Taking a slight divergence from mountain bikes without leaving the dirt, grass and mud, Turner is rolling out the all-new Cyclosys cyclocross bike. They’ve also updated the venerable Burner full suspension mountain bike and will offer the Sultan 29er as a 27.5+ bike. Full details are coming from Sea Otter’s pits, but here’s the preview.
The Cyclosys has been under Dave Turner’s butt on the race scene for about five years, being built and ridden as a personal project. Now, finally, he’s turning it into a production item for all to enjoy.
“In the 30 plus years I’ve been in mountain biking, I’ve seen the sport and the racing scene evolve and change over the years,” Turner says. “Some for better, some for worse. What I experienced at my first CX race in 2010 reminded me of the “good ol’ days” of MTB racing: a great sense of community and camaraderie, and a good dose of competitiveness.”
To make the most of those days, the bike uses modern features like a carbon fork, 43mm tire clearance, slick internal cable routing ports and (from the looks of it) geometry versatile enough to take it out for a day on the backroads.
