THE TRUSTY TOOL FOR ANY TRAIL

Like the reliable tool you grab for every job, the Smuggler is the go-to bike for any trail pointed up, down, and all around. With dual 29 inch wheels, 130mm rear and 140mm front travel, the Smuggler may just be the most versatile bike in our lineup. A highly progressive leverage curve and comfortable, confidence-inspiring geo make it eager to keep going mile after mile while remaining surefooted in even the most technical terrain. Sitting squarely between the Spur and Sentinel in travel, geometry, and capability, it shares qualities of both. Inspiring and rewarding to hammer on your favorite singletrack, while never holding you back when the trail gets steep, the Smuggler will make sure you enjoy it all.

INSPIRATION AND PERSONALITY

The Smuggler has been one of the most anticipated reincarnations of a previous model within the walls of Transition. We have plenty of aggressive terrain around our headquarters that is more suited to the Spire, Patrol, or Sentinel, yet there’s been a lot of internal buzz about this generation Smuggler. It’s not all downhill in the PNW; there’s plenty of singletrack, technical trail, and meandering connective routes. The Smuggler is perfect for a day when your path comes across all of the above. We went into the Smuggler project with the intention of creating a bike that had the quick and high-energy feel of the Spur, but with a bit more travel front and rear. What we ended up with was a perfect blend of the Spur and Sentinel in geometry, travel, capability, and weight. The kinematics are similar to the Spur with a little over 27% progression. This provides a bottomless feel in a mid-travel package. Paired with the Fox Float X shock, the Smuggler can be set up to suit any rider’s preference. Looking to increase rear travel? Simply remove the travel reducer in the shock to bump the travel up to 140mm. Looking for a bit more progression? Just add a larger volume spacer. All of this equates to a super lively, active, and forgiving rear suspension feel in any terrain.

FRAME DESIGN EVOLUTION

The Smuggler exhibits a few frame design features not found in our other bikes. The most notable are the headtube aesthetics, along with better functionality and serviceability. The new headtube has integrated bearing cups and no longer needs headset cups pressed into the frame. This allows the frame to have super clean cable ports at the front of the headtube with fully guided internal cable routing from the headtube to the port above the bottom bracket shell. From there, cables cleanly enter the rear triangle hidden from view.
