Giant has upgraded its long-time most popular model Boulder 1 for 2012 and named it Talon 2. Made from ALUXX SL, which stands for a higher quality aluminum Super Light, the Talon range features a topnotch alloy that gives 18% more tensile strength than the ALUXX used in the Boulder range.

Top quality parts guarantee that the bike not only offers trouble-free rides but durability that will make the machine last for years. An ample equipment upgrade from the original Boulder model puts the Talon 2 at the top of its game as an entry-level off-road mountain bike.

With its lightweight ALUXX SL frameset, the 2012 Giant Talon 2 Mountain Bike can tackle the specific geometry requirements of 26in wheels. As a great all-rounder, this is ideal for recreational level, bike paths, bumpy tracks and more arduous off-road cycling.
