Product Details

2016 Giant Talon 27.5 3

Giant's Talon 27.5 3 gives you the acceleration and lightweight feel of a 26-inch wheel, with the traction and efficiency of a 29er. That means it's mega fun on trails, city paths, and everywhere else. It all starts with Giant's ALUXX aluminum frame that's tough, yet responsive, just what you need for off-road excursions. Then you get a Suntour fork with 100mm of suspension and precise steering. It's packed full of Shimano components with 27 speeds for hill-climbing, and Tektro disc brakes for great speed control. And, 27.5-inch Giant wheels and tires grip with authority and roll over anything in your way.

    Comments:

    I ride intermediate single track trails with this and on the road. The stock SR Suntour (not air) shock so far has held up decently but I will be upgrading to an air shock to be able to take bigger hits and smoother ride on the single tracks. You will want better pedals for sure as the stock pedals are plastic. Shifting can be a bit clunky/slow unload heavy load (up steeper hills offroad) but overall not to bad to make me want to upgrade right away. For the price of this bike, it is not a bad deal compared with the other major brands out there.

    Comments:

    Im female, 5'8" and this bike fits me perfectly. It has been a long while since Ive had/ridden a bike. I've been riding almost eveyday and I feel really confident on this bike...so much fun. I did have to change out the saddle to a womens specific...the stock was killing me, but now it's all good.

    Comments:

    I bought this bike expecting it to be able to handle rough terrain, jumps, a few crashes here and there( that's what you buy it for, right? ) instead several things broke after the 2nd ride. To be optimistic, I will be upgrading the lacking areas and ill always ride giant, but I was disappointed. spend a few hundred more and avoid these issues.

    I use the Talon 27.5 3 as a daily commuter to and from school. Sometimes the roads are rougher than the trails. This bike is what I need rather than a hybrid because the bigger tires can take more abuse than thinner tires. So far this bike has proved itself to be a keeper. It looks heavier than it really is, and the ride is very smooth. 9/10!
