Details

The Optic C3 is an aggressive short-travel sled that rips on descents and can get back to the top without a gondola.

The Optic C3 sharpens your view on high speed trails. The precision suspension kinematics and custom DH spec shock creates 125mm of rear travel, matched with a gravity-eating 140mm fork for the control you need to keep your mind on the trail ahead.

Reasons It's Rad:
- Fast never felt this fun.
- Designed to work so you can play.
- Components selected with speed on the brain.
- Matching each Optic to the human who rides it.
