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.
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.
More relaxed frame geometry (compared to XC) and control-focused components deliver added control for trail riding conditions.****NOTE: This bike is available for purchase online, but must be picked up from an approved store.

We then take off a few simple parts to fit the bike into the box. We double check to ensure all the parts are enclosed, before sealing the box and sending to you.
