The Patrol Carbon is the highly decorated premium option to our well regarded aluminum Patrol that grabbed Dirt Magazine's top 100 products of 2016. All the great features of the aluminum Patrol with a large reduction in weight and no compromise in strength. The carbon front triangle, seatstays and chainstays provide a crisp and responsive ride with excellent trail feel. Featuring all the same geometry and GiddyUp suspension the Patrol Carbon is even more capable up and down mountains. The fully guided internal cable routing for rear brake and derailleur are easy to use and rattle free. The collet main pivot keeps the rear end stiff and the threaded bottom bracket is a mechanics dream. With around a 600 gram weight savings over the aluminum Patrol the Patrol Carbon climbs like an E-bike, and descends like a downhill bike.

"In short, the Patrol is fantastic. It seems to pedal with ease and grace for a 155 mm travel bike. Pricing and weight are reasonable. It's adequately stiff for aggressive riding, but not jarring either. Descending the Patrol is a sheer giggle on the trail. It never seems to get upset on rough terrain but is still agile enough to place it precisely where I want it." - Tim Coleman, NSMB.com  Click here for the full review

"We've never tested a bike as quiet as the Patrol Carbon. Even the freehub on the Stan's Bravo rear wheel has a subtle purr. It is blissful to ride, a little disconcerting even, as you only realise how fast you're going when you need to slow down." - MBR Magazine   Click here for the full review
"Its 155mm rear and 160 mm travel up front with roomy geometry adds up to a very controlled bike, with that low standover aiding body movements, for there will be plenty as it's a very lively ride. For many people the big news is that for 2016 its now going to be available in carbon. Yes its got smoother lines, but they are the same lines, we're more than happy with the aluminium bike, but whatever material its one of our favourite 150-160 bikes of the year." - Dirt Magazine   Click here for the full article
"The Patrol Carbon is the most versatile all-mountain bike that I can remember riding. It's slack and forgiving like a proper enduro race bike should be, but then it seems to transform into not just a completely manageable package when the terrain isn't burly, but one that's an absolute blast to ride. Transition hasn't employed any buttons or dials to change the bike's geometry, either, but rather just built a smart, easy to live with bike that's fun to ride everywhere and anywhere" - Mike Levy, Pinkbike Click here for the full review
