Transition Sentinel Alloy NX Mountain Bike 2018

For some time there has a gap between climbing bikes and descending bikes, if people were mainly climbing hills they would go for a hard tail and for people mainly doing downhills it would be a full suspension.

This is the closet bike i’v ridden so far that seems the closet thing to bridging the gap so you can ride all types of terrain and uphill and downhill.

It performs surprising well when going uphill and just as go as any hardtail but obviously the fun really starts when you hit the downhill trails, it copes extremely well with rocky, dusty and loose terrain it can also do jumps and berms no problem.

This bike really is a great already which can probably actually save people money in the long run, instead of buying a hardtail and full suspension for your different trails and rides you could just buy the one Transition Sentinel and have the best of everything!

The one feature that may make a massive difference in the performance of the bike up and down hill is the Speed Balanced Geometry (SBG), it gives you more control and power while riding the bike, click here to read more about SBG.

One simple feature that seems to have come into fashion, out of fashion and back in is the internal cabling which makes the bike look slick, theres less to rattle and it’s one thing less for the bike to snagg on when out riding.

Just to top it off the Sentinel looks ridiculously good with the black and blue combo.
