Frame Material


The TR11’s DNA has a healthy strain of big freeride hits, DH speed and bike park inspiration. It will help you live all of your gravity fed dreams with the confidence of a 29” wheel up front while not giving up the flickability on jumps or in tight corners with a 27.5” wheel out back.

This bike was designed to let you party on the trails rather than worry about the small details. The new TR 11 frame is aluminum, so throw it in the truck or blast through a rock garden without hesitation. We spec’d Fox Racing Shox new Float X air shock to take heavy hits while offering tunability, so you can adjust your setup to match your needs at all times. The TR11’s rear end has regular Boost (148mm) spacing, giving you a little extra wiggle room through tight jank. Along with two chainstay positions to accommodate riders looking for a more planted or more playful feel. The rebirthed TR11 won’t pigeonhole you into one discipline, so can revel in the world of gravity fed adventures.

From Transition
Simplified Cable Routing

The TR11 now has a cable routing port in the front of the headtube which routes the rear derailleur and brake cables together and accommodates the rear brake lever being used on either side of the handlebar. Keeping the cockpit clean and tidy.

Straight 56mm Headtube

The straight 56mm headtube uses our TR11 adjustable headset cups which provides riders even more fine tuning options.

Adjustable Chainstays

The SM and MD share a 440/445mm adjustable chainstay, and LG and XL share a 445/450 adjustable chainstay to keep the bike balanced throughout the size range.

148 Boost Axle

The rear hub spacing is now boost 148mm, which provides some extra wiggle room through tight sections of trail as well as the ability to share a rear wheel with a trail bike. The BB shell spacing remains standard DH 83mm which provides optimal chainline with DH specific 7 speed cassettes.


The complete bike spec was chosen to balance performance and value. We wanted to make the bike ready to rip right out of the box and not leave customers feeling like they need to upgrade parts. Stock MD complete bike weight 37.8 lbs / 17.16kg.


The TR11 is available in four sizes, but we have increased the reach length difference between each size to accommodate even shorter, and taller riders.

Integrated Bumpers

These integrated bumpers make sure your frame and fork are protected at all times so you don't need to worry about the stanchion mounted bumpers being in the wrong place.

Rear Shock

The DH capable Float X shock performs incredibly well and is super easy to achieve the exact spring rate you need without needing to source a different rate coil spring. It has all the adjustment you need in a package that's easy to fine tune and not worry about an excess amount of adjustments.

Gravity GiddyUp Suspension

Progressive by nature, low leverage and minimal pedal kick back, our Gravity GiddyUp Suspension provides fantastic performance in a simple package. We love how consistent the suspension feels and the ease of setup. The newly optimized kinematics are ideal for descending your local shuttle laps, full days in the bike park, and pushing your limits on the race track. Gravity Giddy Up Suspension is both forgiving and supportive at the same time. Whether you like huge jumps, finding side jibs or going flat out fast, the TR11 suspension has your back.

Reach Adjust Headset

All TR11 framesets and complete bikes include our custom 56mm zero stack reach adjust headset. We know that fine tuning the fit on your DH bike is super important to the overall handling and feel of the bike. Our headset includes a set of neutral 0mm cups as as well as offset cups to run +/- 5mm reach. TR11 frames include a decal on the headtube to make centering the cups a no brainer. The headset includes high quality sealed cartridge bearings, alloy crown race, custom top cover as well as our signature "Make A Party" top cap.
