The Relay CARBON XO PNW axs 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. The short range unfortunately limits the tour radius quite significantly.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the Relay CARBON XO PNW axs in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (12000) .

Even on rough terrain, the Relay CARBON XO PNW axs doesn't lose its composure thanks to the excellent Fox chassis, giving you a lot of control. 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. At the brakes, Transition instals upper class brakes with four pistons and large brake rotors from TRP. 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. Short chainstays and make the front end light in steep climbs. To keep the front wheel on the ground, you need to consciously lean forward. With its 20,64 kg, the Relay CARBON XO PNW axs is one of the lighter E-bikes. The competition is often significantly heavier.
