Transition Bandit (MSRP $4799) — The Bandit is our take on a traditional trail bike designed to rip up and down the mountain. We pushed the envelope of tube design and machining to create a bike that absolutely floats through singletrack. Careful attention to pivot placement and leverage curves make the Bandit feel like a longer travel bike on the way down, but an XC race bike going up. We set out to create a trail bike that combined great uphill efficiency with a playful and aggressive spirit on the descent. The Bandit includes a custom tuned shock that’s matched perfectly to the leverage curve for a bottomless feel, great small bump sensitivity and efficient pedaling. For 2012 we have increased frame stiffness with new 12mm x 142mm dropouts. But don’t worry, if you still have a 135mm wheelset that you can’t convert we have optional 10mm x 135mm dropouts as well. The Bandit also includes adjustable seatpost cable routing and ISCG tabs to keep your options open.
