Transition goes E!
Buckle up and get ready to charge, the Repeater is down for anything. With 160mm travel, 29 inch wheels, the Shimano EP8 motor system, and a 630w battery, you can maximize fun on the ups and the downs. Whether it's a quick rip after work, ditching the shuttle truck, or just the pure joy of exploring that you are after, the Repeater loves it all. Like all of our other beloved bikes, the Repeater has SBG geometry and our GiddyUp suspension, so you'll feel right at home the moment you turn on the power.
Giddy Up Suspension
Transition want to make it as easy as possible to experience great rear suspension performance. The GiddyUp suspension system is designed to behave intuitively across a broad range of setup. Because, they get it, sometimes you just want to grab your bike and GiddyUp, without checking your setup. When you do, it will always feel good.
The suspension provides 160mm of travel from a 205 x 65mm shock, is tuned to work correctly with both air and coil. Compared to Transitions other GiddyUp bikes, the Repeater has a slightly lower leverage ratio to offset the added weight of the motor and battery, this allows you to run normal air pressures in the rear shock.
With nearly 26% progression and an E-bike specific version of our GiddyUp suspension kinematic, the Repeater has an excellent balance of support and small bump sensitivity.
The EP8 motor comes pre-tuned by Transition with two profiles to maximize battery life and give you the best ride experience possible. Profile 1 is focused on giving you a powerful but natural ride feel in TRAIL mode, leaving BOOST for when you really need it, and making ECO more usable on the trail. Profile 2 is focused on range, helping you go as far as possible when distance is what you're after. Riders can easily modify the characteristics of ECO, TRAIL, and BOOST modes in both profiles via the Shimano E-Tube app. The Shimano EP8 system was designed specifically for offroad use, offering seamless integration, plenty of power, and options to customize the feel of the motor based on your preferences.
All Carbon Frameset
The Repeater frame is made from premium Japanese Toray carbon fiber. The lightweight one piece rocker is made from 100% carbon fiber and the full carbon frame construction reduces aluminum inserts to save weight and maximize strength.
The Repeater uses a Shimano 630Wh internal battery that is easily removed with a single 4mm allen wrench. The full carbon battery cover is lightweight, durable, and painted to match the frame.
