Plug Into The Vibe
Up, down, all around.
The Transition Repeater loves it all.
Buckle up and get ready to charge, the Transition Repeater is down for anything. With 160mm travel, 29 inch wheels, the Shimano EP8 motor system, and a 630w battery, you can maximise 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.
We 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, we 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 GiddyUp suspension layout provides 160mm of travel from a 205 x 65mm shock, and is tuned to work correctly with both air and coil. Riders are able to add or remove volume spacers in the rear air shock to suit their individual riding style and there is plenty of bottom out control with air or coil shocks when things get rowdy. Compared to our 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 Repeater suspension is tuned for maximum traction that enhances both descending and climbing experiences, while delivering a bottomless ride feel.
A suggested sag range of 28 – 34% allows the rider to tune the feel of the bike; from a firm and snappy jump and slash mode, to a more supple and active full on party mode. Wherever you end up, you can focus on the trail without remotes, levers or knobs. Just grab your bike and GiddyUp.
POWERED BY YOU, ASSISTED BY SHIMANO
The Repeater comes equipped with a Shimano EP8 system that delivers 85Nm of torque, 250W continuous power and 500W peak power. All build levels come with Shimano’s top of the line full color display, making it easy to tell which mode you are in with a quick glance.
The Shimano 630Wh battery is easily removable with a 4mm allen wrench so you can easily swap to a spare for increased range, or get more laps while your other battery is charging. The full Shimano system means there are no custom wires, plugs or proprietary chargers, so you can find replacement parts anywhere and even borrow a charger from a friend.
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.
Transition Repeater Builds
At Transition Bikes we take pride in the quality of our products and are stoked to offer a lifetime warranty for the original owner as well as our stellar crash replacement program. We got your back so you don’t have to worry about your bike.
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.
Collet main pivot technology improves rear end stiffness and keeps your pivot hardware tight. Additional bearing shields prevent bearing contamination when washing your bike or riding in wet conditions.
Frame & Motor Protection
We keep your bike rides quiet and your frame safe from damage with fully integrated, flush-mounted rubber chainstay and seatstay protection. The custom low profile plastic skid plate protects your motor and helps you slide over rocks and logs in the trail without damaging your motor.
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.
Enduro MAX Bearings
We exclusively use Enduro MAX suspension specific bearings in standard sizes that are readily available worldwide. Dual bearings are used at the dropout pivots for frame stiffness and additional c-clips lock the rocker bearings in place under torsional loads.
Gear Accessory Mount
Our underside top-tube accessory mount allows you to carry a spare tube or other goodies safely on your frame in case you are looking to ditch the backpack.
Hidden Cable Routing
All cables and wires are routed internally and pass from the front triangle to the rear triangle hidden from view and safely away from trailside obstacles.
Headset Cable Routing
The Repeater features a ZS56/ZS66 headset size that is compatible with both 1.5 and 1.8 tapered forks. The cables and wires are cleanly routed through the upper headset cup for a tidy look and universal compatibility with right/rear or left/rear brake lever setups.
Water Bottle Compatibility
We keep your water bottle clean inside the front triangle so you can keep hydrated without worrying about mud making it to your mouth.
Universal Derailleur Hanger
The Repeater features a SRAM Universal Derailleur Hanger that protects your derailleur by pivoting back and out of the way under impacts. It improves shifting performance, guarantees better alignment, works with all drivetrains, and is available anywhere.
