Details

The Optic FS 3 is a fast short-travel carbon fiber trail bike with the agility and confidence you need to look further up the trail.

Using Norco's 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, while the lightweight, robust wheels feature Stans Flow S1 rims on sealed bearing Boost hubs.

A dropper seatpost allows you to quickly lower and raise your seat to give you an ideal riding position. Dropping your seat creates a lower center of gravity for better control and maneuverability on steep descents, while raising it puts you at normal riding height for efficient pedaling.

Construction can include either hydraulic- or cable-actuated systems and the post’s travel can either be infinitely adjustable or stopped at set intervals, depending on the model.

Dropper seatposts come in standard lengths and diameters and vary by the amount of travel.
