RaceFace are replacing their Deus range of components with the new Turbine collection for 2011, which includes aluminium cranks, handlebars and stems.


The new trail/all-mountain Turbine crank comes in 2×10, 3×10 and double-plus-bashguard configurations and will be available with either a titanium or steel axle, with prices starting at €319.90.

Race Face have two new Turbine bars, the 600mm-wide Flat  and 700mm Flat Wide, priced at €74.90 and €89.90, respectively. There’s also a Turbine stem to complement the bars in 60, 70, 90 and 100mm lengths.

If you’re after some lightweight chainrings, RaceFace have been busy machining some new single rings which can be run with both nine- and 10-speed setups. The 104mm rings come in 32, 34, 26, 38 or 40-tooth variants and are reversible, with a different pattern on each side. They’ll be €44.90 each.

Other highlights of the new Race Face range include a 785mm-wide Atlas FR freeride/downhill bar in stealth black, which will be €89.90 euros, plus a matching direct mount stem.
