 call me old fashioned, but i'm more of a Articulated Suspension System man
  • 13 1
 Same, but I'm happy to have both as well. It's about 60-40 for me
  • 86 1
 I respect your opinions. I prefer the Bottom Out On Berm System myself.
  • 35 1
 Actually these work best, Direct Impact Critical Kinetic Suspension.....wait, what?
  • 55 1
 Why choose between Articulated Suspension System and Tubes In Tubes systems, when you can have both? they're not mutually exclusive technologies.
  • 20 0
 Exactly. Why not both? And ideally in a package that isn't too heavy or hard on the wallet. But you can only ask so much.
  • 20 2
 Trust me,next year you will get the new Sram Highly Innovative Transmission available with this bike. Prototyping now.

 I don't understand why more companies don't use the t.i.t.s. system. My brother's reign was a pain and took ages to route lol

 The 2016 Carbon Stumpjumper FSR does and I was really happy with that. Soooooo easy....

 But everybody pissed and moaned about Cove's marketing... personally, I loved the Shocker, I wouldn't mind an STD, and how wouldnt want a Hummer? And wasn't there something about a 650BJ?
  • 6 1
 The difference between cove and this ad is that the name of the bike is still patrol, not std. When you say you own an std that's a lot different than owning a patrol, which happens to have T.I.T.S

 It'd make it a lot easier if they (manufacturers) didn't even go the internal routing route.

 Did somebody say 4 bar linkage. The new revolution is here, will you answer the call? I sure as hell won't.

 Whatever happened to their Completely Optimized Carbon Kinetics and Basically Aligned Linear Leverage System technologies. C.O.C.K. and B.A.L.L.S. would work so well with T.I.T.S.
  • 22 1
 with a Very Agile Great Internal New Axle
  • 8 1
 I just think that after playing with their C.O.C.K. and B.A.L.L.S. technologies for a few years, the company matured and upgraded to T.I.T.S. We could say they're about to hit a home run with this one.

 The huck at 1:06 could have been the only riding in the whole video and it still would've sold me on the bike. damn.

 I bought a Kona Process and was pretty flabbergasted when the housing ACTUALLY ROUTED THROUGH THE FRAME without causing me frustration/tears. Kudos to any company that is down to earth enough to incorporate easy routing. Shame on a certain company who have had a Rocky relationship with this feature in their Mountain bikes.

 I'm glad they improved on my Covert Carbon, which had no TITS, as it was a pain in the ass the get the cables through. Transition rules!

 Super awesome Edit and it was really cool to be able to see this bike perform! Some of these trails are our DH training trails and range from super rooty and techy steep to some big mountain climbs, this bike and Lars ruled them all!

 3199?!?! Even an Ibis HD3 is 2800. What the hell Transition, you went from podunk alloy frames on the FSR linkage to near S-Work level prices.

 Transition have smashed it again! The 2014 Carbon Covert was the stiffest enduro sled on the market and an indestructible park bike, but at less than100grams lighter than the alloy version it was hard for some to justify.
The Patrol is perfect… Threaded BB, Internal front and external rear routing, optimum geometry and tyre clearance. Some might argue that the shock is the weak point but who keeps a standard shock anyway?
I bought the 2016 Bronson CC a few months but only because I couldn't wait until Spring for a new ride. Patrol frame now pre-ordered…can't wait!
