Transition Scout XT 12spd Carbon Mountain Bike 2021 Midnight Blue Information

Season : 2021

Brand : Transition


The 2021 Transition Scout will awaken your inner child. Manual here, scrub that, skid there, pedal up this. Its freedom to boost everything in sight, overshoot every landing without a care, mixed with nose bonking and hooting your way down the trail. Sporty, but just as eager to tackle bigger terrain. The Scout's trail charisma is infectious and will cause you to look at your regular trails through a new perspective. Pedal up and repeat.

Full Carbon frame made from premium japanese Toray fibre with a tailored blend of 24T and 30T materials to create the right balance of frame stifness, strength and impact toughness. With unique latex coated EPS molding process, it allows for sharper frame lines and tighter edge radius control with maximum strength to weight ratio and less wasted material.

Collet main pivot technology improves rear end stifness and keeps your pivot hardware tight. Additional bearing shields prevent main pivot bearing contamination when washing your bike or riding in wet conditions.

keep your bike rides quiet and your frame sage from damage with fully integrated, flush-mounted rubber frame protection at all critical areas. In addition to downtube and seat-stay protection, the ribbed chainstay protector features expanded coverage of the rear dropout pivot area.

Transition exclusively use Enduro MAX suspension pivot specific bearings in standard sizes that are readiliy available worldwide. Dual bearings are used at the dropout pivots for frame stiffness and additional c-clips lock the rocker bearings in place under the torsional loads.

The underside top-tube accessory mount allows you to carry a spare tube or other goodies safely in your frame incase you are looking to ditch the backpack.

Dropper posts keep getting longer so a combined short seat tube length with mega seatpost insertion is in place to help get your saddle completely out of the way.

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

A standard 73mm threaded bottom bracket shell makes crankset maintenance hassle-free and prevents unwanted press-fit BB related noises.

The ZS44/ZS56 press in headset gives you the freedom to use angle adjust headsets if you feel the need to make your bike a touch slacker or a touch steeper. (Angleset headset does not come with framesets or complete bikes).

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

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

Transition Bikes take the upmost pride in the quality of their products and are stocked to offer a lifetime warranty for the original owner and a stellar crash replacement program. "We got your back so you don't have to worry about your bike".

Many brands arbitrarily publish the angle of a line going from the bottom bracket center to the intersection point of the seat post level with the top of the head tube. They might call this angle the effective seat tube angle (This is why you will see the effective seat tube angle is the same for all sizes on some brands), but since modern bikes rarely have a seat post axis that originates at the center of the BB, that seat tube angle is only representative if you happened to have a seat height that is exactly level with the top of your head tube. That is almost never the case, with most riders having their seat positioned significantly higher than that point.

In order to give educated buyers as much information as possible, we have chosen to show you the actual angle of the seat tube, combined with the horizontal distance that the seat tube axis is position in front of the BB center. Once armed with that info, it is possible to calculate exactly where your seat will end up at any given height.

We realize that involves a lot of complicated math, so to help you out, we also list an effective seat tube angle measured to a specific saddle height per frame size. As the seat height goes up, the effective angle gets slacker, and at lower seat heights the effective angle is steeper. We aim to give riders with a wide range of seat heights the ability to position their saddle forward or backward at the rail to fine tune their seat position for personal preference. Even a 10mm difference in saddle rail position can represent as much as a half a degree in effective seat tube angle at an average seat height. Our bikes are designed to be setup with the seat in the middle of the range and then adjusted from there to suit individual needs.
