Product Info

Like bringing a carbon fiber howitzer to a knife fight, the Transition Sentinel Carbon NX Complete Mountain Bike is abundantly rad. Starting at the back, the Sentinel has wide and rigid Boost-148 spacing paired to 140mm's of RockShox cushion with refined Giddyup 2.OHHH suspension. Up front, the hefty RockShox Yari RC spearheads your good times from ascent to descent. Finely tuned like a beautiful guitar, the Transition Sentinel Carbon NX Complete Mountain Bike features a tailored Speed Balanced design that harnesses every pedal stroke of its 29" wheels and its legendary SRAM 12-speed drivetrain. All this creates a rowdy ride that's sure to draw out anyone's inner mullet - whether it's long days of up and down or steep and loamy descents.

Product Details

Frame/Shock

Carbon Fiber Frame with 140mm Rear Travel

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.

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.

RockShox Deluxe RTHow do you improve on the success of a rear shock that has received critical acclaim for its stellar performance and supple feel? It’s simple. You rewrite the rules, throw existing design constraints out the window, and focus solely on the best possible performance solution. We took the proven damping performance of our popular Monarch series and introduced it to our new metric-sized chassis. The result is truly Deluxe, ready to redefine your ride.

Brakes

SRAM Guide T BrakesetGuide T brings the consistent performance that you have come to expect from SRAM's lightweight Guide four-piston caliper. Pair this with MatchMaker™ for a clean looking bar set-up, plus the ease of use with the Bleeding Edge™ drip-free bleed port and you have a smart budget minded brake that keeps you in control.

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.

Wheel Set

WTB STi29 Rims with Novatec HubsAt 29mm internal width, these aluminum alloy wheels have 32 spokes. They're built for hard abuse on the trail, an nice mix of light weight, stiffness, and ride quality.

Maxxis 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! The Minion DHF is available in trail, enduro, and downhill specs.

Maxxis Minion DHF Front TireWith a tread design that deftly balances rolling speed with braking and cornering traction, it's hard to find fault with the Minion DHF. That's probably why it's one of the most imitated tires in mountain biking. Whether riding local trails, a backcountry epic, racing enduro or World Cup downhill, there's a Minion DHF spec to meet your needs. The Minion DHF is available in trail, enduro, and downhill specs.
