Transition is a fantastic bike brand that we are proud to supply online here at Westbrook Cycles. It’s clear that the brand is led by mountain bike fanatics - with slogans and mantras such as ‘rider owned for life’ and ‘engineered to party’ At the centre of Transitions' business model, is building bikes that they would like to ride. Their bikes are designed to handle any trails you can throw, whilst also being reliable and tough enough to stand the test of time.
Their designs do not just build on existing mountain bike technology in a cool package, Transition has developed several unique designs and technologies which offer excellent performance on the trails, providing increased confidence and pace. Transition uses the very best alloy and carbon fibre materials on their bikes, and it’s clear, looking at and riding these bikes, that these bikes are not meant to be ridden gently - they are designed for tough and gnarly trails, that demand the most from the rider and the bike. Transition Bikes are, however, flattering, and they build confidence.
Transition Bike Technologies
Speed Balance Geometry is the first Transition Bike technology we will look at. This geometry provides confidence-inspiring performance, low-speed agility, plenty of front wheel grip traction and work on providing the optimal weight balance for the rider. The result is a bike that is incredibly fun and feels great on even the steepest, most technical trails. This geometry includes a slacker head tube angle and a new offset fork. This prevents the front wheel from being too far in front of the riding position. The result, which we have experienced first hand is a bike which handles well across both high and low-speed riding.
Giddyup Suspension design is as much about simplifying life out on the trails as it is about providing suspension performance. This active suspension design offers fantastic levels of pedalling performance with a fun feel that underpins the design of these bikes. Giddyup provides a complete stroke range, meaning that you can enjoy using the suspension without the fear of bottoming out as it’s active, when climbing - the suspension smooths out the trail without becoming inefficient. There are no knobs or levers, just jump on and ride.
