Kestrel Talon Tri 105 Bike 2014

Perhaps you are quite the recreational roadie who flounders at the thought of being tucked tightly into a hard-charging pack of riders during the heat of a race, but at the same time you want to put your miles and training to use through time trials and triathlons. Or maybe you’re quite the road racer who wants to take a whack at time trialing, or stage races. Whatever the circumstance may be, for most of us it’s not easy to cough up $2,000+ for a non-everyday bike that is limited on uses and capabilities. This is where the Kestrel Talon is in a league of its own.

Road bike? Triathlon bike? How about both! The Kestrel Talon Tri features a dual-platform geometry for a stable ride with both road and triathlon configurations. Now, we’re sure you’re wondering about how the varying riding positions between the two disciplines are optimized. The answer is in Kestrel’s EMS Pro seatpost for a wide range of saddle positions that meet both road and triathlon uses, and the Oval Concepts 350 6061 Alloy Base Handlebar with MicroShift Bar End Shifters and 750 Clip On Ergo Bend Extensions which allow you to tuck into the perfect time trialing position, keeping you as aero as possible. Planning on riding a fun century the following weekend? Simply dial in your saddle for long distance riding and go!

The Talon frame features aerodynamic tubing designed in the A2 Wind Tunnel for extraordinary speed. The frame and fork construction consists of a blend of 800K high-modulus carbon fiber with 700K intermediate-modulus carbon fiber for the ideal combination of lightweight and stiffness.

Kestrel knows there cannot be any compromises in rear shifting, which is exactly why the Talon is suited with the immensely reliable Shimano 105 rear derailleur for an unrivaled price to performance ratio. The front derailleur and cassette comes in Shimano Tiagra to keep the cost down and the reliablity up. Oval Concepts rounds out the suit with a 50/34T compact crankset with an integrated external bearing bottom bracket, and 701 brake levers. The Talon rolls on Oval Concepts 327 alloy clincher wheels lined with Vittoria Zaffiro Pro tires proving both durability and speed where the bike meets the pavement.

However you wish to show the competition what you’re made of, the Kestrel Talon will have you wreaking havoc on the weekend club rides or giving the clock a run for its money, whichever tickles your fancy. Why not both?

    Comments about Kestrel Talon TRI 105 Bike 2014:

    A really nice carbon fiber product, that has taken a pounding on city bike paths and cracking roads. Smoother than a pure alloy bike. A great value for an entry level aero bike. Has successfully completed a Triathlon and regular 25+ mile rides. Faster than a previous road bike that averaged 19+ mph in a 40 km. Have "dropped" many road bike riders. Also, have tinkered around with the bike and may try a Century or Ironman 70.3 someday. No regrets. The Talon is elevated, appreciated by Jenson USA!
