Transition Smuggler Carbon Frame

Like the reliable tool you grab for every job, the Transition Smuggler is the go-to bike for any trail pointed up, down, and all around. With dual 29 inch wheels, 130mm rear and 140mm front travel, the Smuggler may just be the most versatile bike in Transition's lineup. A highly progressive leverage curve and comfortable, confidence-inspiring geo make it eager to keep going mile after mile while remaining surefooted in even the most technical terrain. Sitting squarely between the Spur and Sentinel in travel, geometry, and capability, it shares qualities of both. Inspiring and rewarding to hammer on your favorite singletrack, while never holding you back when the trail gets steep, the Smuggler will make sure you enjoy it all.

The Smuggler has been one of the most anticipated reincarnations of a previous model within the walls of Transition. There's plenty of aggressive terrain around Transition's headquarters that is more suited to the Spire, Patrol, or Sentinel, yet there’s been a lot of internal buzz about this generation Smuggler. It’s not all downhill in the PNW; there’s plenty of singletrack, technical trail, and meandering connective routes. The Smuggler is perfect for a day when your path comes across all of the above.

Transition went into the Smuggler project with the intention of creating a bike that had the quick and high-energy feel of the Spur, but with a bit more travel front and rear. What they ended up with was a perfect blend of the Spur and Sentinel in geometry, travel, capability, and weight.

The kinematics are similar to the Spur with a little over 27% progression. This provides a bottomless feel in a mid-travel package. Paired with the Fox Float X shock, the Smuggler can be set up to suit any rider's preference. Looking for a bit more progression? Just add a larger volume spacer. All of this equates to a super lively, active, and forgiving rear suspension feel in any terrain.

    Features

    • The new headtube has integrated bearing cups and no longer needs headset cups pressed into the frame. This allows the frame to have super clean cable ports at the front of the headtube with fully guided internal cable routing from the headtube to the port above the bottom bracket shell. From there, cables cleanly enter the rear triangle hidden from view.
    • Size specific chainstays. As the frame sizes grow, so do the chainstays to keep rider weight balanced on the bike.
    • 27% progression
    • Gear/Accessory mount beneath top tube
    • SRAM universal derailleur hanger
    • Included FSA integrated headset
