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.

Product Details


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

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.

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 Elite 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.

Shock AdjustmentsAir Spring Pressure / 2-Position Open/Firm Lever / Rebound

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.

Drive Train

SRAM GX Eagle AXS TransmissionThe next generation SRAM Eagle Transmission is a radically robust, fully integrated and interdependent wireless drivetrain. Built around the universal constant of the wheel axle itself, the Full Mount hangerless attachment creates a far stronger connection to the frame with a super tough derailleur. Shifting under load is made possible due to a combination of X-SYNC technology and cassette mapping, creating seamless shifts even during your hardest power output. The new AXS Pods are extremely ergonomic and highly customizable, so shifting gears is light and intuitive.


SRAM Code Silver StealthSRAM's legendary, full-powered brake now features a new technology to improve your cockpit aesthetic: Stealth. The all-new lever body design brings the hose closer to the bar, allowing for a sleeker, more modern ride. The proven internals remain the same, with SwingLink driving SRAM's signature feel. And for unrivaled ease of customization, Code Silver features tool-free Reach and Contact Point Adjust. Confidence is king, and Code reigns supreme

SRAM Centerline RotorsThe Centerline rotor was designed to keep the center of friction consistent throughout rotation, thereby minimizing vibration, offering consistent performance and a quiet ride.


Race Face Aeffect RAggressive with a downright surly attitude, the new Aeffect R wheelset was built to provide you category leading Trail to Enduro good times with a 30mm wide, offset 6069 alloy rim and new Trace hub to make for an unstoppable combo of toughness and durability.

Maxxis Assegai Front TireGreg Minnaar’s signature tire – the Maxxis Assegai – provides tenacious, predictable grip across the entire profile no matter the lean angle. The Assegai can be used front and rear for a surefooted feel or as a front paired with a faster rolling rear tire.

Maxxis Dissector Rear TireDesigned in conjunction with Aussie DH racer Troy Brosnan, the Dissector seeks to minimize drag while retaining cornering control. This versatile tire can be used as a front, a pair, or as a rear depending on trail conditions.

Additional Features
