The Burner is back and it's better than ever!
Frame design legend Dave Turner introduced a complete revamp of his Sultan, 5 Spot and Flux frames last year. This brought them totally up to tapered fork compatible, thru axle equipped, post mount brake style trail spec, but there was one classic Turner still missing from the line-up. But now it's back and it's better than ever.
The new Burner all-rounder is the perfect bike to showcase the increased control and smoothness but retained responsiveness advantages of the new 27.5in wheel size to its maximum potential. Dave's meticulously ride tested geometry and DW Link suspension tweaks mean it's already got rave reviews from the bike mags too, turning self-confessed "hissy fit" testing days into instant confidence and enthusiasm even on the most technical trails.
While other brands have vanished or grown so big they've abandoned US building, Dave stuck totally to the core values he started with 20 years ago. He's switched to new, but ultra experienced Oregon based builders Zen when long term frame fabricator Sapa shut their bike division last summer. Otherwise Dave and his 6 strong Turner team in Murrieta California, handle all the design, admin and tolerance checks of each and every frame. They also add the unique super durable Kevlar journal bearings, Zerx grease injection ports and custom shocks that create Turner's beautifully balanced, ride honed handling characteristics and legendary longevity.
Paint and anodizing prep all gets done in house too. So while you have to dig a little deeper into your pocket to get yourself a Turner, you'll be riding a fastidiously hand finished masterpiece rather than a mass produced Taiwanese trail iron.
