The Relay ALLOY GX PNW packs more travel, while sporting a smaller rear wheel than the Relay without the PNW suffix. The intention behind this configuration is crystal clear: with this setup, the Transition is destined to transform into the ultimate shred sled.
Even steep ramps are surprisingly easy to climb with the Fazua motor. With its boost function, which provides 450 watts of support for a short period of time, the Fazua Ride 60 reduces the gap between light and classic full-power motors. At the moment, hardly any other light motor offers such a good combination of natural support, dynamic power delivery and capability. Fans of XXL tours are greatly restricted by the Relay ALLOY GX PNW , because of its low range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the Relay ALLOY GX PNW in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (9000) .

The high-quality Fox chassis also takes away the fear of rough root sections. The thick 38mm stanchions on the fork provide an extra dose of steering precision and performance. At the rear, the steel spring shock absorber provides maximum sensitivity. Bad brakes reduce the riding pleasure. Fortunately, this is not the case with the Relay ALLOY GX PNW. With their four pistons and large brake rotors the TRP brake brakes good. The narrow #reifen_inch_breite Schwalbe tires do not do this Enduros range of use any justice. In our opinion, Transition has saved weight in the wrong place here. Taking a holistic approach also includes looking at the gearing and components. The components are of good qualtiy and offer no reason for criticism here. When it comes to the geometry, Transition does not go completely crazy. The head tube angle and reach values were chosen with care. The result: A balanced riding behaviour with a good combination of playfulness and straight-line stability. Due to the short chainstays , when climbing steep sections, it requires active weight shifting to prevent the front wheel from lifting. With its 22,63 kg, the Relay ALLOY GX PNW is one of the lighter E-bikes. The competition is often significantly heavier.
