Product Info

Aggressive short-travel bikes have emerged as the leaders in fun, and the Norco Optic C3 Complete Mountain Bike is an example of why. An absolute ripper of a bike, this thing jumps, turns, and just flat out goes fast. Thanks to its slack angles and tougher wheels and tires, it's the mini DH bike we've all been looking for, but it's as spry and lively as a hardtail! If you dream of berms, jumps, and on-the-edge speed, this is the bike for you. It makes every trail more fun!

RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate DH CustomRockShox paved the way for DH racing with over 20 years of results to back it up. The Super Deluxe Ultimate DH is where the technology and results come together. Featuring the ride tuning abilities of an air spring with both compression and rebound adjustment to fine tune the ride to any trail or condition. Now offering Maxima Plush fluid for a buttery smooth feel, riders can easily dial in a podium-worthy ride. The Optic’s suspension was designed around very specific shock performance, with spring and damper characteristics, so Norco sourced customized rear shocks with the precise spring and damping curves they were looking for.

Vittoria Martello Rear TireThe Vittoria All-Mountain Enduro Tire covers aggressive treads and strengthened constructions to prepare the rider for the huge demands of jumps, drops and various tire-threatening obstacles typical of Enduro and Downhill trails. This is where the Martello tire is rooted.

Vittoria Mazza Front TireStarting with a defined center tread, the Mazza tyre for Enduro mountain bike uses deep siping in the direction of rotation, allowing the tire to roll fast while still opposing drift, especially in off-camber terrain. The stepped leading edge rolls like a ramp, but digs in on climbs, making Mazza a top choice for both front and rear use. Substantial room was designed into the center tread to provide braking traction, while also accelerating cleaning.

Stan's Flow S1Durable and lightweight, this aluminum wheelset was developed on the World Cup DH circuit. It has a wide rim for more stability with larger tires, optimized for 2.35" - 2.8".
