2022 Transition Sentinel Alloy - NX Build - Powder Black

Transition

Price £3,600.00

The Sentinel is a bit of a do-everything bike in the Transition range, up for all-dayers in the hills or uplift days.

Out of the box, the bike is set up with a 150 mm shock and 160 mm fork, but the bike will still handle well with a 150 or 140 mm fork, and you can change the rear shock for a shorter one to run the back at 140 mm.

Transition have given the longer-lower-slacker approach a name - "Speed Balanced Geometry" - but effectively it means short stem, slack head angle, short offset (42-44 mm) fork and a longer top tube, pretty much what you would expect from any modern enduro-orientated bike. On that note, all models can take a water bottle, though you'll need to use a fid lock bottle on the size small frame.

Never ones to shy away from a cheesy name, the Transition's "GiddyUp" suspension has fantastic small bump sensitivity and enough progression to run a coil shock without blowing through the travel. The Enduro Max bearings and additional bearing shields are a huge plus point for UK riding!

This NX spec bike is outstanding value for money with a Fox 36 Rhythm fork and Performance Elite shock, proper brakes and an excellent one up dropper post.  Dropper size and bar rise vary depending on frame size.

Please note, bike specifications can change due to shortages!
