  • 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.


Built on a lightweight ALUXX frameset and modern geometry, the Talon range delivers confident XC performance for aspiring trail riders. Tailored for specific ride characteristics, it’s available in different wheel sizes (29 or 27.5) and either an 80mm or 100mm suspension fork. Here are some of the Talon’s key technologies:

This performance level frame material features 6061 alloy with single-butted tubes to produce strong, lightweight framesets for a variety of different bikes and riding styles.
Choose either 100mm or 80mm of travel (depending on model and size) for a smoother, more controlled ride on XC terrain
Derailleur and rear brake cables are routed internally from integrated ports near the headtube to an exit point below the bottom bracket. This helps create a cleaner look and protection from the elements.
30.9mm seattube diameter and clean internal cable routing allows for easy dropper seatpost upgrade
Rear triangle is designed with seatstay tubes that meet seattube at a lower point below the top tube junction. This adds compliance for a smoother ride quality and helps reduce overall frame weight.
Frameset is designed to work with either a single or double chainring crankset. For 2X setups, either a side-swing or down-swing front derailleur can be used
Mounts on the seatstays and chainstays make it easy to accessorize with racks, fenders or a rear kickstand
