FROM DIRT PATHS TO SINGLETRACK TRAILS, THIS ALUMINIUM HARDTAIL WILL GET YOU ROLLING WITH ITS SMOOTH HANDLING AND CONFIDENT CONTROL.
This lightweight ALUXX aluminium frameset features classic off-road design made specifically for 27.5 wheels to strike just the right balance between control and quickness. The hardtail frame is optimized for a 100mm suspension fork, which helps soak up trail obstacles and improve control. For aspiring off-road riders looking to climb a little faster and get more comfortable riding singletrack, Talon is your ticket to XC adventures.
PROVEN ALLOY PERFORMANCE
ALUXX SL aluminium frameset is hand-built in-house by the world leader in aluminum engineering.
TRACTION AND STABILITY
