Watch: Transition teases four new bikes

Four new ponies for Canadian cowboys

Yeehaa! Four new steed incoming from Transition and, it seems, an update to the giddy up suspension platform too.

The big news is that Transition is pumping a load more travel into the range for beefier looking bikes. Here’s what we know

Transition Sentinel 2018

  • 160mm front
  • 140mm rear
  • 29 inch wheels

The Sentinel has been teased on social media for a while and now we finally have some info on it. A trail facing 29er with a nice burly fork to keep things interesting. That’ll do nicely boys, put us at the front of the queue!

Transition Smuggler 2018:

  • 140mm front
  • 120mm rear
  • 29 inch wheels

The Smuggler stays as a nimble 29er trail bike for 2018. Chalky¬†found a real love for the Smuggler we tested last year and it even made it into the Dirt 100. The extra travel (5mm rear, 10mm front) will only give it a bit more burliness that surely can’t hurt.

Transition Scout 2018

  • 150mm front
  • 130mm rear
  • 27.5 wheels

The Scout was only released last summer so it’s no surprise it’s not been too changed for 2018. Much like the Smuggler it gets a bit more travel (5mm rear, 10mm front) though.

Transition Patrol

  • 170mm front
  • 160mm rear
  • 27.5 inch wheels

The jewell in the crown of Transition’s range and the media darling, the Transition Patrol gets the same treatment as the Smuggler and Scout, it’s now a 170mm/160mm beast.
