For the summer season we were lucky enough to be sent a Transition Patrol Carbon to test at our Punta Ala test base. The idea is for us to use it as a base frame for some of the parts we’ll be testing over the next few months.
For the first parts build we wanted to take an entry level approach and test some parts that have seen little coverage so far, including SRAM’s NX 11 speed 1X drive train, and their entry level “Level” brakes.
We have mounted a Renthal 35mm cockpit and will be trying different combinations within their line.
Suspension for our first tests has been supplied by Rockshox with a Pike on the front with one token installed, and a Monarch+ RC3 on the back which came with the frame.
Our rolling parts are taken care of by SRAM Rail 40 wheels and Michelin Enduro tyres the Wild Rock’r and Wild Grip’r in 2.3″ widths. The idea was to go for a entry level wheel set that puts the magical weight : price : strength ratio at the forefront.
Lastly we installed a 170mm travel Reverb seat post that fits perfectly through the frame’s internal routing.
