2017 Transition Smuggler
2017 Transition Smuggler
With the advent of slack 29ers like the Transition Smuggler 4 Complete Mountain Bike, we think it's safe to say that these big-wheeled trail terrors are here to stay. Combining the benefits of its larger 29" wheels (i.e. smoother rollover, better traction and improved efficiency per stroke) with an efficient and versatile SRAM NX 1x11 drivetrain and suspended by Transition s award winning Giddy Up suspension system, the Transition Smuggler 4 Bike achieves a ride that gallops on the way up and hauls ass on the way down. Worried about the Smuggler's reduced travel? Rest assured the monster truck-like wheels more than make up for it -- this pedal pony is a true trail talent.
Aluminum Welded Frame
Progressive Geometry – Long, low and slack.
Giddy Up Suspension System – When 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.

SRAM NX 1x11 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 NX Crankset – The 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 NX PG-1130 Cassette – The 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 DB5 Brakes – Calm, cool and collected. The SRAM DB5 is a no-nonsense champion for mountain bikers who want to ride bigger, steeper and harder, but who also want money left over to get there. DirectLink™ lever technology puts positive brake feel at your fingertips while the large-volume reservoir and proven two-piston design provide plenty of control when you need it.
SRAM Centerline Rotors – The new Centerline Rotor was designed to keep the center of friction consistent throughout rotation thereby minimizing vibration offering consistent performance and a quiet ride.
Maxxis Minion DHF EXO Dual | Front Tire – The 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 Tire – The 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!
KS eTen Integra Dropper Seatpost – The all new eTen is a revelation in value priced performance. Based on an air spring, hydraulically locked cartridge system, the eTen has features that surpass rival posts at twice the price.
