Turnagain components is growing. As the fat bike component specific arm of The Fat Bike Company which also runs Borealis Bikes, Turnagain is now offering fat bike hubs and new 100mm rims along with front derailleur adapters. This means the Borealis hubs now carry the Turnagain logo along with some welcome improvements.

Joining the FR80, the new Turnagain FR100 offers a similar design with a 100mm wide, eyeletted single wall fat bike rim. The cutout and pinned design is also tubeless compatible with the use of a tubeless valve, rim strip, and tubeless tape.
The 32 spoke symmetric rim design comes in at 936g on our scale, and will retail for $160 a piece in silver, red, black, and blue. Available in 3 weeks.
Combined with the Turnagain hubs, you can build a complete wheel that comes in around 1329g for the front. The hubs will be available in 150 and 197mm widths and include bigger bearings and improved end cap design with better seals compared to the original Borealis hubs. Turnagain hubs will retail for $160 for the front and $300 for the rear.
It’s hard to believe but on the day we saw Borealis/Turnagain at Eurobike the company was exactly 1 year old. They’ve certainly come a long way in a short time!
