Hop on the Scout and you're immediately transformed into a projectile.

Our modern-day take on the Bottlerocket, the Scout will awaken your inner child. 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.

 Some of the PNW classics look suspiciously like Sea to Sky secrets.
  • 15 10
 Indeed, but still Pacific Northwest, no?
  • 47 7
 @Aikow: Nope. That would be Pacific Southwest.
  • 26 14
 @kwl1: Geographically speaking, I think you are wrong. But if you frame it with a nationalistic mentality you are correct.
  • 18 15
 @Aikow: Geographically speaking I am right because it is the Pacific Southwest region of Canada. Or, the Pacific Southwest region of B.C.
  • 21 8
 @kwl1: Like I said, in a nationalistic perspective. Try considering the continent of North America, my friend.

 so much loam and new trails in Squamish.... I've said too much.
  • 8 1
 @Aikow: Cascadia Baby!
  • 13 1
 @Aikow: that would be near Alaska no?
  • 4 6
 @Yaan: Oy! Yes Alaska would be included. I can see you Canadians are sensitive about being included too. So sorry.
  • 17 1
 @Aikow: We (Squamish) would probably be in the Pacific Central Coast if we were using all of NA as our reference.
PNW is a term only used in the US, and the region ends at the border. Vancouver and the area around it is referred to as the South Coast.

 @paulwatt: I suppose it may depend on how many divisions you would like to make on the map, but I feel we beleaguer the point. Have it your way, was just having some fun trolling you all. After all isn't that what this site is for?

 To be fair, the video did allude to him crossing the border. This is a standard TR testing procedure to confirm the shift quality of all new bikes...

 @Aikow: "Try considering the continent of North America, my friend." In that case it would be middlewest. Nationalism, indeed.

 @kwl1: Stop it with your Canadian facts! Wink

 @Aikow: nope that'd be the Yukon, Klondike, tundra.

 @jaydawg69: Yeah, this soil looks like the stuff my mom buys for her flower pots. Choice Black.

 @jaydawg69: I heard whispers that was in the Seymour zone no?

 There‚Äôs a shot with the Britannia Mine museum, so likely around that area

 @djbuilder: Squamish 100%. No filming was done on the shore. We just have no flow creek beds to ride on and sick skinnies!
  • 3 0
 @Aikow: That's why we have the border, to keep the trolls out.
  • 1 0
 @Aikow: Dude, PNW is literally PNW by US standards because of lines on a map. That's why that frame of reference exists.

 Anyone notice that there was a bike in the video? Or is this just a geography / nationalist forum?
  • 1 0
 @kwl1: if you actually google PNW vs PSW you'll see that BC is in the PNW region, it's to do with the Pacific Ocean and has nothing to do with borders or continents

 Forgive my ignorance here.

I ride Duthie fairly regularly, but which parts of this video are shot there? I didn't recognize anything in the video as Duthie, but will admit to not having perfect recall.

Or are we talking the photos, because some of those trails I definitely recognize.

 @ocnlogan: Its the part where the dog walkers go. I would know as I have walked there before. The Duthie Backcountry is expansive.

 @ocnlogan: two of the jumps are on Paramount

 Damn you beautiful bastards. There's nothing wrong with my 2018 Scout but this looks great!

 From this video I see that Transition is a cool company, with cool employees, and cool bikes. I would say shut up and take my money, but they already have it.

I love my Patrol, but I test rode the old Scout and liked it a lot too. This would probably be perfect for me, but I'm already set. Two of my three main riding buddies got Transitions after me. Maybe this is the bike for the fourth one? Then we would have the main lineup covered!

 I luv the fact that this is a small company that rides what they make. Plenty of progression since the much luved Bottle Rocket. How about making a limited edition aluminum Bottle Rocket Smile

 I mean, this guy's a good rider and all, but how do you not use Nico Vink for your new bike release vid!?
  • 25 1
 We shot this before Nico was a part of TR, but you will definitely see him riding it this year! We are as stoked as you are to see him on it
