NEW–Transition Scout Carbon

Words by Ben Mercer on 13/02/2020 16:00:00

Transition have just dropped the all-new Carbon Scout & it looks super sick! With 140mm of rear travel, 150mm up front & 27.5 wheels, it’s a bike that is all about releasing your inner child, and having fun out on the trails. “Hop on the Scout and you’re immediately transformed into a projectile..” Who doesn’t love being a projectile?

Read on to find out more about the all-new mid-travel shredder from Transition. You can view the entire Scout range here, or head in-store at West Brom or Cheltenham to check it out in the flesh!

Interested in trying out the all-new Transition Scout? Transition will be bringing it along to our Demo Weekend (28th & 29th March) for you all to ride! For more info, and to buy your tickets today follow this link.


Manual here, scrub that, skid there, pedal up this. Freedom to boost everything in sight, overshoot every landing without a care, mixed with nose bonking, corner slapping 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.

The All-New Transition Carbon Scout – Release your inner child

The Scout features a 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 stiffness, strength and impact toughness. The unique latex coated EPS molding process allows for sharper frame lines and tighter edge radius control with maximum strength-to-weight ratio and less wasted material.


The 25% overall progression with a linear rate of change works well with air or coil shocks. The stock 57.5mm shock stroke provides 140mm of rear wheel travel, with the ability to use a 62.5mm stroke shock to get 150mm travel and large usable sag range let you custom tailor your ride.

Dropper posts keep getting longer so we combine short seat tube lengths with mega seat-post insertion to help get your saddle completely out of the way. All complete bikes come with longer travel dropper posts; XS 120mm, SM 150mm, MD 180mm, LG/XL 210mm.
