" 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   Click here for the full review 

" 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   Click here for the full review
