Trek and Transition Prototype reveal new DH bikes.

Here at KB Cycles Newcastle, The North East’s Leading Trek, Scott, Haibike and Transition Bike Dealer, we love a prototype and Trek and Transition have delivered the goods for us this past weekend at the British Downhill Series up at Fort William.

First up, Gee Atherton was spotted riding a 29er Trek Session. We have known about this one for a while but its great to see it finally see the light of day.

We don’t know a lot about it at the minute, but it appears that the floating shock has been removed and it mounted in the frame similar fashion to the all new Trek Slash 29er.

Sadly Gee had a crash in his race run but he claimed the top top in qualification on the new bike.

So we know one thing…its designed to go fast!

Transition Bikes also reveled their new carbon downhill bike. The T11 appears to features their “Giddy Up” Horst-Link-type four-bar configuration which is a move away from their previous aluminium downhill bike the TR500.

Transition are keeping things very hush hush but we can’t wait to find out more. Head on over to for more images of the new Transition downhill rig

Both the Trek Session and the Transition TR11 will be available from KB Cycles Newcastle when they become available to the public..we’ll keep you informed 😉
