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.

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.

Wheel size:
- Size X-Small: 27.5-inch
