Description The Smuggler takes the 29er in a new direction with a short travel platform that isn't short on versatility and has critics calling it one of the top mountain bikes of 2016. Aggressive geometry with a slack 67.5 head angle and roomy cockpit let you push the bike hard while the 29 wheels smooth out rough terrain. The short 435mm chainstay and 115mm of progressive suspension keep the bike agile, responsive and playful for maximum fun on whatever trail you choose.

"The Smuggler takes the benefits of the larger 29" wheels (increased grip, traction and rollover) and adds nimble and agile handling along with an urgency not often felt on longer travel bikes.

If singletrack with 'a dash of tech' is your thing and you like to get the hammer down, you need to ride this bike. The Smuggler devours testing terrain, whether up, across or down. We found ourselves riding faster and further, adding in that extra loop, chasing fading daylight." - Dirt Magazine
" With the shock wide open, bombing down very rocky runs like Geronimo on Phoenix's South Mountain was a blast. We were able to easily lift the bike and place it where we needed it to be, and the larger diameter wheels took away a large degree of the harshness from the boulders strewn across the trail. It was as if we were riding a 140-150mm travel 650b wheeled sled, and the comfortable geometry kept us at ease when poor line choice would otherwise get us into trouble. The bike's ability to get our testers out of these moments unscathed was inspiring. Sitting a little deeper into the shock than normal gives the bike plenty of control and small to medium bump compliance, and only through the rowdiest chunk, big hucks, and large compressions are you really reminded that you're on a "little" bike." - Vitalmtb.com Test Sessions
" It was an all-day marathon machine that turned technical climbs into wheelchair ramps. The Smuggler packs a 130mm pike up front, and has Transition's reputation for shredding behind it. So we climbed into the saddle with guns blazing and none was disappointed. It wasn't as simple as just calling it 'lively' or 'playful.' The relatively slack front end and soft rear end devoured the loose, mid-sized chop covering our trails, keeping the tires on the ground through the twisting chutes that send similar bikes sliding." - Bike Magazine, The Bible of Tests Click here for the full review
" I probably flew downhill faster than on any 29er with comparable travel. And there's no way to quantify it, but I certainly had more fun. " - Bicycling Magazine
