"The Smuggler takes the benefits of the larger 29" wheels (increased grip, traction and rollover) and adds
nimble and agile handling along with an urgency not often felt on longer travel bikes.
If singletrack with 'a dash of tech' is your thing and you like to get the hammer down, you need to ride this
bike. The Smuggler devours testing terrain, whether up, across or down. We found ourselves riding faster and
further, adding in that extra loop, chasing fading daylight." - Dirt Magazine Click here for the full article
" With the shock wide open, bombing down very rocky runs like Geronimo on Phoenix's South Mountain was a blast. We were able
to easily lift the bike and place it where we needed it to be, and the larger diameter wheels took away a large degree of the harshness
from the boulders strewn across the trail. It was as if we were riding a 140-150mm travel 650b wheeled sled, and the comfortable
geometry kept us at ease when poor line choice would otherwise get us into trouble. The bike's ability to get our testers out of these
moments unscathed was inspiring. Sitting a little deeper into the shock than normal gives the bike plenty of control and small to
medium bump compliance, and only through the rowdiest chunk, big hucks, and large compressions are you really reminded that
you're on a "little" bike." - Vitalmtb.com 

" It was an all-day marathon machine that turned technical climbs into wheelchair ramps. The Smuggler packs a 130mm pike up
front, and has Transition's reputation for shredding behind it. So we climbed into the saddle with guns blazing and none was
disappointed. It wasn't as simple as just calling it 'lively' or 'playful.' The relatively slack front end and soft rear end devoured the
loose, mid-sized chop covering our trails, keeping the tires on the ground through the twisting chutes that send similar bikes
sliding." - Bike Magazine, The Bible of Tests 

" I probably flew downhill faster than on any 29er with comparable travel. And there's no way to quantify it, but I certainly had
more fun. " - Bicycling Magazine
