Built on a new lightweight ALUXX aluminium frame that features classic hardtail design plus the balanced riding characteristics of the larger diameter 29-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.
