Transition Scout GX
The scout is the small brother of the patrol, but this isn’t your classic mid travel "trail bike", it follows extremely closely with the patrol in that the bike wants to be ridden hard. Versatility describes the bike best, it’s happy going on a Sunday XC ride and then dropping into the trail the locals are too scared to talk of. The 130/150mm of supportive travel is due to Transitions “Giddy up” suspension platform. Speed balanced geometry runs throughout the Transition family, so there’s no shortage of fun to be had on this bike.

Santa Cruz Bronson C R
The smaller brother of the Nomad, the Bronson is redesigned for 2018 with all new geometry and linkage. Santa Cruz have worked hard trying to top the previous design of the Bronson, and this was the result. 150mm of linear rear travel with a barely noticeable bottom out, a 160mm fork takes care of any nonsense that your front wheel meets. A 65-degree head angle allows a great climbing position but an endless amount of confidence going down. To demo this bike simply select the date you wish to demo this bike from the calendar below!
Santa Cruz Nomad AL R
The ultimate park bike, with 170mm travel front and 165mm rear the bike is ready for anything. Years of development has come to something that resembles the feel and ride character of a downhill bike but pedals uphill with ease. Up to date geometry means stability and fit are the best that they can be. Need one bike that does it all? You may have found it. The bike dares you to find its limits. It’s easy to question how much you can get out of a single crowned bike, but you’ll be searching for answer for a long time with the Nomad.

Transition Patrol NX
The transition patrol is for gnarly days out, pedaling up and hucking silly gaps. The bike asks to be cased, landed sideways and have the ultimate fun on a trail bike possible. With 160mm rear and 170mm front you’ll struggle to find the bikes limits anywhere you go. The bike boasts a long top tube and crazy low stand over giving you maximum stability on the trails. Found yourself in the middle of the hardest trail on the hill? Don’t worry, the patrol will get to the flat ground safely. You may resemble a Cheshire cat throughout the ride but that’s all part of the deal. To demo this bike simply select the date you wish to demo this bike from the calendar below!
