Product Info

Billed as "the mountain biker's ebike," the Transition Relay Carbon GX E-Mountain Bike is a huge step forward in bike technology. As an ebike, it's a lightweight and nimble mid-power (60Nm) go-anywhere ripper, with the the aggressive geo and excellent ride quality you'd expect from a Transition. But, when you take the battery out, you can still pedal it. Yeah, that's right, it really is two great bikes in one, convertible between lightweight eeb and traditional enduro bike. Further still, the frame allows for tinkering with setup as well, with the ability to take air or coil shocks, 160 or 170mm travel, and/or mixed wheel sizing. There are like a half dozen dream bikes here, one for pretty much anything you're into. There's never been a better time to be a mountain biker: get on it!

Product Details


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.

Fox Float X Performance Rear ShockDesigned specifically to meet the demands of aggressive trail riders, the new Float X combines sophisticated damping and fade free performance with incredible light weight and outstanding structural integrity.

Drive Unit / Battery

Fazua Ride 60 MotorThe lightweight 60Nm Fazua Ride60 drive unit weighs 4.3lb/1.96kg. The minimal drag and power to weight ratio provide the magic when not riding with power. As you begin to ride beyond the speed cutoff you're not penalized when continuing to push beyond the assistance like that of traditional eMTBs. The 430Wh battery, 60Nm torque, 250Wh continuous power, 450Wh peak power, and overall bike weight work harmoniously together. This all equates to an experience that exceeds what you might expect from its numbers.

Fazua Ride 60 BatteryThe 430Wh battery weighs 4.85lb/2.2kg. It is easily removable via the tool free battery door underneath the downtube. The battery is charged off the bike, which is a bonus for customers with challenging bike storage and charging situations. The tool free battery door makes this hassle free, and it greatly simplifies the frame and door interface making it lighter and more durable.


Fox Float 36 PerformanceFor MY23 the Fox 36 receives an update in the form of a new crown with updated design and engineering for more steer tube overlap improving durability and maintaining stiffness while dropping 20 grams. This champion trail fork is lighter, smoother, stiffer, and more tunable than ever before.
