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 X. The Shimano Dura Ace 9100 components offer comfortable ergonomics and dependable shifts.
Constructed of Kestrel's Enhanced KSL carbon — advanced engineered of 800K 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.
The uniquely, asymmetrically shaped seat stays and chainstays – are designed to improve lateral stiffness and thus power transfer, while also supplying vibration dampening.
Kestrel Aero Seatpost allows for the saddle to be mounted in a wide range of positions — more forward for tri use or backward for road.

Highest Quality Carbon
Since 1987, Kestrel has been meticulously hand-building their carbon frames using the tightest quality control standards in the industry. Their goal - perfecting the science of speed. Kestrel was the first to launch an all carbon bike and thus wrote the book on bicycle performance: weight, stiffness, efficiency, and even the shape of the bicycle itself. With over 20 years of carbon fiber experience under their belts, Kestrel is a name you can feel confident in.
Kestrel's geometry has been painstakingly refined to maximize ride comfort and handling grip. Every Kestrel frame comes with a matching, frame-specific fork that's engineered and ride tuned for perfectly balanced handling with a sensitive road feel and superb ride comfort. The Talon has been said to have one of "the most aero frames you can legally race".
As in the award winning RT700, the Talon uses Kestrel's unmatched carbon fiber know-how for a superior riding experience. Superb stiffness, superior strength, durability and Kestrel's legendary aerodynamic geometry lend to a road-smoothing ride with precise handling and efficient power transfer. Size-specific tuning optimizes the ride for every size, so you get the same precise handling with a responsive feel regardless of how big you are or where you ride.
