Transition Sentinel

Transition Sentinel X01 | 160 mm / 140 mm (front / rear) | 29″ wheels | $ 4999

The new Transition Sentinel has been completely revised and brought up to date. Now the thoroughbred 29er enduro bike comes with wider dropouts for Boost hubs, bosses for a water bottle cage and the new Speed Balanced Geometry, SBG for short. This new geometry concept was developed over two years and is meant to offer unrivalled handling characteristics. The most striking feature is the reduced fork offset, which should generate more traction on the front wheel. But also the 64° steering angle and the 475 mm of reach is anything but average, this bike wants rough terrain. Thanks to the steep seat tube angle, the Sentinel should also climb well, and a short 40 mm stem compensates for the long reach to some extent. Besides the Sentinel, the Patrol, the Scout and the Smuggler have also been updated with Speed Balanced Geometry.

Trunnion mount: the Sentinel is up-to-date, coming supplied with the latest shock tech.
160 mm of travel with 29" wheels doesn't only look huge, it is huge!
