It doesn't have to be all work or all play. See things differently on board Norco's Optic Carbon 9.1. Buff singletrack? A forest of off-camber roots? Punchy climbs and chunky descents? Yes, yes, and yes; all things are possible with 110mm of dialed A.R.T. suspension powered by a Fox Float DPS shock and 34 Float fork. Roll loud and proud on fast-moving, 29-inch, tubeless-ready DT Swiss wheels dressed in super tacky Schwalbe tires that grip through loose, high-speed berms. SRAM's XX1 drivetrain and a carbon RaceFace crank offers smooth shifting, impressive chain retention, and a wide gear range. And let's not forget the rest of the bike: an SDG Circuit saddle, ODI grips, and RaceFace handlebar and stem keep those contact points happy; SRAM Guide Ultimate disc brakes keep you in control; and a RockShox Reverb dropper post lets you get rad on all your favorite descents.
