Transition Bikes 2012 are in!!!

2012 Transition Bandit
The Bandit is a true to form lightweight trail bike designed to rip up and down the mountain. We pushed the envelope of tube design and machining of frame parts to create a bike that absolutely floats through singletrack. Careful attention to pivot placement and leverage curves make the Bandit feel like a long travel bike on the descents and a XC race bike going up. Our goal was to create a trail bike that combined the ultimate uphill pedaling feel along with a playful spirit on the downhill that is a treat to throw around corners, bunny hop and pull the front end up over obstacles. The Bandit gets you the best of both worlds without having to compromise.

2011 Transition Covert
The Covert is our 6″ travel quiver-killing do-it-all bike. Ya, we know that there is no such thing as a do-it-all bike but the Covert is at the top of our lists if we could only have one bike. In the hands of a capable rider it can jump from a multitude of riding disciplines. The new frame sports a massive amount of refinements that perfectly balance weight and strength to give you the total package. Weighting in at a respectable 6.7 lbs without rear shock, and builds up to a 28-32 lb, this bike is made for efficient days in the saddle. At the core of the Covert is our completely new proprietary tubeset designed in house. The new tubes create a stronger frame with better contact points for welding shock mounts, pivots, and the headtube. The result is a great do-it-all package for the rider that demands their bike to do more.
