Giant has two new up and coming bikes in 2011. These are single speeds under their sub-grand category.

The Talon 29er 1 has a hydro-formed aluminum “Alux” frame. The suspension fork used is the SR “Raidon 29”. The lock out has 100mm travel with a 15QR Giant branded hub.

The brakes used for the Talon 29er 1 are “ROOT” hydraulic brakes. It also has a SRAM X-5 shifting gear and comes in sizes small, medium, large and extra large. The geometric design is similar to Giant’s XTC 29”er line. The Talon 29er 1 has a head tube of approximately 70.5 angles, matching the 73 degree set tube angles.

The Talon 29er 2 shares the hydro-formed “Alux” frame specifications as with the Talon 29er 1. Some differentiation are the SRAM X-4 shifting and the SR “XTC 29” for the fork which also gives lockout with 100mm travel. Unlike the Talon 29er 1 which has 9 speed, the Talon 29er 2 drops to 8 speed only.

Other highlights on the Talon 29er 2 are the Hayes MX-4 mechanical disc brakes and Maxxis CrossMArk tires. Sizes also come in small, medium, large and extra large.

The average retail price for the Talon 29er 1 is $975.00 while the Talon 29er 2 costs $750.00.
