HeaderSections_Overview


The critically aclaimed Patrol gives you the control of a downhill bike perfectly balanced with a lively and jumpy personality for a comfortable, efficient and fun ride in any trail condition. The Patrol is long and low with a slack 65 degree head angle and big wheelbase for tremendous stability in rowdy terrain. But don’t let the numbers fool you; the short 430mm chainstay and 155mm of active and carefully tuned suspension keep you in touch with the ground and ready to respond at a moment’s notice. With the Patrol you get big mountain confidence with trail bike agility in the same machine. See for yourself why reviewers call it one the best bikes they have ever ridden and are very reluctant to send it back to us.

“Bottom line? In a few short rides, this bike had me hitting lines I had been afraid of all week and tearing up my old playbook that dictated I’d never own anything slacker than 67 degrees or longer than 45 inches, or that wasn’t carbon fiber. ”   – Bike Magazine (The Bible Reviews)  Click here for the full review

” The Cliff Notes version for those with A.D.D. is, holy shit! We’re so stoked a smaller brand has been able to benefit so greatly from the once patented Horst Link design and made it their own. Transition’s Patrol has made the rounds with the Decline testers, and we haven’t yet had someone come back without a smile of disbelief and ask if they could buy the bike after the test. You’ll have so much fun riding this bike you’ll swear it’s against the law. ”   – Decline Magazine   

” Pointed downhill the Patrol will bring a smile to your face. It excels in situations that coincide with its geometry, including those that are fast and rough. Surprisingly it’s quite agile on the jumps as well, and we had no issues throwing it around in the air or through tight turns. Stability is quite good at all times, allowing you to precisely pick your way down the trail.”   – VitalMTB.com Test Sessions   Click here for the full review

” Decline Magazine names the Patrol the 2015 All Mountain Bike Of The Year. ”   – Decline Magazine
