other words, this fork is as good as it gets!

Drive Train

Shimano XTShimano XT is the original mountain bike groupset trusted by generations of mountain bikers around the world. Whatever the trail, whatever you ride, XT is your solution for mountain biking today. Reliable shifting. Superior braking. Intuitive maintenance. XT is the high-performance workhorse you can count on.


Shimano XT BR-M8020 Hydraulic Disc BrakesThe 4-piston Shimano XT hydraulic disc brake ups the stopping power by 10% over the M8000, 2-piston version making it perfect for aggressive trail riding.


Vittoria Mazza Front TireStarting with a defined center tread, the Mazza tyre for Enduro mountain bike uses deep siping in the direction of rotation, allowing the tire to roll fast while still opposing drift, especially in off-camber terrain. The stepped leading edge rolls like a ramp, but digs in on climbs, making Mazza a top choice for both front and rear use. Substantial room was designed into the center tread to provide braking traction, while also accelerating cleaning.

Vittoria Martello Rear TireThe Vittoria All-Mountain Enduro Tire covers aggressive treads and strengthened constructions to prepare the rider for the huge demands of jumps, drops and various tire-threatening obstacles typical of Enduro and Downhill trails. This is where the Martello tire is rooted.
