$3,794.00 Sale Save

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.


  • 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.
