The EMTB for mountain bikers. That's how the Canadians describe the Relay CARBON GX. So, is it the ultimate ride for trail-hungry riders?
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. The short range unfortunately limits the tour radius quite significantly.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the Relay CARBON GX in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (10000) .

The good Fox chassis confidently dampens small and medium bumps. The mid-range brakes from SRAM do their job but could be a bit firmer. The power of the four pistons setup is only average. At the drivetrain components and the rest of the parts, Transition uses average parts. The handling of the bike is pleasantly balanced due to the moderate geometry. This allows you to intuitively control the bike over the trails. The low bottom bracket height is a party pooper for the handling on the trail. On other bikes, you are more centrally located behind the handlebar. Due to the short chainstays , when climbing steep sections, it requires active weight shifting to prevent the front wheel from lifting. The scale stays at 19,97 kg with this model. That makes the Relay CARBON GX one of the light All Mountains.

Conclusion


Expirience with the Transition Relay CARBON GX

Overall, the Relay CARBON GX is, due to a very good handling and a good chassis is a good all-rounder for trips on insanely technical trails. Only a middle ground motor and a mediocre brake system slightly tarnish the otherwise successful overall picture.
