The spirit of Vancouver's North Shore rides with you on every Freeride and Big Mountain adventure aboard the Shore 2. The hydroformed alloy frame is designed with Norco's Ride Aligned Design System and the latest in high pivot Horst Link suspension and ride engineering to amplify your instincts on modern Freeride trails. The 180mm RockShox Zeb R fork is paired with 180mm of rear travel with a RockShox Super Deluxe Coil Ultimate DH shock for a rearward axle path that is unaffected by drivetrain forces thanks to an integrated Idler Pulley. The Shimano Deore 12-speed drivetrain provides quick shifts and efficient pedaling with a wide gear range and Shimano MT520 4-piston 203mm brakes keep speed where you need it, when you need it.
The Optic is an aggressive short-travel sled that absolutely rips on descents but can get back up without a gondola. With 125mm of DH-inspired rear suspension, and 140mm travel up front, the Optic embodies Norco's Ride Aligned technology to provide clarity when your vision starts to blur from the speed, or your over-active tear ducts. - Optic Carbon 29" 125mm FT/6061 Alloy RT - Ride Aligned Trail geometry based around 140mm short offset forks - Slack 65 Degree HA - Short seat tubes with long travel droppers - Ride Aligned Suspension setup - Updated Chainstay and Seatstay - Stiffer, 180mm post mount brake, added heel clearance - Vittoria Mazza and Martello tires w/Graphene 2.0 Compound - Stan's Tubeless Ready - Rims pre-taped, valves and sealant provided RIDER BENEFITS: - RIDE ALIGNED: The Optic uses Norco's Ride Aligned design system which matches each individual bike to the human who rides it, creating a customized platform that is both stable and balanced, allowing the rider to push harder. - FINE TUNED REAR SUSPENSION: We created the Optic's suspension design around a very specific spring curve and damper settings, and RockShox and Fox stepped up to build everything we were looking for. - HIGH SPEED BY DESIGN: By relaxing the Optic's head angle to 65 degrees for stability, we fine-tuned the handling with reduced-offset forks – providing even more high-speed precision and predictability for a more aggressive trail attack. - EQUIPPED TO DESCEND: To bolster the Optic's descending prowess, each bike is equipped with 4-piston disc brakes, shorter seat tubes, long-stroke dropper posts and aggressive knobby tires.
