Giant 2019 Talon 2
From dirt paths to singletrack trails, this aluminum hardtail will get you rolling with its smooth handling and confident control.
This lightweight ALUXX aluminum 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 optimized 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.
Proven alloy performance
ALUXX SL aluminum frameset is hand-built in-house by the world leader in aluminum engineering.
Traction and stability
Frame geometry is designed to optimize the confident, stable handling of 27.5 tires, and is ideal for rugged, adventurous terrain.
More relaxed frame geometry (compared to XC) and control-focused components deliver added control for trail riding conditions.
