The Patrol Carbon is the highly anticipated premium option to Transition's well regarded aluminum Patrol. All the great features of the aluminum Patrol with a large reduction in weight and no compromise in strength. The carbon front triangle, seatstays and chainstays provide a crisp and responsive ride with excellent trail feel. Featuring all the same geometry and GiddyUp suspension, the Patrol Carbon is even more capable up and down mountains. The fully guided internal cable routing for rear brake, derailleur and seatpost are easy to use and rattle free. The collet main pivot keeps the rear end stiff and the threaded bottom bracket is a mechanics dream. With around a 600 gram weight savings over the aluminum Patrol the Patrol Carbon climbs like an E-bike, and descends like a downhill bike.

"The Patrol Carbon is the bulldog that can win an agility contest; the Motorhead fan who secretly knows how to dance the salsa. Sure, the recipe to make a 155mm travel bike that shines on rowdy descents is relatively straightforward these days, but few companies have figured out how to bake-in the kind of all-around versatility that Transition has managed to do with their Patrol." - Mike Levy, Pinkbike

"While it's not downhill season in the PNW, I've taken the Patrol to one of our local shuttle spots on several occasions and actually preferred the Patrol over my downhill bike on those trails The confidence-inspiring geometry combined with the bottomless feel of the GiddyUp suspension allows me to charge like I'm riding my big bike." - Eric Brown, Freehub Magazine  Click here for the full review
