Giant Talon 1 2022 Hardtail Mountain Bike Black

4.5 out of 5 Customer Rating

The Details

Built with a lightweight ALUXX aluminium frame that has a classic hardtail design with balanced riding characteristics. The Talon is a great choice for XC or light trail terrain. The frame geometry is designed to adapt to the chosen wheel size and fork size (80 or 100mm depending on frame size). It provides a confident ride that gives ambitious riders who want to take their off-road skills to the next level.

The ALUXX aluminium frameset is hand-built in-house by the world leader in aluminium engineering, and the frame geometry is designed to optimise the liveliness of 27.5-inch wheels.

XC Control - The suspension fork offers either 80mm or 100mm of smooth travel for added XC control. Please note that some models may either come with a Rockshox or Giant SXC32-2 fork, please check before ordering.

  • Shimano Deore rear derailleur
  • Tektro HDC hydraulic brakes
  • Kenda Booster 27.5 inch tyres

Our Verdict

Get a feel for the trail with this new aluminium hardtail this is made for aspiring singletrack riders. With playful 27.5-inch wheels you can push the pace on climbs and let loose down the descents.
