2017 Transition Scout Carbon
Do you think you’re too old to play in the dirt?
Meet the Scout Carbon. Like the Patrol, the Scout now has a carbon version. The carbon version rides like the original Scout, but does it weighing 600g less. That is a huge drop in weight and when you combine it with the other attributes of the Scout, it makes for a bike that’s ready and willing to play.
One of the best things about the Scout Carbon is that it has GiddyUp suspension, the award winning suspension system that is designed to always assist you, no matter what shenanigans you are doing on the mountain. Even during technical climbs, the suspension helps instead of hinders forward progress.
Whether tearing around a park, or riding the backcountry trails is your thing, the Scout Carbon is your bike. With Progressive Geometry, defined as being long, low and slack, it is equipped to give you the control, low center of gravity, and feeling of being grounded that you need when going over challenging downhill sections, and the traction you need when climbing up technical spots. This is a bike that will have you doing crazy stuff all along the trail. And you won’t stop grinning, because this is a bike that turns every arena into a playground.
