The long awaited carbon Smuggler is here, with SBG, Giddy Up 2.0h suspension, a threaded bottom bracket and everything else you could want on a bike. Including carbon. Did I already mention that?

It has 140 millimeters of travel up front and 120 millimeters in the back, comes in two colors and two builds or a frameset. Available this spring.

Bone Grey with the X01 build.

The frameset is $3,000, the GX build is $5,000 and the X01 build is $6,000. And it is not an e-bike. The frame weighs 6.5 pounds, there is internal cable routing and Transition says it is rattle free. Sound interesting? See what we thought of the aluminum Smuggler here.

The X01 build in Gunsmoke Blue.
