What is ART? In this case, it’s the beautiful new All Road Titanium version of the Turner Cyclosys. Fitting somewhere between a pure bred cyclocross bike and a gravel crusher, Turner prefers the term ‘All Road’ when referring to this bike.
That’s because it’s equally at home rolling on 700 x 28mm slicks, 32-35mm CX knobbies, or up to 38mm gravel tires. While it won’t fit the biggest gravel tires out there, the trade off is that switching to road slicks won’t affect the ride height as much. Because of that, it remains a bit more versatile.
Built around ‘all road’ forks from ENVE and Whisky with shorter 382/383mm axle to crown measurements, the forks offer similar 700 x 38mm tire clearance.
Details like the ‘mud cutter’ chainstay bridge are meant to help with mud shedding, and the frame features a shapely seat tube where it joins the T47 threaded bottom bracket for improved stiffness – without being too stiff.
Elsewhere, the 3/2.5 titanium frame with custom butted tubing sneaks in details like a minimalist 140mm flat mount for the rear brake, and internal cable routing with bolt on cable ports.
Compatible with 2x or 1x build kits, the ART will be sold in three different builds – SRAM Apex 1×11, SRAM Force 1×11, or Shimano Ultegra 2×11. It will also be available as a frame set with a Whisky or ENVE fork. Turner is taking pre-orders for the ART now, with pricing starting at $2,500 for frameset or $4,205 for complete bikes with plenty of options for upgrades.
