Product Info

Whether you're deep behind enemy lines, poking around for who knows what, or charging down a familiar jump line, the Transition Scout Carbon GX Complete Mountain Bike is the one to ride when you expect to be out front. With a perfect amount of do-anything travel, this is a bike that'll take anything in stride. The GX drivetrain is solid, to be sure, but there's no better suspension setup on a mid-travel bike in the market. With proven progressive geo and a carbon frame built for speed and durability, this Scout is ready for duty.

Product Details

Frame/Shock

Carbon Fiber Frame

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.

RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate ShockDesigned for the latest hard-hitting enduro and trail bikes, Super Deluxe Ultimate features the ride tuning abilities of an air spring with both compression and rebound adjustment to fine tune to any trail. With a solid threshold adjustment for pedaling performance and Maxima Plush fluid for a buttery smooth feel, riders can now easily dial in a podium-worthy ride.

Drive Train

SRAM GX EagleGX Eagle is your partner for all rides, all the time, all day. Long days, quick rides and everything in-between, GX Eagle is the ecosystem at its best. With the all new 520% range, all new colorways and seamless compatibility with the rest of the ecosystem, GX Eagle is there to maximize the potential of your ride experience.

Brakes

SRAM Code RSC BrakesetCode RSC is built from the elements that made Guide a benchmark in contemporary brake design and performance, and delivers an extra 15% power to shine in all heavy duty applications. SwingLinkâ„¢ and Lever Pivot Bearings ensure a smooth and progressive feel at the lever, while the additional 30% positive fluid volume ensures consistent performance even when braking harder, more frequently or with a heavier mass to slow down.

Avid CenterLine RotorsThe CenterLine design provides a smooth, consistent, and quiet running braking surface. Rounded edges make for easier wheel installs and are UCI-compliant.

Wheel Set

Stan's NoTubes Flow S1 WheelsetBurly enough to handle the toughest of trails yet light enough to pedal all day, the Flow S1 is up for any challenge. Developed from rims ridden in Red Bull Rampage and raced on the World Cup DH circuit for years, the S1 is now ready for action. With a 1.6mm deeper profile and reinforced rim walls the new Flow S1 offers greater impact strength, for an even wider range of use, with only a minor weight gain. Strong and light 6061 alloy rims, stainless steel rim eyelets, and easily replaceable standard spokes mean the Flow S1 is built to last. Combined with faster-engaging, CNC-machined Neo hubs, the Flow S1 is the ultimate trail, all-mountain, and enduro wheelset.

Maxxis Assegai Front TireThe Maxxis Assegai tire is named after the iron-tipped spear used by the Zulu people of South Africa. Greg Minnaar, a native of South Africa, thought it was a fitting name for a tire ready to do battle on the mountain. The tall knobs punch through dust and loam to find traction, but also offer support and confidence on wet roots and rocks. While other tires excel only in certain conditions, the new Maxxis Assegai is built to go fast everywhere.

Maxxis Minion DHR II Rear TireWith 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 leading edges 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!
