  • The Scout is a firm favourite of ours, its the sensible choice for the UK trail rider that we wanted to combine with the reliability of a Shimano SLX M7000 groupset, Yari fork and a sensible build kit.

    We wanted to build a reliable, sensible Scout using the Yari fork and an SLX 11 speed groupset

    With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

    You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


    With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

    So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

    We have a long history of bikes that are big on performance but short on travel. Our Bottlerocket was a ground breaking model that helped move the freeride category away from long travel dual crown forks towards modern slopestyle setups. As time went on, we saw a lot of riders using the Bottlerocket as an all around trail bike, something that was fun on jumpy “flow trails" and gave the rider a lot more confidence than a traditional trail bike. The Scout has much of the same feel, but without the added weight. It's responsive on the trail, ready to manual at any moment and crisp handling like a sports car. The suspension is active and rides high in the travel, so despite having only 125mm of the travel, the Scout is our most capable and confident trail bike ever. Although the Scout shares a lot of its look with the Patrol, and both have similar builds, they each have their own distinct ride feel.

    Sizing Information

    Transition Trail bike sizing

    Approx rider height range:

    5'2"-5'6" Small

    5'6"-5'10" Medium

    5'10"-6'2" Large

    6'2"-6'6" Extra Large

    Some sizing notes from Transition:

    The days of 120mm stems and 680mm handlebars with bar ends are nearly gone and we feel that an approach to sizing born in that era should go away as well. With progressive trail design and all of the recent changes in bike technology, selecting your frame size is not as cut and dry as it once was. With the huge variety of trail styles, riding styles and bike setup preferences, we would urge you to look beyond your height and inseam to find the right bike size. We want you to have as much fun as possible riding your bike. And in the end we want you to remember, there is no right or wrong size for you (within reason of course). 
    Take a look at the style of trails you will be riding, and how you would approach them... are they fast and open or tight and technical? Steep or mellow? Do you like to catch air or keep the wheels on the ground? Do you pick the gnarly straight line, or move your bike around on the trail? Did you grow up racing BMX bikes, start off with mountain biking, or get into it from road biking? Want your bike to feel super stable or super agile? All of these factors come into play, and each one is just as important as the others. For example, you can choose to ride a size Large frame and use a 35mm stem and achieve a nearly identical reach as a Medium size frame with a 60mm stem. Each setup can be as capable as the other, while offering a very different feeling ride. Even beyond stem length, depending on how you have answered those questions, you might want to go up or down in size to get the right fit and feel for you and your trails. 
    In order to reflect those choices, we have updated our sizing chart with a lot more overlap across the size range. We have tried to illustrate the bike sizes we felt would apply to each rider size; but be sure to look at the geometry and make sure the size you are choosing makes sense for your preferences. Everyone is different, plain and simple. The lines have become blurred and there is no strict rule of thumb anymore. When choosing your perfect size, ask yourself these questions, call or email us if you need a second opinion and most importantly... make sure you pick the setup that you feel will be the most fun!
