THE TRUSTY TOOL FOR ANY TRAIL
Like the reliable tool you grab for every job, the Smuggler is the go-to bike for any trail pointed up, down, and all around.

With dual 29 inch wheels, 130mm rear and 140mm front travel, the Smuggler may just be the most versatile bike in our lineup. A highly progressive leverage curve and comfortable, confidence-inspiring geo make it eager to keep going mile after mile while remaining surefooted in even the most technical terrain. Sitting squarely between the Spur and Sentinel in travel, geometry, and capability, it shares qualities of both. Inspiring and rewarding to hammer on your favorite singletrack, while never holding you back when the trail gets steep, the Smuggler will make sure you enjoy it all.

Inspiration
We went into the Smuggler project with the intention of creating a bike that had the quick and high-energy feel of the Spur, but with a bit more travel front and rear. What we ended up with was a perfect blend of the Spur and Sentinel in geometry, travel, capability, and weight. It's not all downhill in the PNW; there's plenty of singletrack, technical trail, and meandering connective routes. The Smuggler is perfect for a day when your path comes across all of the above.



Progression In All The Right Places
The kinematics are similar to the Spur with a little over 27% progression. This provides a bottomless feel in a mid-travel package. Paired with the Fox Float X shock, the Smuggler can be set up to suit any rider's preference. Looking for a bit more progression? Just add a larger volume spacer. All of this equates to a super lively, active, and forgiving rear suspension feel in any terrain.



Frame Design Evolution
The Smuggler exhibits a few frame design features that further our push to have clean aesthetics while remaining easy to service. The most notable is the headtube area that provides better functionality and serviceability. The new headtube has integrated bearing cups and no longer needs headset cups pressed into the frame. This allows the frame to have super clean cable ports at the front of the headtube with fully guided internal cable routing from the headtube to the port above the bottom bracket shell. From there, cables cleanly enter the rear triangle hidden from view.

  • Dual 29" Wheels
    Clearance to run up to 2.5" tires.

  • 140mm Front and 130mm rear travel
    The perfect amount of travel for moving around the mountains.

  • Drop in Headset Bearings
    Eliminates headset cups for simpler setup and durability.

  • New Cable Routing
    Clean headtube cable routing for precise cable management.

  • Internal Cable Routing
    Guide tubes inside the frame for super easy setup.

  • Size Specific Chainstays
    As the frame sizes grow, so do the chainstays to keep rider weight balanced on the bike.



  • 27% Progression
    Allows the bike to be incredibly responsive to the trail while still being able to take large hits.

  • Gear Accessory Mount
    Ditch the backpack and keep essential gear for on trail repairs.

  • UDH
    SRAM's universal derailleur hanger available at almost every bike shop.

  • 5 Sizes
    We make it easy to find the perfect size for you.

  • Lifetime Warranty

GiddyUp Suspension
We want to make it as easy as possible to experience great rear suspension performance. The GiddyUp suspension system is designed to behave intuitively across a broad range of setup. Because, we get it, sometimes you just want to grab your bike and GiddyUp, without checking your setup. When you do, it will always feel good.

With 27% of progression and a consistent linear rate of change, the Smuggler has an excellent balance of support and small bump sensitivity. Anti-squat is tuned to enhance pedaling performance and acceleration but doesn't get in the way of the suspension working when it's needed.

A wide usable sag range of 25 - 35% allows the rider to tune the feel of the bike; from firm and snappy, to more supple and active. Wherever you end up, you can focus on the trail without remotes, levers or knobs. Just grab your bike and GiddyUp.




Speed Balanced Geometry

SBG ensures the bike maintains low speed agility, front wheel traction, and proper rider weight balance while actually increasing confidence in steep terrain and at high speeds. With SBG, a slacker head tube angle is combined with a reduced offset fork standard, preventing the front wheel from being too far in front of the rider. This improves front to rear weight distribution on the bike, which is often out of balance on long and slack bikes. One of SBG's greatest benefits is that it creates a confident steering feel that adapts to wheel speed. More stability when going fast, more agility on technical slow speed maneuvering as well as improved traction, control and confidence for any skill level of rider.

REVIEWS

"This is a mountain bike for mountain bikers. This really does fit the old school definition of the sport. Pedal up a trail, ride down it, throw high fives, have fun, have a beer, enjoy life. That's what this bike does best." - Jeff Brines
Check out the Video Review Here.


"The new Transition Smuggler is a fast, fun, supple bike that feels lighter than its 32lbs, plusher than its 130mm of rear travel and faster than large 29". It has brilliant kit, looks amazing, and would do almost anything from a long XC day to a bike park jump session with a grin on its face the whole way. I did not want to give it back, and still regret doing so." - Tim Wild (Singletrackworld.com)
