The Turner RFX, first introduced in 1999, began life as one of the first purpose-built ‘free ride’ bikes renowned for excellent descending manners and efficient pedaling in a world where few bikes could do both. Subsequent models set new standards for longevity under the harshest conditions, with most RFX’s still in use today.
Fast forward to 2016 and the RFX is better than ever, using Toray High Modulus Carbon Fiber we were able to tune the ride of the new RFX to maximize its enduroability. As to be expected from a Turner Bike, there is fantastic tire clearance even with massive 2.4 tires, 160mm travel, dw-Link suspension, and an all new headtube dimension allowing customization of the head angle in half degree increments to a very slack 65° with a 160 fork. Some could build it up light as a long-travel trail bike, while others will build it up as a mid-travel Park slayer. In between is the true purpose of the RFX: Enduro domination. Whether you are riding the gnarliest lo local trails or the Enduro World Series, let the RFX redefine your experience.
C6 Turner Carbon Honed to ride like a Turner.
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.
