2018 Transition Patrol

All new for 2018, the Transition Patrol features Speed Balanced Geometry (SBG). It's the first acronym from Transition that's actually serious in its nature. SBG is a combination of design ideas aiming to further improve the already impressive ride characteristics that Transition are known for. Longer reach, increased wheelbase, slacker head angle and steeper seat tube angles have all been part of the trend in bike design over the last few years. With SBG Transition have pushed the limits even further but compensated for it in an important and unique way, by using reduced fork offset and shorter stems. The point is to increase stability and confidence at high speeds without sacrificing low speed agility or traction. The important thing to note is that whilst the sizing on paper may look a lot bigger that the previous years, if you rode a large frame before, you still ride a large frame now. Likewise for the other sizes.

All new range for 2018 featuring Speed Balanced Geometry. A simple idea; reduced fork offset and stem length countered by an increased reach and a steeper seat tube angle. The resulting affect on stability and handling is dramatic. If you have ever ridden a short offset fork you'll have some idea what it will feel like, but, to truly understand the difference that Transition have engineered into their 2018 range, they have to be ridden. Good job we have demo bikes!
