The TR450 is Washington State based, and company Transition’s first foray into the long travel market. Impressively they have managed to step straight up to the mark with this downhill bike whereas most companies take a few years of development to get it right. The TR 450 has super clean lines and a simple and utterly efficient linkage design that delivers smooth progressive rear travel; we liked the ride of the TR 450 a lot.

Available as a frame, we managed to pinch one of the only TR 450’s in existence to ride and shoot as a full build.
