We absolutely love the Smuggler, owning one of the first to land as a staff bike and demos since launch we were REALLY keen to see the updated 2018 version and weren’t disappointed. SBG brings a new level of stability into an already very capable package meaning this is one of the most practical hard charging short travel 29ers around. Transition say:

“We absolutely love 29er trail bikes and the Smuggler is our vision of the perfect do-it-all trail bike. Just the right amount of travel front and rear to keep it responsive and fun but also aggressive for when the trail turns downright nasty. We know on a long ride that you can encounter just about every type of terrain and obstacle, so we designed the Smuggler to not only adapt to trail conditions but downright own them. Our Speed Balanced Geometry is the final touch designed to maintain traction and control on the way up while keeping you composed and confident on ultra technical descents.”

“Transition trail bikes have become known for their aggressive, descending-oriented handling and the Smuggler rings true in that regard. Simply get the Smuggler up to speed and it charges through rough terrain with the stability and ease of a bike with considerably more travel.” – THE BIKE BIBLE REVIEW
