Brand NEW Kestrel Talon X Carbon Road Bikes +NEW Shimano 105 22 Speed
Getting ready for a big ride event? The Talon is the perfect choice for riders seeking road bike handling with tri bike speed. The Kestrel Talon Shimano 105 road bike features a full carbon frame and fork, Shimano 105 11-speed components, and Oval Concepts 327 wheels.
Launched 10years ago, the Talon was one of the first-ever aero road bikes on the market and has been immensely popular ever since for its versatility. Ahead of its time in adjustability, the Talon allows rider to choose either a road or triathlon-style position. The Talon is constructed of Kestrel's super lightweight 800K high-modulus carbon fibers. It's lightweight and stiff, yet also designed to offer a bit more compliance. Designed in the A2 Wind Tunnel, the stays, seat post, and seat tube are aerodynamically contoured; plus, fully internal cable routing ensures clean airflow over the entire bike.
Efficiency is paramount to the Talon 105. The Shimano 105 components offer comfortable ergonomics and dependable shifts. Tektro dual pivot brakes apply plenty of stopping power to the low-spoke count Oval Concepts 327 wheels with Vittoria Zaffiro Pro tires.
Constructed of Kestrel's Enhanced Modulus Hybrid (EMH) carbon - a combination of 800K and 700K carbon fibers - it's lightweight and stiff, yet also designed to offer a bit more compliance. Designed in the A2 Wind Tunnel, the stays, seat post, and seat tube are aerodynamically contoured; plus, fully internal cable routing ensures clean airflow over the entire bike. Proprietary Kestrel H-Stays - the uniquely, asymmetrically shaped seat stays and chainstays - are designed to improve lateral stiffness and thus power transfer, while also supplying vibration dampening.
Kestrel's geometry has been painstakingly refined to maximize ride comfort and handling grip.
