2018 Transition Patrol Alloy
Transitions Patrol has always been the go to bike for most customers. The 2018 Transition Patrol will probably be no different.
It may not look like it has drastically changed for 2018 but let me tell you its been redesigned from the ground up. New Giddy up Kinematics, Boost Spacing, Boost in Travel, Longer, Slacker which takes us on to their Speed Balance Geometry (SBG).
When you think about it, it makes so much sense. Bringing bikes into a whole new world of capability and riding, it’s really that good! Want to know more about SBG and what I’m talking about then click here and listen to Lars run you through it and how they come to it.
The transition has now boosted the 2018 Patrol to 170mm up front due to a lot of people preferring to run a 170mm Travel more than the recommended 160. It makes it even more of a charger, bigger hitting monster!
New rattle free internal cable port covers is a god send from Transition. Boost spacing for the 2018 Transition Patrol to offer a better dish on the wheel providing a stiffer and stronger wheel build.
Thinking of the consumer always and how you can get as much fun out of your bike as possible. The Transition has increased the seat post insertion for a better fit of a longer dropper post making the fit on their Patrol even better.
