Transition Smuggler frame 2018

Regular price £1,849.95 Sale

It is no surprise we love 29ers and the new Smuggler is our take on the perfect 29er trail bike. Just the right amount of travel front and rear to keep it responsive and fun but also aggressive for when the trail turns downright nasty. We know on a long ride that you can encounter just about every type of terrain and obstacle so we designed the Smuggler to not only adapt to trail conditions but downright own them. All this with tons of features that a class leading trail bike needs including our Speed Balanced Geometry. The Smuggler is not only ready for any adventure you can think of, it demands it.

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 manuevering as well as improved traction, control and confidence for any skill level of rider.


Now available in lower 44mm offset to suit transitions new optimised SBG geometry. To get the very most out of your new transition frame we highly recommend the use of an SBG specific offset fork to get the most out of your bike!


The 2016 Fox 34 FLOAT introduced the popular FIT4 damper, which provides three on-the-fly compression damping positions-Open, Medium, and Firm-allowing them to quickly adapt to undulating trail conditions. You'll be enthralled to know the 2018 34 FLOAT Performance Elite forks keeps the impressive FIT 4 damper, and adds the latest 15QR x 110 Boost axle option at a price that will leave some money in your wallet for post ride brews with your buds.

As it's largely the rowdy trail crowd who've come to love the beefed up 34mm stanchions, Fox dressed-up their 27.5 34 FLOAT fork for the occasion. The low weight and lockout of the FIT4 equate to more efficient climbing, while the FLOAT EVOL Air spring has been updated to be lighter and to react with more sensitivity, giving the rider a superior ride and exceptional control. Just like the Fox FLOAT EVOL rear shocks, this fork has a positive and negative spring that equalize automatically and can be fine-tuned with volume spacers for that ultimate, dialed-in feel.
