Norco Optic C2 ShimanoRegular price $6,699.95
The Norco Optic was super popular with Hobat mountain bikers last year.
It even won 'Bike Of The Year' from Pinbike; it's an awesome trail mountain bike!
It's perfectly balanced for our local trails with 125mm of rear travel, 140mm up front, and long and low modern geometry.
The extra travel up front steadies the bike in rough terrain while the slightly lesser rear end provides enough suppleness to keep things tracking but not too much that the bike feels boring on flatter, less gravity orientated terrain. Combine this with Norco's 'Ride Aligned' bike design focus and you have a bike that is balanced in suspension and geometry like no other.
The Norco Optic is perfect for riders who relish the single, enjoy a lively agile ride and aren't afraid to spend some time in the saddle pedalling away.
This Optic C2 Shimano model gives riders that smooth, dependable XT drivetrain and brakes with Fox suspension front and rear to smooth out the trails. It's an impressive build kit to match a seriously impressive frame.
Merida One Twenty 400Regular price $2,599.95
The Merida One-Twenty 400 Dual Suspension Mountain Bike is a versatile trail speedster that hits all of the right spots. It tries to bring together the climbing ability of the Merida Ninety XC race bike with descending capabilities of the Merida One Forty all-mountain bike. The light alloy frame is equipped with a 120mm Suntour Unair TR LOR8 Rear Shock and Suntour XCR34 LOR Fork with 130mm travel for versatile trail performance. The Float Link Rear Suspension Design moves with the system to deliver sensitive response characteristics and this really is a difference-maker.
The Shimano 1x11 Speed Deore Drivetrain is more than respectable with its smooth and reliable shifting given the efficient 1x setup. The Tektro M275 Hydraulic Disc Brakes which are also equipped on many bikes in this price range, are more than capable when it comes to responsive braking power that allows you to properly take on the trails. The 29x2.4” Maxxis Rekon tyres are matched with light Merida Comp CC aluminium rims and together they provide a ride that is relatively smooth with a respectable blend of traction and speed.
The Merida One-Twenty 400 Dual Suspension Mountain Bike is built for robust performance, an extremely capable trail bike that doesn’t shy away from any challenges. The Shimano Groupset is swift and the Suntour suspension will perform admirably for many rides to come.
Float Link Rear Suspension: The lower shock mount moves with the system to deliver sensitive response characteristics. Our engineers can precisely influence the transmission ratio and progression meaning a ‘Float Link’ rear suspension system appears to offer more travel than the model name suggests.
Superlite 16 Alloy: Our latest grade of aluminium (6016) enables super thin wall thicknesses whilst delivering amazing strength, ideal for demanding off-road riding and racing.
X-Taper Headtube: Using a tapered head tube with 1 1/8" bearings in the top and 1 1/4" or 1 1/2" in the bottom creates superb stiffness and precise, confidence-inspiring steering.
Internal Cable: Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets. The bike looks neat, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt.
Smooth Welding: Sometimes called ‘double pass welding’, a second pass over the weld gives a clean organic look to the frame. At first glance you will be convinced it is carbon.
Smart Entry: Cables, housings and brake hoses are clamped under tension to prevent rattling when the trail gets rough. All inlets are completely interchangeable to deal with Di2, hydraulic hoses, brake cable and gear cable housings etc.
Merida One Sixty 400Regular price $3,699.95
The Merida One Sixty 400 is an aggressive dual suspension mountain bike that thrives on technical trails and downhills. An aggressive ride comes from aggressive race-proven geometry with super short chainstays, longer reach and slacker head angles that add playfulness and agility to the lightweight alloy frame. The RockShox Yari RC Fork with 170mm travel and trunnion mounted RockShox Deluxe Select+ Rear Shock form a winning combination. The Float Link Suspension ensures that that shock mount moves with the system for improved pedalling efficiency and plushness.
The 11 speed Shimano Deore Drivetrain offers simple and efficient brilliance, perfect for tackling tough trails. While the Deore 4 Piston Hydraulic Disc Brakes give you braking control in any weather for improved confidence while you're rolling on 27.5" Maxxis Assegai Front Tyre and 27.5" Maxxis Dissector Rear Tyre for the optimal blend of speed and control. The 400 differs from its big brother in the 700 in a few key areas, conceptually the bikes are the same, however the 700 is kitted out with a 12 Speed Shimano XT Groupset as well as a Marzocchi Z1 Fork and Fox Performance Float DPX2 Rear Shock. Ultimately the Merida One Sixty 400 is a very impressive bike with a suspension setup that maximises both comfort and performance for a dynamic ride that really excels on challenging terrain.
