Review: Turner Burner


The Burner name was first given to the original Turner, a full-suspension cross-country bike released in the mid-‘90s when the “NORBA standard” hardtail dominated the market. Over the years, the Burner evolved and took some hiatuses from production. This latest version is fast becoming the standard mountain bike of the 20-teens, the 27.5 trail bike.

Just like the rest of the Turner Bikes lineup, the Burner uses Dave Weagle’s well-regarded dw-link to offer 140mm of efficient travel. The dw-link system is designed to resist suspension movement from both the drivetrain and rider weight transfer when accelerating. Across the board, everyone here at Dirt Rag is a fan of this system.
