Turner Flux features DW-link, forgoes Boost and multiple wheel trends

MURRIETA, Calif. (BRAIN) — The Turner Flux is a carbon fiber “trail ripper” with 120mm of rear travel. The company said it was designed to offer a lively and flickable ride, with 650b wheels, DW-link suspension, modern geometry and standard (142×12) rear axle spacing.

The DW-link design includes a linkage that provides a variable axle path and is position-sensitive. The company said the design does not squat under load, and delivers good 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 company said.

The Flux has external cable routing for brakes and shifters, with internal dropper post routing. The shift cable routing was designed to be simple and clean without unnecessary bends for the best shifting performance. The Flux will be offered with both 2×11 and 1×11 builds. The frame is designed to work with a direct mount front derailleur and is also Di2 compatible.
