It doesn't have to be all work or all play. See things differently on board Norco's Optic Carbon 7.1. Buff singletrack? A forest of off-camber roots? Punchy climbs and smooth descents? Yes, yes, and yes; all things are possible with 120mm of dialed ART travel powered by Fox Factory suspension components. 27.5-inch wheels from DT Swiss and a pair of super tacky Schwalbe tires let you shred trails in ways you never thought possible. The 11-speed SRAM XX1 drivetrain and carbon RaceFace crank ensure smooth shifting capability, impressive chain retention, and a huge gear range. And let's not forget the rest of the bike. An SDG Circuit saddle, ODI grips, and RaceFace handlebar and stem to keep those contact points happy, SRAM Guide Ultimate disc brakes give you great modulation, and a RockShox Reverb dropper post lets you attack your favorite rock garden with loose, confident control.
