Transition Patrol Frame 2018
How do you improve on mountain bike of the year? Easy, give it more control, more confidence and more party. Our most popular bike continues to push the boundaries of what is possible to ride on a long travel trail bike. An efficient well mannered ascender that immediately switches into pure party mode on the way down. Our Speed Balanced Geometry creates a super slack bike that adds front wheel traction going up and down that will have you pushing your bike further than you ever thought possible.
"Following extensive back-to-back testing I can confidently say that Transition's SBG-equipped bikes will likely lead the next wave in the continued evolution of bicycle geometry. They provide such an intuitive and controlled experience that my riding game goes up a few notches. That's real progress. Looking the bike over, nearly every aspect of an already awesome frame has been updated, tweaked, or tuned for 2018. This is Transition 2.0, and it's awesome. - Brandon Turman"
Speed Balanced Geometry
SBG ensures the bike maintains low speed agility, front wheel traction, and proper rider weight balance while actually increasing confidence in steep terrain and at high speeds. With SBG, a slacker head tube angle is combined with a all new reduced offset fork standard, preventing the front wheel from being too far in front of the rider. This improves front to rear weight distribution on the bike, which is often out of balance on long and slack bikes. One of SBG's greatest benefits is that it creates a confident steering feel that adapts to wheel speed. More stability when going fast, more agility on technical slow speed maneuvering as well as improved traction, control and confidence for any skill level of rider.

CONQUER THE MOUNTAIN
The new 36 Performance Elite features the agility of the smaller 34, but with some added grit for increased stability on rough terrain. A larger stanchion diameter, and added travel makes for a fork that delivers with the performance of a DH fork, and the agility of an Enduro fork. It features an EVOL air spring for added plushness, and a tapered steer tube for reliable and sturdy handling. The black anodized stanchions are buttery smooth, and magnesium lowers save weight. The HSC/LSC or FIT04 three-position damper offers precise control over changes in terrain, letting you plow through whatever comes your way.
