Product Info

The Transition Scout Carbon XT Complete Mountain Bike is the kind of bike that reminds you just how much fun you can have on two wheels. It's nimble, lightweight, and easy to flick around. It has a mid-travel suspension that climbs well and loads up with pop to hit every jump you can find on the way down. It's playful to a T and once you're on it, you'll find yourself riding faster, looser, and goofier than ever before.

Product Details

Frame/Shock

All Carbon ConstructionFull carbon frame made from premium Japanese Toray fiber with a tailored blend of high quality materials to create a balance of frame stiffness, strength, and impact toughness. A new molding process makes for sharper frame lines and tighter edge radius controls with less wasted material.

Giddyup Suspension DesignThe GiddyUp suspension, featuring a one-piece flex stay rear triangle, is tuned to work correctly with inline style rear shocks and designed to provide a balanced feel with 120mm travel forks. Riders are able to add or remove volume spacers in the rear shock to suit their individual riding style and there is plenty of bottom out control for when things get rowdy. The Spur has 120mm of rear wheel travel when used with the supplied 190mm x 45mm stroke shock. It is also possible to install a shorter, 190mm x 37.5mm stroke shock, to reduce the rear wheel travel to 100mm if you are after a shorter travel experience.

Speed Balanced GeometrySBG 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 an 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 maneuvering as well as improved traction, control and confidence for any skill level of rider.

Fox Float X2 Performance Rear Shock -The award-winning, gravity-defying air shock is totally redesigned for 2021. With a laundry list of advanced features, the X2 is ready to clean house. This is the air shock that will help you say goodbye to coils.

Shock Adjustments2-Position Open / Firm Lever / Low-Speed Compression / High-Speed Compression / Low-Speed Rebound / High-Speed Rebound / Air Spring Pressure

Pivot TechnologyCollet main pivot technology improves rear end stiffness and keeps hardware tight. Bearing shields prevent main pivot contamination from water.

Frame ProtectionFully integrated, flush-mounted rubber frame protection on the chainstay and downtube keep your bike rides quiet and your frame safe from damage.

Badass BearingsEnduroMAX suspension pivot specific bearings come in standard sizes that are readily available worldwide.

Gear Accessory MountAn underside top-tube accessory mount allows you to carry a spare tube or other goodies safely on your frame.

Mega Seatpost InsertionDropper posts keep getting longer so Transition combined short seat tube lengths with mega seatpost insertion to help get your saddle completely out of the way.

Tire ClearanceAmple clearance for mud and tires up to 2.6" wide.

User Friendly Cable RoutingTo simplify maintenance and keep your bike noise free, the rear derailleur cable is routed through guide tubes in the front triangle and chainstay.

Threaded Bottom BracketA standard 73mm threaded bottom bracket shell makes crankset maintenance hassle-free and prevents unwanted pressfit BB noises.

Press In HeadsetThe ZS44/ZS56 press in headset fives you the freedom to use angle adjust headsets if you feel the need to make your bike a touch slacker or steeper.

Water Bottle CompatibilityYour water bottle is kept clean inside the front triangle so you can keep hydrated without worrying about mud making it to your mouth.

Fork

Fox 36 Float PerformancePerformance forks retain the same black anodized 7000 series aluminum upper tubes as Performance Elite, but have a different damper (FIT GRIP) with fewer adjustments.

Wheelset

Maxxis Assegai Front TireThe Maxxis Assegai tire is named after the iron-tipped spear used by the Zulu people of South Africa. Greg Minnaar, a native of South Africa, thought it was a fitting name for a tire ready to do battle on the mountain. The tall knobs punch through dust and loam to find traction, but also offer support and confidence on wet roots and rocks. While other tires excel only in certain conditions, the new Maxxis Assegai is built to go fast everywhere.

Maxxis Minion DHR II Rear TireWith side knobs borrowed from the legendary Minion DHF, but widened to provide more support, the DHR II corners like no other. The center tread features ramped leading edges to improve acceleration and sipes to create a smooth transition when leaning the bike. Paddle-like knobs on the center tread dig in under hard braking and help keep the bike under control. Pair it with a Minion DHF up front for the ultimate aggressive trail riding tire combo!

Additional Features
