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 optimised 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.

Key Performance Factors

Proven alloy performance

ALUXX SL aluminium frameset is hand-built in-house by the world leader in aluminium engineering.

Traction and stability

Frame geometry is designed to optimise the confident, stable handling of 27.5 tyres, and is ideal for rugged, adventurous terrain.

Trail tuned

More relaxed frame geometry (compared to XC) and control-focused components deliver added control for trail riding conditions.

  • Weight
    The most accurate way to determine any bike’s weight is to have your local dealer weigh it for you. Many brands strive to list the lowest possible weight, but in reality weight can vary based on size, finish, hardware and accessories. All our bikes are designed for best-in-class weight and ride quality.
