Flux

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 headtube 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 it’s design and suspension kinematics it can truly unleash on challenging descents and rip like a much bigger bike.

GEOMETRY NOTES

• Rider inspired, trail tuned – Every Turner goes through a rigorous R & D process by David Turner himself. Fine tuning the ride of a bike is as much an artform as it is a science. From plotting numbers via ergonomics and kinesiology to getting dirty and diving into the arduous task of collecting real-world data. Deriving a bike’s geometry is a fiddle task that is best left to those with an aptitude for it. Lucky for us we have a ride tuning genius in our midst.

• 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!

PURCHASE GUARANTEE

Why offer a Guarantee?

Simply put, we know that you are going to love your new Turner mountain bike. But given the chance that it just doesn’t seem to fit right we want to ensure that you will be a happy Turner Bikes Rider in the long run.

There is a reason why most Turner Riders are ‘lifers’ when it comes to brand loyalty; Our customer service rocks and our bikes love to devour rocks (with grinning anticipation)! But in the end the choice is yours and we will stand behind that choice.

 

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-links and pivots are designed to deliver lasting performance. By combining the strongest materials and the smoothest, most durable bearings available, we are confident that the Flux will provide hours of fun for the ultimate singletrack experience.

 

27.5 INCH

Our trail bike lineup now has two different wheel sizes to choose from – 27.5 inch & 29 inch.

Now you may ask why? Well as a bike manufacture that strives to build the best riding trail mountain bikes on the market we realize that the most important factor in how a bike performs is the rider.

Yes, that means you. Everyone has a different size, shape, and personal riding style. And since each model is designed around that wheel size, they will all handle slightly different and fit your personal riding style better. Bottom line, our bikes are tailored to fit you and your riding intentions beyond your expectations.

 

DROPPER READY

The Flux v4.0 has two new features to make this beast more dropper-post friendly:

1) It now has stealth/ covert/ integra cable routing. Looking for a cleaner way to control your post, well the Flux now has a port at the base of the seattube to run the dropper line in a ‘hush-hush’ sort of way!

2) 150mm dropper compatible. By dropping the length of the Seattube roughly 1in (25mm) we make sure that almost everyone can run the dropper they want.

 

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.

 

PRESSFIT 30 BOTTOM BRACKET

Bigger bearing = better performance & longer service life; less corrosion (nylon cup barrier /lack of dissimilar materials/ Galvanic Corrosion); larger 30mm spindle allows stiffer and lighter crank assembly with up to 18% lighter than conventional threaded system; there is no risk of cross threading just to top it off! Smarter = Better.

 

C6 TURNER CARBON

Ride tuning is accomplished through a carefully crafted carbon layup schedule and precise resin selection to optimize the feel of the terrain being transmitted through the frame. Although impressive stiffness was a goal, we did not want the frame to feel like a block of wood with a harsh ride. We tuned specific ride characteristics into the carbon frame to provide a snappy, yet controlled ride experience. Using Toray High Modulus Carbon Fiber, we were able to exceed our goals with our iteration of how a full-suspension carbon mountain bike should ride and perform.

 

44/56MM TAPER HEAD TUBE

Head Tube engineering: The Flux head tube requires press fit bearings, not road bike style bearings that sit loosely in the frame which could damage the expensive carbon front triangle if you have the headset come loose and are forced to ride a long way with the fork rattling back and forth. With press fit bearing races any maladjustment damage will be in the less expensive headset, not your carbon front triangle.

 

142×12 THRU AXLE

The Flux is purpose built for use with 27.5 inch wheels and relies on 142×12 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.

 

DESIGNED IN THE USA

Every aspect of the Turner Flux is designed and engineered in the USA. From start-to-finish we have kept very tight tolerances to insure that our carbon frames ride like a Turner. All R & D and proto-type testing is done in-house by our qualified team.

All of our carbon mountain bikes are made overseas at a facility known for holding the highest standards of manufacturing carbon fiber frames…

 

DOWNTUBE ROCK Pad

Made to fit the Turner Flux from a durable foam material to deflect light trail debris. Sound deadening, light weight, and functional, this rock pad is secured with 3M adhesive and protects against trail debris that would otherwise chip and scratch the the downtube.

 

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.

 

NO MORE ZIP TIES

The Flux features user-friendly and easy to service external cable routing. Cables steer clear of impact zones negating the need to run them internally, and makes them easy to access for occasional service or replacement. And because the routing is simple and clean without unnecessary bends, the Flux delivers the quick and crisp shifting you expect from a premium quality bike.

    The Flux Carbon is a no-nonsense trail bike that is efficient to pedal yet comfortable at speed and in the rough. It’s simple design and attention to details make it one of my favorite bikes ever.

  2. 5 out of 5

    Just got in from a ride around Park City on my new carbon Flux. A super trail bike! I think it has been mislabeled, it reminds of the beloved 5 Spot!

  3. 5 out of 5

    Just picked up a new Carbon Flux 4.0 after my last Aluminum Flux 3.0 was stolen. What a difference! Ride quality, responsiveness, and handling are all noticeably better. Perfect for the XC/Trail style riding we do. Can’t wait to ride it with Carbon Knight wheels.

  4. 5 out of 5

    Comparing the carbon to the previous alloy Flux version….the carbon floats more over the chatter-ruff stuff. The alloy Flux was a fun bike but the carbon is even better, and I was completely stoked on the alloy version.
