The Flux Pro is the ultimate union of premier components and unparalleled Turner performance. You know who you are, the core mountain bike rider who doesn't settle for something lesser because you need the right tools to push your own limits. . . which means you need a bike that can take the challenge and beg for more. The Flux Pro is the perfect xc trail bike to pedal, descend, and hit repeat. This ride loves to do it all; a perfect balance of stability and aggression with a quick-witted personality to take your xc trail riding beyond your expectations.

With two honed build-kit options, the Flux pro will be ready whether it is hammering out the miles day after day or looking for that racers edge. The drivetrain comes as a choice of either Shimano XTR+ or SRAM XX1. The Shimano XTR+ build comes as a 3x10 but can be changed to a 2x10 at no extra charge. Then the SRAM XX1 is the new 1x11 TYPE 2 drivetrain with the new 10x42 cassette matched up to a 34 tooth chainring.

We have packed all the essentials into this kit but now we are now offering the option to upgrade the wheels to carbon Enve and the seat post to a KS Lev dropper post to raise the bar even more. Then backed up by a host of top quality components from Thomson, Cane Creek, WTB Saddles, ODI grips, and others; The Flux Pro will not only turn heads but ride flawlessly. With the promise of performing and enduring when seconds is the difference between being king of the mountain or being just another mountain biker.

Geometry Key

* Inseam measurements are fine for pant shopping, but have no place in mountain bike shopping. Leg length is what is important as rarely does anyone buy pants that have the same inseam as their actual leg length. Since no one rides barefoot the leg length should be measured with your mountain bike shoes on standing against a wall and with a carpenters square or large sized book firmly raised into the crotch and square to the wall is how to figure leg length.

Turner Bikes measures ‘Standover’ height 6” / 150mm in front of the BB center, that is roughly the MIDDLE of the Top Tube, not at the actual lowest point way back at the junction with the Seat Tube as some companies do. This allows for plenty of standover clearance without the nose of the seat crushing into your spine!

Features

dw-link

Simultaneously engineered anti-squat and wheel rate curves are the mathematical formulas that make dw-link the world's most efficient and traction-aiding suspension system.

The dw-link is the only design on the market that is able to control unwanted bob and still remain active in more gear combinations than any other design. Dave Weagle has been refining the mathematics of optimum pivot locations of the dw-link on everything from World Cup winning downhill bikes to short travel XC flyers.

 

journal bearing system

The use of journal bearings, or 'bushings' as some in the bike industry call them, is a perfect solution for the high shock load and abusive limited range of motion that bicycle suspensions put on the pivot system.

Our Journal Bearing system utilizes hard anodized aluminum pivot shafts and Kevlar composite bearings. Since it is not made of steel this system is not capable of rusting and has substantial weight savings over its cartridge style counterparts. Then with the zerk lubrication fittings found at every pivot location, our Journal bearing system has an unrivaled service life, even in the harshest of environments.

The design of our Journal Bearing System is built into the frame to work seamlessly with the suspension. By not using an off-the shelf bearing we are able make use of the entire width of the pivot area. This eliminates any torsional flex in the back end and is why our bikes have legendary handling & stability.

 

finite element analysis (fea)

A mathematical technique for analyzing stress points, which breaks down a physical structure into substructures called 'finite elements'. These finite elements and their interrelationships are then converted into equation form and solved mathematically.

We use an FEA computer program to aide in the design of every Turner frame. This helps us maximize the strength and minimize the weight to insure a perfect balance is acheived as form follows function is the convention we adhere by.

 

anodized frame finish

Due to the tough nature of anodizing and the permanence of lazer etching it fits well with the extremely long life riders get out of their Turner Bikes.

 

improved cable routing

In order to make sure that no one had unwanted contact with the bike we created a special machined part to pass the rear derailleur cable directly through the tube on the right side of the rear end.

 

Made In the USA

For twenty years now Turner Bikes has been producing American-made aluminum mountain bikes, which is a fact we are very proud of.

We may flaunt it about here and there but this is only the case because we still believe that if we are going to do something, we are going to do it right! Every Turner frame is designed and honed to perfection for one very important purpose; the ride.

44 headtube

This head tube is perfectly sized to work with a tapered steerer fork and the new 44XX lower head set bearing from Cane Creek. Stiffness gains of up to 20% can be had with a tapered steerer fork. With the upper bearing bore now at 44mm, the rider has the ability to run a ZeroStack headset on top. This setup will lower the hand position up to 10mm for more control on steep climbs and fast descents, where front end traction is enhanced through transferring the riders weight over the handle bar. Our 'just right' head tube design allows for the biggest bearing size on the bottom for a long head set life.

 

post-mount disc brakes

The biggest reason why Turner Bikes chose to pioneer the use of post-mount rear brake mounting was to eliminate the adapter. All disc brake manufacturers and all new fork designs had already gone to the post-mount calipers due to the ease of set up and the increased rigidity provided. Plus, with the decision to create the post-mount rear dropout we removed two bolts that were doing nothing but adding weight and potential flex. An exceptional design begins with simplicity and commonsense.

 

threaded zerk grease fittings

Zerks are stainless steel, ultra compact, custom made proprietory fittings to aide in the lubrication and maintenance of all the pivots on a Turner frame. It only makes sense that a machine that is used in the rough and many times sees wet conditions, that it would have a way to push the grit and water out easily and on regular basis. This is one of the key features that makes the ownership of a Turner cost effective over the long haul.

 

TriLobular Shaped Tubes

The new Flux 27.5 is taking everything we have learned from working with aluminum so far to produce a lighter and stiffer ride specifically honed for xc trail riding. This is the first 6061 aluminum model we've made that does not have a tower gusset on the top tube to seat tube junction.

Instead we sat down with our engineers to figure out how we could manipulate the tubing in such a way to have the benefits of that extra gusset but without the added weight penalty. Our new tubeset for the Flux 27.5 uses a two stage forming and heat treating process to manipulate the butted tubing into this 'TriLobular' shaped tubing that accomplishes this goal.

 

Reviews

Best of everything: The Turner Flux 27.5 TR is a fantastic all-rounder. We had as much fun navigating tight switchbacks as we did on faster descents. This thing eats singletrack. . . .

For years, the Flux was Turner Bikes’ 26-inch cross-country race bike, but last fall production ceased on this model. The market for a 100mm travel 26-inch bike was (and is) close to non-existent in the United States. But David Turner wasn’t ready to let that name . . .

The Turner Flux has been in the range for a long time. First as a 100mm, 26in wheeled XC bike with a four bar Horst link suspension, then an ICT ‘faux bar’ linkage and then as a 100mm XC bike with a DW Link. It’s now evolved again to fit 27.5in wheels and along . . .

After a brief hiatus, Turner Bicycles has brought back the much-liked Flux nameplate. This time, however, it's no longer a 100mm travel, 26in-wheeled full-suspension race bike but a more versatile 120mm travel machine built around 27.5in (650b) wheels. The good news . . .

A few years back, Turner decided to discontinue the Flux, a model first born nearly 20 years ago. Bikes with 26-inch wheels just weren’t selling. With the massive in-flux (giggle) of the wheel size that the industry can’t even agree on what to call, the folks at . . .

After a year’s absence, the Flux model returns to the Turner Bikes lineup looking hardly anything like its old self. Turner’s Flux is back, this time on 27.5-inch wheels David Turner introduced the Flux in 2004 as a 100-millimeter, 26-inch-wheeled Horst Link . . .

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 . . .
