The TR450 is a dedicated downhill racing machine.
Heavily researched and selected with direct input from the Transition Racing Team, this is an aggressive geo built for speed and stability. With a careful ratio between chainstay length and head angle, the frame has a neutral feel in corners with good rider weight balance between the front and rear wheels. The TR450 gets 8.25” of travel from a 9.5” x 3” shock placed low in the front triangle. The linkage was tuned to provide a gradual change from beginning to ending leverage rate. The suspension ramps up very evenly through the travel to give the bike a supple top stroke and good bottom out control without excessive sag or mid stroke wallow. This result is a consistent progressive suspension feel that is predictable and yields a high amount of tunability. We set out to make the cleanest looking DH bike on the market that could be ridden hard and put away wet while being a dependable top level race bike you can trust.
