This just may be the most heavily praised bike of 2020 with it topping the list of many publications bike test. Pinkbike even crowned the Optic as their “bike of the year.” With the positive reviews puring in, it shows Norco have really done something special with the new Optic!
Using their holistic approach to fit, geometry and suspension kinematics, the Optic FS 3’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 FS 3 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.
