Product Description

Giant Talon 1 2017

New trail tuned geometry (68˚ head / 73˚ seat tube angle), Shimano hydro disc brakes & 2x10 Deore gears, the Talon 1 is more off-road ready than ever

Built on one of the world's most highly evolved alloy frames, this introduction to the Giant Talon range has all the essentials you look for in a bike that will encourage you to get out and enjoy the trails.

  • Sloping top tube for clearance.
  • 73 degree seat tube angle for efficient climbing.
  • Slack 68 degree head tube angle for confident downhilling and stability.
  • Short stem and wide bars for quick steering.
  • Coil-sprung SunTour fork features preload adjustment and hydraulic lockout.
  • The Shimano 2x10 Deore drivetrain offers a wider range of gears in a simpler format than a triple chainring setup
  • Its hydraulic disc brakes, like all mid-range Shimano outperforms anything at that price.
  • Why you should consider a bike with high quality hydraulic disc brakes.
  • Maxxis Icon 27.5x2.2" tyres are renowned for being fast and grippy.

The lightweight ALUXX aluminium Talon frame features classic off-road design that's updated with Giant's proven 27.5-inch wheel technology. The hardtail frame is designed to optimise the wheel size and its 100mm suspension fork. It's an ideal choice for aspiring off-road riders looking for a balanced blend of quickness and control on the trail.'
