2018 Sentinel

The big-hitter 29er


Bicycles are an amazing vehicle with a fascinating mix of physics and black magic behind their behaviour. The way the human body interacts with the bicycle creates a nearly infinite range of variables that are virtually impossible to quantify on paper. Why should modern mountain bicycle geometry be based on a limiting set of parameters from the past? Transition took that thought and began testing an extensive array of bike setup, fit and geometry. They found that by incorporating a frame with a longer reach, shorter stem, slacker head tube angle, and a fork with a reduced offset, it is possible to utilise all of the benefits of these geo changes while actually improving the rider’s weight balance at the same time. This leads to improved front wheel grip, increased braking traction, and intuitive cornering. The Sentinel is Transition’s long travel 29er, new for 2018.
