Details

PUSH THE PACE ON CLIMBS, LET LOOSE ON THE DESCENTS. THIS ALUMINUM HARDTAIL GIVES YOU A FEEL FOR THE TRAIL WITH BALANCED, CONFIDENT HANDLING AND A PLUSH SUSPENSION FORK.

KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS

Proven alloy performance
ALUXX aluminum frameset is hand-built in-house by the world leader in aluminum engineering.

Balance and stability
Frame geometry is designed to optimize 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.

HIGHLIGHTS

Built on a lightweight ALUXX aluminum frame that features classic hardtail design and the balanced riding characteristics of either larger diameter 29-inch or 27.5-inch wheels, Talon is a great choice for XC and trail riding. 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.

ALUXX ALUMINUM
Frame material features 6061 alloy with single-butted tubes to produce strong, lightweight framesets for a variety of different bikes and riding styles.

INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING
Derailleur, brake and dropper post cables are routed internally through integrated ports. This helps saves weight and creates a cleaner look and performance.

DROPPER POST COMPATIBLE
30.9mm seattube diameter and clean internal cable routing allows for easy dropper seatpost upgrade.

LOWER SEATSTAY JUNCTION
Rear triangle is designed with seatstays that meet the seat tube at a lower point below the top tube junction. This adds compliance for a smoother ride quality and helps reduce overall frame weight.

1X AND 2X COMPATIBLE
Frameset is designed to work with either a single chainring or double chainring crankset. For 2x setups, either a side-swing or down-swing front derailleur can be used.

INTEGRATED MOUNTS
Mounts on the seatstays and chainstays make it easy to accessorize with racks, fenders or a rear kickstand.
