Product Info

Gone are the days of 29 "dad" whips that handle like Grand Pappy's Studebaker. The Transition Sentinel NX Complete Mountain Bike is more like the red Firebird that's here to steal your girlfriend - ready to dispel any lingering notion you've had of the traditional 29er. Slangin' Transition s all-new Speed Balanced Geometry and burly front and rear bump eaters, the Sentinel provides that playful and snappy ride you've been looking for, but with all the 29er benefits like better rolling resistance and straight line speed. Transition also equips the Sentinel with their GiddyUp 2.0 suspension design for maximum pedaling efficiency without sacrificing gnar-shred support on descents. Serious performance meets over-the-top fun when you hop on the extremely progressive and powerful Transition Sentinel NX Complete Mountain Bike.

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 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. RockShox took the proven damping performance of their popular Monarch series and introduced it to a new metric-sized chassis. The result is truly Deluxe, ready to redefine your ride.

SRAM NX 1x X-SYNC™ CranksetThe SRAM NX crankset provides high performance at the right price. Featuring the SRAM engineered X-SYNC™ chainring, the NX crankset is engineered for complete chain control. Each tooth’s thickness is CNC machined to work seamlessly with the chain’s inner and outer links. Personalize your gearing with five available chainrings (30-32-34-36-38).

SRAM PG-1130 CassetteThe PG-1130 cassette is light, durable and equipped with SRAM’s super wide 11-42 gear range that’s a perfect fit for any ride. Personalize your wide range gearing with one of eight available X-SYNC™ chainrings.

SRAM NX 11-Speed X-ACTUATION™ Trigger ShifterThe SRAM NX trigger shifter with X-ACTUATION™ technology gives you sharp, dependable shifting. Built for precise and swift shifting across SRAM's wide range 11-speed cassette, the NX trigger shifter brings industry changing technology to everyone.

SRAM NX 1x11 X-HORIZON™ Rear DerailleurThe SRAM NX X-HORIZON™ rear derailleur provides the same smooth, reliable shifting action as XX1—from the larger upper pulley offset to the 12-tooth X-SYNC™ pulley wheels. By eliminating unwanted chain movement, X-HORIZON™ shifts faster, puts an end to ghost shifting and reduces shift force and chain slap. And with CAGE LOCK™ technology, wheel removal and installation are easier than ever.

SRAM PC-1110 ChainDesigned from a long line of dependable, lightweight chains that are built for toughness. Designed with SRAM’s trusted XX1 geometry, the PC-1110 features solid pin construction, 11-speed PowerLock® and smooth, efficient shifting that you can count on every time out.

Brakes

SRAM Level T Hydraulic Disc BrakesLevel T capitalizes on the same trail-taming brake technology that conquered the 2015 World Mountain Bike Championships, to deliver a powerful and consistent XC and trail-optimized brake set that keeps your capital in the bank. This budget-minded, MatchMaker™ compatible brake set provides all the power of its siblings, keeping you in complete control.

SRAM Centerline RotorsThe new 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

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!

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.

Additional Features

RaceFace Æffect Dropper SeatpostIntroducing the cable actuated, hydraulic cartridge Æffect Dropper Post, a budget friendly but rock solid option for riders wanting to enter the dropper market. A sealed damping system wrapped in 7075 aluminium makes for a lightweight dropper that can take the hits. Internal cable routing compatible for modern frame design.
