TR450 / TR250 / COVERT / BANDIT / DOUBLE / TRANSAM / BANK / PBJ / BLT / KLUNKER   


The Bandit is an aggressive trail bike designed for riders that love long rides and long climbs but don't want to compromise on the descents. Built with an excellent strength to weight ratio, the Bandit can hang with the XC crowd while remaining very aggressive on the downhills and technical sections. The custom tuned suspension provides incredibly efficient pedaling while maintaining the ability to go wide open and devour rough trails.

SWITCHBACK MAGAZINE BANDIT 29 Review 2013
"On the trail the Transition Bandit 29 is not as big as the 120 mm of travel and 29-inch wheels would lead one to believe. In a market that is divided between cross-country, all-mountain, over-mountain, Enduro, marathon and downhill bikes, the Bandit 29's attitude seems to be, "Shut up and ride." Despite the Bandit 29's big bike heritage and robust weight, it was nimble, with surprising, quick acceleration. The Bandit 29 is a true all-purpose mountain bike that doesn't specialize; rather, it excels across a broad spectrum of terrain and riding styles. - Switchback Magazine"

MTBR.com 2012 BANDIT 29 Review
"Even with the big somewhat flexy wheels, the Bandit just does something for stability at speed that my bike will never do. If you're a die hard 26" rider, this above anything is the big reason to look at one of these bikes. If you're a 29er convert already, I'd be surprised if you'd ridden a bike that feels quite this stable yet able to put you over the rear wheel manualing or yanking the front end out of a tight corner as nimbly. Kevin Bazar, MTBR.com"
