Show us your Turner sultans
I can’t show you either, but I can tell you I test rode both of them last week in the States on holiday. Both incredible, fantastic pedalling, and great handling bikes. For comparison, I also demo’d a Niner RIP9, a TallBoy LT, and a Yeti SB66, and the Turners are the bikes I enjoyed most (although the Yeti came in close, and I must admit I am a bit of a Turner fanboi). The Sultan unsurprising felt longer and not quite as ‘peppy’ as the Burner, but steamrollered everything, and was immensely confidence inspiring. For the type of trails I ride though, I’m saving for the Burner – just a bit more fun 8)
You’d not go wrong with either……….. Have a look on the mtbr turner forum for builds etc.Posted 4 years ago
I have a large sultan. It’s definitely a big bike, but tends to disappear when I’m riding. It’s not that much of a steam roller IMO, although you could build it to be. It’s wheel base is definitely longer than some, but I didn’t have any trouble shoogling it around the hair pins at Ciclo Montana a few weeks ago. I do have a fair amount of mass with which to boss it about with, so maybe that has something to do with it. I love it’s composure on technical trails, which suits my tastes in riding.Posted 4 years ago
@dickie-neither, I consider myself to be a fairly well proportioned lanky streak of piss. It’s an XL
@rickon – reach feels perfect for me with the 85mm on there. It doesn’t feel slow to turn, more that it’s the only time I’ve been aware of the wheelbase through tight singletrack with very rapid changes of direction. Was thinking of an XXL with a shorter stem but silverfish didn’t import any. Might borrow a 70mm off a mate just to see thoughPosted 4 years agorichiethesilverfishMember

We did (and still do) bring XXL in but for obvious reasons they’re special order only. We can generally get them to you within 4-6 weeks though.
Our northern rep is 6’5″ and has an XXL.Posted 4 years ago
