Product Info

The Transition Smuggler GX evo Complete Mountain Bike is guaranteed to change your perception of big-wheeled ponies. An aggressive geometry highlighted by the 67.5° head angle lends confidence to the descent while the 29-inch wheels and award winning Giddy Up suspension design work in unison to smooth out rocks and roots. A monster truck with great traction that can also mach through berms and scrub jumps like a more traditional trail bike, the Transition Smuggler GX evo Complete Mountain Bike is a spicy singletrack connoisseur that's waiting for you to saddle up and drop the hammer. Decked out with a cutting-edge GX Eagle™ drivetrain and RockShox suspension build that's exclusive to evo, we wouldn't blame you if you're already fantasizing about smuggling this bad boy out to your local trails.

Aluminum Welded Frame

Progressive GeometryLong, low and slack.

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.

The chassis is lean while maintaining the durability and adjustability needed to bite off huge chunks of burly trail action and epic cross country.

RockShox Pike RCT3It is the new-school all-mountain and enduro riders’ weapon of choice. It has received critical acclaim by the global mountain-bike media. It came out of the box and marched its way to an Enduro World Series overall title. And with good reason. PIKE was engineered to provide the plushest, most high-performance ride quality imaginable. Its Charger Damper with Rapid Recovery keeps you riding high in the travel, where the feel is plushest, and maintains your bike’s natural geometry. Its stiffness to weight to travel ratios are unbeatable, meaning you get a lot more from a lot less. Better control from fewer and more intuitive rider inputs allow you to charge harder. Which equals time and energy for more laps. If all-mountain riding and enduro racing is how you describe a good day in the saddle, then PIKE should be on your ride.

Wheel Set
