GET A FEEL FOR THE TRAIL WITH THIS ALL-NEW ALUMINIUM HARDTAIL MADE FOR ASPIRING SINGLETRACK RIDERS. IT FEATURES STABLE, FAST-ROLLING 29-INCH OR MORE-PLAYFUL 27.5-INCH WHEELS SO YOU CAN PUSH THE PACE ON CLIMBS AND LET LOOSE ON THE DESCENTS.

Built on a new lightweight ALUXX aluminium frame that features classic hardtail design plus the balanced riding characteristics of either larger diameter 29-inch or 27.5-inch wheels, Talon is a great choice for XC or light trail terrain. The frame geometry is specifically designed to adapt to its respective wheel size and either an 80mm or 100mm suspension fork (depending on frame size). It’s a confident ride that’s perfect for ambitious riders who want to take their off-road skills to the next level.

KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS

ALUXX aluminium frameset is hand-built in-house by the world leader in aluminium engineering.

Balance and stability

Frame geometry is designed to optimise the balance and roll-over capabilities of 29-inch wheels or the liveliness of 27.5-inch wheels (depending on frame size).

XC control

Suspension fork offers either 80mm or 100mm of smooth travel for added XC control. Please note, some models may either come with a Rockshox or Giant SXC32-2 fork, please check with your retailer before ordering.
