Transition Launches the TR11 Downhill Bike

Fresh off of a recent win under Tahnee Seagrave, the Transition TR11 is no longer something that we’ll be guessing about. After 3 years of development, its vitals are all public and listed below. As an overview, it’s carbon fiber front and rear with 195mm of travel via a single main pivot with a horst link and a bell crank style linkage driving the rear shock to provide a nice progressive rate. Per usual with Transition it has some smart, unique features. Read on for the full details below and don’t forget to check out their Spinal Tap spoof video.
