Introducing the New Carbon Sentinel MTB Bike from Transition

Introducing the New Carbon Sentinel MTB Bike from Transition
Transition Bikes (USA) – Press Release: The Sentinel was designed for 29er skeptics. A bike so capable, playful and fun that even the most staunch 29er naysayer will instantly convert. With our reverse mullet suspension configuration, the Sentinel stays responsive and playful while delivering incredible downhill monster truck capabilities. Our Speed Balanced Geometry is the crown jewel that unlocks 100% of the potential of this bike. With SBG you get improved climbing and cornering traction along with incredible composure and control that won't flinch when you open it up on steep, fast, technical descents.

Speed Balanced Geometry:

SBG ensures the bike maintains low speed agility, front wheel traction, and proper rider weight balance while actually increasing confidence in steep terrain and at high speeds. With SBG, a slacker head tube angle is combined with a all new reduced offset fork standard, preventing the front wheel from being too far in front of the rider. This improves front to rear weight distribution on the bike, which is often out of balance on long and slack bikes. One of SBG's greatest benefits is that it creates a confident steering feel that adapts to wheel speed. More stability when going fast, more agility on technical slow speed manuevering as well as improved traction, control and confidence for any skill level of rider.
