Poking around Park City before the official start of Press Camp this afternoon, we came across the Turner crew- and a fleet of shiny looking Flux. For 2014, the US-made Flux is moving to the same 27in wheels as the excellent Burner. A cross-country or trail rider’s all ’rounder with 120mm of travel and a .75lb weight savings over the 140mm, 7lb Burner. In a first for the company, the reborn Flux is also making use of hydroformed tubing for increased standover and fork clearance. More details after the jump…
The New Turner Flux 27.5
Murietta, Calif. (June 24, 2013)
High performance bicycle designer and manufacturer Turner Bicycles reintroduces the Flux with 27.5 inch wheels aimed at the avid xc trail rider. This American made bike incorporates 6061 aluminum and solidifies Turner Suspension Bicycles’ long standing tradition of superb handling, uncompromised quality and dw-link efficiency.
The new Flux 27.5 has been completely redesigned from the ground up to take your pursuit for exceptional trail riding further & faster than ever before. It now features 27.5 inch wheels to get that perfect balance of trail dominating control and the playful agility for technical twisty singletrack. Its slacker head angle and lower bb contribute to a package that will eat up every foot of trail without sacrificing the nimble traits of its xc lineage. The updated dw-link kinematics tuned specifically for the 27.5 inch wheels of the Flux ensure that eats up terrain while maintaining pedaling efficiency. Travel has been bumped up to 120 millimeters with an all new shaped tubeset to save weight and be torsionally stiffer. The new Flux 27.5 is not simply a rehash of old ideas; this machine is a perfect example of xc trail bike evolution!
