Giant started out building Chromoly frames in 1972 and have since pioneered the construction of Aluminium and Composite frames and components. Many of their high-end bikes have won championships and design awards, and with over 12,000 Giant dealers around the world, their long standing reputation clearly precedes them.

Push the pace on climbs, let loose on the descents. This aluminium hardtail gives you a feel for the trail with balanced, confident handling and a plush suspension fork.

Highlights

Built on a lightweight ALUXX aluminum frame that features classic hardtail design and the balanced riding characteristics of either larger diameter 29-inch or 27.5-inch wheels, Talon is a great choice for XC and trail riding. 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.

ALUXX Aluminum

Frame material features 6061 alloy with single-butted tubes to produce strong, lightweight framesets for a variety of different bikes and riding styles.

Interal Cable Routing

Derailleur, brake and dropper post cables are routed internally through integrated ports. This helps saves weight and creates a cleaner look and performance.

Dropper Post Compatible

30.9mm seattube diameter and clean internal cable routing allows for easy dropper seatpost upgrade.

Lower Seatstay Junction

Rear triangle is designed with seatstays that meet the seat tube at a lower point below the top tube junction. This adds compliance for a smoother ride quality and helps reduce overall frame weight.

1x and 2x Compatible

Frameset is designed to work with either a single chainring or double chainring crankset. For 2x setups, either a side-swing or down-swing front derailleur can be used.

Integrated Mounts

Mounts on the seatstays and chainstays make it easy to accessorize with racks, fenders or a rear kickstand.

Key Performance Factors

Proven alloy performance

Aluxx aluminium frameset is hand-built in-house by the world leader in aluminium engineering.

Balance and stability

Frame geometry is designed to optimize the balance and roll-over capabilities of 29-inch wheels or the liveliness of 27.5-inch wheels (depending on frame size).

XC control

Suspension fork offers either 80mm or 100mm of smooth travel for added XC control.
