First spotted as a prototype under Tahnee Seagrave at Leogang, the all-new Transition TR11 DH bike is packs 195mm of rear wheel travel into a bike that cranks your gravity fueled riding to eleven. Built with a stiff but light full carbon frame, their GiddyUp geometry was tweaked for downhill riding. First developed for their trail bikes to give them big hit cush without sacrificing the “pop” we all love when throwing the bike around and over things, GiddyUp is the oh-so-technical name for their current suspension platform. Check the video for more. For the TR11, it’s tweaked for gravity, with a controlled ramp at the end to prevent hard bottom outs on the really big hucks to flat…
The TR11 gets a full carbon front triangle, seatstays and chainstay, with an aluminum rocker arm.
Claimed frame weight is 9lbs (4,100g) with Fox Factory DHX2 coil shock, all hardware, and their molded rubber chainstay and downtube protection installed. Cables run externally, it’s equipped with EnduroMax bearings and Collet-style main pivot hardware.
Two complete bike models will be offered, the XO1 DH build for $7,299 (with Fox 40 RC2 fork, Cane Creek headset, Race Face Atlas stem & bar and SixC carbon cranks, Thomson seatpost, SRAM Code RSC brakes and eThirteen LG1+ wheels) and GX1 DH for $5,299 (with Rockshox BoxxerRC, Race Face Chester bar & stem and Atlas cranks, Code R brakes, eThirteen LG1 rims on Joytech hubs).
It’s also available as a frameset with the shock for $3,199.
