2018 Smuggler

SBG (Speed Balanced Geometry):

It is no surprise Transition loves 29ers and the new Smuggler is their 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. They know on a long ride that you can encounter just about every type of terrain and obstacle so Transition designed the Smuggler to not only adapt to trail conditions but downright own them. Speed Balanced Geometry is the final touch designed to maintain traction and control on the way up while keeping you composed and confident on ultra technical descents.

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.
