The Talon E+ 2 runs the larger capacity 500Wh battery compared to the Talon E+ 3 for only $200 extra. We have chosen the Talon E+ 2 as our base model for affordable and practical hardtail riding in Hawke's Bay.
The trail is calling, and here’s how to answer. This balanced, smooth-riding E-bike gives you a smooth boost of power and total control, so you can have more fun and expand your off-road riding capabilities.
With a lightweight aluminium frame that blends classic hardtail design with modern E-bike technology, Talon E+ 29 delivers comfort and confidence on off-road terrain. Perfect for bike paths or XC trails, it features a SyncDrive Core motor system that makes those hard climbs easier and encourages you to extend your ride time. It’s designed for a 100mm suspension fork to smooth out the bumps and its 29-inch wheels give it a stable, balanced ride quality. The side-release EnergyPak 500 battery is integrated into the frame and can be easily removed for charging. The RideControl ONE control lets you adjust settings as you ride.
