Norco Optic C2 Trail Bike
The 2020 Norco Optic is a heavy hitter in a small package. Don’t let its 125-millimeters of rear travel fool you into thinking this bike is anything less than a highly capably trail bike. Combined with a progressive geometry and a 140-millimeter travel fork, the Optic charges trails with authority and “steeze.”
The Mountain Bike Action Crew was pleasantly surprised with Norco’s Sight, tested in our May issue, so we had high exceptions when it came time to test this shorter travel option.
Mountain Bike Action is a monthly magazine devoted to all things mountain biking (yes, that’s 12 times a year because we never take a month off of mountain biking). It has been around since 1986 and we’re still having fun.
