​Featuring Huck To Flat, T.I.T.S. and P.A.B.S.T. technology, as well as GiddyUp 4-bar Linkage, Transition has brought out the plastic version of their already successful 155-mm Patrol. Utilizing a process that Transition calls Woven Tight Fibers, or W.T.F. for short, the new Patrol Carbon sheds 1.35-pounds over its alloy brother, with no compromise in strength or stiffness. Check out the details from Transition, below.

About The Patrol Carbon

Photo: Paris Gore

The Patrol Carbon is the highly anticipated premium option to our 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, seat stays and chain stays 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 seat post 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.

Design Features

The W.T.F. process used on the Patrol Carbon utilizes the highest grade carbon materials and EPS molding process, providing increased stiffness and strength at one of the most competitive weights in it's class.

The Patrol Carbon uses the proven GiddyUp Linkage shared across the entire GiddyUp line.

The T.I.T.S. internally guided cable system ensures a rattle-free ride, ease of assembly and maintenance. The fully guided tubes eliminate the need for fishing cables when routing brake, derailleur and seat post cables.

The P.A.B.S.T. system provides room for a variety of hydration storage systems, container sizes and fluid choices.

The BBS2 system utilizes a standard Euro threaded 73mm bb shell for ease of BB compatibility, installation and maintenance. Euro threaded BB shells are creak free and the most common industry-wide shell standard.

The Patrol Carbon also includes our H.T.F. technology. All Transition Bikes must surpass the rigorous H.T.F. test cycle before being introduced to the public.
