With the introduction of Transition Patrol Carbon, customers will now have the option of a lighter version of the popular enduro bike. The Patrol is designed on two principals, fun and fast. Read all about the new bike here.
Transition is entirely convinced of their current aluminium Patrol. That’s why the new carbon version of the enduro bike features the exact same geometry and kinematics. However, the full carbon frame should save some weight without compromising durability. The Transition Patrol Carbon promises to be as tough as its aluminium counterpart.
The Transition Patrol Carbon will extend the Patrol range by three further models. The entry into Transition’s world of carbon will set you back $4,199. For the top-end Patrol Carbon X01, you’ll have to fork out $5,999. All Patrol Carbon models should be available in September. There is bad news for particularly young or otherwise small riders. The Patrol Carbon will not be available in XS. You’ll have to resort to the aluminium version in that case.

New colours for all Transition bikes
In addition to the new Patrol Carbon, Transition has also introduced new frame colours in a matt but slightly glossy look. We love the new colours and didn’t want to keep this red Transition Sentinel from you.
