Transition Suppressor 26" Mountain Bike Frame - 2016

 

The Transition Suppressor is the 26" wheeled brother of their Patrol model and gives you the control of a downhill bike perfectly balanced with a lively and jumpy personality for a comfortable, efficient and fun ride in almost any trail condition. The Suppressor is long and low with a slack 65-degree head angle and big wheelbase for tremendous stability in rowdy terrain. But don’t let the numbers fool you; the short 430mm chainstay combined with 155mm of active and carefully tuned suspension keep you in touch with the ground and ready to respond at a moment’s notice. With the Transition Suppressor you get big mountain confidence with trail bike agility in the same machine.
