Transitions redesigned 2018 GiddyUp trail bike lineup has been released into the wild.

And its far from just adding a couple of new bike industry standards like boost and metric shocks. Their new 2018 bikes started with a clean slate and new approach to bike geometry that they’re calling SBG (Speed Balanced Geometry) that put simply places the rider in a more balanced position on the bike which in turn ‘”improves traction and control at all speeds”. The holy grail of design we guess! The main focus with the updates in Transitions words “was to maintain the ride feel of each model while simultaneously pressing the enhance button a few times.”

In addition to integrating the SBG system on all existing models, Transition have added a new bike, the Sentinel to the lineup. The Sentinel fit’s between the Scout and Patrol in travel range, and is capable of being used in the same manner of both bikes depending on your preference for travel and wheelsize. The Patrol, Scout, and Smuggler all feature increased travel, optimized pedaling performance, additional size options, and ton of new features to create our most capable lineup to date.

A variety of RockShox and Fox fork models featuring SBG offsets will be available for purchase with SBG framesets.
