Turner Highline Raffle Link
The Turner Highline was introduced in 2006, refined in 2007, and fully dialed in 2008. It’s overbuilt (if you can say that about any bike with North Shore purposes in mind) with a 1.5î oversized headtube and a massive top tube and downtube. Weighing in at just 10.5 lbs, it’s now designed to withstand the 20 ft drops, rip downhills, and leap Capital T” in a single bound — everything that defines extreme freeriding, yet still climb.
Turner uses a custom Fox DHX 5.0 coil shock, to provide the frame’s 7.1″of plush travel. Turner also refined the geometry in 2007 (shorter top tube, improved standover, and slightly increased head angle), and now the Highline’s versatility is off the charts. Each pivot features full complement needle (roller) bearings to ensure a smooth, stable suspension stroke.
Ventana El Fuego
Ventana El Fuego Raffle Link
The new Ventana El Fuego takes super light, full suspension racing design to the next level. The El Fuego is just as laterally stiff as ever but with rear travel expanded to 3.5 inches, El Fuego is Ventana’s high profile racing frame all primed and ready to smoke the competition. Ventanta El Fuego is engineered to be lightweight without compromising its high performance suspension, El Fuego transfers power smoothly and efficiently with every pedal-stroke, even under extreme terrain conditions. And El Fuego’s superior performance on the trails is matched by the beauty and craftsmanship of its frame design.
This frame is only available for special order and will normally take longer than 7-10 business days. Other sizes and options available to be ordered.
