The Flux is a new generation trail ripper. The lightweight carbon chassis and 120 mm of suspension creates a lively and flickable ride, but its modern geometry and 67.5 degree head tube angle make it equally well suited for tackling more aggressive terrain. Much of the ride quality comes from the Flux’s DW-link which is engineered to provide amazing bump absorption without pedal feedback. It inspires confidence when it’s held wide-open, but doesn’t sag and put you in the backseat when you want to stomp on the gas. The Flux weighs in close to XC race bikes, but because of its design and suspension kinematics, it can truly unleash on challenging descents and rip like a much bigger bike.Construction
Turner’s renowned construction utilizes carbon for its impact strength and durability. But carbon offers more than faceless utility. It also allows us to build seemingly impossible shapes that serve both function and form. Turner bikes are recognizable the world over for their enduring quality and timeless aesthetic. As carbon technology continues to progress, we remain focused on to creating machines that both ride and look like bikes you want to ride today and for years to come.
Internal dropper post routing enables clean function free of excess housing, and the detachment method on the spec’d post allows for easy service and removal when needing to pack the bike for travel. The rear of the bike has practical design features aimed at aiding both performance and maintenance. The brake caliper is conveniently located on the seatstay to facilitate easy adjustments and pad replacements, helping ensure excellent brake function. The mount features replaceable nuts to eliminate the possibility of stripping threads out of the frame, and the dropout houses a lightweight and smooth-functioning quick release through axle.Engineered for Speed
The DW-link equipped Flux was designed for chassis rigidity, pedaling efficiency and responsive shock actuation to manage the full spectrum of hits along the trail. Because the linkage provides a variable axle path and is position-sensitive, the bike does not squat under load, delivering clean power transfer while climbing and accelerating. As the axle moves farther into its path, the DW-link works with the front suspension providing a balanced feel and lends a bottomless quality on chunky, big hit descents. It really is the best of both worlds, bringing together the finest elements of Turner and DW design in one bike.
The Flux is purpose built for use with 27.5 inch wheels and relies on 142x12 mm rear spacing. By taking this specific approach, we have eliminated the need to look to Boost spacing to help support multiple wheel sizes as is currently the fashion among some brands. The 142 mm standard is a fantastic complement to this chassis which is optimized to work perfectly with 27.5 inch wheels and DW-link kinematics. And as an added benefit, it allows you to continue using wheels that may already be in your quiver.
Based on rider feedback, the Flux will be offered with both Shimano 2x11 and 1x11 builds. The frame is designed to work with a direct mount front derailleur and is also Di2 compatible for those looking for an electronic shifting option.
