New bike, Turner RFX 2016

This year, for a few reasons,  I’ve decided to build one do-it-all bike instead of one enduro and one downhill bike.

It has to be stable and suspended for the lift assisted riding we do over the summer in the Portes du Soleil but still be a reasonable climber for… the rest of the year!

With its adjustable head angle, 160mm of DW link managed travel and carbon frame, the new RFX ticked all the boxes.
