Transition Covert 2009

"The Covert is our 6" travel quiver-killing do-it-all bike for the rider that needs ultimate versatility. It's not a DH or freeride bike or an XC racer or trail bike but it can handle a little bit of everything in the hands of a capable rider. The new Covert sports a refined frame that perfectly balances weight and strength. Weighting in at a respectable 6.7 lbs without rear shock, and builds up to a 28-32 lb bike made for efficient long days in the saddle.

At the core of the Covert is our completely new proprietary tubeset designed in house. The new tubes create a stronger frame with better contact points for welding shock mounts, pivots, and the headtube. In addition to the new tubes the Covert has a one piece CNC'd rocker link to increase stiffness and strength, as well as new dropouts and chainstay/seatstay yokes. All these new features not only add to the aesthetics of the bike but increase strength while shedding weight.

Rear suspension is handled by the Fox RP23 large volume or DHX 5.0 Air. The shock rate on the Covert is slightly progressive with only a 2.8% change throughout the stroke. This allows for consistent feel throughout the travel and allows for easy tuning and setup of the shock. As the Covert goes through it's travel, the leverage decreases slightly and allows the natural progressiveness of the air shock to ramp up and soak up large bumps and hits. This also gives the bike excellent small bump sensitivity and feel at the top of the stroke while allowing the rider to use the travel without a harsh bottom out.

Alongside the Covert's structural refinement, the geometry has progressed to be modeled around a 160mm singlecrown fork, such as a Fox 36 or Lyric instead of the traditional all mountain standard of 140mm. The new geometry maintains the all mountain roots of the old Covert which is very climb friendly and nimble, but gets slackened out just a bit to make room for the larger fork without raising the BB. The result is a do-it-all package for the rider who wants their bike to handle whatever the trail throws at them."
