Triathlons and time trials require some serious suffering and no aversion to going fast. Really fast. In designing the Transition, we sought every possible advantage to shave a few seconds—or even minutes—through advanced aerodynamics, stiffness, handling, and versatile fit options to secure the fastest time possible.
WHAT FACT 7r frame with N’aero tube shaping,
triple monocoque construction, and
compact triathlon geometry with a front
end similar to the Tarmac geo.
WHY Creates an incredibly aerodynamic
frame that doesn’t skimp on stiffness.
HOW By designing our modified airfoil tubes to
be as narrow as possible for typical bike
speeds (including a 1” head tube), and
combining this with a slacker head tube
angle that’s similar to a road bike, we can
create a super slippery, yet stable bike.
Internal Cable Routing
WHAT Fully internal, guided cable routing
for brake and shifter cables.
WHY Provides additional aero boost by
eliminating the air disturbance caused by
external routing, while also protecting the
cables for minimal wear and giving the bike
an overall sleek, clean look.
HOW Cables and housing are run from the
handlebars down through headset/
down tube junction and exit just before
the BB and out the end of the chainstay.
Lightweight nylon guide tubes, which
are fixed into the frame, allow smooth
and simple cable/housing replacement,
eliminating the need to “fish” for cables
at exit points.
WHAT Three different seatpost options, each
with different built-in setbacks and two
WHY Provides a wide range of saddle height
adjustability and effective seatpost angles
for maximum comfort and adaptability to
different rider preferences.
HOW Each seatpost has a single-bolt, tiltadjustable
clamp that’s reversible,
offering two setback positions for each
post. This adjustability allows a range of
effective seat tube angles from 72.5-82
degrees (medium frame). All posts offer
