THE BIKE

The Talon X Triis the perfect choice for triathletes looking for the best bike for their first triathlon or duathlon and beyond. This bike is capable of swinging for the fences with the pros!

Since 2007, the Talon was one of the first-ever aero 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 X is constructed of Kestrel's KSL (Kestrel Super Light) 800k high-modulus carbon fiber. 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 and aerodynamics are paramount to the Talon X and in addition to the frameset, Shimano's 105 components are the tried and true workhorse of the Shimano line, for quick, quiet and reliable shifting and control. Finally, stay aero with Oval Concepts 750 Clip-On Ergo Extension handlebars with Microshift bar-end 11-speed shifters at the helm. Whether you're climbing up hill or giving it your all on a straight away, the Kestrel Talon X Tri is built for speed and designed to win.

Features :

Kestrel KSL 800K high-modulus carbon fiber frame and KSL carbon fork
Shimano 105 11-speed components
Oval Concepts 750 Clip-On Ergo Extension handlebars with Microshift bar-end 11-speed shifters
Allows rider to choose either a road or triathlon-style position
Kestrel EMS Pro Aero Seatpost allows for the saddle to be mounted in a wide range of positions
Each of the frame sizes has unique tube lengths, diameters, shapes, and carbon layups to produce the Best possible ride quality for every size rider.

BICYCLING MAGAZINE USED A TALON ROAD FOR THE COVER AND LISTED IT AS A 'BEST BUY'. THIS SEES THE TALON GETTING AN UPGRADED FORK THAT IMPROVES AERODYNAMICS & STABILITY AS WELL AS A NEW SEAT CLAMP FOR EASIER POST ADJUSTMENTS. This Kestrel triathlon bicycle uses the same frame and adds pro-level Tri-bars and position to the mix for absolute speed when you need it.

"At Kestrel, there is a philosophy. “If you commit to the process, the results will follow”. The designers at Kestrel recognize that if you focus on only the end results, you are setting yourself up for failure. Just as you as a rider are committed to consistent training, diligent nutrition and racing hard, Kestrel is dedicated to building the best bicycles in the world - bikes that are worthy of your commitment as an athlete to be the vehicle that transfers your training into proven, tangible, results. Each Frame design, every part of every bike, is meticulously designed to make you go faster. You are putting in the time, so Kestrel is putting in their time too. Together, with Kestrel’s respective commitments to their craft, and your abilities as a rider, your riding accomplishments will be lifted to new heights."  

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.

Superb Ride
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.
