Product Info

After being dubbed "Mountain Bike of the Year" just last year, the 2018 Transition Patrol GX Complete Mountain Bike needed little refinement. Yet being the tinkerers that they are, the team at Transition has further evolved the Patrol to continue pushing the boundaries of possibility on a long travel trail bike. Incorporating revolutionary new Speed Balanced Geometry (SBG), this year's Patrol boasts even more control, even more confidence, and even more party! To do this, Transition combines a slacker head tube angle with a new, reduced-offset fork standard -- it may sound minute, but the difference translates to a significantly more intuitive riding experience. Top this bad boy off with the cutting-edge 1x12 gearing of a SRAM GX Eagle™ groupset and we can guarantee that the powerful, versatile Transition Patrol GX Complete Mountain Bike will completely evolve the way you look at trails.

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.

GiddyUp 2.0HH SuspensionBuilding upon the success of Transition's original GiddyUp suspension design, the new GiddyUp 2.0HH system has been refined for the modern two-wheel cowboy delivering a slightly firmer feel for more efficient pedaling, as well as more progressive travel that provides that extra little bit of bottom-out support when needed.

Fox DPX2 Performance Elite ShockCombining DPS XC efficiency and X2 DH performance, the DPX2 is the ultimate trail shock. The Dual Piston Base Valve has dedicated compression and lockout circuits for each of the three modes -- Open, Medium, and Firm. It also features a recirculating damper design found in X2 shocks, creating excellent small bump sensitivity, great mid-stroke damping support, and better control in transitions.

RockShox Lyrik RC Solo Air ForkWith 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.

Drive Train

SRAM GX Eagle™ ShiftersThe challeneges of riding a mountain bike should be kept to roots, rocks, mud, trees, jumps, drops and breathing. Putting total control of your gear selection into the thumb of one hand, it's simple to find the right gear, right now. The GX Eagle™ trigger shifter is the control center of the Eagle™ drivetrain. Its internal works have been updated to include a 12th gear, and improved to enhance trigger feel, precision and durability.

SRAM GX Eagle™ DerailleurThis new GX derailleur not only answers the Eagle™ drivetrain's need for greater capacity, but it's also the next evolution of SRAM's proven, 1x-specific X-HORIZON™ design. The larger, 14-tooth X-SYNC™ lower pulley allows for a 10- to 50-tooth cassette, and also adds to Eagle's overall smooth-pedaling feel. SRAM's new Type-3 ROLLER BEARING CLUTCH™ features a smoother operation and feel. CAGE LOCK™ has been moved back and out of the way, protecting it from trail debris. And a redesigned, robust mounting system further improves the Eagle™ derailleur's performance and overall durability.

SRAM XG 1275 Eagle™ CassetteRide anywhere with this wide range XG-1275, 10- to 50-tooth Eagle cassette that provides the right gear. Fast on the flats. Control on the climbs. Dictate your own pace, anywhere. Only Eagle™ technology is the 1x drivetrain engineered for infinite freedom. FULL PIN technology uses lightweight, stamped steel cogs held together with high-strength stainless steel pins. The result: a cassette that's light and strong. The open design similar to SRAM's X-DOME™ cassette aids in mud clearance, giving you cleaner shifting performance and longer component life. New X-GLIDE™2 improves both inboard and outboard shifting, as well as chain retention.

SRAM Descendant 6K CranksetThe Descendant 6K crankset delivers consistent performance every time out. Featuring SRAM's X-SYNC™2 tooth profile chainring, the Descendant crankset is engineered for complete chain control. Each tooth's thickness is precisely toleranced and controlled to work seamlessly with the SRAM chain's inner and outer links.

SRAM GX Eagle™ ChainThe GX Eagle™ chain is designed with SRAM's Eagle™ geometry and features solid pin construction, Eagle™ PowerLock® and smooth, efficient shifting that you can count on every time out.


SRAM Code R Hydraulic Disc BrakesetSleek, easy to use, yet immensely powerful. Code R packs a winning punch with a reliable DirectLink™ lever mated to Code's new oversized four-piston caliper. SRAM's signature ergonomics are supplemented by the tool-free reach adjust for a fit to each riders' needs, to unleash Code's superior braking, power, consistency and modulation.

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!

Additional Features

RockShox Reverb Stealth Dropper SeatpostDon’t let its familiar good looks fool you—Reverb is a whole new weapon. Its internals have been completely re-engineered to improve on its already legendary performance and to offer enhanced reliability: all the smallest details, down to the single seal, have been re-evaluated and updated to pass the hardest and longest durability tests. Additional bushing overlap also improves performance over time, while new 150- and 170-millimeter travel options are available to tame even the gnarliest of descents. This is the brand-new Reverb, engineered for the next-generation mountain biker.
