Turner Sultan in Stealth Black
Everyone knows that I am a sucker for all black bikes. Jason just got his pearl white Sultan back from Turner with a new look.
Before – White Frame Seen in Gallery Below
After – The Stealth Black
The Sultan is one of the most lusted after 29er full suspension bikes. With 4″ of travel, this bike feels like it has 5″. Made out of 5 Spot tubing, this bike is a great all around machine. With the introduction of the 20mm 29er Reba coming soon, there should be some great AM styled Sultan’s in the near future.
From the Turner website:
The Sultan is a full-suspension XC frame for riders who love the speed, plushness, and flow provided by 29-inch wheels. Tow big 29-inch wheels spinning down the trail… For some guys it’s the ultimate feeling in off-road riding. We took a conservative approach in designing the 2008 Turner Sultan 29er. The result is an awesome trail bike that exploits the larger wheel’s advantages (faster speed, bigger tire contact patch, and greater gyroscopic stability) without affecting the performance characteristics that every Turner frame is famous for. The Sultan’s geometry is designed to work with, not against, 29-inch wheels to achieve neutral handling, and can be easily set up with a variety of 3 to 5 inch travel forks. The Sultan features a big wheel variant of our famed Turner rocker suspension to deliver the same plushness and pedaling efficiency as our 26-inch frames.
