Video: Transition Develops The New Patrol & Hannah Bergemann Puts It Through Its Paces

The Patrol is one of our longest running bikes in our lineup, so when it came time to give it an update, it was no easy task. Our product development team dug deep into the current trends of mountain biking, and decided that going back to our roots was just the inspiration they needed.

The Patrol has always been a trail bike that can go big, so there was no better person than Hannah Bergemann to showcase its abilities.

HB is one of the most calm and collected riders we know, but she is no stranger to fast and loose shredding.

Hannah making moves like this look too easy. So much so that our video shots looked somewhat chill. This move is not chill.

From big jumps to rocky and rough terrain, the Patrol loves to get in the thick of it. While still allowing you to comfortably pedal yourself back up for lap after lap.

Just another day in the office for Hannah B! Not only is she a TR athlete, but also a member of our marketing team, helping with the many things we do behind the scenes here.

Patrol available with 160mm fox fork and a launch video with a 180mm rock shox fork.
*Disclaimer: I might be wrong though.

 I'd like to know why they're only initially offering in alloy builds. I'm guessing maybe it's supply constraints. The Scout and Sentinel moved to carbon only on most recent upgrades, so alloy-only seems unusual. Also, the builds max out at Shimano XT, no X01 build.

I'm seeing so many bikes coming with Assegai tires on the front, but all of the sudden Transition is ditching Maxxis tires?! I'd love to see a deep-dive video with engineers into this bike and the build option decision!

I WANT THIS BIKE RIGHT MEOW

 All good - really good actually. But damn near impossible to find a Transition to even test ride. And I'm just across the border in North Vancouver.

 HB has it all- raw speed, style, control, and guts. That gap is no joke, especially in person (used to live in Bellingham). TR can skip the intro next time.

 Why knock their skit? WTFRU, comedy critic for PB? Think of the fun they had putting it together. When mullet man came in for his 'classic' I thought it was good humor. Doubt I'm alone with that take.

 Patrolling the comments for people to get mad at?? If I'm going to watch world class riding or bike industry comedy I go for the former every day, all day... doesn't mean I'm throwing shade at TR. Some of us don't have time during working hours to watch both. Spread good vibes not PB comment hate.
