The Optic C3 is an aggressive short-travel sled that rips on descents and can get back to the top without a gondola. The precision suspension kinematics and custom DH spec shock create 125 millimeters of rear travel, matched with a gravity-eating 140-millimeter fork for the control you need to keep your mind on the trail ahead.
