Product Info

The Transition Smuggler Carbon GX AXS Complete Mountain Bike builds on the high-energy platform laid by its predecessor. This new Smuggler is more capable than ever, a mid-travel trail bike that can conquer a lot of "enduro" tracks you'll encounter. It shines all day long, and not just on the strictly downhill or climbing bits. Approaches, traverses, and traveling trails can be fun too: the Smuggler gets it done! This carbon build adds a whole new level of durability with SRAM's direct-mount GX AXS T-Type drivetrain, a marvelous piece of engineering with unprecedented toughness.

Key Features

Carbon Fiber FrameLightweight and incredibly strong, Transition's carbon framesets are known for durability and versatility.

Travel140mm Front / 130mm Rear

Wheel Size29"

Speed Balanced GeometrySBG 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 an 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 maneuvering as well as improved traction, control and confidence for any skill level of rider.

GiddyUp SuspensionA wide usable sag range of 25 - 35% allows the rider to tune the feel of the bike; from firm and snappy, to more supple and active. Wherever you end up, you can focus on the trail without remotes, levers or knobs. Just grab your bike and GiddyUp.

Progressive KinematicsWith a little over 27% progression through its travel, this bike gives an almost bottomless feel in a mid-travel package. Its 130mm of rear travel can easily be upped to 140mm, and it's even compatible with a coil shock.

Universal Derailleur HangerSRAM's Universal Derailleur Hanger is available at almost every bike shop, should something go wrong.
