Build This Bike

Don't let it's sleek carbon frame and appearance fool you, this is a full-fledged aggressive trail bike, sans rear suspension. In fact, it's the burliest, slackest, lowest hardtail to come from the folks at Transition. Looking for a trail-ripping hardtail that blurs the lines between your enduro bike and your dirt jump bike? The Throttle fits the bill perfectly. 

The Throttle is constructed from carbon fiber, with frame weight coming in at a scant 1500 grams (3.3 lbs). It features Transition's progressive long/low/slack geometry found on their full suspension bikes - in other words, this is not an XC bike. It's a bike that takes you back to the basics, so to speak, giving you that raw, unadulterated hardtail experience while still allowing you to get rowdy. That's exactly what we like to see in a hardtail. A slack 66° head angle keeps your confidence on steep lines, while the short 16.5" chainstay provides plenty lively feel. 

The Throttle utilizes internal routing for shifter and dropper cables, while the rear brake is routed externally. Other details include a threaded 73mm bottom bracket shell, ISCG '05 chainguide tabs, and 12x148mm boost rear dropout spacing.

The Throttle frame is backed by Transition's 2-year manufacturer warranty.
