Giant Talon 2 29ER (2023)
GET A FEEL FOR THE TRAIL WITH THIS CLASSIC HARDTAIL MADE FOR ASPIRING SINGLETRACK RIDERS. IT FEATURES LARGER DIAMETER 29-INCH WHEELS THAT GIVE IT ADDED STABILITY ON XC TERRAIN—SO YOU CAN PUSH THE PACE ON CLIMBS AND LET LOOSE ON THE DESCENTS.
Built on a new lightweight ALUXX aluminum frame that features classic hardtail design plus the balanced riding characteristics of either larger diameter 29-inch or 27.5-inch wheels, Talon is a great choice for XC or light trail terrain. The frame geometry is specifically designed to adapt to its respective wheel size and either an 80mm or 100mm suspension fork (depending on frame size). It’s a confident ride that’s perfect for ambitious riders who want to take their off-road skills to the next level.
