There’s no doubt this is the year of the 27plus bonanza, and Turner is one of the first brands out of the gate with a revised Sultan built around the new wheel size. With an overall diameter roughly equal to that of a 29er, modifying the design was simply a matter of making things a bit wider, naturally aided by the new wider 148 mm hubs and 110 mm forks. Don’t think of it as a fat bike, Turner says it is built to be a full-bore enduro machine with traction to spare.
The Burner is the keystone of the Turner lineup, and we were enamored when we tested it a few years back. For 2015 it get subtle tweaks like a new tubeset, stealth dropper post routing and a shorter seat tube to make room for longer dropper posts. The aluminum frames are still 100 percent made in America.
It’s well known that David Turner has been a huge cyclocross fan for years, so it’s only natural that he bring his latest passion to his mountain bike brand in the form of the new Cyclosys. The versatile cyclocross/gravel bike is equally at home inside the tape or out on the open road, with plenty of clearance for 43c tires.
