Scout Carbon XT Bike

The Scout is a poppy, fun bike that will remind you why you got into mountain biking! Pair this frame with a burly fork, and you'll have one of the most entertaining and capable bikes out there.

Out of the box, the bike is set up with a 140 mm shock, but you can change the rear shock for a longer one to run the back end at 150 mm. Transition designed this bike from the start to run either size of shock. The frame will be happy with a fork between 140 and 160 mm.

Transition have given the longer-lower-slacker approach a name - "Speed Balanced Geometry" - but effectively it means a longer top tube and slack head angle, ready to run a short stem and short offset (42-44 mm) fork, 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 XS frame.

Never ones to shy away from a cheesy name, the Scouts "GiddyUp" suspension has fantastic small bump sensitivity and enough progression to run a coil shock without blowing through the travel. As standard, the bike has one shock volume spacer fitted so you can add or remove spacers to fine tune ramp up. Enduro MAX bearings and additional bearing shields are a huge plus point for UK riding.

The XT version of the Scout features Fox 36 and X2 Performance suspension, alongside XT 4 pots, Stan's Flow S1 wheels and a OneUp dropper.
