The All-Country Bike
Effortlessly explore, seek, and pursue the mountain in ways you never imagined.
The Spur provides a sense of connection to the bike as if it were an extension to your body. Fast and efficient with an anti-gravity feel and laser-pointer precision that begs you to climb more, go farther, and descend anything you may encounter along the way. You'll instantly appreciate the free speed you're awarded while accelerating where you're usually accustomed to pedaling. Don't judge a book by its cover though, with all these lightweight and uphill oriented character traits the Spur requires no adjustment to descend like you're used to, you might actually go faster.
Speed Balanced Geometry
SBG ensures the bike maintains low speed agility, front wheel traction, and proper rider weight balance while actually increasing confidence in steep terrain and at high speeds. With SBG, a slacker head tube angle is combined with a all new reduced offset fork standard, preventing the front wheel from being too far in front of the rider. This improves front to rear weight distribution on the bike, which is often out of balance on long and slack bikes. One of SBG's greatest benefits is that it creates a confident steering feel that adapts to wheel speed. More stability when going fast, more agility on technical slow speed maneuvering as well as improved traction, control and confidence for any skill level of rider.
GIDDYUP SUSPENSION DESIGN
We want to make it as easy as possible to experience great rear suspension performance. The GiddyUp suspension system is designed to behave intuitively across a broad range of setup. Because, we get it, sometimes you just want to grab your bike and GiddyUp, without checking your setup. When you do, it will always feel good.
With nearly 30% of progression and a consistent linear rate of change, the Spur has an excellent balance of support and small bump sensitivity. Anti-squat is tuned to enhance pedaling performance and acceleration but doesn't get in the way of the suspension working when it's needed.
The GiddyUp suspension, featuring a one-piece flex stay rear triangle, is tuned to work correctly with inline style rear shocks and designed to provide a balanced feel with 120mm travel forks. Riders are able to add or remove volume spacers in the rear shock to suit their individual riding style and there is plenty of bottom out control for when things get rowdy. The Spur has 120mm of rear wheel travel when used with the supplied 190mm x 45mm stroke shock. It is also possible to install a shorter, 190mm x 37.5mm stroke shock, to reduce the rear wheel travel to 100mm if you are after a shorter travel experience.
A wide usable sag range of 25 - 35% allows the rider to tune the feel of the bike; from firm and snappy, to more supple and active. Wherever you end up, you can focus on the trail without remotes, levers or knobs. Just grab your bike and GiddyUp.
"Transition's Spur X01 is the best realised 'down-country' bike we've ever tested. It's lightning quick, lures you right into the middle of a tornado of action, yet always spits you out with a sunshine-after-the-storm calmness." - Mountain Bike Rider Magazine
"Overall, the Spur has been a blast. This really is a well rounded bike with no characteristics that are outliers. The geometry, layup, and components all work together. Its not an overly stiff bike, but its not unsettling, and sometimes feels like traction. Its got cute dampers, but they work well with the weight and layup of the bike. Its not all about weight either, with burlier components where you'd want them." - Cooper Quinn / nsmb.com
"The Spur has redefined "trail speed" for us. Due to the lightweight build, aggressive geometry, and stable handling, our braking points on our test track were completely different and we found ourselves brake checking some bigger gaps as we were always carrying more speed. The Spur is able to squeeze out every bit of performance from the ultra light SID suspension and take full advantage of the lightweight components. The only thing we would change is spec a bigger brake as we were continually taking the Spur into progressively gnarlier terrain. If you are looking for the most capable 120mm bike out there, go throw your leg over the Spur. We will definitely have it at the front of our stable for the foreseeable future." - Nic Hall / The Loam Wolf
"When the Spur first headed my way for testing, I wasn't quite sure what to expect as I don't spend all that much time on bikes which are that light duty, nor that lightweight. Aside from a minor bump in bar height, which says more about me than the bike, I was consistently impressed not only by how much it could handle, but by what a hoot it was to ride. Long masochistic days in the saddle simultaneously became less tortuous and more fun. I'm still trying to figure out how a bike that climbs so proficiently can still manage to put such a huge smile on my face when pointed back downhill, and everywhere in between for that matter - it almost doesn't make sense." - Ian Collins / MTB-Mag
