Giddy Up Suspension SystemWhen Transition set out to design the new family of trail bikes, they wanted to improve their suspension bike pedaling performance, but didn't want to lose the neutral and comfortable feel that Transition Bikes are known for. No one at Transition wanted a suspension system that felt like it was locking out, or provided any "kick back" in the pedals. Their Giddy Up link is specifically tuned with a moderate amount of chain growth which is highest at the sag point and decreasing deeper into the travel. Because of this finely tuned wheel path, the new models have a notable increase in traction when climbing, without the rider noticing the chain growth fighting the suspension movement. The ride feel of Giddy Up Link bikes will be familiar for any previous Transition rider, but with a big improvement in suspension performance. Their new models are designed to be active while climbing; increased compression damping or rear shock platforms are not required with the Giddy Up link. The suspension remains free to smooth out the trail, improve traction and control without sacrificing any efficiency. There is no need to think about flipping switches; start your ride with the shock open and leave it there. With Giddy Up you can focus on the trail, not your remotes, levers or knobs. Just grab your bike, Giddy Up and go.

RockShox Super Deluxe RC3The directive was simple. Engineer a shock that does for rear-suspension performance what Pike did for forks. Simple? Don’t bet on it. A gamble? Absolutely. It required a complete change in the way RockShox approaches shock design. It meant focusing on performance first and leaving old constraints behind. And it gave RockShox a clear path to develop the world’s lowest-friction shock — Super Deluxe. Metric sizing gives Super Deluxe significantly increased bushing overlap, which, together with a sophisticated new bushing profile, virtually eliminates friction in the shock. A new damper holds the shock high in its stroke and offers unparalleled traction. Unshackled from the old obstacles of shock design, Super Deluxe is free to tackle new ones — on the trail. This changes everything.

RockShox Lyrik RC Solo AirWith a completely new chassis, featuring tapered legs and a taller brace for stiffness and light weight, and a collection of new technologies such as a re-tuned Solo Air spring with additional negative volume for a plusher initial stroke, Bottomless Token tunability in both Solo Air and Dual Position Air configurations, SKF wiper seals for lower friction and better sealing, and user tunable rebound damping via internal shims (same as BoXXer), Lyrik is built to inspire confidence and blur the lines of capability that limit all other forks in its class. Proven features include 35mm Fast Black upper tubes and an RC Charger Damper with a new SKF cartridge seal to reduce friction and extended service intervals.

Brakes

SRAM Guide R Hydrualic Disc BrakesWhat’s it going to take to ride that line? It’s steep. It’s rocky. You’ve passed it a hundred times. But not this time.

Wheel Set

Maxxis Minion DHF EXO Dual | Front TireThe Minion DHF was designed for the often loose and muddy conditions of aggressive all-mountain terrain. The DHF incorporates ramped knobs for low rolling resistance and channel-cut knobs to increase gripping edges, giving straight-line control and precise cornering.

Maxxis Minion DHR II EXO Dual | Rear TireThe trail version of the Maxxis Minion DHR II features the same tread pattern as its downhill counterpart, but uses a single-ply casing to reduce weight. With side knobs borrowed from the legendary Minion DHF, but widened to provide more support, the DHR II corners like no other. The center tread features ramped knobs to improve acceleration and sipes to create a smooth transition when leaning the bike. Paddle-like knobs on the center tread dig in under hard braking and help keep the bike under control. Pair it with a Minion DHF up front for the ultimate aggressive trail riding tire combo!
